Michael was there right at the start of Final Cut development at Macromedia before Apple bought the program, so he's got a pretty good background in NLE design and how things work. Some excellent advice from him in these three videos from the recent LAFCPUG meeting.
We predicted that as soon as Final Cut Pro X was released there would be a huge amount of free online tutorials available. Izzy Hyman has not only posted this free 26 part tutorial, but he's also made media available for download too.
Some people say Larry is an FCP God. At the recent London SuperMeet last week he had a full 'house' of followers ready and eager to hear his wisdom. Watch the four part video after the break.
No sooner had we posted the voiceover recording video, PixelWizard posted this video in the comments. A Final Cut Pro tutorial on matching colours and using vignettes.
How does a free one hour tutorial on FCPX to get you started sound? This offer comes from Michael Wohl who has announced his range of Final Cut Pro training videos. He also has some intersting comments about our new NLE.
These are exactly the type of tutorial videos we thought would be flooding the internet once FCPX was released. Short and to the point, this video shows how to record a VO in Final Cut Pro X.
I think we have all realised today that maybe keeping your copy of FCP7 close by is handy. If you haven't partitioned a disk or have multiple boot drives installed, Apple have an official procedure to get both versions working.
There are going to be many people using FCP7 for a long time after FCPX gets released, so it's nice to see new 'Classic FCP' tutorials being posted. These two tutorials from Nick Horrox detail how to achieve that much desired film look.
We think publishing FCP7 tutorials is a bit like straightening the deckchairs on the Titanic, useful for a while. Good solid knowledge about keyboard customisation, layouts and buttons though.
There are built in tools for tracking within Final Cut Studio, but there are times when you need something a bit more powerful. Just watch this fast demo of Mocha AE working with FCP to put images onto an iPhone screen.
Every Final Cut Pro editor has come across this problem, background noise behind an interview. Hiss, hum, machinery, it can all make hearing those important words difficult. This can be exacerbated if you want to run music underneath or if you are cutting in and out of the interview and can 'hear' the edits. This tutorial shows how round-tripping via Soundtrack Pro can remove that unwanted background noise.
Some of the best Final Cut Pro tips are very simple and this is one of them. Especially handy for color correcting weddings or any project where skin tone color accuracy is vital.
