This one day hands-on course will show you how to make the most of the new Final Cut Pro X with its computer-enhanced workflow, creative tools, and robust delivery solutions. Final Cut Pro X breaks free from the restrictions of old-fashioned timeline tracks and incorporates a dynamic editing interface which lets you experiment freely while working with extraordinary speed and precision. Final Cut Pro X includes the key sound editing and colour grading features from Final Cut Studio, so now you can use a single application for the entire post-production workflow.
This course covers the entire editing process from selecting and organising your clips to building a finished story.
