Passionate about film, even more passionate about people. Making documentaries is a privileged mix of that. More work on http://janwillemdenbok.nl
I am without any experience on Premiere. But coming from FCP7 to FCPX one of the major USP's of FCPX is organisation. It saved me very much time and helped me (with FCPXTRA) to tame 4TB of material, gathered over the course of 4 years. And I'm happy Michael Matzdorff, first ass. editor on 'Focus' calls FCPX one of the deepest NLE's he knows (he has worked with it all) and he tweets that FCPXTRA is great bit of tech. https://twitter.com/FCPxFeatures/status/617029012502614016
I think you miss an opportunity here. A lot of people are really happy with it, because talking to your edit-program helps you to add loads of metadata without typing it, clicking your mouse etc. I've used this for my documentary in South Sudan, 4 TB filmed over the course of 4 years...I completely lost my way in it. But with notes and keywords FCPXTRA/FCPX gives you unique and deep access. I useDictation more and more, relieving me from annoying typing on phone or computer. Siri is perfect for me. But if you don't like to talk to your computer I understand...it's a bit weird.
Hello Ole, I tried that with Soundflower routing to Dictation, but it seems that this possibility (which used to function up to OSX 10.9) is disabled in Yosemite 10.10. Google more about that.
Beautiful. I can't paste photo's in comments, but I remember following an indigenous tribe in the jungle of the Philippines when a huge rain fell over us, like a shower, coming from nowhere, suddenly. To protect our gear we dived in our bags, searching for rain covers. I couldn't find it. Worried, soaked wet, I looked up to my camera that I'd given to a native Philippine 'indian', afraid my camera would be drowned by then. But the man had simply chopped of a banana-leaf, using it as an umbrella, keeping himself and my camera dry, waiting for me to finish my business. One minute later the rain stopped as suddenly as it had started. He threw away the banana-leaf and we went on. I've never used a rain-cover that journey anymore.
