may tutorial roundup

It has been a quiet week for Final Cut Pro news, so that gives us the ideal chance to catch up on the latest free FCPX and Motion tutorials. One thing we have noticed from the last time we did a tutorial roundup is that there are a lot, lot more tutorials being produced.

As we have been a bit hardware-centric over the last week or so, this story takes us right back to the craft. Sven Pape is publishing regular videos on how he's cutting a film - on FCPX of course!

BVE 2016 FCPX

We couldn't make BVE at ExCel London this year, a shame as Soho Editors had a lecture area that put on presentations that mainly concentrated on Final Cut Pro X. So luckily for us they have just published recordings of the sessions.  Rory from Soho Editors, Thomas Grove Carter, a couple of Alexes and Pierre from Softron all take to the stage.

Back to a full week in the office and what could be better than four great Final Cut Pro X tutorials hot off YouTube. Thomas Grove Carter shows us his tips, tricks and shortcuts when he uses FCPX to edit an Audi commercial.

November free tutorials fcpx

Four great free tutorials for you. We start off with a handy trick to add motion blur to projects and timelapses, then we look at spotting sound effects using clip connections. We finish with this week's MacBreak Studio taking sound from Final Cut Pro X into Logic Pro X and the latest episode of FCPX in under five minutes.

Ever lose an FCPX library somewhere on your hard drive? This week's MacBreak Studio will show you a trick to get them all organised. Plus we take a look at the first part of a tutorial on building superhero titles.

Victor Gusev from Moscow very kindly emailed in this quick tip for FCPX. How do you select a clip that is not on the main storyline without using a mouse?

Did you know you can take Apple's new 'Live Photos' and convert them into usable smooth video using Final Cut Pro X?  Kenny Yin shows us how...

One of the things we enjoy about running the site is receiving news or tutorials about things in Final Cut Pro X that we would never think about. This is one example, a very clever trick for making progressive footage appear interlaced in an interlaced timeline.

MBS 7 10 2015

Two new tutorials from Ripple this week. We look at replacing an iPad screen with the TrackX plugin and creating alternate storylines in FCPX.

Time to catch up with the set of Ripple Training's tutorials. A lot to go through, from MacBreak Studios to FCPX in under 5 minutes. Plus the odd DaVinci Resolve tutorial for luck.

MBS 20 08 2015

A bit later in the week, but that is down to us experimenting with Final Cut Pro X and DaVinci Resolve (11) more than anything. Time to catch up with the latest tutorials from Ripple, there's also a new paid tutorial on what's new in Resolve 12.

FCPX imovie maps banner1

We have often looked at the animated globe maps in iMovie and wished they could have been included in FCPX. Thanks to a clever trick, you can have access to the maps and globes directly in Final Cut Pro X without having to re-render each one out as a movie.
