There is a new feature called “Project Snapshots” in version 10.1 of Final Cut Pro.
And it’s a solution to a problem. This new video shows you the possible problem and how “Project Snapshots” can help fix it.

Final Cut Pro X libraries are new in version 10.1, and they are super-useful.
Yes, they’re different from what we’ve had before, but they make thing so much better, it’s worth spending some time getting to know how they work and how they can benefit you.
A Final Cut Pro X library packages all your events, projects, and media into one simple (and very portable) container.
I’m a big fan of this change, and I hope this video helps you understand libraries a little more:

AVCHD video can be confusing.
When you’re shooting video, you see on your camera that you have several different clips. But when you plug the card into your computer and look at the files, you can’t see the individual video clips.
If you dig deep, you’ll find mysterious MTS files, but when you try to open them in a video player, it doesn’t work.
How can you copy or move a single video clip? How can you open them in a video player without bringing them into your video editing software?
This video shows a tool called ClipWrap that I find useful for working with AVCHD video clips on a Mac. I hope you find this brief tour helpful.

I don’t use my iPhone for casual video. In fact I almost never use it to shoot video of any kind anymore.
This is a recent change for me (as of a few months ago), and I’ll explain why in a moment.
This is a contrarian position, I realize. It seems that most people are fine with using their iPhone to shoot casual video (such as for video blogging, which is the most common style of casual video I currently shoot). In fact, for several years I’ve even recommended the iPhone as a great video shooting option.
But I’ve changed my mind. It doesn’t make sense for me anymore, and I think it likely doesn’t make sense for a lot of people.
Here are 6 reasons I don’t use my iPhone for video anymore:
