Join Abba Shapiro for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Final Cut Pro X v10.0.9: Narrative Scene Editing.
Well, we've come a long way since the beginning of this course, and you should have a better…sense of how to cut a narrative story.…A reminder of some of my best techniques: always cut on motion.

Always cut a moment before they expect it and things will go well,…and watch TV without the sound or without the picture, and you'll be amazed at how much you can learn.…Now one of the best resources for Final Cut Pro X is the Help menu.…It is always being updated.…
