I posted this pic the other day after cleaning my bay. In lieu of actual blog content, I thought I should annotate it. 🙂
In response to this tongue in cheek post on Creative Cow:
The POOP emoji does not work with the new 3D text in Motion or FCPX.
Obviously not caring about the pros here.
I have created an exciting new font! It consists of one character, accessed via typing the letter A. You can get it here. Use it wisely! lol
This popped up on twitter recently… You can use Emoji characters or Symbols to “rate” things in FCP X. Thing is, you can use them in, like, any text fields. Not sure if it’s a good thing if you share Libraries with other people, but it sure is fun!. Name Keyword Collections, Folders, Events etc. Add notes, even name your clips… Use CTRL-CMD-Spacebar or OPT-CMD-T to select your symbol. 🙂
Here’s a link to the original tweeter.
In lieu of actual interesting content, I wanted to share this just, uh… because. The job I was on today is one that I could basically come up with a slightly ridiculous idea and run with it. So I cut a spot with a grid overlay, some other generated grid lines moving around (thanks Simon!) multiple resized/retimed clips filling up the grid, piles of sfx, all comped over a BG clip.
Not gonna win any awards, not terribly complicated in the grand scheme of things, and it may never see the light of day… but it was fun. What made it even more fun was the fact that I could assemble the giant pile of stuff below, and play and edit it in real time, full resolution, unrendered.
Could I have have done this in another NLE? Sure. The source was SD, so not really surprising, but it just made me smile doing this in X, so I thought I’d write this. Better than nothing right? 🙂
