Hi! I'm Abba Shapiro, and I'd like to welcome you to migrating from Final Cut Pro 7 to Final Cut Pro X. At first blush, editing in Final Cut Pro X may seem radically different, a completely new interface and a completely new way of editing. In this course I'll show you what you need to know to smoothly transition from editing in Final Cut Pro 7 to editing in the new Final Cut Pro X. I'll start by walking through the new interface, looking at where to find the tools and controls to edit quickly and efficiently.
We'll look at how Final Cut Pro X can automatically add metadata to your media, so you can quickly find exactly what you need when you need it. I'll show you how the new Color Corrector can not only automatically balance a shot but can quickly color match shots in the Timeline. Finally I'll identify the new tools used to perform tried-and-true editing operations like three-point edits, ripple and roll edits and even creating sub-clips. This course is intended for editors already familiar with Final Cut Pro and even editors migrating from other editing applications.
