    Does anyone know the name of the FCPX Audi Demo that was released at the start?
    I got to finally play with it at the Apple Store and would love to get a hold of it.
    Great footage to show off FCPX.

    Audi's Sportscar Experience

    I think the name of it is "Audi's Sportscar Experience."

    Nearly all the footage was shot on the Alexa and transcoded to prores proxy files (which is why they look so good and are very fast to work with on the demo computer.)

    I also noticed that much of that footage was never color corrected to be within broadcast standards.

    I'm not sure if there is a way to get a copy of that demo project/media, but it would be fun material for playing around with. Let me know if you find a way.

    Suggestion

    Avid includes a free startup project download with their free trial.
    Maybe you could contact apple and suggest they include this demo (or something like it) as a free download with fcpx/fcpx trial. I know when I played with fcpx a while ago it didn't include any demo project to start playing with. Something like this would be good for everyone interested in trying fcpx.

    That would be nice. Im using RED clips for my classes. Had to convert them to ProRes422. I use them as instruction material.

    Formats

    That's great!

    Both Red and Alexa footage would be useful.

    Ideally, you would have a good amount of several formats to work with.
    Uncompressed
    DNxHD (obviously not on fcpx)
    Prores
    HDCAM
    XDCAM HD
    P2
    Etc

    This would make for an exciting class!

    Its a basic class so I keep it to the simple ProRes variant. The new editing paradigm is enough to keep them busy. Its a 9 week 4 hours each class. Very basic.
