Final Cut Pro X is perhaps one of the most important pieces of software ever made, making professional video editing tools in the hands of ambitious filmmakers for a relatively affordable price.
Film editor Bradley Olsen decided last year that it was time for the crowdfunding to tell a movie about the app. That movie – Off The Tracks – is now available on iTunes, and if you're quick and can get to New York, you can buy free tickets next month for the premiere …
It starts with the controversial introduction of version 10, which completely reinvented the user interface, and caused dismay and panic among many filmmakers and editors who used the previous user interface.
Video professionals and software developers are competing for Apple's controversial decision to radically redesign their popular video editing program Final Cut Pro. With the release of Final Cut Pro X in 2011, many video editors chose to switch to other more familiar systems instead of learning Apple's new editing application. In the aftermath of this exodus, Apple continued to develop Final Cut Pro X and today it is used by millions of creators around the world. This documentary explores the ideas that were used to make Final Cut Pro X and how it is used for everything from YouTube video to Hollywood movies. Change is radical.
Among the interviewees for the documentary is Randy Ubillos, maker of Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, Aperture, iMovie and Final Cut Pro X. Other include:
- Michael Cioni, vice president of innovation at Panavision and Light Iron.
- Glenn Ficarra, director of the first major Hollywood feature film edited in Final Cut Pro X: Focus.
- Sam Mestman, founder of LumaForge, makes shared storage optimized for Final Cut Pro X and leads different filmmaker community & # 39; s.
- Gergana Angelova, behind the scenes video editor for Expendables 3
- Peter Wiggins, a Final Cut Pro X editor broadcast that also runs FCP.co
The movie is available to rent or purchase on iTunes ($ 4.99 / $ 9.99), but if you live in New York or are there next month, you can sign up for free tickets to the official premiere.
