Ripple Training release their new version of Mastering Multicam Editing in FCPX

Ripple multicam FCPX training

Ripple Training has just released their new version of Mastering Multicam Editing in FCPX. The tutorial is now on its third edition. Brand new lessons for 10.1, new downloadable examples and all the info on the latest techniques for $39.99.

Ask any editor to pick out one feature in Final Cut Pro X that it really excels at and it's likely to be Multicam. No doubt about it, FCPX has one of the most feature rich and easiest to use multicam editing abilities of any NLE out there.

But there's a lot more to know than just lassoing up a bunch of clips, synchronising and cutting away.

So it's good to see Ripple Training releasing Multicam Editing in FCP X, the third edition. Priced at $39.99 for the iTunes version, this tutorial runs through all the features of multicam editing in FCPX by using three example projects. There's also a $49.99 USB stick version from the Ripple Website.

'Mastering Multicam Editing in Final Cut Pro X is an immersive tutorial designed to teach you the fundamental skills of creating and editing multicam projects in Final Cut Pro X.  During the course of the tutorial you will learn how to properly prepare your media for import; if and when you should transcode your media; and how to organize your footage prior to editing. You'll also learn how to sync your footage; add and adjust angles in the Angle Editor, and employ useful shortcuts during the edit. Lastly, you'll learn how to adjust the timing of your edits, work with audio and add titles to your multicam projects.'

It's not for the complete beginner though, it assumes you have the basic knowledge of the interface and you're happy working with Libraries.

Mark and Steve have published a few sample videos so that you can see the level of knowledge you'll be getting. After you've purchased the course, you can follow along with the tutorials by downloading the media used in all of the three examples.

I am the Editor-in-Chief of FCP.co and have run the website since its inception ten years ago.

I have also worked as a broadcast and corporate editor for over 30 years, starting on one inch tape, working through many formats, right up to today's NLEs.

Under the name Idustrial Revolution, I have written and sold plugins for Final Cut Pro for 13 years.

I was made a Freeman of Lichfield through The Worshipful Company of Smiths (established 1601). Though I haven't yet tried to herd a flock of sheep through the city centre!

Current Editing

great house giveaway 2020

2020 has been busy, the beginning of the year was finishing off a new property series (cut on FCP) for Channel 4 called The Great House Giveaway. I also designed and built the majority of the graphics as Motion templates. It has been a great success and the shows grabbed more viewers in the 4pm weekday slot than any previous strand. It has been recommissioned by C4 for 60 episodes, including prime-time versions and five themed programmes. The shows have also been nominated for a 2021 BAFTA.

Tour de france 2020
Although both were postponed to later in the year, I worked again on ITV's coverage of the Tour de France and La Vuelta. 2020 was my 25th year of editing the TdF and my 20th year as lead editor. The Tour was the first broadcast show to adopt FCPX working for multiple editors on shared storage.


BBC snooker the crucible

BBC's Snooker has played a big part in my life, I've been editing tournament coverage since 1997. I'm proud to be part of a very creative team that has pioneered many new ideas and workflows that are now industry standard in sports' production. This is currently an Adobe Premiere edit.

Covid cancelled some of the regular corporate events that I edit such as trade shows & events. I was lucky however to edit, from home, on projects for Amazon Kindle, Amazon Black Friday, Mastercard and very proud to have helped local charitable trust Kendall & Wall secure lottery funding.

As for software, my weapon of choice is Final Cut Pro and Motion, but I also have a good knowledge and broadcast credits with Adobe Premiere Pro, MOGRT design and Photoshop.

Plugin Design & Development

I'm the creative force behind Idustrial Revolution, one of the oldest Final Cut Pro plugin developers. It hosts a range of commercial and free plugins on the site. One free plugin was downloaded over a thousand times within 24 hours of release.

I also take on custom work, whether it is adapting an existing plugin for a special use or designing new plugins for clients from scratch. Having a good knowledge of editing allows me to build-in flexibility and more importantly, usability.


Now in its 10th year and 4th redesign, running FCP.co has given me knowledge on how to run a large CMS- you are currently reading my bio from the database! Although it sounds corny, I am pretty well up on social media trends & techniques, especially in the video sector. The recent Covid restrictions has enabled live FCP.co shows online. This involves managing a Zoom Webinar through Restream.io to YouTube and Facebook. 

The Future

I'm always open to new ideas and opportunities, so please get in touch at editor (at) fcp.co. I've judged film competitions, presented workflow techniques to international audiences and come up with ideas for TV shows and software programs!
