Hi! This is Lonzell Watson, professional television director and producer. I will be the instructor for your Lynda.com Essential Training for Apple's Final Cut Express 4. The purpose of this course is to give you an extensive overview of the post-production process as it pertains the Final Cut Express 4, so that you can immediately go out and create your own video works of art. This training has been laid out to follow this same workflow that I use personally as a professional video editor. You will also practice how to put your story together by storyboarding and creating rough cuts of your movie, then we will refine that rough cut into a polished, professional presentation and add sleek animated titles with Apple LiveType.
After we complete our tour of the Final Cut Express interface, I will show you how to create some attention grabbing video by creating effects using chroma-keying, advanced compositing, animating still photos, customizing special effects and creating custom transitions. Last but definitely not least, what's the good in having an amazing piece of video if no one sees it? So we will wrap up by showing you how to serve your video for the web, for DVD distribution, and for playback on the iPod. You will learn all this and more in Final Cut Express Essential Training from lynda.com.
