    • NX1/NX500 Hack Test Footage
      kidzrevil, Can you detail your settings in the latest video you uploaded?:  
    • Petition for Samsung NX1 hack
      Would really like to see an option with a key combination to trim the last X minutes of video as a separte clip. Kind of a dashcam functionality, might even stop the recording.
      Not sure if the trim functionality is avilable at this time via scripts?
      Alternatively a datetime save to text file would allow for that in post.

      Or even better (hopefully!) the Kinefinity Tera 4K when it comes out! 
    • Boost Performance for 4K editing on a Macbook Pro Mid 2012?
      4K can be challenging to edit on even higher end machines.  Since FCPX has seamless, built-in proxy support, your best approach is transcode to proxy on either import or afterward. This will yield a major editing speed improvement and doesn't cost anything. Procedure: - Select clips in Event Browser  - Right-click, select "transcode media", then pick "Create proxy media" - In upper-right corner of viewer, click drop down triangle and select "Proxy". Do not select "optimized", since that will take up too much space in your specific situation. - Before final export to a file, change viewer back to "optimized/original", else output will be in proxy resolution In most cases editing H264 content (even 4K) is not extremely I/O bound due to the compressed nature. It is generally CPU bound and effects often use the GPU. However editing itself, rendering the timeline (minus effects) and exporting (ie encoding) to a file are typically CPU bound operations. So you want good I/O performance but if you are already bottlenecked on the CPU then infinitely fast I/O won't help. Using proxy media greatly reduces the CPU burden. That said, it is good practice to have your media on a different drive than your boot drive. The HGST Touro S 7200 rpm USB 3 drive is quite good for a bus-powered drive but it's not equal to an AC-powered 3.5" external drive. You could move your media to the Touro drive and see if this helps. The 2012 MacBook Pros have USB 3.0 so at least you don't have the problem caused by slow USB 2.0 ports.
