I dove right into 10.0.6 with a project I am editing. It works a treat. It is great to be able to selectively paste settings between clips, something sorely missed in earlier versions. The new handling of compound clips will make it easier to use them as building blocks in timelines.

While everyone was busy working or busy keeping an eye on new iMacs and iPads Apple pushed out the FCP X update they promised back during NAB. The update is available via the App Store.

So little in fact that “new” would [...]
After four months on order, my Canon C300 has arrived. The C300 is the first of Canon’s line of Cinema EOS cameras – inverting what was the standard with their DSLRs. In this case, creating a camera designed from the ground up to shoot video not stills.
Its form factor is [...]
