The fastest way to get news these days is from Twitter. But who are the best people to follow when it comes to Final Cut Pro X?
We spend a lot of time on Twitter, not only posting, but reading through all the great information that gets linked to. So we thought we would put together this top ten list of tweeters who you should follow to keep up to date with FCPX.
Here we go, in no particular order…
@philiphogetts Philip needs no introduction, not only is he part of a company that produces some very handy utilities for FCPX, he’s also a regular presenter at user groups and trade shows. Worked on Final Cut before it was called Final Cut and has the T shirt to prove it! A great knowledge of Apple software down to the developer level too.
@DoublePrecision This is the twitter name of Filip Vandoorne who you might recognise from his recent article here on FCP.co about sharing libraries with NFS. As Fillip works for an Apple Solution Expert, his feed is full of tekkie stats and he posts some serious Mac Pro storage porn. Also seems to be one of the first to get his hands on any new kit!
@chrisfenwick Two reasons why you should follow Chris. He produces the very successful FCPX Grill podcast which is now up to its 50th episode. Secondly, he posts some great tutorials on FCPX that we have posted on here FCP.co before.
@Alex4D Alex Gollner is the master detective when it comes to FCPX and other software, he digs inside applications and finds hidden information. He’s written many good articles on what the future of FCPX might hold for us. He also has a vast library of free plugins that he’s written since FCPX’s release. (Links are in the FCP.co Forum)
@digitalreb Jon Chappell tweets under his company name Digital Rebellion. His company writes and publishes a variety of very useful tools to fix NLE problems and help with workflows. He is always across software updates and is one of the first to spot problems.
@markspen No, not the British clothing and food store, but one half of the MacBreak Studio team. There’s not much Mark doesn’t know about Motion, but he regularly tweets great information about all of the Apple Pro Apps.
@editblog We follow Scott Simmons as he has a good working knowledge of the popular NLEs and does some very fair comparisons. Not afraid to put the boot in where necessary with all the main software and hardware companies.
@tpayton Slightly puzzled why T hasn’t got more followers. He is one of the most active and knowledgeable contributors to our Forums. He regularly tries out new kit and plugins and helps solve a lot of FCPX user’s problems.
@verticalonline Logan Kelsey has produced some beautiful films shot on a RED camera and edited in FCPX. Checkout this profile on Marty Knapp. If you shoot and edit in high resolutions, then Logan is a good source of knowledge.
@LarryJordanFCP How could we leave out Larry Jordan from the list of people to follow? The Heisenberg of the Final Cut Pro world, Larry is a prolific tweeter, even though we think a bot might be behind most of them. Does break the odd big FCPX news story every now and then.
So there you go, happy following! There were more that we could have included, but some just churnalise other’s work and some just plug their commercial products.
We would also hope you are already following FCPdotCo!
