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:
Are you brand new to Final Cut Pro X and don’t know where to start? Are you looking to purchase it for you or your team but want more information before you make the plunge?
In this tutorial you will learn the basic overview of the program including how media is organized using events and libraries. We talk about basic in and out selection as well as create append edits, insert edits and connected clip edit.
We briefly talk about the new magnetic timeline and basic audio adjustments in our projects.
This tutorial is an introductory video demonstrating some of the basic workflows of Final Cut Pro X.
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.
Keywords and smart collections are some of the most powerful tools in FCPX. Using them properly will make sure the clip you want is easily found.
Now that you have clips lets learn how to quickly find your best clips or clips that you may not have used in your project
Makers and to do notes are a great way to leave yourself or other editors instructions if you are coming back to your stories often.
In this lesson you will learn the very basics of animating using the ken burns effect in FCPX
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.
Apple Motion Professional Training Lesson 5 part 2
Animating titles in Apple Motion.
This is a 2 part lesson.
In Part 1 we deconstruct the design of one I recently created for a show on broadcast, and design it from the ground up.
Learn the basics of lower third design that can be used for titles or Q+A type graphics on your productions.
In part 2 We use behaviors, Keyframes and Masks, to create an animated lower third with a reveal.
You can use this with dropzones to make a variety of different graphics using your own Logo.
