Final Cut Pro X Training lesson 10- Compound Clips
Compound Clips are a useful tool for a variety of workflows in Final Cut Pro X. Whether you are iterating new titles over and over, or need to quickly change the layout of a clip, it offers versatility in your timeline without taking up a lot of extra space.
Additionally its a great way to bundle scenes together to try out different orders of clips, or Nest / precomp sections together so they can be manipulated as a group.
Rigs designed in Motion are predominately used for templates, titles and generators in Final Cut Pro. The purpose of rig to to attach several parameters to controllers allowing quick changes that can make your templates more versatile.
In this lesson we are going to take what we know about Cameras and dropzones and behaviors and make a 3D intro that you can use for whatever you would like.
Final Cut Pro X is the choice for many editors the world over. In fact I personally believe its currently the fastest way to edit stories efficiently.
This is an introductory course in the basic functions of Apple Final Cut Pro X.
I’ve been a Broadcast professional since 2006, and been a technical trainer/college instructor since 2012. In that time I’ve been fortunate to across the country in different facilities, and worked with a lot of different people with different skill sets.
One thing that I’ve learned in that time is that everyone needs to start somewhere, and it can be hard to find the right information quickly and easily. While other training services require a monthly subscription to get started, or free online tutorials give disjointed information, I wanted to put together a class that gives everyone the basics, for free.
Really? What’s the catch?
Well I’ll be honest with you. The reason why I have this class out there is a few different reasons.
I believe everyone should know the basics. This class is aimed squarely at beginners.
A rising tide lifts all boats. When everyone knows the basics it gives people room to advance faster
It’s training I wish I had when I was learning video editing.
Its a preview of my teaching style. While earning the basics might be all you need, I’m confident that if you need to learn something quickly and efficiently, I can offer customized advanced training to you or your team.
The course and what you will learn:
This course is geared towards those who have never used Final Cut Pro X, those new to video editing, or moving to Final Cut Pro X from another editing suite.
This course is a preview of my professional training in Apple Final Cut Pro X and can be considered the bare minimum. It does NOT go into fine details of Final Cut Pro X and its feature set, but acts as a means to get people up and running as fast as possible.
Here’s the set of Introductory lessons In a playlist:

So you know the basics of the interface, how exactly do you set up your project and add clips to your storyline? In this lesson we start editing.

In this lesson we work with applying effects and basic animation principles to blur out a persons face.
By using proxy media in FCPX you can edit hi res (4k 6k 8k) video on older machines or on the go- without compromising your efficiency.
If you’re like me chances are you are always taking photos of videos of different things/events/ people for script/story ideas. maybe you like the way a certain street is laid out or the light is hitting through a stained glass window. Whatever the situation, chances are you are not always carrying a whole film rig with you, but instead carrying a cellphone.
I know what your thinking- “Is he seriously saying that we can get decent results putting together edited pieces from a cellphone?”
To answer your question, here’s a piece that I shot with an iPhone 6+ and was put together and edited by Kenneth Kornacki of Kenko here in Milwaukee, WI
