At 17:40 I listen to the song and tap spacebar markers out to the beat over the audio clip. Creates a tempo grid to follow for faster editing. Usually half notes works the best. Quarter notes get too cluttered

GASSI TV says:

when your working for tv stadion or film festivals you have to control your color correction with wavemonitor and vektorscope. you don’t control your correction you will make mistakes. you will find both control kits in fcpx.
