Apple's digital editing software has long been used by professional editors around the world. This course will provide students instruction on the complete process of editing on Final Cut Pro X, from organizing footage to uploading to the web. Topics covered include basic editing, trimming, transitions, titling, sound, color correction and an intro to special effects. Students may sign up for 10 hours of additional practice time outside of class during regular business hours to familiarize themselves with the system. No previous film/video editing experience is necessary but familiarity with the Macintosh computer is required. Important note: Final Cut Pro X only runs on Apple computers.
