As they say, it's not the destination that's important, it's the journey, and that can be said about a lot of things. We as editors take things for granted, without appreciating where it came from. As a Shake user, I loved SmoothCam, and when I found out they were brining it to Final Cut Studio 2, I was really excited. I decided, for this article, to look at SmoothCam, where it came from, and how it evolved from Shake.
As I say in the video, SmoothCam is a very welcome addition to Final Cut Pro 6, and I think it really shows the future of Final Cut Pro effects work, and with Background Processing, the future looks very bright indeed!
