Guess what? No more waiting! FCP X lets you start processing and editing your clips even as they're being ingested! But that's only one of its amazing new features ...

In this tutorial, Michael Wohl explains how each clip is analyzed for its content, shot type and image stability. What's cool is that all your audio is checked and corrected for noise and hum too. This means no more exporting to other audio programs and searching for esoteric plugins to fix pesky sound issues. It's all done for you in Final Cut Pro X, and Michael shows you how to take control and optimize all of these amazing features.

But that's just the beginning ... FCP X's real power lies in its advanced media recognition and organization features. MIchael explains everything in extraordinary detail including the cool new "ingestion" features for digital and tape-based cameras, DSLR, and iMovie.

From there, he moves on to cover everything you need to know about Range-Based Image Stabilization, keywords, the Filmstrip and List views, clip auditioning, clip metadata, custom file naming, using folders, grouping clips, and much, much more!

Join the enjoyable and knowledgable Michael Wohl as he takes you through all the "media" features of Final Cut Pro X .

    Very complete course! I'm totally happy with it. All the final cut tutorials from macprovideos have proved to be really worth the money.

    Good dive into the importing of data into FCPX with lots of tips on how to organize media. Updated with additional features and changes in 10.0.6.

    Excellent course...especially for first-time users of FCPX. Now, we need an updated version to cover the 10.0.7 version!!

    Michael does a great job of going through everything in great detail, but he doesn't assume I'm an idiot and need to be walked through everything like single- versus double-clicking. He keeps up the pace and I feel like I'm learning a lot with every tutorial.

    I was learning Final Cut Pro X from a book and was thoroughly confused before I learned about this site. You explain things in such a clear and concise manner. I highly recommend these videos.

    Comprehensive and very helpful. FCP X has been re-written is such a way that allows the editor to organise media in a sophisticated and powerful way. This tutorial will open the door for a variety of ways on how to do just that.
