Session highlights

Here are the highlights to take away from the video.

  • Patrick is a fan of FCP X, but needed to share a project across his team, something that is not always easy to do with FCP X libraries.
  • His new workflow uses a Jellyfish server to locally store libraries for multiple users, and Kyno + for logging and sharing clips.
  • Footage logs in Kyno automatically become FCP X keywords, making the workflow efficient and robust.
  • With the new integration inside Kyno, sharing footage between local and cloud storage is seamless, making remote edits even easier.
  • Patrick’s innovative approach makes synchronized libraries a true collaborative editing workflow inside of FCP X.
