Steve Fisher says:

Very knowledgable but a shame it isnt really followable due to him speaking so fast!! Add to that poor diction, I found myself frustrated in having to pause and rewind so much to understand what was being said. I know he is reading it, but please,slow down

Kwan Michael says:

Just a simple question. I can’t find the mark out cursor from the timeline when I have finished editing. I have tried to move timeline to the extreme right or clear all markers but failed. The mark out cursor must be hidden somewhere. How can I resume the mark out cursor?

Bawer Bozarslan says:

DAAAAAMN That background music is coooooool I literally forgot about the video I’m supposed to edit and watching the video, I just got myself deeply listening to it!!!

Anne Linde says:

I’m going to college next year and I’ve heard several of the current students say that they think it is better to have a Macbook because the Adobe programs you will need to use for the courses work better on Apple than on Windows. Do you have any idea if this is really true, and how big the difference is? I can only imagine those students prefering a Macbook because that’s what they’re used to, so if they suddenly have to use a Windows that can be confusing, but maybe there really is a big difference? Like everyone knows, Macbooks are very expensive so I was hoping I could just continue to use a Windows without it being a problem.

UglyMcGregor says:

Hey guys,
Just a little update to the video. So this is coming up to being three years old. Of course, some of the information is a little dated now as some newer versions might have better features or have removed things I speak about. Plus, this was one of my first tutorials I ever published. Sound recording is a little shoddy, and I speak a little fast. There will be an updated version soon, but this will still do the job!
