Nov. 7, 2016

I am delighted to announce that my latest training - Final Cut Pro X: Workflow and Editing (v10.3) - was released at 10:05 PM Sunday night.

Totally revised and updated with all new movies - 137 of 'em - covers all the new and existing features of the software, with an emphasis on workflow, media management and editing. However, I added a chapter covering the most popular visual effects, until I have time to update and record my FCP X: Effects title.

NOTE: If you have already ordered your copy, go to my store, click the My Account button in the top right corner of our website, log in, then click the Orders text on the left. At this point, you'll be able to see and download the five ZIP files. Formal email announcements will go out mid-morning today. Expect our server to be slow, these files are big!

Creating this training was an intense labor of love and I want to thank the three editors who helped me get this project done so quickly: Trevor Horton, Michael Escobedo and Aaron Zuber. Without their help, this would have taken another two weeks to get done.

One of the things I wanted to do this time around was to rearrange my training to consolidate sections and tighten things up. I keep discovering better ways to teach some of these subjects, so I took the opportunity to incorporate that into this training.

Our pre-release special price of $49 ends this morning at 10 AM. So, if you are thinking about buying this title, act now!

Because I was so totally focused on getting my video training completed, I haven't had any time to write articles. I'll have new material next week.

Oh! That reminds me. I delayed editing last week's webinar until I could get my training completed. Now that my training is done, I'll have last week's webinar posted to the store and Video Training Library in the next couple of days. I'm taking a break from webinars this week, we'll resume a week from Wednesday.

In the meantime, edit well.

P.S. I'm starting to plan the next update to my Final Cut Pro X: Effects training. Let me know if there's a subject you'd like me to cover. Thanks!

New Features in Final Cut Pro X
This session was a barn-burner with  almost 500 people tuning in to watch.

While the session was great, I delayed getting it posted while I finished my in-depth FCP X 10.3 video training.

Now that my in-depth movies are done and released, I'll get this webinar added to our store in the next couple of days.

Visit our store mid-week to get your copy of "New Features in Final Cut Pro X."  This title is designed for existing FCP X 10.2 editors who want a focused look on what's new.
