We held this back for a slow news day, which just happens to be today! Rick Young takes a look at organising and editing your footage within FCPX.
These two tutorials were filmed back in October at the MacVideo Expo in London.
"Rick Young runs through essential processes for organising your media with Final Cut Pro X. Using features such as Batch Renaming, adding searchable logging notes, and Keywording. See just how simple it is to label and organise all of your media. Final Cut Pro X offers the means to harness the power of a sophisticated, searchable database to facilitate the editing process."
Worth a watch just for the batch renaming.
In the second video also recorded at MacVideo Expo, Rick gets his teeth stuck into editing.
"Rick Young runs through the core knowledge needed to edit using Final Cut Pro X. Key functions are shown, including accessing footage from the Events Library, marking Favorites, editing footage into the Timeline, manipulating footage in the Timeline, adding titles, adjusting opacity. Final Cut Pro X represents a new way of working though the fundamental needs for many editors remained unchanged."
As always, many thanks to Rick over on MacVideo for making the videos available to us here on FCP.co
