Before Updating Projects
Before updating projects from earlier versions of Final Cut Pro and Final Cut Express,
consider these things:
Â Third-party effects scripts, or scripts that you’ve already written or customized, may
need to be modified to take full advantage of the use of Y´C
color space in
Final Cut Pro.
Â All Final Cut Pro effects take advantage of the Y´C
color space. If you used any of
the effects listed below in projects created with Final Cut Pro 1.2.5 or earlier, the
effects may look slightly different when you recreate the project’s render files.
Â Video Transitions: Map/Luminance Map, Wipe/Gradient Wipe
Â Video Filters: Blur/Gaussian Blur, Channel/Invert, Image Control/Brightness and
Contrast, Gamma Correction, Levels, Proc Amp, Sepia, Tint, Key/Blue and Green
Screen, Color Key, Difference Matte
Â Video Generators: Matte/Color
Â Third-party After Effects filters and QuickTime transitions and filters do not take
advantage of the Y´C
color space. They always render in RGB space.
