Time to sift through the recent FCPX tutorials to bring you the ones of interest. A job that's getting harder by the day as there seems to be more and more tutorials being uploaded  for Final Cut Pro every day. We list the good ones!

Shortcuts, we love keyboard shortcuts! So does the author of the first video who uses FCPX to edit blogs. Worth a watch as there's always a shortcut that has been forgotten and 41 shortcuts in under 10 minutes is a great hit rate!

Final Cut Pro X has to have the best multicam editing features of any NLE out there. But, did you know there are advanced multicam techniques that you can use that do a bit more than just switching between angles? 

There are many different ways to do the same thing in FCPX, especially colour grading. Although we wouldn't drag colour correction effects on to clips (just use the ones already in the Inspector) and also apply camera LUTs there too... This 20 minute video from Christian at Drone Mission goes into colour correcting F-Log shots from a Fujifilm XT-3 and D-Cinelike shots from the DJI P4P. 


Another tutorial from Idustrial Revolution, and this time, they go through the process of making a tilt-shift plugin in Motion for Final Cut Pro X. Save yourself some money by following the instructions and building your own!

Although this next scribble tutorial requires the PaintX plugin from our friends at Coremelt, it is worth a watch to see what can be quickly painted (and tracked) on video. 

We have featured tutorials from Michael P. Schmidt here before, so we know he knows his stuff. Does he edit music in the Primary Storyline or a Secondary Storyline? You will have to watch to find out!

PLVOG shows us how to fake camera moves in FCPX. 

We were a bit undecided whether to include this zoom sequence tutorial from Orion Yorke. He certainly has a 'tutorial style' and although it might be amusing for some, we would prefer that he just gets on with it! Maybe we are just turning in to Victor Meldrew.

Finally, for this roundup, something slightly different. Well, not different, but a different language and it's great to see Tase Snape making an adjustment layer using FCPX localised in Chinese.  If you take a look at his channel, he's also got a 24 part tutorial set for FCPX in Chinese (Mandarin?)
