Transcripts

1. Fcpx 2020 essentials course intro : Hi, my name is Greg Kang and Canadian videographer. Welcome to the Final Cut Pro X essentials video editing course. This course is designed to take you from beginner, whether you have no experience at all to a comfortable professional user to service clients were freelancing or even corporate clients. Or maybe you want to do social media where you're creating videos for Instagram, Facebook ads, or whatever the case may be. We are going to supply you with the practice footage that you can download shot with different cameras, like mirrorless cameras that can shoot 4K DSLRs, Go Pro's, 360 cameras, whatever the case may be, you are going to get a great variety of finish to practice with. We're going to start with the basics, walking you through the different panels in Final Cut Pro X, importing the footage, adding titles and texts, transitions, color grading to more advanced stuff like multichannel video editing, sinking green screen tutorials and a whole lot more. I'd been video editing since 2011 on Final Cut Pro X when it was first introduced. So I've got a lot of experience with this platform. And I can bring that experience in the course teaching in the fundamentals. And as a bonus, a mosque gonna take you behind the scenes, showing you how I added customer client videos so that you can learn from real-world experience. If you're unsure whether to invest your time and money will Final Cut Pro X or Dolby premier 20-20. Don't sweat it because I've also included Adobe Premiere 20-20 and provision of both platforms. So you're gonna get access to a whole new course design for beginners that's going to cover a complete workflow as well as all the things that are included with Final Cut Pro X and beginner's approach, practice footage, multichannel, video editing, et cetera. The next step is to click some of the free lessons and if you enjoy it, and I hope to see you in the course on the other side. 2. New features for Final Cut Pro X 10: Welcome to Final Cut Pro X 2020. Welcome to the Course, everyone. In our last course, The Complete Guide to Final Cut Pro X, we recorded what we had at the current time was version 10.4 in photocopier wax. And that had some game changing features like support for 360 video. But it's 20-20 now. And there's been a lot of changes in Final Cut Pro X. And just to go through some of these changes, it's always good to have an online reference that will always be up-to-date. So this URL over here, the Apple website, in my opinion, is a good reference to look at the new changes and also have some hyperlinks so you can actually learn how to do them. So if we expand the table contents, we can see what is new. So we last left off in version 10.4. And if you want coverage of all the fundamental features before that version, I recommend you check out our course, The Final Cut Pro X Complete Guide. And we're gonna be looking at some of the newer features 2.4.1. We are gonna give you an introduction to captions. And we're going to cover some of the different new options with roles as it applies to allowing us to better organize our different media, whether it's music, voiceovers, or video, and the different options we have with roles when it comes to sharing. So that will be covered in the course. We're also going to go over to 10.4.4. Now there's so many different options here that we can't cover them all. I'm going to cover the options which I think are most game-changing, most important. So we're going to cover the tiny planet effect, which is going to cover how you can use 360 video footage in a regular project to create the tiny planet effect. That's pretty cool. It's going to allow you to stand out from other videos that are being published today in social media. We're also going to cover the video noise reduction Effect, which I think is a very important, especially with video shot in low-light nighttime. Then we have features in final cup rocks 10.4.6. Not too much of a update here. It's basically just providing extra support for in compatible media. This has to do with the operating system updates. So not too much of a change. They're in 10.4.7, which is the current version as of me 20-20, there's mostly support on the hardware side of things. It's giving you the ability to choose which graphics card that you can use for playback preference. If you do have multiple graphics card, there are some masking improvements when it comes to shape mass, when color grading. And theirs improved HDR support. If you have a professional HDR monitor and there's improved support for HTTP live streaming. So that brings us up to date. As of May 2020, there are going to be continued to be a lot of changes in Final Cut Pro X, as this is Apple's main video editing program. So again, I encourage you to bookmark this URL and you can always keep up to date on the changes that have been released with each new version. And what's good about this online reference is there's hyperlinks. So if you want to learn how to use one of these new features that isn't covered in the course, you now have a good reference to do that. Let's just see an example here. If you want to look at the new time code window, you can click it. And it gives you a nice reference here, straight from Apple. 3. BASICS FCPX 2020 Tour of the interface in depth PT 1: Hello everyone. So to start off the course, we're going to go over the interface of Final Cut Pro X. And let's start off in the top left-hand corner. Alright, so over here we've got our library. This is where we have our projects, our events, our media. So we'll just start off by creating a project. We'll, we'll go over how we can import media and start events and projects in another lesson. But just for the purposes of showing you around, I'm going to create a quick project over here. Ok, so over here is where we can find our photos or music or sound effects. I don't go in here too often myself. If I do need to bring things like photos and music, I will bring them over into what we call the Media Browser. Okay? This area here is where we can find our titles if we want to overlay any titles in the project. And our generators which contain our backgrounds, as well as any shapes like circles and squares that you may want to overlay on top of your projects. So I'll just give you a quick example of how we can put some text on. So if we go over the titles and we'll have a separate lesson on this, right? So we can just use a search bar. So the search bar will allow us to filter down things a lot easier. So we can just put down a title over top there just like that. And so that's the titles area. And we can filter on our different libraries. Over here. Over here, this is our background task. So I'm just going to quickly create a quick video that will show us the background tasks. Okay, so I've just exported a quick video just to kick off the background tasks. As you can see, if there's anything happening with Final Cut when it comes to rendering a video to importing, this area is going to have some activity. So you can always, if you're wondering what's happening. If you've exported a project and you want to see the progress, you can always bring this up with command nine. So that is our background task. If you want to set up keyword shortcuts, This is where you can find it. And this area is where you can get the shortcut to import some new media. Also, there's multiple ways to can import media which I'll cover later on. But in this important media window, we have some options here. I'll walk through very quickly. So if you have multiple hard drives, this is where you're going to find them. You can also add, just create some media with their FaceTime camera as well, right over there. So I just want to bring that up. So depending on what device you have, you're going to see the folders and the files available that you can import. And we've got the area, the choice to create a new event or add to an existing event. We have the option to copy to the Library and leave files in the library, and some additional options for transcoding and doing some generalization and fixing while as being imported and then of course the Import button. So we're going to dive into that later. Okay, so moving on, we're going to focus on this area here. This is what we call our media browser. This is a very