A Look Back: The Iconic Cinematography of Douglas Slocombe | A Look Back: The Iconic Cinematography of Douglas Slocombe by  Alex Billington May 20, 2008 Source:   FXRant One of the many brilliant aspects of the original three  Indiana Jones  films is their cinematography.

Slocombe was actually nominated for an Oscar in 1982 for  Raiders of the Lost Ark , but ended up losing to  Reds . Inspired by two great posts over at  FXRant , I thought we'd take a look back at the iconic work of Slocombe in the original three  Indiana Jones  films. In retrospect, it definitely was the cinematography that truly turned Jones and his fedora into the iconic hero that he is today!

FCP X 10.2.3 is out, here’s how to get the most from it. - FCPWORKS

•Customizable Default Video/Audio Effect Now with audio and video as separate customizable effects. The default audio and video effects are EQ and color corrector out of the box. So if you happen to have a different favorite audio or video filter you’d like to choose as your default and apply via a keyboard shortcut you’ll be all set. Keyboard shortcuts are  ⌥⌘E  for Add Default Audio Effect, and  ⌥E  for Add Default Video Effect.  •Faster Performance for Libraries on a SAN This is a mighty feat of engineering that has been desired since Final Cut X was first released way back in 2011.
