Master the craft of editing with Final Cut Pro 5. This fast, effective approach cuts to the heart of the art and technique of editing with eight tutorials that cover the essentials: capturing your material, organizing it, editing, adding transitions, basic titling and sound techniques, and outputting from the application.

Edit with confidence by learning the editing methods taught in film schools through concise lessons from Tom Wolsky, master editor and experienced teacher. Both novices and editors who have used previous versions of Final Cut Pro will learn the new features such as native HDV capture and editing, interface enhancements, an improved Log and Capture window, and the new Reconnect Media interface, understanding how they affect workflow and editing for both single- and multi-camera projects. The author reveals bugs and gotchas, providing workarounds and expert, practical advice about:

  • Setting up your system to ensure smooth operation
  • Getting your material into FCP and getting it organized
  • Editing to build and trim a sequence of shots
  • Multicamera editing using Multiclips
  • Working with audio, split edits, back-timing, and level control

Work through the tutorials using your own footage or use the digital media and graphic files on the companion DVD, including:

  • Feature film footage from Heartwood, starring Hilary Swank
  • Documentary footage shot on location in Japan
  • A multicamera shoot of a live jazz performance
