Another tutorial from Wes James, this time he animates on the elements of a poster.

Well according to FCP Towers, my article on the subject above had some good hits/tweets so I thought it might be interesting to write an update after digesting the FCP Sneek Peek.

Some kinetic typography gives clear advice on how your scratch disk works in Final Cut Pro. Short but to the point and rather cool too. Video after the break.

Another tutorial from Wes James. This time he replicates the scrolling animation you have on your iPhone. Everybody has an iPhone now right?

Always nice to see a new player on the FCP Tutorial Scene, and Soho Editors show us the simplicity and beauty of the autoselect tool. We bet most editors don't use these buttons.

In this tutorial Larry Jordan shows us how to delete unwanted render files using the Render Manager. Last time we did this at FCP.co towers we had loads of files from old projects and managed to free quite a lot of space up.

The guys who bought you PluralEyes have done the same for video as they have done for audio. We know the above video is about Vegas, but you will get the same functionality in FCP. A bad day to announce a product in the wake of the Supermeet news, so give the video a couple of minutes of your time. 

It seems to be the current fashion with FCP tutorials these days to get as many tips in as possible, this video from Wes James is no exception. Learn how to do popular music video effects such as light leaks or even the Charlie's Angels wipe.

Walter Biscardi shows us how to use the broadcast safe filter in Color to get your Final Cut Pro timeline legal.

Last night Simon Walker said to us at the UKFCUG meeting in Birmingham that he had a new tutorial coming out today. Actually it is about 7 tips rolled into one! Standby to edit faster and thanks again Simon.

Could this be the shortest Final Cut Pro tutorial ever? It doesn't really matter how short this is, it's a damn good tip.

In this tutorial Walter Biscardi shows us how to avoid losing your favourites when you have to trash your preferences.

Everyday new FCP tutorials are being added to YouTube, some of them good, some not so good. But, is there such thing as a bad tutorial? (Yeup we've seen Rob's) We think the whole training scenario is changing and us die hard broadcast editors are in the minority. Cue debate.
