Exactly a year ago I started using Apple´s FCPX and immediately jumped into it on a big production. It became a FCPX-MegaTest and I blogged about my experiences here: http://fcpxmegatest.blogspot.co.at/2011/07/using-peakbreak-as-our-first-fcp-x.html
It is time for another Peakbreak production this week. We are packing the gear and preparing for 9 days of shooting with 5 camcorders (one Canon C300, two Sony EX-1, one Canon 7D, one Panasonic HVX200) and several GoPros.
This time it will be much smoother experience. FCPX has grown with 5 updates, my Macbook Pro has an i7 CPU a much better GPU and 16GB of RAM and we, Alban Egger and Stefan Krösbacher, have used FCPX on dozens of high-quality productions now and know how to use it.
Since I just relaunched my site with a blog-feature, this year I can do it here. So we invite you to follow us and see how on-the-road-productions are done in FCPX 10.0.5 (at least how we do them ;-) )
Peakbreak is a bicycle-race for hobbyists in Austria and Switzerland, where the riders have to bike mountain-stages for 8 days. They have to compete on some very legendary climbs like Groglockner, Monte Zoncolan and the Kitzbüheler Horn. Here is the race-site.
We bring these camcorders + audiogear a Cinevate Atlas slider, 2 Macbook Pros, 1 WD MyBook (2TB), 1 Samsung USB-backup drive (2TB), an iPad and some rain-covers for all that.
