How shots are assembled, performances are revealed, and images are ordered are a few of the ingredients that turn a good film into a great film. This course shows filmmakers and film editors how to make critical creative and technical decisions and dynamically present their vision with Final Cut Pro. Author Abba Shapiro illustrates important techniques for putting shots together to create a short film, covering the entire post-production process—from organizing footage, crafting scenes, and editing dialog, to building montages and adding music. Each step of the process is rich with object lessons that are applicable to situations editors face in the real world.
Hi, I am Abba Shapiro, and welcome to Narrative Scene Editing with Final Cut Pro X. In this course we'll look at the art of cutting together a narrative scene. I'll start by showing you how to customize the interface of Final Cut Pro, I'll show you some of the best practices in cutting between shots, and we'll edit a dialogue scene for flow and continuity. We'll also look at using Final Cut Pro X's Multicam feature to edit a scene shot with multiple cameras, and we'll explore how color and transitions can affect the impact of a film.
We'll be covering all of these features, plus plenty of other aesthetic and technical editing strategies with Final Cut Pro. Now, let's get started with Narrative Scene Editing with Final Cut Pro X.
