Editor's Class

Get this class if you want to become a better editor.

This is everything I wish I knew when I started using Final Cut Pro X. Through 36 video lessons I share every step of my process for editing a video in FCPX.

This course covers importing, organizing, editing, color correction, audio sweetening, and exporting a video.

It starts with basics like workspaces and file management, then goes into how to edit a sequence, syncing video & audio, using multicam sequences, text effects, transitions, and more. You'll also learn how to edit audio, color correct & grade your footage, key for green screens, save hard drive space, and work with external programs like Compressor and Motion.
