This fast-paced, self-contained course focuses on getting users comfortable with each aspect of the editing process—from preparation and organization, to editing and refining a cut, to audio and effects, to exporting the final project. Staff author Ashley Kennedy provides an overview of each technique in a standard post-production workflow, using real-world examples in creating a short promo video.

This course serves as a companion quick-start option to the in-depth Final Cut Pro X 10.2.x Essential Training—so once you've taken this minicourse, you can choose to continue on with nearly eight additional hours of training.
