Have you always wanted to learn the basics of Final Cut Pro (FCP) 2021 but didn't have much time on your hands?
Speaking of which, have you ever taken courses before but failed to complete them because you lost your motivation? Perhaps you didn't have much time, or the course had lengthy sessions?
Most people are too busy to be attending courses that are several hours long to get a basic understanding of a specific topic. Even if they sign up for such courses, many end up getting distracted, bored, frustrated, or even losing interest altogether.
This super-light course is comprised of bite-sized chunks that will teach you the core basics of FCP. The rendered video at the end is a real-life project I've done for a real estate company, so you can get a feel for how video editing works as I'll try to recreate what I've made. You'll have a sample rendered video at the beginning to give you a glimpse of what we'll be working on.
The best part?
You'll get the cream of the crop by consuming brief, snappy, yet meaningful video editing content. Maintain the ebb and flow of your learning energy with this 40-minute course without getting overloaded with unnecessary, complicated, or irrelevant information!
You'll also get a useful, carefully selected FCP keyboard shortcuts PDF and a progress checklist that can help you during your learning journey.
Now I am not making any empty promises here. Let's be clear about one thing:
This course will give you the absolute basics of FCP, not advanced topics. You'll get bite-sized sessions so that you can grasp the gist of FCP without losing your motivation or interest. I won't delve into details- just the essential elements of FCP.
I'll quickly get you up to speed by helping you understand, digest, and apply the bare-bones version of FCP in the fastest way possible. Relevant Tips and Pro Tips (taken from Apple's professional FCP User Guide) are purposefully included throughout the videos, so you can pause the videos to digest them during your 40-minute learning journey.
Learn the basics of creating, editing, and exporting videos in FCP, focusing on transitions, cutting and rearranging clips, titles, audio, video effects, stabilization, noise removal, and exporting.
