I’m pleased to announce that fcpximageexporter is now available on the Mac App Store!

Over the last year or so quite a few people contacting me asking for support for fcpxml v1.7.
I took the opportunity to rewrite the app in Swift and add some more funcionality such as custom export resolutions. The next major release should include the ability to export a simple html page of the exported clips.

latest reel of Magician and friend Adam Mada

About 2 months ago I went to see my friends Australian Magician Adam Mada, Susie and their young son Finn over in Buenos Aires. It was a great weekend. Adam handed me a disk with videos of his work as a magician and asked me to cut him a reel. Australian Magician Adam Mada returned to Australia with his family and I returned to Santiago and we worked together over various screen sharing sessions and produced his latest reel. Here it is:

fcpxImageExporter and my 5 minutes of coding fame

A little while ago at Orangutan we had a client ask us to export several hundred frames from a 1 hour video we had produced for them.

We worked in fcpx and manually exporting frames can be quite a task.

So I spent a late afternoon putting together a little app to read fcpxml and use it to export still images based on the markers we had put in the timeline.

I polished it a little more and shared it on the fcp.co forums and over the week the little app had been downloaded over 700 times.

It even got a nice review from Larry Jordan and several retweets from other fcpx pros like Richard Taylor and sites like premiumbeat.com. 

fcpxImageExporter is available over at Orangutan.
