- Hello, this is Ashley Kennedy, the Video Post-Production Staff Author for lynda.com. I'm just chiming in here in this one movie to let you know a few things about this course. Now, this course was recorded prior to Apple's release of version 10.1, which was a bit of a game changer, in terms of interface, tools, and media management. Therefore, in September 2014, we updated this course and a handful of other smaller Final Cut Pro X courses to reflect the changes brought about by the version 10.1 update.
Although the new course was not re-recorded from scratch, we updated the exercise files to work with the most current version of the software, we recorded new intro movies, and we added text overlays in each of the movies of the course to guide you through the existing changes. So, what you need to know is that you should only watch this course if you're working in a version of Final Cut Pro X prior to 10.1. To check your version, go to the Final Cut menu in the upper left corner and choose About Final Cut Pro and if it turns out that you're in the most recent version of the software, then just search for the updated version of this course in the lynda.com online training library, which is named the same thing as this one, except it's appended with "10.1.x".
