Final Cut Pro X has redefined the post-production process for journalists and video professionals, and is now the software of choice for BBC News. Until now all non-linear editing systems were based on film editing. FCP X works with new paradigms from tapeless workflows.
This two-day workshop will guide you through this revolutionary new way of editing by taking you through an edit from start to finish.
-Importing/transcoding files, creating events, keywords, grouping clips reviewing media and marking
-Sequencing clips: Magnetic timeline, adding clips to the timeline, clip timing, auditioning, story lines and compound clips
-Adjusting video: Speed, scaling, cropping, distorting, keyframing and text
-Music and audio: Editing/enhancement and recording voiceover
-Effects: Template effects, adjusting effects, colour correction, auto balancing/matching colour and manual correction
-Sharing: Quicktime/Apple devices/Vimeo/Youtube and Compressor
Please bring your own laptop and software for this workshop. Although this is optional we strongly recommend it in order to make the most of the day.
The Frontline Club will provide media with which to practice editing.
To follow the entire day’s workshop on your own Mac, please ensure you have the following software installed:
-Final Cut Pro X version 10.3
-Mac OS X Mavericks (or later) installed first which can be downloaded
