Mounting Camera To Auto Headset
Mounting Camera To Auto Headset
I have been asked by a few people to give some more nuts'n'bolts information on the mounts I have in the Monaro. First up, we'll look at the headrest mount. It's quite a simple affair on the surface, in being a bracket that wraps around the 'posts' of the lifted headrest, and this is then tightened by a couple of butterfly/wingnuts. Read More

Documenting A Road Trip Via Video
Documenting A Road Trip Via Video
The Monaro is to be wired up with a phalanx of camcorders; a Kaiser Baas dashcam is mounted on the windscreen with a 64GB Sandisk card, a Sony HDD DCR-SR200 Handycam is on a Hague headrest mount (no relation by the way), and a Canon Legria Mini-X 'action cam' is to perform roving boundary rider camcorder duties when not mounted to another Hague mount, a suction based heavy duty unit kitted out with Manfrotto hardware. Audio is also well catered for too. An Azden wireless mic setup with a label lav mic will record dialogue to a Samsung Recorder, a RØDE VideoMic Go on the Sony will record ambience, suitably backed up with a RØDE Videomic 2 on the Legria.

Final Cut Pro X provides a number of interesting ways to animate video elements in the Viewer and Timeline to provide complex visual effects.

Render the Fat in Final Cut Pro X
Render files are the video files that Final Cut Pro creates when you make adjustments to your video clips. Add a filter or transition, crop the image change the clip's speed, and Final Cut Pro has to create brand new video files using your original media and applying the changes. When the video is played in the project timeline, the render files are played in place of the original video clips, where you have added effects. But what do you do if the render files become corrupt? Or when projects are completed and you want to back them up without the render files? Read More

Command and Conquer Your Keyboard Commands
Command and Conquer Your Keyboard Commands
Final Cut Pro has provided keyboard shortcuts for the vast majority of its functions, but there have always been a few features or functions where it made sense to have a keyboard shortcut, but none was pre-built and ready to use. In legacy versions of Final Cut Pro you could add, remove or modify keyboard shortcuts by using the Keyboard Layout tools. In Final Cut Pro X you use the Commands feature to add, remove, modify, and otherwise manage changes to keyboard shortcuts. In this tutorial you'll learn how to add new shortcuts for functions that don't have them, how to create new Command Sets, and how to export and import command sets to access these shortcuts across multiple editing stations.

Reconnecting with Lost Video by Relinking
Final Cut Pro X manages all of your media files by grouping them in various Events that you create. This makes it more difficult, but not impossible, for media files to go missing. Events can be moved, deleted or renamed, and Apple recommends that you do these operations from within Final Cut Pro itself so that FCPX can always properly keep track of the media files. But there will be times when you move, delete, or rename files directly in the Finder, and that could prevent FCPX from properly referencing the media files. Read More
