So what's the deal with Final Cut Pro X now that it's been out for almost 2 years? Can you actually use it for “professional” editing? Is it really just “iMovie Pro”? Why do some people seem to love it and others seem to hate it?
Why not find out for yourself?
If you'll be one of the approximately 100,000 people attending the annual NAB show in Las Vegas this year, and if you are interested in learning about Final Cut Pro X and/or Motion, you'll definitely want to check out the Post|Production World Conference, which runs from Saturday April 6 through Wednesday April 10th. The conference covers all kinds of topics of interest to anyone in post-production, but of particular note: there will be over FIFTY HOURS of presentations on Final Cut Pro X and Motion by 7 different instructors!
I'll be teaching 5 sessions on different aspects of Motion, including an introductory Boot Camp, animating cameras, working with particles replicators & paint, rigging effects for Final Cut Pro X, and working in 3D.
I've been teaching sessions on Motion for PPW at NAB for years, but this year for the first time I'm very excited that Steve Martin from Ripple Training and I will be co-presenting two sessions on Final Cut Pro X: delivering a project in 4 days, and multicamera editing in FCP X. In addition, Steve will be teaching several other Final Cut Pro X sessions, and other excellent instructors will be presenting sessions on Final Cut Pro X and Motion. Pick your favorite FCP X and Motion topics from the list below and come join us!