important area. This is where we're going to view our media. We can view our media visually as well as in a list. So right now we're viewing it visually, which is nice for just getting quick visual snapshot of what the media looks like. And in this view we can actually zoom out and zoom in using command minus to zoom out and Command Plus to zoom in. So it's nice to zoom out just to get a snapshot. And we can see here that we've got some, we can see the file names here. We expand it. We can see the events. Now from here we can preview what the videos look like. We can scrub by pressing our mouseover. Alright? And we've also got some filtering options in this media browser, which we'll cover in a different lesson. So over here, this is going to switch to our ListView. So over here, this allows us to see more information about a file so we can toggle between our filmstrip mode, which is the visual view we'd work just on atlases lists mode. So let me just expand this window. We can get more information. So we've got the filename, we've got the duration of the clip when it was created. And if you're doing a multi-camera Project, which we will, we can also label it so we get more information about that. Over here is our search. And we can create some really complex filtering options. Like if it does include this word, let's just say MBI, right? You can create some conditions, which I don't use that often. Most of the time I'll just use the general search. So let's just say for example, let's just move the mouse here. I'm looking for all the files with 97 in them, so I can just type 97. And A filter, all the file names that have been all the media that has a 97 in it. Alright, so here we've got a very important area. This is what we call our viewer. So our viewers where we can view the activity that is going on in our timeline. And it's also where we can take a look at some media in our browser. So if I switch to my filmstrip view, so if we're just previewing the footage from the media browser, it's going to display the viewer. So it's basically like our TV. So just some things to note in the viewer. We see the resolution and the frame rates, and whether it's stereo. On the audio side, we can see the name of the file. And over here we have the option to zoom in. And we can also just go to fit, fit in the window. Ok, over here in the View menu, we've got some different options which we will dive into later. Do not worry. So video scopes are if we want to do some advanced color grading and we'll explore this inner color grading section. And that opens up some possibilities if we want to adjust the exposure and what not. So that's a whole nest of menus which we won't dive into right now. If you're gonna do multi-camera video edit, which we will do, we can go over to angles, and we won't do that now because we don't have our second camera. Media imported yet. 3-6, five-year is if you're going to be editing 3-6 videos, which we will cover in the course. And we have different options to adjust the quality. And these are just set on for better performance while we're actually editing. And we have some different options here for the color grading, show captions, as well as the different options for the color channels. That's all in the View menu. Okay, so our video is finished exporting. So you'll get a bubble like this and you can either view it or you can close it. I'm just going to close it right now. Okay, so let's just remove that. The angles view for now. So you have a cleaner view. So let's look at the area at the bottom here. So if we want a full screen, our viewer, we can click here. It will automatically start playing. Okay, so if it does start playing, you'll notice if you look at the, this area over here. Over here, we've got our numerical counter. This is giving us very detailed information of exactly where we are in the timeline. And we can even get this down to the microsecond. So we can also play from here. We can also use the space bar by default to stop and play. So moving on, this is our retiree menu. So we can do things like slow clip down, speeded up. We can freeze it, reverse it, speed ramp, all those types of things. We also have video quality over here, and we even have a show retired video editor. So just a quick example. If we want to speed up a clip eight times, we can quickly do it just by highlighting the clip and going to that menu. Over in this menu we have options to balance the color. We can match colors. We can even show the color Inspector, which is another menu that we can access using that icon there. So two ways of getting to that menu. So we're going to hide the color inspector and some other options that we do have is to automatically enhance the audio and we can match the audio. This is where we can access our cropping distortion and transform. So if we need to move some objects or text around, this is where we would do it. So we can do things like highlight texts, we can click the transform. And so this is where we can move and resize things. Crop is where we can crop the actual image. And if we want, we have some photos in there. We can access our Ken Burns effect, which will allow us to have some motion in the photo. We can also access are the stored menu from there if we want to play around with different angles of an object. Okay? So moving on. So at the bottom here, we have our index. So we have a complex project. Our index menu is going to list out every type of object in your video project timeline and listed out by what it is its file name and this is a title, so we can revisit this later. The index as a sort of a list mode view of your entire project and a good way to troubleshoot something if you know you're getting some weird stuff happening. Beside the index, we have some shortcuts for adding clips to the storyline or the timelines. So be highlighted clip, we can quickly just added clip right after the first one. That type of thing will dive more into that a little bit later. So this is our pointer here. I'm pretty important menu, this is going to list out some of the options we have for our cursor here. By default you're going to be on Select, which is a. So the shortcuts are listed there at anytime. But if I wanted to, let's just say switch to ablate tool, which is a tool I use a lot to make an incision on a clip. I can click here and you can see the cursor now changes its icon to a blade. So I can make quick incisions there. Or you can just press B to access that. If I want to select, select. If I wanna go back to the cursor, I can deselect a and you can see us change back to normal. Right? And there's some other options there. If I want to trim a club, I want to just select a range of Eclipse like that. And we'll dive more into that later. Over here we have the option to switch to other projects. And if we have multiple projects open, you'd see this arrow here so we can toggle back and forth between different projects. Over here, this gives us some information on the entire project howl, how long it is, the duration, that type of thing. This area is giving us information on the selected clip. So if we delete it, it's gone. And if I highlight that, we're getting new information. 