FCP X’s timeline is not only “Magnetic” but also redefines the whole concept of what a timeline is and how it works! Join Michael Wohl, one of the original designers of Final Cut as he shows how this amazing new video editing canvas will make your editing easier, faster and more fun!
*** Updated for FCP X 10.0.6 ***
No more tracks! When you think about it, aren’t tracks really legacy leftovers that are no longer applicable in a digital world? Apple certainly thinks so, and that’s why learning the fundamentals of Final Cut Pro X’s new Magnetic Timeline is so compelling! Without the limitations of tracks and locked-in-line clips, the whole editing experience becomes more visual, more adaptable—more like working on an artist’s canvas.
In this incredible Final Cut Pro X video editing tutorial by expert Michael Wohl, you will learn why FCP X’s new timeline will change the way you think about video editing. He first shows you how to create and organize projects. Then he discusses all the different types of edits including Append, Insert, Overwrite, Connect, Replace and Three-point editing and how these are accomplished in Final Cut Pro X’s re-engineered timeline.
From there Michael discusses moving and connecting clips, and the various modes of the Position tool. He then moves on to teach all about markers, to-do items, zooming and navigation techniques. You’ll see why all of these techniques take on a new perspective and have different behaviors in FCP X’s trackless environment.
No one knows Final Cut Pro X as intimately as macProVideo.com’s Star trainer, Michael Wohl. So sit down with Michael and learn the hows and whys of editing in the brave new world of FCP X’s revolutionary Magnetic Timeline!

Michael Wohl presents a great, detailed tutorial full of handy tips and clear, concise operating instructions for the use of this program for editing. Because his videos and the quality are excellent I got the whole set, I've been able to speed up the process of editing and learning with the program. Really pleased I spent the money purchasing.
Excellent with an exception: 103, sec 3, #17: Selecting Audio Tracks. Compound Clips in FCP X aren’t explained until 104 sec 4 # 23 or 44 chapters later.
Good introduction to the new FCP X timeline. Some new features for navigation as well as editing are explained very well. If you have an issue with your FCP X timeline, I would recommend seeing this tutorial as it may help you solve it quickly.
I am learning a lot. you are explaining it in such a great order its fantastic! thank you!
Muito bom! Very goooooodddddd!
excellent , thanks
Damn ! I was lost like a little kid with FCP X. I knew Final Cut by heart and now I had to relearn everything again. At first I wanted to throw my mac through the window , then someone told me about macprovideo. Michael Wohl just saved my day. It does not mean I am not angry against Apple anymore, but this tutorial was some kind of pain killer for me ;)
I confess, I was excited like a little kid when I found out Apple were releasing a new version of Final Cut Pro. Especially as I only had FC Express! Yes, I've read the complaints about what's missing and feel the odd pang for DVD Studio Pro and Soundtrack Pro but hey, we have still got a lot here that improves the stakes when progressing to the "Pro" version from Express! Once again Michael Wohl presents a great, detailed tutorial full of handy tips and clear, concise operating instructions for the use of this program for editing. Because of both his videos I've gotten, I've been able to speed up the process of editing and found what was comfortable to me when editing! Seems that even though FCPX is small to download, it's big in utilities and while it has it's shortcomings, there are still plenty of goodies to keep the learner hungry to experiment! Wohl offers easily followed instructions with good humor and it appears, patience! Can't wait for more!!
