There are a ton of great tip videos, tutorials and blog posts for FCP X out there. It’s a pretty exciting time for sharing all of the great time-savers and tricks we’ve learned over the past few years. We have Creative Cow, FCP.co, MacBreak Studio, the multitude of Facebook FCP X groups, #FCPX on Twitter, Youtube, Vimeo, and, of course, all those editor blogs (including yours truly). To put it plainly, FCP X videos and articles are everywhere and I don’t see this trend slowing down any time soon.
In the interest of culling together an updated list of the best resources, I’m posting some of my favorites. I’ll update this list whenever something pops up that catches my eye.
Check back regularly to this post for updates.
- FCP.co is the first site I visit in the morning. They post some of the best detailed workflows for high-end work.
- Sam Mestman got the ball rolling with FCP X. He made a bunch of great tutorial videos in 2013 which showed us that FCP could exist in the professional space. FCP has had a few updates since he posted these videos, but they are still relevant and continue to be a great resource.
- Chris Fenwick is always fun to listen to. In addition to his podcast, FCPX Grill, his tip vids are chock-full of great information.
- Chris shows us how to do a “real time edit.” Just watch and you’ll see what I mean.
- Using Compound Clips to replace an unlicensed music track. This is a workaround for relinking.
- Richard Taylor’s FCPX.tv is a great place to find tips and tricks.
- I wouldn’t be a good self-promoter if I didn’t add some of my own videos to the list. Here are two recent tutorials that I’m proud of:
Apologies if I forgot anyone. Like I said, this is an evolving list. Please let me know if there are any not-to-be missed posts out there.
