This course serves as a companion quick-start option to the in-depth Final Cut Pro X 10.2.x Essential Training—so once you've taken this minicourse, you can choose to continue on with nearly eight additional hours of training.
Skill Level Beginner
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Ashley Kennedy. Welcome to Getting Started with Final Cut Pro 10. This training is for all users of Final Cut Pro 10, version 10.2 and later. In this Getting Started course, we'll look at how to begin your session by creating events and projects and we'll look at importing and organizing our media. I'll show you basic editing techniques as we work to create a short promo piece on the craft of letterpress printing. We'll explore how to add music, as well as how to edit and mix our audio. We'll look at just a couple of effects to put some polish on our project, and I'll teach you how to easily export your project for the web.
This will be a lot of information, presented quite quickly so this course is great for editors who just need a basic refresher. For people brand new to editing, the pace of this training can be a little daunting, so do your best to digest as much as you can, and then go for a more in-depth training to take you through everything more slowly. And, speaking of such a training, the bulk of the tutorials that comprise this course actually come from a parent course, Final Cut Pro X Essential Training, released in April, 2015.
As you see here, in chapter 2 of that Essential Training course, I've created a Quickstart chapter to get you comfortable with the editing process, before I really deep-dive into each topic in detail. So, essentially, for this Getting Started course I've taken most of that chapter 2, I've reworked it a bit and repackaged it to really get you up and running fast. But, if you do need more in-depth training, just move on to that Essential Training course and you can dive into nearly eight additional hours of instruction. Let's get started.
