While we wait patiently for The Mac Pro Tube and the next revision to FCPX , I thought I’d post this. It’s been kicking around for a month or so but it’s worth a repost. A screen grab time-lapse of Editor Jesse Jokela cutting a Finnish reality show, Beyond Human Boundaries, in FCPX. Apparently, he didn’t get the memo that nobody uses FCPX. Shot on a Canon 5DMarkIII, The show was cut in FCPX and graded in Resolve Lite. This particular episode was also mixed in FCPX 10.0.9. I guess you can do audio in FCPX too. What a surprise!
Seasons 1&2 of the show have been hugely successful in Finland, and have also been broadcast in over 130 countries worldwide (through Discovery and BBC). They are working on English dubbed versions now for wider distribution. Jesse says he made the time lapse for himself “…and to give a glimpse to an outsider of how much goes into editing an episode of tv.” I suggest watching the time-lapse full screen in 1080p. It’s pretty cool, even for a jaded editor like me. 😉
And here’s a trailer, in Finnish, for the series.
