I spoke with Tim Standing at SoftRAID about the problem. They've published an excellent blog describing the problem - which Apple knows about - with two workarounds. A permanent fix requires an update to macOS - and, so far, it is not in the 10.15.5 beta. My hope is that Apple will address this before releasing the update. Please read SoftRAID's blog - this bug was biting a number of DITs trying to transfer large media files on set, as well as myself.

eight new articles and videos for you this week! I'll get to those in a minute - our

Tips and Tricks for Apple Final Cut Pro X. Next week, is
New Features and Techniques for Adobe Premiere Pro. Registration for both events is FREE! Join me this Wednesday at 8:00 AM and 12:00 PM (PDT) for a host of tips to speed your editing and make using Final Cut a whole lot more fun.
AND, for the first time ever, I've published an "Ask Larry Anything" webinar to my store, as well as my Video Training Library. 44 questions and answers on life, configuring gear, Final Cut and Premiere.
Also, if you haven't subscribed to one or more of our free newsletters at TheInsideTips.com, now's a perfect time. Each issue has three tips on subjects that range from Final Cut to Premiere to Random Media Weirdness. So far, we've published over 600 tips - with new ones arriving in your In-box each week.
Last week, I illustrated how to work with
closed captions in both
Final Cut. This week, I have a complete workflow illustrating how to edit, import, trim, export and post captions to YouTube for both FCP X and Premiere. I used these steps myself in adding captions to the tutorials I posted to YouTube this week.
has started a movement to rename "off-line editing" to "story-line editing." If you think about it, off-line editing refers to days long gone where we did rough cuts on 3/4" U-matics and final edits on 2" quad videotape machines. Today, we can do it all from our desktop. I think this is a compelling idea - and I invite your comments.
asked me for a detailed tutorial for educators on how to use Premiere to create videos that include video and PowerPoint slides. I presented one for Final Cut a few weeks ago, now, Premiere has equal time.
Thinking of Premiere, Adobe added a new preference to
improve display color
management to resolve the issue of video appearing dark in Premiere.
asked me whether the release this week of the Radeon Pro W5700X GPU for the Mac Pro would change my recommendation. I looked into it and it did - PLUS it saves almost $2,000 when you buy the system
All this, plus
two video tutorials
showing how to add captions in both Final Cut and Premiere, along with an illustration of how to use Morph cut in Premiere with green-screen footage.
