About The Picune Blog


Hello, my name is Jared Picune, and this is my blog. I work as a video editor and have been an avid Apple user since I was in fifth grade, which lead me into the film/video industry. I am a complete tech geek and love to rant. And just so you know I have bad GAS (grammar and spelling). Okay that was lame but it is true!

My most well known project is probably Baby Einstein. In the last few years I have completed several videos in the series for Disney. I am proud to say, all of which were cut and finished with FCP.

So I want this site to be my little geekey corner of the world. I hope that you can use this site as a source for some great tech news, the latest Apple info, some great FCP tips and tricks, and other fun stuff.

  1. Hello, I have a question for you about exporting video from quicktime. I make a lot of presentations using only audio and text screens, but the font looks sort of pixelated during my presentations, how do I export a completely loss less video from fcp?

  2. SD video resolutions are low (usually much lower than presentation software uses), and are designed to be displayed on an TV. In a nutshell I would recommend using HD resolutions to improve your text for use in presentations. Uncompressed will not necessarily make any difference in you results, however take a look over at FCP Tip #16 (https://jpicune.wordpress.com/2006/09/04/final-cut-pro-tip-016/) to find out how to export uncompressed or unchanged.

  3. When is the FCP user group Denver for month of September??
    Is it Tue 26th?

  4. I am not sure when the next DFCPUG meeting is? Normally it would be today the 26th, but I have heard nothing about it.

  5. Hello Jared,

  6. Is there a way to capture video that has already been recorded by a DVR using the AVCVideoCap utility?

  7. In general whatever is playing on the DVR is what is coming out of the firewire port. So if you have already recored a show, you just have to play it and capture it then. I wish it were possible to just transfer the files, that would be much easier and save some time.

  8. 🙂
