Final Cut Pro X video tutorials

For those of you that edit video on a Mac … Final Cut Pro X is VERY different from the old Final Cut Pro and Final Cut Express. Interestingly enough, the new Final Cut operates a bit more like the simple iMovie, but has some very powerful features, too. Apple is attempting the best of both worlds – simplicity and powerful features. Have they pulled it off? Beats me – do a search for articles about the software, and you will find a mixture of love/hate articles on it!

But if you just want to know how to use the new Final Cut, Israel Hyman at has helped us out. Izzy has created a set of 26 tutorial videos for Final Cut Pro X. I just finished watching them – they’re good. I’m now ready to go edit some video!

If you create videos, and want to know more about the new Final Cut (or if you’re like me and are still trying to figure it out), I’d recommend watching these video tutorials – good stuff.

    I myself was surprised to see how much hatred pro video editors are heaping upon Apple over Final Cut Pro X…The founder/CEO of the blogging platform Posterous previously worked on Final Cut Pro at Apple, and he wrote a blog post explaining why Apple went the direction that it did with FCPX, and his blog post generated a lot of comments from pros who feel abandoned by Apple…It’s an interesting read if you want to follow the debate:
