February 2015 was another edition of #28daysofquicktips. This year’s edition followed up 28 Days of Quicktips from 2009 and 2011. We asked for reader Quicktips again this year (those are in bold below) and got a lot of good submissions so thank you for those. This year’s breakdown: 8 FCPX tips, 7 Adobe Premiere Pro, 8 Avid Media Composer and 6 other or multi-NLE tips. Maybe we can do it again in another year or two! Happy editing.
Final Cut Pro X
Day 1 – Minimize Interview Roles in FCPX
Adobe Premiere Pro CC
Avid Media Composer
Austin Flack sent over Day 27 and this tip took the prize as the (my) favorite as Austin won the copy of The Color Correction Handbook. Not only was this a tip that I learned something from but this tip generated a lot of discussion on an Avid editor Facebook group. And this tip could also be used in Adobe Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro 7.
Other non-NLE specific tips
Day 15 – Sync Folders on a Mac
Filmmakers go-to destination for pre-production, production & post production equipment!
