Joe Torelli, the man who literally wrote the book on how to edit news and sports on Final Cut Pro, has put together a 1 hour video to complement the book. Being that I’m a visual guy, who doesn’t like to read (that should be obvious by my writing), this is a much faster way to learn the basics.
Torelli, who edited for NBC network news and was a pioneer of Avid editing, helps you grasp Final Cut Pro from the ground up. This is perfect for the editor that presently cuts on Avid or another non-linear, and has never seen Final Cut Pro.
But don’t worry, the expert FCP editor will also pick up a few speed tips as well.
As Torelli puts it in the video, this is not an all-purpose video on FCP, but rather a quick tutorial on how to edit for news - and edit FAST.
You have to register on the Apple site before you can view the clip, but it’s free. (Tell them b-roll.net sent you!)
