I built the crane before I started doing the channel 4 thing, and since it seems to work ok, we just used it instead of renting one. The reason it wobbled to begin with was because it had big buckets as counterweights, and the water sloshed about. There are some pictures but they are pretty old. i h...

RE: Final Cut Audio Question

You need to notch the audio of the piano. The freqs. in the piano can cross over onto the human vocal range. You need to export the audio track to Sound Track Pro, add the notch filter and drag down the human vocal range.

RE: Re: RE: Making Clips Look Like Television in Final Cut P

You dont want to apply it as a differnt layer. Anyway, most filters you cant apply as a differnt layer. Check there are no free tracks in the time line, double click on the clip to load it into the viewer. Choose your filter and either drag it onto the clip or onto the viewer. It will then show up i...
