PROCUTX From Pixel Film Studios

This is pretty exciting news for FCPX editors like myself. Pixel Film Studios have just released PROCUTX, an iPad App that controls Final Cut Pro X. It looks fantastic. I currently use a Shuttle Pro which is great, but i think this will make a really useful addition to the edit suite.

PROCUTX for Final Cut Pro X is an iOS iPad application that allows editors to control Final Cut Pro X on their MAC through an iPad.

Built from the ground up to meet the needs of today’s creative editors, PROCUTX breaks free from the menus and tabs to streamline editor tasks. This application gives users control over all the FCPX editing tools in one clean interface, eliminating the need for clicking and searching through the Final Cut Pro X menus. From import to export, PROCUTX can control every step of the FCPX editing process.

Features Include:

• Precision Timeline Scrubbing
• Quick Retiming
• Auto-Correct Color
• Color Grading
• Compound Clip Editing
• Import, Export, and Rendering shortcuts
• Quick Keywording
• Fast access to Tools
• System Volume Control
• Timeline Zooming
• Audio Enhancements
• Record Voiceovers

Get it here...only $24.99 at the moment...rising to $40 soon...

EDIT>>  There's loads of chatter online about this app at the moment. Lots of people are saying that without some kind of 'real' buttons to feel, this product isn't worth using. In my opinion, that's such a crazy argument... I have my iPad mounted in front of my monitor and i can see it fine without looking away from my monitor...a momentary glance to hit the right button is way quicker than multiple mouse clicks any day of the week. I have a hardware controller and i will keep that... but let's give this new and exciting product a chance. And as for the people complaining about the price? Seriously? You can't invest $25 in your edit system? Madness...
