I'm delighted to report that hundreds of folks have signed up for our new web service: The Inside Tips. In just a week, we have readers from 48 states in the US, along with 28 additional countries! (Our Top 5 are: US, UK, Canada, Australia, and The Netherlands.)

Our most popular subject is Final Cut Pro X, but all our lists have hundreds of readers. At our current sign-up rate, Visual Effects and Codecs and Media will both go live in early November and Apple Motion by mid-November.

None of us have a lot of extra time, so this service focuses on short, lesser-known, tips, shortcuts, and workarounds. We are currently publishing 15 new tips a week - with lots more to come. And we are working on a very exciting new feature that should launch in about two weeks - I'll tell you more about that when it's ready.

If you haven't joined yet - and there's no cost - please visit TheInsideTips.com to learn more. Final Cut tips email on Monday and Wednesday, Premiere on Tuesday and Thursday and Random Media Weirdness goes out on Friday. I'm really excited about this new service - bite-sized nuggets to help us all work faster. Take a look and let me know what you think.

In other news, last week I wrote on article about the impact larger frame sizes - up to 8K - have on our storage. This week, I looked at how increasing frame rates affects storage. This is an issue regardless of whether we use Final Cut, Premiere, Avid, or any other editing software. I learned a lot while writing this.

Next, a reader sent me a report on a problem with Promise RAIDs and Catalina.

Finally, a couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article on how to use Clips and Tags in the Timeline Index. This week, I wrap up that discussion with a look at Roles in Final Cut Pro X. You'll find all three in the Articles section below.

Oh! I almost forgot. I need some ideas on subjects to write about. If you have an idea for an article, send me an email. I always enjoy hearing from you.

Please remember to sign up for The Inside Tips. And, until next week, edit well.
