Simon Walker shows us how to speed up editing in Final Cut Pro. A good 20 minutes of tips, techniques and humour as you can see from his tongue in cheek explanation of keyboard shortcuts! Well worth a watch.
Tutorial number 3 this week from Walter Biscardi. This time he shows us how to use the Title 3D generator in Final Cut Pro. I'm pretty sure a lot of editors don't even know this exists! Another good way of generating high quality text after the break too.
Walter Biscardi has been working with FCP for quite some time now and you might recognise the name from industry forums and articles he's published. He knows his stuff. So we were very pleased when we found out he had just posted a quick FCP tutorial on how to read the built in 'scopes more easily. Very cool if you do a lot of colour correction.
I think Wes gets these tutorials just about right. It's not because he gives us a name check at front, but the fact that the first thing he does is show you the finished result. Other tutorial makers please note!
We came across this whilst hunting down another Vimeo video and we were hooked. Enjoy the skill and resourcefulness of a Foley Artist. Watching a horse trot past in a film will never be the same again!
"How to achieve a cartoon look" is always a popular question on the FCP forums. Simon Walker has put together a quick run through of the presets in ToonIt, a cartoon transformation plugin for your footage.
An old but excellent tutorial. Media managing is hardly the most glamorous side of editing but it has to be done. Even though disk space is becoming cheaper by the day, you can't keep every take of every shot. This tutorial from Peter Salvia brought to you by his second glass of Amstel Light during some downtime during his laundry, will show you how to condense those finished FCP projects down. We had this video up for publishing before the free webinar was announced, a good primer for that one and a half hours maybe!
Looks like this will be handy, a free webinar about managing media inside and outside FCP. The webinar starts at 10:00 PST 10th March 2011 and runs for an hour and a half. Sorry about the short notice, but if they would have emailed us we could have posted this a while ago.