4. BASICS FCPX 2020 Tour Pt 2 Customizing: Alright, moving on to the right side, we've got some more important options. I'll cover just some of the main ones here. So this covers our video and audio skimming which is turned on. This allows us to move our mouse over and, and skim the video and audio very quickly. Ok, this one here is important as well. One that I use, it's called snapping. So this is going to change the video editing behavior. And when I bring clips in, these clips are gonna add sort of like a magnet. They're going to have a magnetic behavior. This area is going to allow us to change the appearance of the timeline. For example, we can widen the clips or I can squeeze them vertically like this. Alright? I don't use that too often. We can also resize any of the panels here. If you see an arrow, when you mouse over, you can make that panel wider or larger and it's going to impact the other panels. So I'll make my timeline larger. It's going to make my viewer smaller. Okay, these are two important ones here. So this icon is our effects. So facts are where we can do things like blurred club. We can add special effects, different looks. We can add different filters, for example. This all happens in the effects area. And there's a lot here. You can even add in third party effects for additional effects that aren't available in your install. So you can actually just search for special effect if you know the name in the search bar. And then just make sure that you highlight the appropriate menu on the left side in the effects if you want to see it. Okay. Over here is our transitions. So things like crosses off if you're changing from one scene to another, this is where all the transitions are located. If you want to fade to block that type of thing. This is all in transitions and we'll dive into this later. This also has a search bar. So if you're looking for a specific one, that's where it happens. If you need to close the facts are transitions, just click it again. And it's always over here and the, and the right side of the timeline, there's a shortcut command F5 to open your transitions. Okay? All right, so our Inspector menu is on the top right, and there's a number of different icons here which we'll dive into. So on. This, this is the main inspector menu. This allows us to expand and see different options we have for each clip. Things like scaling in, zooming in and outs, changing the opacity or cropping Eclipse or stabilizing it. And this is all happening in this area of the Inspector menu. And you can see that each of these Options in the menu has the Show button to reveal more options available. And you can see there's a checkbox with each of these items which allows you to enable or disable an option for a single clip, or in some cases, multiple clips. Okay, if we click over here, we can access the, the color board. So this allows us to do things like change the saturation color grade, and we can also change the exposure. So we will definitely have a separate lesson on color grading to explore this whole new area of this very powerful area that allows us to change the look and enhance how the color looks. For our video clips. Overhears the audio area of the Inspector. And this is where all the audio functions are going to be available if we need to do any equalization, enhance the voice, or if we have music, if we want to enhance the base or the treble, This is where it all happens. We can adjust the volume for a clip over here. And again, just like the other area that we can hide and show different options for the different attributes that are available in the audio. We have the option to reduce the noise, noise removal. And we can even just remove the audio entirely from a clip. And this all happens over here in the audio section. Now if we click the information icon, we can get a snapshot of very detailed information. For example, we can get the video resolution, the color recording space, the frame rate, the name of the file. We can even make some notes on the file. We can change its role. Tells us the start and end and duration, the type of Kodak amount of audio channels, some 360 information. One event that is in what library it's in and if it's being optimized and if it's being set to a proxy. So a lot of information over there, and we can even reveal exactly where in our computer, in the finder that the file is. Okay, so we've covered a lot of information and again, we will cover these sections in detail as we move along in the course. Alright, so the last section we're going to cover in our tour of the interface are some different ways we can hide some of the main sections of the interface. For example, we can hide the browser from this icon here just to clean things up a bit. We can hide the timeline using this icon. And we can reveal the Inspector. Or you can use command for as a shortcut. Okay? And the last icon we're going to show you is the share. So from here, we can do things like create our video file or also known as an export. If you want to think about it that way, we can create a DVD. We can send it over to social media like YouTube or Facebook, et cetera. Ok everyone. So that's our tour of Final Cut Pro X. We've covered a lot in this tour, so don't worry if your loss, we're going to cover the sections in detail as we move along the course. 5. BASICS FCPX 2020 Libraries and Importing Footage: Okay guys, we're going to cover the different ways of importing our media into Final Cut. And we'll just describe the different hierarchy that we have. So let's turn our attention to the left side. And we're just going to expand this area here. So we have our library, which is the highest form of container. And our library can contain our events, and our events can contain our media and our projects. So here is an example of an event, and it's got the media that's in here. Lets us change over to zoomed out view you can see or a list mode. So all these files are in this event. And you can have multiple events in a library. And you can just compress these libraries and events to make things a bit cleaner. So here I've got two libraries. And I can even close down a library just to make things a bit cleaner. Or from here I can even import media direct into the library. Over here is just a library that I set up by default. And I can go ahead and close this one just to make this a lot cleaner. Okay, so with the library highlighted, we can pretty much get a snapshot of what is in here. We've got our projects and we got our media organized by date, and we can expand it. Are smart collections are going to create some automatic filters. Say all the video or the audio which we don't have in here yet. And he stills which are photos. And they're also going to show us the different events that we have in a project. Okay? So that is our library. The one thing I will say about a library, if we're just mouse over it, it tells us the location of where it is. So when we create a library, we go to File New Library, or we can open an existing library which is over here. So if we go ahead and create a new library, which will just create a task, I just want to show you the differences on where the libraries located and how it affects your performance. For example, if you have an external hard drive, like a USB three hard drive, which I have connected. We can actually save our library on the external hard drive. Right? And that's great if you are working at a studio which has Final Cut and you want to take the project home with you and work with it. The impact is on performance. Is a SME slower when you're working with large files, particularly if they're 4K video resolution files. And so that's the trade off. So for this course, I'm actually working with a local library. It's stored on the local hard drive. And if you have SSD, which is solid state disk storage, that's going to be a lot faster. It's gonna make your experience a lot better. So definitely a consideration that you wanna think about before you create your library, your projects, and start importing your events. So that's how you can create a library and maybe for practice you can go ahead and start creating your library. And the next lesson we're going to show you how we can import media from a memory card as well as even your FaceTime camera. So to end this lesson, I'm just gonna go ahead and close this external library to keep our final cut nice and clean. 