I wonder if there'll be a book to go with each course. Blackmagic Design have official training books which you can buy online. They also make PDF versions of those books available for free.

I hope there'll be ‘Motion Certified Motion Graphics Pro’ training and certification too. Because knowing Motion 5 would be very useful for those who want to do more than their NLE (be it Final Cut, Premiere, Resolve or Media Composer) can do but find that After Effects isn't right for them.

...Blackmagic Design have official training books which you can buy online...

Blackmagic recently released a set of videos devoted to Davinci Resolve training...

Anyone care to guess at what makes these training sessions a true delight?
Anyone... Anyone?

There's none of that obnoxious bump thump bump music embed silliness that so childishly scores most all web video these days sounding as if there's combat boots running in the dryer the next room over.

"If you can't improve on the silence of the desert... remain silent." (Bedouin saying.)

Can anything be more annoying than forced into hearing it for 14 minutes? Not in my world there isn't.

I happen to think Jenn Jager is doing some great tutorials, keeps folks attention, makes them fun. Why remove the fun from training? That gets boring. Between Ripple Training and Jenn Jager, what else does anyone need? At least someone is making the effort, I guess.

And I'm sure us previous ATCs are going to be ignored... oh wait, we were ignored and tossed out with the trash a long time ago. Just seems lots of good folks got cut off by Apple without so much as a "thank you for that decade plus of promoting us at your own expense."

Doesn't surprise me that FMC gets the monopoly on this. And yes, a Motion specific, plus a Compressor specific training would be nice to see.

Big question is, always has been, do these actually help anyone gain employment?

Watching Richard Taylor's broadcast at the moment. He thinks a major new version of FCP will be released with the new training. I sure hope so. That would be nice.

"Apple and FMC have announced" - not yet. Just FMC for now. I hope Apple are allowed to announce this. Beyond eventually linking to FMC from the Apple Final Cut site. That wouldn't be announcing it. If they do announce it, it would be a sign that the wider Apple has given the Storytelling group have a little more latitude in publicly promoting their applications, features and services.

Or it just stays at what's described in the "Certified Post-ProductionPro" section. Unfortunately, I suspect it will. At least for the foreseeable future.

😂… when has he ever NOT thought that?

…but the announcement includes this text:

Sure. A big fat "We'll see where this goes and decide on further details later…" 😜
Which is also why I wrote, "At least for the foreseeable future".

I am a certified trainer for both Final Cut Pro and Apple Motion, for obvious reasons I haven't taught a single class in years. Does this mean that Learnquest is not going to continue its fantastic work?

Learnquest was dropped by Apple some time ago, Xan. There are some of us here who are also trainers. I've been since 2006. Learnquest didn't to squat. And the program we were certified under, no longer exists, so we're not really certified trainers any longer.

The agreement between apple and learnquest was the worst thing that could have happened, at least everything related to the education of apple's proapps.

Wrong.

Wrong again. That's like saying if your school closes, then all your diplomas become invalid. As far as I'm concerned, I'm a Master Trainer to this day.

You're certified by Apple for the versions of the apps you got certified for. So yes, technically you are still a Master Trainer (as am I) for discontinued apps. But our Master Trainer credential is not valid for the current versions of the apps. It's like being a certified auto mechanic for the Model-T, and then claiming you are by default certified to service a 2021 Corvette. So I am not "wrong".

Xan, let me clarify, Apple dropped LearnQuest for pro apps, which is true.

I've not watched any of her videos before - I liked the content but yes, the music is annoying. WAY annoying.

... but yes, the music is annoying. WAY annoying.

I think we could all agree that an edit shouldn't be so annoying that the viewer leaves the theater, enables Closed Captions to get away from the audio, or clicks away to abandon watching it at all. To those ends it's important to stand back and objectively look at (or listen to) your work.

1 - Have you ever not watched something because it had no music bed? Not likely.

2 - Have you ever abandond watching something because of lousy audio or bad selection of a music bed? I certainly have.

To be fair I gave the video referenced a second chance but this time muted and CC enabled. Watched at 2x speed so I may have missed a few of them but she said “hey guys’ six times, needlessly inserted “allright” eight times, and pounded the viewer with “head on over/up to” some twentyone times. The saving grace was she didn’t pepper the piece with ‘you knows’ or the favorite filler word for the past 20 years, “like”. (It’s interesting people will bombard a conversation with those two but don’t bother typing them into an email or text, although I did catch one ‘um’ that hysterically made it into the CC transcript.) Voice over is so easy to correct or strip out superfluous chatter why not clean things up?



Subtitles / CC are often briefer than the conversation on the screen they follow. They aren’t meant to be as precise as a courtroom transcript but an opportunity to get the story across without creating excessively wordy content to read.

The overall point of this screed is have a valid reason for doing what you’re doing other than parroting what other YouTubers are doing. THEN be open for suggestions or critique from someone other than a parent or someone working for you.

Completely ludicrous comparison.
