Learn the basics of FCPX for free.

Im a video professional, and as part of my work I spend a lot of time training people and companies in different tools.  In 2015 I’ve been fortunate o train people at MGM grand Resorts International, Kohls, Wells Fargo, TMJ-4 Milwaukee, Jockey International and a few others.

I’m in the process of developing some great classes for professionals but in the meantime, I wanted to release a bunch of tutorials to get people up and running with FCPX.

Are you in the Milwaukee Area? Join our new meetup.

I’ve just started a new meetup group in the greater Milwaukee area focusing on all things film/production. While there are a few other meetups in town that work with various facets of production (MCA-I, Mograph etc.) I wanted to create something a little broader in scope.

I’m hoping to find other people passionate about shooting, editing, writing, modeling, etc. that can meet together, share strategies, encourage and empower each other, and most importantly have fun.

Each meetup (I’m hoping) would involve a meet and greet, a demo of some hardware or software, a speaker, and an informal challenge that you can take part in if you wish.

In addition to this, I’m encouraging members to bring in some of their past or current projects to gain feedback if they so choose.
The meetup is free to join, as well as most if not all the events.

In addition to the meetup group I’ve started a blog, Twitter, and Facebook where members can share and discuss ideas and opportunities.

My ultimate goal with this is to meet great people, share what we know and create a network of people that are interested in making the best content personally, or professionally.Meetup url:

Multipoint/perspective tracking for logo replacement/removal

In after effects we have several different option in tracking items within footage.  Many situations can call for removing or replacing a logo due to copyright or production change issues.  Before we explored using Mocha AE to track footage but in this tutorial we will look at using the multipoint/perspective tracker to stay completely within After effects without bouncing into Mocha or other third party software.