6. BASICS FCPX IMPORTING A NEW EVENT: What's up everyone? To start off our course, we are going to import some practice footage. And what I'm going to recommend is that you start off by creating a new library so you can follow along the course. And I've already created one here, but I'll just walk you through how you can do that. So you go to File New Library and you can select a location you want to save in and the name of the library. So a library is going to be our container for our events and projects center media. So lets her grand container. So I'll just call this Test three, save it and movies. And you can see we have a brand new library. So by default that's going to create an events over here and smart collections. Ok. So now you should be at the same point. The next thing we wanna do is we want to import some media. So for the duration of the course, I'm going to use the fill and Greg library container. So we're gonna start off by importing some footage by going to File Import media. Okay, let's allow it. So I'm gonna take some footage from my hard drive. So I just have to find the folder hair. So I'm going to import this folder. And we have some options here. If we look at the right-hand side, we can add it to an existing events or create a new events in the library. That's what we wanna do. Let's just call it yoga class section. And now we have an option. We wanna copy the files to the library or leave the files in place. I want to copy them to the library because they're sitting on an external hard drive. And if we copy them, we're gonna get faster performance, but it's gonna take a little while to copy the files. And then we have some options. We want to add the keywords. I didn't add keywords to this media, so it doesn't matter. We can assign a role, will just leave everything as it is, and we'll select imports. Okay, this event is already in use. Okay, so we'll just add a b to that. Okay, so our footages now being important to the local library on the local hard drive. Now we can monitor the progress here by looking at her background tasks. And we can expand there and see what it's doing is copying the files. So we would just let it finish importing and then we'll join you in the next lesson when it's complete. 7. BASICS import from sd card and facetime camera to an event: In this lesson, we're going to import our media from a memory cards. So something like an SD card that comes straight out of your camera. And we're also going to record from our camera on our computer. So in this case, FaceTime camera. So to access the menu, we can click this icon here, which is the down-arrow. Laurie can go File Import media or command I. Alright, so we're going to start off by importing on the memory card I'm just going to put on my shirts. Okay, so we're gonna start off with FaceTime camera and let's look at the left area. And once we click it, we're just going to allow Final Cut to access our camera. There we are. Okay. I looked a little bit, lost her for a second. So welcome to the Final Cut Pro X course. We are recording. So we can choose to add this to an existing events or we can create a new event, which is call it face time. And let's call behind the scenes. Okay, and we can copy it to the library or just leave it where it is. This is copied to the library and assign tags. We can sign an audio role and we can select a transcoding option. I'm just going to leave everything as is, and we're going to just import. So now once I selected the Import button and we are now recording, we can see the timer code on the top left of my screen, maybe your top right, what we know we're recording now, welcome to the course. So I hope you're enjoying it. Recording this from the studios in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia nice facility and I hope you're enjoying the course. Ok. So that was our FaceTime recording. So we can see here on our cameras, we've got our different devices so we can even import media from our hard drives. Let's just say if I have some footage, some drone footage, I could do that. And I could select more than one clip. I can hold down shift and the arrow and select multiple clips. But I want to show you how we can import from a memory card, which is probably more likely scenario. So this is my memory card here and got multiple clips. So I can actually highlight these clubs. I can select a portion of it. If I mouse-click And I just selected the range and hold down command, I can select multiple portions or I can just select the entire clip. You can select multiple clips by shift, holding down Shift and mouseclick. Alright? And you can also play the clip if you want to preview it. Okay, and on the right side we have similar options. I can add to an existing events behind the scenes which has been created already when we did the FaceTime camera import. Okay, so I'm going to leave all these options the same. I'll just select, Find people and analyze video for balanced colour. So and we'll also select, Analyze, and fix all your problems. All right, so in the end I'm just going to select, let's base two clips and select imports. There we go. So our background tasks are running. It's importing the media. And on the left side, we can just see that we have an event here. And we should be able to see the clip that we shot from the camera. I'm just going to change it a filmstrip view. So this is the video actually recorded from the FaceTime camera test. Okay. And this is a club that's been imported from my memory card. The other clip is still in progress, as we can see this icon here. But this clip has already been imported and is ready to use in our Final Cut Pro X library. So to recap, what do we do? We imported footage from our memory card and from our computer camera. And we imported it straight into an event called behind the scenes in our library. So if we compress our library, nice and clean. But over here on the media browser, we can see all the footage and we can quickly access it right over there. 8. BASICS FCPX 2020 Events: Alright, let's talk a bit about events. By now. We've already covered the events several times while going through the beginning of this course. So the events are a sub folder of the library. So the events that we currently have here, our yoga class section and behind the scenes. And these are sub-folders of our library fill and Gregg, Right? And again, our events, they can contain our media as well as our projects. So we can create a new project by highlighting a clip and then highlighting a clip in an event and then selecting new projects. So we'll dig into that later. So I also wanted to cover how another way you can create a new event. We uncover creating a new event while in the import folder over here. But when we create a new event from the different menu, you have more options. So from the import menu we have simply an option to create an event. But if we go to File New event, now we've got some other options. So when we create an event, let's just call it cowork space. And we select, Create a New Project. We saw that we had a whole new set of options. So if we just create a new event, we only have one option that's to hit OK and select the library that it's in. Now if we select Create New Project, we have the option to start the event at a certain time code. We can select the resolution, which I will select 4K because in our next lesson we're going to cover 4K footage. We have the option is the frame rates, which I'll select as 24 frames per second. We have the option of selecting the rendering. And we can select the audio option, or we can just use automatic settings. To be honest, you can select a variety of types of different type of media in event, even if you select all these options. But we will just leave it as it is. We will select progress LT 4K resolution. And we will select okay, so there we go. We have another event and we can import media into this event by going to File Import weak. Or we can simply drag and the media from the Finder. If we find the footage, we could simply just drag it in and you see, we get a plus option over there. And yeah, those are two different ways you can import into an event. So in the next lesson, we're going to look at how we import 4K footage and a variety of other media, including stills into this core space event. 