Final Cut Pro is a versatile non-linear digital editing app for those wishing to edit their own projects. Its interface and ease of use allows filmmakers get up and running, in very little time, to produce polished and well-told stories. Its power lets you edit 4k footage with ease unlike other editing platforms. Its flexibility allows you to manipulate your footage how you want and it’s not dictated by legacy interfaces found in other apps. While streamlined on the surface, the app has many powerful tools that reveal themselves as needed, such as a state of the art multicam tool, and ability to work with multichannel audio in a clean and efficient way.
It’s been said that editing is a skilled art; every decision to put one clip after another is a story decision as well as determined by the style of the editor. In this class, students will learn the software from the ground up, while getting experience editing a montage and narrative project. They will learn how to import footage and make a plan to organize it; the will learn basic editing techniques for picture and sound, polishing the project with transitions text and color, and exporting to one of the many formats available. Prior experience in non-linear editing is not required, but basic computer skills are necessary.
