☑ Final Cut Pro X
☑ Content Creation
Don’t have Final Cut? Apple is offering a 90 day free trial of the software now!!
This course is designed to do more than introduce you to FCP X. It was created to give you an in depth look at all the power Final Cut has to offer. You will go beyond the drag and drop method of editing and really get into the different tools you can use to fine-tune your edit. You will learn slipping, sliding, trimming, ‘L’ and ‘J’ cuts, and much more. This is a Master Class in the editing tools found in Final Cut and how to use them to enhance your storytelling.
This course comes with a full set of practice footage!
I’ve included over 80 clips that were shot for a short film called “Dales’ Date.” Throughout this course you’ll create a rough cut of Dale’s story based on a short script, then you’ll revisit that rough-cut as you learn to apply filters, effects, transitions and even color grades. You will learn about audio and video filters and effects, editing (and shooting) green screen footage, using markers, color correction, multi-cam editing & more!
Storytelling with video can be very satisfying and rewarding...IF you can get past the frustration of learning new software. This course aims to help you, not only feel comfortable with FCP X, but to command it. Make it work for you!
Learning keyboard shortcuts, and the tools that make the editing process faster and easier will help you spend more time with the creative side of content creation and storytelling.