9. BASICS FCPX 2020 Creating a new project : Alright everyone, we are going to cover how to create a new project. And after that, we're going to learn how to add new clips to the timeline. So starting a new project, there's two ways. First way is File New and select project. And I'll just call this one cowork space. And we can select the events. I'm going to use the core workspace event. And we can choose the starting time code. I'm going to leave that. And then we have a choice of setting the resolution. So because we've got four k clips here, I can either select a 4K clip, which by default chooses ultra HD 4K. And there are other flavors off 4K if you select the dropdown here. So the most common are this one here, 3840 times 2160, known as ultra HD 4K. This is what your newer television sets in 20-20 beyond our flavor 4K that they're created in. The other main 4K resolution dimension is 4096 times 2160. This is, this is what your, maybe your drone or your mirrorless camera may create. So before you choose a full 4K, you gotta know what resolution of files you have. And when we looked at the files that I had, they were in ultra HD 4K and most of them were in 23.98 frame rate. So let's go ahead and do that. And we can select the rendering here. This is a high quality Kodak here. The LTE is a bit more lightweight and I'll compress 10-bit. 42 is even larger size of file. So yeah, we can just quickly go over to the Apple site if you want to find out more information by this. But for now, you can either select progress 4.2.2 or if you want something that's a little bit lighter, you can use the LT. Okay, let's just head over to Apple site or at the best resource, if you're unclear of the rendering formats, is to head over to this link or just Google Apple progress. And it's at support dot apple.com. And then forward slash and the path which is a set of characters. You can see that right in the video, the path. So it's going from highest quality version of progress, which means higher quality and larger files, to the lighter files. So progress 42 is more higher quality than 42 LT. Lt is more compressed than four to two. And you can see the exact numbers here. That 4.2.2 LT is 70% of the data rate at 30% smaller file sizes. And saying, this is per, perfect when the storage and the data rate or at a premium. And Yeah, it's giving you sort of the resolution and the target data rates. So lets go of progress 42 LT for the duration of this project, because we have a lot of footage share. Okay, so we can go with this resolution. If we wanted to create a full HD project, we could, and we could use those for k clips in there. And we could crop in our images. So I'll repeat this a few times during the course because I think it's a really important point to learn and to be aware of, especially in today's world with higher resolutions. But the main resolution for, let's just say on the web more than YouTube is still full HD. Okay, so let's select, OK. Let's go over to the cowork space events and I'll show you a different way. So this is method2 of creating a projects. So by highlighting your event, you're gonna see some media in the browser. So let's just say this clip here with me. And if we go to the Les mode, we can get more information about that clip. And we can just resize the columns here. Okay, so this is actually an image we can tell by the thumbnail. So I'm looking for a video clip. Actually. There we go. This is a video clip because I can see that icon there. It's a film strip. Alright, so it's a good idea to add these columns to your media browser, video frame rate, and frame size. So that information is over to the rights. So let's just drag those over. Okay? So if you just go over to the right, you can see that we've got different versions of forecasts. So as I explained before, there's the full 4K. And since we already created a project in ultra 4K, let's create one in full 4K. And I'm just gonna make a note of the file is 5-0. There are three favorited. In fact, let's use our keyword technique since this is actually a good situation to apply it. So I'm going to go control for and control for on that clip. Now, I can just simply go to my keyword filter. And these are twofold for Eclipse. Okay, so if I want to create the project, the second way I can right-click and select New Project by default is going to pick up the information from the video file and created in its native resolution. Alright, so hit OK. And now we've created a project with our full 4K clip. 10. BASICS FCPX 2020 INSERT A CLIPb: In this lesson, we're going to learn how to connect our Eclipse or insert or clips into the main timeline. So the simplest way of doing this with a timeline or ready in front of you, meaning a project that's already created, is to simply just highlight the clip and bring that into the timeline. You have more control and where are you going to put it? You can put it on top of the other clip or you can connect it to the clip that's already in there. Or you can even override it by just bringing it in right over it and then you're going to get some other options. Do you want to replace it, replaced from end? And you know, you've got a variety of options there. Another way you could do this is you can select the portion of the clip you want and then drag it in. Alright. So there's another way you can do this. You can actually use the insert area from edits and there is a shortcut for that, which is w. And you have some other options to append to the storyline to override it. Those options that we saw when we put the clip over the existing clip. And other way is we can use these icon shortcuts. If you mouse over, you can see what it's gonna do. Connect the selected clip to the primary storyline. You can see what it's done there. And you can see the different behaviors. If I put the needle there, it's just gonna put it right over. If I do the same thing with that icon is going to append it to the end, right? So this, you can just mouse over to see what it's gonna do. This one is going to upend as well, right? So select our needle and our clip. So it really depends which way you're more comfortable with. The way I do it is I'll just drag it over from the media browser into the timeline. So that's how you can insert a clip into Final Cut Pro X. 11. BASICS FCPX IMPORTING IMAGES: All right, so this is the beginning of our image section or images section. So to begin, we're going to import some images. And so you can create a new events and you can go to File Import, File Import media, and try to find a memory card or your hard drive or your images are. So let's just see if I go to harddrive. So I've actually already imported some stills, but I just want to walk you through the process. So let's just say I'm in this folder and I got some jpegs. So JPEGS are good one, you can also import other graphic formats like P and G. So I can highlight one or many. And you can simply just add them to your event or create a new events. So let's just create a, actually is just added to an existing events, starting to accumulate a lot of events. And you can this select, Import selected. And again, a good way to figure out where the stills are or images in your entire library is to expand smart selections in the Media Browser and just select still. So these are stills in your entire library. Okay, but we want to go to the cowork space event and we can look at our images over here. Okay, so in the next lesson we're going to work with the different images. We're going to learn how we can crop, trim and transform our images in Final Cut Pro X. 12. BASICS FCPX 2020 organizing footage using keywords & favourites: Alright, so in this lesson we're gonna learn how to better organize our footage using keywords, Favorites, et cetera. And let's just say that you imported a folder with some video, audio, add photos. The smarts selection is sort of a parent container that will group all these things for you in your library. Okay, so let's just go back to our yoga event and let's just say we want to organize it better. We can open the keyword area by clicking this key icon or pressing Command K. And we can see here that we have some fields that we can add some keywords. I've already been experimenting with some different ones, so we can just add some keywords. So I've added sits, I've added standing. And let's just add another one. We have the option to remove all the keywords. So if we want, want to apply the keywords, we can simply press command three to apply the standing keyword. Okay, so I'm going to find some clips in my immediate browser that are standing. So I can highlight the entire clip, or I can even just select a portion. I can use I and O. I can use o to set my end points. So you can see the yellow frame is my portion of the clip. I can select command to select another clip. So Command click OK. And let's just say I want to apply the standing keyword. I would just press control three. Okay, enter. So what that has done is it's created a keyword collection for standing, right? So if I'm in my yogi event and I just want to see the standing clips. I can just click this filter here to quickly get all the clips that are standing this event. So I can add more clips to that. Select this one, this one, this one, this one. And command three. There we go. And we select the standing filter. We've got all the standing clips. So we can do the same for the setting ones. So let's highlight them. So