FCP Cafe now has a new logo/icon designed by the amazing Matthew Skiles. We hope you like it as much as we do!

He has also designed a new logo/icon for Resolve Cafe, which is equally amazing.

We've just added an amazingly detailed case study for Blood & Gold. Check it out here!

BRAW Toolbox v1.1.4 (51) is now available on the Mac App Store.

Thanks to the help and support of the awesome Final Cut Pro team, we finally have a workaround to the Synchronised Clips bug.

Previously, Synchronised Clips could cause random glitches during playback, and produce unexpected results in some, but not all, cases.

As a result, in BRAW Toolbox v1.1.1 we made Create Multicam Clips the default option as a workaround to this issue.

We now know this was actually due to the fact that we're applying the BRAW Toolbox effect to a Custom Solids Generator.

Whilst Final Cut Pro worked correctly when scrubbing and skimming a clip, during playback, because the Custom generator normally doesn't change its output (i.e. it's always a static colour), Final Cut Pro was using a cached frame, rather than rendering a new frame, which caused the glitches.

Essentially, it's very unusual for an Effect to change the output of a Generator, so we were getting unpredictable results.

We now workaround this issue by simply applying keyframes to the Custom Solid, so that Final Cut Pro always renders the frames - simple, but effective.

To fix Synchronized Clips created in earlier versions of BRAW Toolbox, we've added a Repair Synchronized Clips (prior to v1.1.3) Toolbox, which will add keyframes to all your Generators within the BRAW Toolbox Clip.

HUGE thank you to Tangier Clarke for supplying a reproducible library to help us solve this annoying bug.

We'll leave Create Multicam Clips on by default, however you will no longer get a warning message when you toggle this preference.

Dylan Bates (The Final Cut Bro) has demonstrated the new BorisFX's Continuum Beat Reactor plugin.
