Rick Young from MacVideo has put together all of his tips and tricks into one book called "Rick's Tips, Inside the Mind of an Editor." It is available in print or electronically for your iPad/iPhone/iPod.

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!

So you've dabbled a bit with match moving in Motion and fancy yourself as a VFX artist, but where do you get the green screen originals to practise on? Checkout this amazing free resource.

I'm pretty sure he will be using FCP7 for this webinar and not the 'jaw dropping' new version that we are all very keen to see. Nevertheless it will still be packed with information and good tips.

Tony Davies puts into words what a lot of us editors and producers have been thinking for a while. Final Cut Pro is a great tool, but its ease of use has caused a lot of problems within the industry too.

If you haven't got your hands on one yet, then take a look at this iPad demo video from Apple. Could some of the features shown here in iMovie find their way into the new Final Cut Pro?

How many different screen layouts do you use? One? Two? Walter Biscardi has a selection to choose from depending on what he is doing.

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!
