Quick Overview

Creating effects is the coolest part of working with Final Cut Pro -- providing you know how.



Manufacturer Part Number: LJ-10

Otherwise, it's an exercise in frustration. In this one-hour Final Cut Pro tutorial, Larry Jordan shows you how to create some very cool effects using the tools that Final Cut ships with.

Filled with step-by-step, real-world examples, this session covers motion effects, text effects, generators, and shows what the filters in FCP can REALLY do! This also explains hard-to-understand concepts of keyframes, composite modes, and nests. Learn how to use Final Cut Pro to bring your imagination to life!

NOTE: This presentation supports features found in Final Cut Pro version 5 or later. All effects are created using features found inside Final Cut Pro, no third-party software is used. This tutorial does not show how to create effects inside the application Motion.

Audience Level
This session is helpful for the self-taught or infrequent user, as well as an experienced user who wants to understand how to create effects in general, and not just provide a 'cookbook' of steps.