if a clip has both standing and sitting, I can just select I can just scrub the clip for the part that is sitting, right. So just like that entire one is sitting. So I can select multiple by holding down command. And let's just say those are all the city ones. I can select control one. Okay? So that's how we apply our keyword filters. Now we can select another type of filter and it's called favorites. If we want to select the clip as a favorite, you can select an entire clip or a portion of the clip as your favorite. Lets say I want to select my favorite portion of this clip, which is that portion there. We can also speed up the playback by pressing L. Okay, so to select the favorite, we press F with the clip highlighted. And you can see there's a green line that has been added. Now to actually use this favorite filter, we would change this drop-down over two favorites. Ok, if we want to select clips that have no keywords, you could select that one, but I've selected keywords for all of them. But the default is to select all clips. Alright, so let's go over to our favorites. Let's just say we wanted to, wanted to unfavored this clip. We can highlight it and select EU, Okay, so that we removes it from our favorites. But just from a real scenario perspective, I wouldn't meant too much time on this at the most, I would use favorites. I might select the favorite portions of the clip using i and o to mark in, mark out, and select favorites like that. And the use of the keywords is also useful because it's quite powerful when you apply those keywords. So again, you can click this icon to access them. And yeah, that's pretty much how we can use our favorites and our keywords to help better organize our footage. Very useful if you've got a lot of media that you're importing bringing into Final Cut. 13. BASICS FCPX 2020 3 point and backtime Edit: Alright, in this video we're going to do what we call a three-point editing. So to do that, we're going to use our selection tool to mark an end points and an L points. So I mark in o to mark out, we're going to highlight a clip in our media browser. And we're gonna select D. So if we highlight this club, maybe we don't want the entire duration. We can see we got bumped five seconds. And what? We can select D to insert it. And that's our 3. So now we're going to do what we call a back time edit. So to do this, we're going to use the range tool. And we're going to use shifty to place it in there. Alright, so that is a three-point edit and a bad time at it. 14. BASICS FCPX 2020 COMPOUND CLIPS: We're gonna cover the compound clip. So a compound clip is when you join two more clips into one clip. And why would you want to do that? Well, it's useful if you want to apply different modifications or transformations or any type of adjustment to multiple clips. So Let's take our attention over to the timeline. And we can see that we've got multiple clips here. Just change cursor to select with a. Let's just say we wanted to change something to all these clips so we could actually highlight all these clips. So with all the clips that we want in the compound, which is right-click and select new compound clip. We can then name our clip as well as the event we want to save it in and hit OK. Okay, you can see this icon here. If we zoom in. So we zoom in, we can see this icon which tells us that it's a compound club. If we search for it, we can see our compound club is over here. So it's actually a separate object in your event. Okay, so I'll show you the power of a compound club. So we could take out the audio for all these clips. Right? Even though we have multiple clips. And just a little tip here, if you want to speed up the playback, You can press L. Once the speed it up, press it two times the speed it up even more. So this will speed up your video editing pretty quickly. Okay, so with the compounds clip created, let's just say we want to change our masters saturation, right? So that's changing it not only for this club, but for the original clip two. So we can break the compound clip by highlighting the compound clip. Go into the clip menu and we can break apart items. Or if you can remember the shortcut key, you can do that as well. Okay? And now you can see that these clips don't have that extra saturation that we just applied to the cop-out clip. We can edit undo to see that again, look how much color and saturation we have. And then if we break it apart again, C dot. So cop-out clips are way of joining multiple clubs together into one. So you can do multiple things like change the color, take the audio out, and just group them to manage them. Easier way that I use compound clips in projects is that let's just say I got a lot of clips that need to be colored in the same way. I'll just highlight them all. Create a compound club and then make the color adjustments to that group. So that's our compound groups. 15. BASICS FCPX 2020 DIFFERENT EDITS HD: This lesson we're going to cover the different types of edits. In Final Cut Pro X, we have the ripple edit, which is one of my favorites. The trim at it, as well as the blade on it. So let's get started. Okay. To start off, we want to bring in at least two clips. So I'm just going to insert this one. I'll just put it right beside. So our replanted, we simply just make sure that we have the select option on our cursor. We can press a at any time. So this is the default. And just be aware that you can zoom in and out of the timeline by holding down Command Plus to zoom in commode. So to be aware of the different ways you can zoom in and out, you can use Command Plus the zoom-in command minus2 zoom out. So let's just zoom in a little bit. So to perform the edit, just bring your mouse aside a clip, you'll see the icon changes into two arrows so we can just simply cut the portion that we want. So the second clip here, we're just cutting it shorter. We can do the same for the first one. And if we want to take off some footage from the beginning of the first clip, we can just hold down the mouse and drag it. So that's the ripple edit, pretty easy. Ok, to do a term edit, we can go over to our menu there or just press T. And you can see we've got a different way of editing so we can highlight the clip here. And we're actually just sliding the portion of the clip that we want. We're not changing the duration unless we do this, but by putting our mouse over the clip, we're just sliding the portion that we want. Okay? Now we can double-click between the two clips and we can see what's happening there when we do this traumatic, right. And we're just sliding the portion that is highlighted. Ok. And this allows us to do more precision at its ok. Now we press escape to go back to normal view. Okay, the final edit we're going to cover is the blade edit. So we can go down to the menu again, or we can just press B. This is one of my favorites. It's a great way to just make a quick incision in a clip. So let's select b. We can see the icon changes and we can simply just cut a clip in half really quickly, really precise, and fast. So that's the three different types of edits. We did the ripple edit, we did the trim at it as well as the blade at it. So my personal favorites, as I mentioned is the ripple edit and the blade edit. I don't use the trim at it too often, but it's good to be aware that it's there. 16. BASICS FCPX 2020 Join, Blade, & Nudge: This lesson we're going to cover the blade tool again, join and nudge edits. Alright, so we've covered how to access the blade tool before. So if we select B, we can make incision at it's now let's say if we want to put those coats back together, we can go to the tremendous you select join clips. Okay, so let's just make that incision. And oops. So with these clips split apart, we can bring our needle in-between. And if we want to nudge this clip to the right, we can press period. Or for me to move it to the left click and press comma. So a nice way of just sliding it like one frame. I can do the same with this clip. Can nudge it to the right, one frame or nudge it to the left. So nice little trick to get really precise with just moving a frame, one frame to the left or to the right. So if you forget that, you can just go over to the term menu to get a review of what those keys are. 17. BASICS FCPX 2020 KEYFRAME MOVEMENT: This video, we're going to look at how we can use keyframes to add some movement to our title. Let's say we want to add some movement to our title. We can use the transform area to add T friends. So with our needle over here, we can click the transform menu. And from here, let's add a keyframe. Add a keyframe. So now we want to advance and move the title. So we can select it over here. I can see we've got these red lines that are following the title. So then we can select done. Now, when we go back to the beginning of the project and press play, you can see we've got some movement in our title. So that's just a quick example of how we can use the transform area, as well as keyframes to add some movement to our basic title. 