Learn to master Final Cut Pro X and become a video editor equipped with the tools to do everything from simple edits to the final render of your projects

Throughout the five courses, learn the ins and outs of Apple's software and how to easily edit videos like a professional.

Start by familiarizing yourself with the Final Cut Pro X interface and its workspaces, then see how to build your own work library with imported material.

From there, get to the core of Final Cut Pro X: the revolutionary magnetic timeline, where the movie is built. Learn to organize and join your clips in a sequence using each and every one of the program's editing tools. Giacomo provides you with all the video material you need to complete the exercises.

Next, see how to edit multicam videos, i.e., videos made up of different shots. In this case, combine three frames to give your sequence a more dynamic feel.

Move on to working with masks and discover how to create effects in your videos. The first effect is to duplicate your main character so that they appear in two places at the same time within the same shot.

Now explore the titling possibilities offered by Final Cut Pro X, both in 2D and 3D, along with its presets, customizations, and properties.

Take a look at the sound design of a project, using predetermined sound libraries, and come to understand the role that each sound plays within a scene.

Next, Giacomo teaches you about speed changes and how to give your projects interesting dramatic effects, both in video and audio.

In the penultimate course, focus on the post-production phase. Learn about effects and color corrections for video and the different tools that Final Cut Pro X offers to get the right look in each scene.

Discover what a chroma key is and learn how to create this effect using colored backgrounds. Finish off with some final tips on shooting good chromas.

Call it a wrap by getting to the bottom of common issues and dilemmas that every video professional faces in their day-to-day, including doubts about relinks, proxies, resolution settings, and how to work efficiently in multiscreen. Giacomo also discusses the appropriate export options for your projects.
