Final Cut Pro: The Beginner’s Series, Day 1

by

While After Effects is all we need to create brilliant motion graphics and VFX, Final Cut Pro is where many of us take our raw work and splice and dice it into a final, polished video. Today Gustavo delivers a starter tutorial for those who are not familiar with Final Cut Pro and would like to learn how to edit and compose their After Effects footage.

In the first Day of this multi-day beginners' series he gives us a brief overview of the program's layout along with some simple functions you will use regularly in your video editing work.

Requirement:

Final Cut Pro (Purchase from Apple here)
