Wow! Very cool! I am using finally Cut Pro in about a year later. I use pinnacle studio right now for windows. I’m saving up for a MacBook 2016. I will be using Final Cut Pro once i get it.

Is there a way for logic pro and final cut to sync up? Like edit video in FC then refresh the playhead in logic to edit my audio to current video?

Michael Steven says:

Still to confusing for me at this point..Should I just learn iMovie first and then come back to FCPX?

Trent Loeks says:

hey i have a question, is it possible to use apple music in final cut? i have been having a problem with it not showing up. i can see the file and even listen to the song in final cut but when i drag it the song to the storyline there is no music just an empty file

Ryan Russell says:

Very helpful video thank you. For reference, I’m looking to lear some advanced-basics for editing travel footage from a GoPro shot in 2.7k flat color into home movies to keep for years. Color correction basics, slightly more interesting transition techniques, and how to get some of those extra plugins would be awesome to learn in a format as easy to learn as the way you presented in this video. Thanks!

Hunter X says:

But FCPX Is like sooooo expensive

The Tone King says:

Jonathan Martone says:

When working on a project that was filmed with multiple frame rates, would you recommend creating the project with the settings of the highest frame rate or vice versa. For example, I was on vacation and filmed a couple of clips in 1080 60fps (for smoother slow motion) and a few clips in 1080 @ 30fps. I’m not sure what settings to use for the project when the project will contain clips with both frame rates. Any help or input would be greatly appreciated.

kaya says:

Good Man Pictures says:

Hi. Good video for beginners. I have a question. I use premiere in windows. I am working on a project where the requirement is that apple prores 422 compressor be used so I am working on friend’s macbook. I wanted to ask that If I do all my video editing in premiere and then export with apple prores 422 setting in final cut pro then will it satisfy the requirement.

AT3M MEDIA says:
