My name is Bruce Macbryde a professional filmmaker and tutor for Final Cut Pro X. I have been using and teaching Final Cut Pro since its release in 1999. I was previously a trainer for Apple Authorised resellers during the 2000's and established as an independent Final Cut and iMovie trainer in 2006.
I am also a fully accredited Wedding Video producer, using that experience to hone my editing skills
I continue to produce tutorials about Final Cut Pro for youtube as well as teaching students worldwide via Skype with remote access via screen sharing to assist students directly.
Have you ever deleted the computer’s trash and suddenly remembered you had files in there that you still need?
Maybe the question should be- who hasn’t done it?
If you’ve used SD cards in your video camera you will have deleted clips and realized that you had not backed them up. Too many times for me.
This software application that has just one purpose – to recover lost or corrupted files – Think Photos and videos and also pretty much any type of file. When I say one purpose, it’s actually a little wider than that.
It’ll: Recover Trash from your Desktop or any Hard disk drive, Recover from SD card, Recover from Notes app on Mac, Recover Gmail and Yahoo, Recover from crashed hard disks, including corrupted disks.
This tutorial shows a genuine way of using Lightroom slider controls directly in Final Cut Pro as an intuitive way for Photographers to get started in Final Cut Pro.
This is not a conversion of Lightroom Presets by copying them into LUTs, these Lightroom style controls work directly as Plug-ins inside Final Cut Pro.

If you are used to working in Lightroom – no need to re-learn your entire workflow.
The slider controls do have the advantage of not only being familiar to Photographers coming to Final Cut Pro, but also they do give an intuitive way of correcting color that may not be that obvious to new users of the Final Cut Pro wheels.
This Topaz tutorial will look at the differences between the Proteus v1 and the updated Proteus v2 in Topaz Video Enhance AI.
I also show the new “AI Model Manager” which will smooth the frequent model updates expected to increase in number, as many as every 1 to 2 months. So when you buy Topaz Video Enhance you will continually be getting better enhancement models at no extra charge.
A review of the newly released 2.3 version of Topaz Video Enhance AI by upscaling 720p footage to 4K
Perhaps the most impressive new feature with the 2.3 update is the the smooth slow motion or depending on your needs, the smooth conversion of frame rates
But in my mind the most useful for me is the Proteus AI model that allows control with 6 individual sliders to fine-tune de-blocking, detail recovery, sharpening, noise reduction, de-haloing, and anti-aliasing.
When you select the recommended models, then you can make alterations to those independently. You should start by setting to “Auto”, then by selecting the Preview button you can review the comparisons and then modify the parameters to suit.
