ken stone matrox mxo setup guide

Here’s my blog plagiarism post of the week. From Little Frog in High Def:

Ken Stone wrote a VERY in depth article on the Matrox MXO over at KenStone.net. He goes into how to set the device up when you pull it out of the box, and into all of the various settings in the MXO System preference.

You may have read one of my other posts about my initial difficulties with my MXO. Well fear not dear reader, because Ken’s walkthru is ridiculously awesome and thorough. It even has pictures of the install screen!

Skipping ahead to the end, Ken notes three essential ingredients to make your MXO work correctly:

1 – The sequence settings must match the clip settings.

2 – In the FCP View menu > Video Playback must match the sequence settings.

3 – In the FCP View menu > Audio Playback > MXO Audio

Where have you been all my life Ken Stone Matrox MXO Setup Guide? This should be required reading for anyone even remotely considering purchasing an MXO. And it should be on a dvd in the box. Or at least on a piece of glossy paper.

Ken Stone, you are a godsend. Thank you!

Mark Spencer Shameless Plug

Mark Spencer was the trainer for my Motion 3 T3 in Santa Monica back in October 2007. He’s the first guy to cram 3D compositing into my brain. He was very gentle.

If you haven’t visited his website applemotion.net, stop what you are doing right now and click that link dammit. You’ll be amazed by all the free motion tutorials he’s posted. Really, you will be. Things like

Free 3D Cube and Die

Using Motion Templates in Final Cut

Free Tracking Video Tutorial

Creating a TV Screen Effect

3D Shatter Effect

Wormhole Tutorial

And if you’re an After Effects person or beginner or whatever and you want to get up to speed on Motion 3, check out

I’ve worked through this and it’s unbelievable that this dvd is only 99 bucks. I mean, don’t high end compositors make 100 bucks an hour at least? And this thing has like 10 hours of awesome training content. Instantly gratify yourself and buy the digital download. If for some reason you don’t want to take your humble narrator’s word for it, here’s a no-compromises review from Ken Stone.

If you’re already familiar with Motion 3 and want to dig in and learn all you can about the new 3D features, check out

I’m on lesson 4 and so far this training is the best thing that has ever happened to me in my entire life. Again, instant gratification download right here.

I don’t get a dime from these sales, but I do get a lot of feel-good karma knowing I’m pointing you towards an awesome trainer who will expand your mind without the use of hallucinogens or other questionable substances. And if for some reason those download links are lagging for you like they are for me, check out the homepage for Ripple Training Motion DVD’s.
