This hands-on course teaches students to perform basic and advanced editing functions while examining every part of the refined Final Cut Pro X user interface.
The two-day Final Cut Pro X course will cover:
The new interface, including the magnetic timeline; Importing and organising footage; Editing tools and techniques; Speed tips for faster editing; Multicam; Transitions; Audio; Titles; Generators; Retiming; Transforming; Effects and colour correction; Exporting and media management.
A unique benefit of the Final Cut Pro X system is that you can design your own transitions, effects, titles and generators in Motion — a bargain at approximately $50. Akin to Apple’s take on After Effects, this powerful program opens up new possibilities for the integration of complex motion graphics into your workflow.
An optional third day of training covers Motion, looking at:
The new interface; Layers and groups; Final Cut Pro X integration; 3D spaces; Text and text effects; Generators and particle emitters; Replicators; Behaviours, including parameter behaviours, linking and audio; Keyframes; Paint; Keying; Motion tracking.