18. BASICS FCPX 2020 Slip & Slide Edit: We're going to cover these slip and slide edit in this lesson. And to prepare for this lesson, I recommend that you bring at least three clips into the timeline. So I'm just going to highlight a different type of clip. So doesn't look too similar. Ok, let me just delete these two. Ok, so we have three different clips here. I'm just going to mute the audio. Okay, so slip and slide at it is good for sliding the middle clip. Right, to begin the slip edit, we're gonna go over to our pointer menu, select trim. And in the middle clip, we can simply just hold down our mouse left-click. And you can see we're sliding this second clip. We're not actually changing the duration of our project were just slipping the second clip here and we can do it with this one as well. So our slide edit is gonna allow us to actually slide this middle clip, the highlighted clip, around without changing the duration. So hold down Option. Left-click on the second clip and you can see we're sliding it along the clip beside it, both clubs beside it. We can try with this clip here. So it's highlighted. Hold on option. And see, you can see we're sliding that clip there. So just two techniques to be aware of and add to your arsenal. 19. BASICS FCPX 2020 LIFT & REPLACE: This lesson we're gonna learn how to love to clip from the main storyline. And we're also going to learn how to override a clip. So let's get straight to it. So let's just say we have a video project that's getting a little bit more complex. We've got two levels of clips in our project. And this clip is what we refer to as B-roll. So it's cutting to another scene. So for playing this clip, it's going to that scene. So let's just say we want to move this clip. The problem is if we try to move it, the clip on top is trying to go along for the ride. So if you want to take this clip out, can right-click select lift from storyline. And that allows us to move that clip without the orphan clip coming along for the ride. Let's undo that. Now we're going to learn how we can override a clip. So to override a clip, it's a good idea to know how long the original clip is. So if we highlight this club, we can see that it's two seconds. And let's just find another club that's, we've selected a portion that's similar. So we can left-click, bring that down and timeline, and we can select Replace. And now that clip has been replace, just like that. 20. BASICS FCPX 2020 Using titles: This lesson, we're gonna learn how to insert titles into a project, a very important aspect of a video. So to begin this, we're going to continue with our rough draft because we've now got a video that is a need of a title. So whichever project you are working with, we do need to make sure that we have the browser on the left window opens so we can go to window showing workspace. And you wanna make sure that your browser is checked. Otherwise, this is what it's gonna look like. So we can click on window, show and workspace. Or if you remember the shortcut here, you can just bring open the browser just like that. And now we can click on the titles. And in this lesson we're going to insert a basic title and we're going to insert a lower thirds. So basic title is good for the beginning of a video just to describe what it's about. If you want a lower thirds title, That's something that's more descriptive. Usually describing a location and something like that. And you can preview it by putting your mouseover and looking in the viewer window. Okay, so I'm just going to add a lower third. I'm just going to place it somewhere in the middle k. Okay? So I can edit this text by double-clicking in the window. For Workspace. What's the name of this Coco column? And then we can double-click in this area. It's a scribe word is it is a bit hard to see, so let's see what we can do about that. So with the text highlighted in the timeline, let's head over to the inspector on the right. And you can use command for if you don't see that. And we want to click over there on the T, and we have some options here. We can change the bar color. So I immediately makes things easier to see. You can just a blur amount the bar opacity and can even take out the subtitle speed. Whole lot of options that we have yet to customize our texts. Now if we click there, we have the option to choose from some different styles that may look a little bit more fancy. Got 2D styles and we got 3D styles. So this is say I want to have a poppy style. I can do that or commands that to go back. I can even just highlight that portion if I want to make that fancy and make that a little bit fancier. So that's using a preset at selected this font with that size. And yeah, these are all caps. So see what options I have for our descriptor text. At the bottom. I can make it all caps. And we can change the position, the rotation. Have some fun, right? We can always reset that using the arrow for any of these options under the Inspector. Now, what are some other real-life scenarios you might come across? Well, we can actually change the material. So plastic is the default here. And I can even change this to more of a metallic material, right? So there's a lot of options we have on our fonts. We can and not only change the size, the style, we can change the color. And if we scroll down, we've got face, outline, glowed, drop shadow. Each of these can be expanded. So we can change the face of the font. You can change the gradient, the outline. We can change that as well. You can drill down into these colors and there's no end to how much time you want to spend over in this area. That's why the presets are good or just to keep it basic, just some basics. We want the people that are watching this video to be able to view the text, right? The glow is more of the background. We can adjust the opacity, the color, and the radius. Drop shadows. An important one if it doesn't have any drop shadow, can be harder to see. So I encourage you to, if you want to customize it, you can experiment with any of these options over here. But the main customizations I normally make are the type of font, the size, and I'll normally use it all caps. I might put a drop shadow to make it easier. And yeah, that's about it. Wouldn't make it to fancy. Okay, so that's lower thirds. Let's go over to a basic title. This is more of a title for the beginning. So over here in the text area, we got titles highlighted. So there's a lot we can choose from just by looking at the beginning here. So if I just wanted a basic one, I can choose basic 3D. I can already see what it's gonna do. I can just drag that over here, can change the length. And I can just the texts over here or in the inspector. You can see that's too big. So make it smaller, make it all caps. I can quickly even choose a 3D style because this is 3D text. So right away I've got completely different looking texts just by choosing 3D. So this one looks a bit more Asian style. Alright, playback to see what it looks like. A little bit small, so I can make this bigger. So we've covered the lower thirds tax, and we've covered more of a basic 3D text title that we can use for an intro. And yeah, these are important elements of any video. 