Why Apple is Dropping Cineform and DNx and How It Affects You
Users installing the newest refresh of Final Cut Pro might have seen a warning that their media won’t be supported in the future. Apple has put out a full support note giving more information and context to help filmmakers through the process.
Rumors seem to point towards the likelihood that Apple is developing Final Cut Pro to be able to run equally well on MacOS and iOS, allowing users to move seamlessly back and forth, which will require more limited codecs. But notice Apple doesn’t say that Final Cut won’t support Cineform and DNxHR, but that the entire MacOS won’t support Cineform and DNxHR. Considering how young DNxHR is (and how vital it is to the Media Composer workflow), this is very bold on Apple’s part.
Check out this article to learn what that means for you.

Nothing fancy here… when you add it to your projects timeline, It has a solid white background; in its Inspector, you can un-check the BG-box; but the light-weighted outline demands for a solid background.
The two top sliders set the amount of ‘nervousness’ and the amount of distance to the regular title.
The published crop parameters (t/b, l/r) allow to create a (opaque) bar or box as BG. As mentioned: nothing special, but an eye-catcher.

Snap Zoom is an easy way to quickly snap zoom (sometimes called crash or smash zoom) your way into and/or out of a shot. Zoom in up to 600% with motion blur. It’s particularly useful and effective on 4k or higher resolution footage in a 1080p timeline. Add dynamics to a montage by zooming in to just the area of focus, and then back out again. You control the speed of the zoom, and the scale and position you’re zooming to or from. Get it today FREE at bretfx.com/snap-zoom.

Zoom in or out or both at the start and/or end of the effect.
Control how fast the snap zoom is. From fast to insanely fast.
Scale & Position
Control the size and position that you’re zooming to or from.
Snap Zoom is super easy to apply and adjust as a title overlay layer, but is best applied directly to a clip as an effect to best preserve resolution and sharpness.
Final Cut Pro X 10.4 or newer required
