Welcome to the TDMD Daily Tip Podcast. My name is Marcelo Lewin. The digital media dude.
In the previous Podcast, tip number 12. I showed you how to Playhead-Centered Zooming functionality works and changes to nested sequences. In this final episode covering the updates to Final Cut Pro version 6.0.2, I covered a few other minor changes in the application.
So let’s get started. Okay, so here we are in Final Cut Pro 6.0.2. One of the features that the release notes talks about is the ability to start a Final Cut Pro with the blank project by shift clicking the application icon. Now personally I have tried that. I have tried doing that in the applications folder and in my doc by shift clicking the icon and every time it comes up. It comes up with my last project that I loaded. So I’m not sure if this is something that’s a bug. That is particular to my system or actually a implementation bug from Apple, but regardless. That’s one of the extra features would be a next feature for a work to my system.
Moving on to other minor changes, the imported still video gamma option which is in the editing tab of the user preferences, so if we go to Final Cut Pro user preferences editing tab and then right here you can see the Imported Still Video Gamma option was renamed to Imported Still/RGB Gamma. Let me cancel out in here. Under the zoom right here which is correct for aspect ratio that used to be show square pixels. So that was another rename.
The other thing that I wanted to show you was, let’s load up this clip. We’ll go to motion and go to drop shadow and the offset. The default has been changed from 10 originally to now two.
And of the last things that changed and you will notice immediately after you open up any project in 6.0.2. That was created in earlier version is that it will convert it to the new version which means that any projects created in 6.0.2 will not be backward compatible. You will not be able to share them or open them with anyone else that has any other version except 6.0.2 and that includes version 6.0.1. You will not be able to open that.
Well that’s it for this series covering the updates to Final Cut Pro 6.0.2. Of course I didn’t cover all the changes in the application, but I hope these Podcast gave you a taste of some of the cool stuff I this .01 upgrade.
Now go have fun with the new Final Cut Pro version and if you haven’t listened to previous Podcast, check out tip number 10, number 11 and number 12. All of which concentrate on the updates to Final Cut Pro 6.0.2. Well that’s it for now, so until the next Podcast. This is Marcelo Lewin, the digital media dude. Cheers.
