Our Apple Final Cut Pro 7 Training Course is a collection of tutorials that address some of the fundamentals of setting up and using Apple Final Cut Pro 7. Presenter Kevin McAuliffe, who teaches Final Cut Studio at the Toronto Film College, will show you how you can get started using this powerful editing tool.
The tutorials begin with setting up the install & troubleshooting common FCP7 problems. Then you'll launch the application, get a brief overview of the interface, discover how to use Easy Setup, and review user preferences, system settings and the menus.
Once you are up and running, you'll move on to the basics of editing and working with effects. You'll learn how to setup a new sequence, import clips, and work with a timeline, editing in the clips and linking them, reviewing the editing tools and keyboard shortcuts. You'll also learn about adding motion effects, how to apply filters, the difference between realtime and non-realtime effects, how to add generators and work with text, and review Safe RT extreme.
By the time you are done with these tutorials you will have fundamental understanding of how to get up and running, basic editing techniques, and how to add effects to your projects.
