- So far the techniques we've been seeing in this course…could be generally applied in any editing application,…but in this movie you'll see an editing…technique specific to Final Cut Pro X.…With this technique, you can organize your…separate story segments such as,…coffee making, importing and so on,…into independent storylines that will give you lots of…flexibility as you edit and finesse your story.…In the Delicious Piece projects we've edited…narration clips as well as sound from interview clips…to provide an audio track to the story.…
