Learn Final Cut Pro in 30 Minutes or Less

In the following video tutorial by Jeffrey Bradbury you’ll get up to speed on video editing in FCPX.

Final Cut Pro X

As filmmakers we’re all stretched for time. It can be difficult to stay up-to-date on the latest editing software.

There are several professional software options for editing, with Final Cut Pro X being the newest. It’s now being adopted by many professional post-production operations – so if you haven’t learned it yet now’s the time (especially if you’re a freelance editor). If you don’t know a specific software you very well could lose out on a job.

We’ve found a quick solution for anyone wanting to learn Final Cut Pro X but doesn’t feel like they have a lot of time to sit down and learn it. In the following video presented by Jeffrey Bradbury, he takes a look at Final Cut Pro X and demonstrates how to use the editing software in as little as 30 minutes. The video covers:

  • Libraries and events
  • Ingesting footage
  • Simple keyboard shortcuts
  • Working with generators and lower thirds
  • In-points and out-points
  • Compressing and encoding footage

This video does a great job as in intro video into Final Cut Pro X but there is a lot more to be learned. For more information on FCPX visit our Final Cut Pro section on the blog. Thank you for sharing Jeffrey!
