7toX for Final Cut Pro 1.0.10

Version 1.0.10 has just been released – thanks to the folks at the Mac App Store for granting an expedited review process! The main feature is that it fixes the offline media bug from version 1.0.9, but here’s the full list (including the fixes from 1.0.9):

• Bug fix for incorrectly seeing media files as offline
• Bug fix for multiple keyword collections created for keywords containing a comma (bin names containing a comma are replaced with a semicolon)
• Bug fixes for XML exported from Premiere Pro
• Bug fix for multiclips containing Motion projects
• Bug fixes for certain multiclip structures
• Bug fix for XML exported from REDCINE-X PRO
• Bug fix for media file paths with “illegal” characters

7toX for Final Cut Pro 1.0.9

While we released this yesterday, I’m getting a bunch of reports that online media is reporting as offline in FCP X. Please do not upgrade until we can examine the cause and (likely) put out a bug fix as 10.0.10.

The latest release of 7toX for Final Cut Pro includes:

• Bug fixes for XML exported from Premiere Pro
• Bug fix for media file paths with “illegal” characters
• Bug fix for multiclips containing Motion projects
• Bug fixes for certain multiclip structures
• Bug fix for XML exported from REDCINE-X PRO

 

Why my posts have slowed

I recognize that the frequency of posting has slowed, but when you’re in production with a constantly floating starting point it takes time.

The group formerly known as the “audience” are no longer passive consumers of whatever  the metaphoric “Hollywood” wants to hand out.

Forget about ‘content management’ and focus on Audience Development

Forget about ‘content management’–and focus on ‘audience development’ http://t.co/CsvtX391

Without an audience there is no monetization.  The article points to five actions:

1. Manage across the many channels of distribution.

2. Adjust the focus from audience to individual.

3. Use abundant user data to know what works.   

4. Make your systems look forward, not back.

5. Fully socialize your distribution.
