Final Cut Pro X: Making the Transition is a new book from Final Cut Pro training guru Larry Jordan. For all the jabs and snubs the latest version of FCP has received, there is some merit to the software. It’s certainly not for everyone in its current state; however, it has a lot of power and conveniences that aren’t quite visible on the surface.
In this useful, cut-to-the-chase guide to the program, popular trainer and Final Cut guru Larry Jordan takes these experienced users through all the components of the software, from importing footage and organizing media to export and sharing. Along the way, they’ll learn the best ways to edit footage and add transitions, effects, and filters, do basic color correcting, work with audio, and utilize a variety of HD workflow techniques, to name a few.
Final Cut Pro X: Making the Transition retails for $44.99; however, it is currently available for $29.69 on Amazon.com.
