Section 1: Six Steps
Importing Footage
Final Cut Pro X has built-in organizational functions to help locate, sort and tag your footage. This is a critical step of the editing process.
In this module we will build the rough cut.  This is the very first version of our edit.   We will make our selections and then place them in the primary storyline. 
Adjustments & Trimming
In this module we cover effects, transitions and color correction. This is important as we come to the end of our edit.
Once you finish your edits, it's now time to export.   In this module I teach you how to use the export functions with Final Cut Pro X and send your video to YouTube and other video sharing services.
In this tutorial I share how projects and events are managed at the finder level.  I also share how to delete render files and free up hard drive space on your computer.
