Raising The Bar On Non-Broadcast Output: Mastering and Encoding with Video Purifier and x264

Raising The Bar On Non-Broadcast Output: Mastering and Encoding with Video Purifier and x264

Consider this: you’re taking your pristine, carefully crafted video file--the product of countless hours of work--and running it through a process that will literally throw away up to 90% of the information! In this tutorial, David shares a simple workflow he uses to prepare finished video files for non-broadcast delivery. Using these tools and settings, he's able to create master files that look better than their edited source, and encoded files that are virtually indistinguishable from their masters.

Boris Soundbite: Dialogue Search for Apple Final Cut Pro
  Play Video
Final Cut Studio Master Trainer Steve Kanter introduces Boris Soundbite, a software application that quickly and accurately finds any word or phrase spoken in recorded media. Video editors, producers, and journalists can instantly play all occurrences of a spoken phrase in their media, then insert the perfect take into their Final Cut Pro project, organize clips around keywords, and even find replacement words for problematic audio. Based on Nexidia's patented dialogue search technology, Boris Soundbite greatly reduces logging and transcription costs and lets you spend your time being creative instead of manually searching hours of video.

Neat Video: Removing Noise and Grain from your Footage

Neat Video: Removing Noise and Grain from your Footage
  Play Video
In this video tutorial you will learn how to use the Neat Video plug-in for multiple applications. Although demonstrated in After Effects, the work-flow is essentially the same for all these applications: After Effects, Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, Motion, Nuke, Fusion, Vegas Pro, etc. This powerful but simple to use plug-in can clean up noisy footage by applying a sophisticated and advanced algorithm to work out what's noise and what's details in your footage and then remove just the noise. This is done by profiling the noise properties in an area of a video frame without visible features. Once the noise has been profiled, Neat Video is guided by this profile to reduce and eliminate noise while not touching the video details. Although mostly automatic, Neat Video still leaves you with total control over the amount of filtering you apply and even offers optional sharpening (without sharpening the noise) should you wish it.

Fixing Assets in FCP using XML

Fixing Assets in FCP using XML

In this FCP tutorial, Matt Lyon will provide a step by step guide for fixing a major issue with the way Final Cut Pro imports audio and still image files using a FCP XML file and TextEdit. Incorrectly imported assets can lead to serious problems down the road, especially with Media Manager. Matt also provides a guideline for re-importing audio and still image media correctly, as an alternative to the XML fix.

This Soundtrack Pro video tutorial covers two useful techniques for fixing dialogue used in documentaries or other productions. 1) Time stretching for dialogue will fit a bit of dialogue as needed within a scene, and 2) Matching voice levels between two or more dialogue clips will make one clip sound more like another. Both tasks are easy to do for anyone working within Final Cut Studio, and this tutorial will walk you through the two procedures.

Transfer FCP Sequences to Avid Media Composer with Boris AAF
  Play Video
Boris AAF Transfer is a custom Apple Final Cut Pro plug-in that lets you export AAF files from Final Cut Pro sequences for import into Avid Media Composer or Avid DS. Because the entire live FCP program sequence is transferred - with media, markers, cuts, dissolves, filters, and audio preserved - the transferred sequence can be edited and finished in the Media Composer or DS timeline without returning to FCP.
