Shows filmmakers and film editors how to present their vision dynamically with Final Cut Pro X 10.1.x.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm 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 dialog 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.
Note: This course was updated to reflect the changes to Final Cut Pro X v. 10.1.x. Although the course was not re-recorded from scratch, we updated each of the movies by adding text overlays to guide you to existing changes. We also updated the exercise files to work with the most current version of the software. Please watch the "Understanding this update and using the exercise files" movie to learn exactly what to expect from this updated course. Working with an earlier version of Final Cut Pro X?
