Product Description

From the Back Cover

Completely revised for Final Cut Pro 7 and featuring new footage from TNT's hit show Leverage and the international music creation event Playing For Change: Peace Through Music, this best-selling, Apple-certified guide provides a strong foundation in all aspects of video editing. Renowned author Diana Weynand starts with basic video editing techniques and takes you all the way through Final Cut Pro's powerful advanced features.

Each chapter presents a complete lesson in an aspect of video editing and finishing, using professional broadcast footage. After marking and editing clips to create a rough cut, you'll learn how to trim and refine the cut before moving on to complex tasks such as adding titles, creating transitions and motion effects, applying filters, and working with multi-format and multi-camera footage. The book covers Final Cut Pro's exciting new features, including iChat Theater support, the redesigned speed tools, and sharing projects on a Blu-ray disc.

  •  Accessible writing style puts an expert instructor at your side

By Robert D. TOP 100 REVIEWER on June 5 2016
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Rating: 4/5

What I Like:
-Includes a lot of useful information and illustrations on how to use the program
-Technical side of editing, importing files, etc
-Good companion to final cut courses

What I Don't Like:
-Could include more information about how to pace/set/etc.
-No longer relevant for newer versions of Final Cut (ie: final cut X)

Conclusion: I took a class in school regarding Final Cut and this was the required text. It had a lot of useful information, but for the most part was stuff I could have figured out by watching Youtube videos, googling things, etc. To be honest it's not really relevant any more too (why they were teaching us Final Cut 7 when they're on X now... I wish we'd learned Adobe Premier Pro). Anyways, good book with lots of technical information, but I wish it had more useful things that would help with any video editor, like what moments are best to cut video together, how to pace video, etc.

I needed to know the very basics of FCP, and this book provided the basics and more! It included a file disc with a bunch of copyright free clips which were used to put short clips together. I learned a lot from this book. Thank-You!

This book was a good purchase. I had to buy it for an editing class. The only downside is that my school is going to be switching over to final cut X next semester. But this book has everything you need to know really.

This book is ideal to learn the ins and outs of Final Cut Pro. The CD that comes with it has a lesson plan that enables you to cut actual video. 10 out of 10!

I naively thought that it would come with the DVD to follow the lessons, but it did not, so it became completely unusefull for me...
