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 When you think about it, aren’t tracks really legacy leftovers that are no longer applicable in a digital world?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!
