CreativePact (18 posts)

Looping video techniques and Apple's divisive video editor Final Cut Pro X will be the focus of this year's CreativePact exploration.

CreativePact 2013 begins


Soon it will be September 1st. What does that mean? CreativePact will soon be underway of course. Akin to my very first CreativePact in 2010, this year I will be focussing on one piece of software: the much maligned Apple Final Cut Pro X.

Truth be told, I quite like the look of FCPX – it's actually Final Cut Pro 7 I find a pain to use (this is most likely because I'm not a digital film professional, and so do not know where FCPX is deficient from that perspective). I may provide a running critique of the software as I go.

So, my plan for the CreativePact is to approach FCPX from this non-professional stance as a material generation and processing tool. I have no grand delusions of creating a masterwork here: really, I want to see what is possible in the video domain, which will inform future creative directions.

Alongside posting to this very documentation site, I will post any videos I create to my Vimeo page. Bring it on!
