Getting Started with Final Cut Pro X (with Lee Herbet)
This course is designed for people who have never used Final Cut Pro X before and to get you up and running quickly.
Final Cut Pro X is a full featured video editing application that allows you to work quickly and easily in crafting your visual story.
In this course we don’t just go into what the buttons do, but why you would need to, or want to use a particular function.
The course comes with sample footage, from a real production, so that you can work along with each lesson. We've divided each lesson into concise videos so you can simply watch 30-45 minutes a day, or watch more if you're in the flow. We’ve divided things up this way to provide different options for people based on their own individual schedules, or learning styles.
