Final Cat Pro Services is a suite of plugins created to 'hack' Final Cut Pro X in a smart way and help editors to speed up their workflow and to feel more in control. Here is a short overview of every plugin in the suite:
Quote and Note: tag interviews with the right quotes and notes. So if you need to write out your interviews or provide more information to clips than a few words, this plugin is your solution. It saves you a lot of valuable time and makes you feel in control with big projects.
Memory Bank: store 5 positions and visit them later when you need them. Very nice if you search through your sequence and lose your orientation. Or you can compare multiple clips. Or jump back and forth to the clips you want.
Affiliated Clips: copy, paste, adjust white balance, mute audio off/to all the same source clips in the timeline with a shortcut.
Select from in to out: select everything between, before or after your sequence in and out point in the time line.
Split Edits: create a split edit with the click of a button. This b-split will extend the audio of the left clip under the video of the second clip.
Quick Quotes: set your in and out point automatically while everything keeps on running while you type. In this way you can transcribe much faster and you get a clean outline of all your quotes and notes. It is the quick-and-dirty version of our Quote and Note plugin.
Eventbrowser to Text: print out the outline of the event browser.
Audio On/Off: mute the audio of any clip with the click of a button, even while running your sequence. Very nice if you want to check your audio, mute your score or check your different channels.
Clip Appearance: 'zoom vertically' to check your audio waveforms, for example. Right now, you can do this as well, but you need a lot of mouse clicks and it is very time-consuming.
Reveal Selection: reveal your selection of a clip in the timeline to the source clip in the event browser with the exact in and out point.