21. BASICS FCPX 2020 USING & CUSTOMIZING TITLES: In this lesson, we're going to add a basic title. We're going to customize it and then we're going to save it so we can recall later. So to begin, make sure you've got the browser open with the titles and January a sidebar. And we can just select titles and just search for basic. So that's gonna give us this basic title which we can drag into the timeline. So we can see it's ten seconds long. We're just going to shorten that to three seconds. Okay, let's just name it. Tai. Alright, so first option we have is to change the font. So we gotta font there. We can, in some cases make it bold or italicized. Let's make it a bit bigger. We can change the alignment. Right? Centers. Good default, vertical alignment, line spacing between the letters. That can be a good option. We can also change the baseline. So how high do we want this? Right? The baseline, that's the horizontal line where it sets. You can change it in all caps or changes the all caps size. Some other options we do have. We can even change the rotation. I'm not gonna do that. Now the face is where we can change the color, right? We can give it a custom color, say green, and can even give it an outline. You have a red outline but it's not visible, so we'll make it a bit thicker. Okay, in fact, I want to change this color from green to maybe a yellow. This is, there we go. Tai style can add drop shadow, which is not really visible. There it is now. Ok. So that's my custom look. Now when I'm ready to save it, I can browse back to the top. I can click up here and select, Save All format and appearance attributes. Let me just call this Thai style. Okay, so now I can delete this. And let's just say I'm starting from scratch. I gotta basic title over here. And I want to recall my preset. I can click up here and find Thai style. There we go. So that's how we can create our custom basic title, customize it and save and recall it. 22. BASICS FCPX 2020 Rough Cut: In this lesson, we're gonna do a really short rough cut using the skills that we learn. The one thing I am going to add here and we're going to cover this deeper in the next section is to add some music and video. Sometimes just need some music to add some flow. So It's very similar to how we import the media, except we're just going to look for music instead of video clips. So we're gonna go to File Import media. And I'm just going to try find a few songs from my library. So just a few tips for where to find it. You can go to a stock footage clips, stock footage sites like story blocks, I'll calm pond five. Or you can even go to YouTube. If you have a YouTube account, go to the audio library, or you can go to ccMixter.org. So here's some music that I've got from story blocks and it's going to select up here. Alright, so I previewed the clip and I'm just going to add it to the core workspace. So that's we, that's how we import audio over to the product. And we can see if we go to our smart collections, we can easily find her clip. Okay, so rough cut, we're gonna start a new one. And what I'm gonna do is look for a clip to start out the project with. Okay, this is a good one to start out with. Actually maybe not. So just a few tips about, you know, thinking about story. It's good to establish the scene before you begin to get into the details. So a scene like this is actually good for starting out. That's gonna take a quick look at the resolution, 3840 times 2160. I'm in my filmstrip view. It's easier to see the visual thumbnail off Eclipse. So I'm going to right-click and select New Project. Rough cut. So we're gonna create something pretty simple. We're just going to add some music. Audio only. Drag down this clip. And we're just gonna try to go with the music. Alright, let's bring that in. Center in points. It's actually the owner of this workspace. Okay, let's adopt one there. This one's good. This one we've already selected the scene that we'd like to use i for the start point, for the out point. Let's see what we got so far. And that's a bit long. So we're going to use our technique to, to change the duration. And we'll add a transition command t. Then we'll add a clip where we can see that more. Change up the scenery. So I and O, this clip slice. So let's replace that. Let's use our replaced technique. I'm going to add in a transition using some photos. And we can use a smart collections to quickly filter the photos. There we go. We should let's get myself from the scatter wall one and then one more clip. This changed the duration. Four seconds. Ready is four seconds. Okay, I think that's a good point to cut off our rough cut. So we're going to learn more about audio in the next section. But basically, it's very similar to editing video or something. Just gonna fade that outs. And we're going to add our fate to block two n thus. And that's how we fade out. Okay, so lets just zoom out command minus and play this back. Let's full screen up. Alright. So you have access to the properties footage. Let's see what you can create. Just try to create a 30-second rough cut, something really fast. And just to finish it up, we're gonna go to File share, master file. Of course we're going to learn this in detail, but this is quickly how we can just create our video file. We're going to select format video and audio because we want the music as well. Video codec H.264. Remember we went over the different progress formats. H.264 is more of the standard on the internet for compressed video. Resolution is going to be 4K. And we're gonna select next and select the destination and safe. We can see the progress of the rough cut in our background tasks. By looking at command line, you can see we're ready 8% along the way. So good luck on creating your rough cut. There is no real boundaries. Just use the footage and try to use some of the techniques that you learned and have fun. 23. FCPX Add audio 2 ways: So the first way, and we've covered this during the rough cut is to go to File Import media. Just like we did with the video clip. Find the audio clip and simply just select the events one added to whether you want a copy to the Library or just leave fun place, I recommend to copy to Library and select Import. I'm not gonna do that because I think you've seen up before and you know how that works. So I'm gonna use method2 to add audio and the method that I, I use this on a regular basis. So the first step is to find your music truck. And I mentioned some places you can find some trucks. Ccmixter.org is a free source. You can also go to the audio library if you have a YouTube channel. So with your clips highlighted, you can simply just highlight them. And you can drop them into the media browser. You can drop them into the timeline, or you can drop them into the event. Alright? So that should be pretty fast. If I select my audio only in the smart collections is to find all the audio and music tracks that are in my library. So again, just a refresher. The library is all these events and the media that are contained within the events. So really nice way to quickly see all our music is to go to all you're only. And just like video, we can preview them in the Media Browser. And in the next lesson we're gonna learn how to adjust the audio levels. 24. FCPX 2020 synching video and audio: Okay, this is going to be less than about sinking video with audio. So let me give you some background to why this is important. So let's just say you're recording an interview and you don't have audio on your camera, but maybe you're using a audio recorder. So separate audio source, or maybe recorded multiple audio sources. And in this case, we've got a wireless mike recording directly into the camera though. I was miked up on. But I was also doing a two-person interview with just audio. And now I want to sync that audio interview with the video file or the video feed with that audio file. So to do that, we need both the video clip and the audio clip in the same area. It's easier if it's in the same events. So I'll just try to supply you with these files. So over here we've got the video clip. Okay, so that's the video clip. So that just has one live mic you can see hooked up to my shirt. There was a pretty long day. And this is the audio coming from my other set of mix which had Mike on me and Mike on Chris. So in this case, I want to use the audio from the audio file because it was higher quality. So we're going to sync these two files. Let's just that video back in the window. And we can deal with how we can sharpen up that image after. So we're going to highlight these two files. Right-click and we're gonna select Synchronize Clips. So we can name this file. I'm just gonna go with the default. We can choose what event. We can choose the starting time code. And we can use audio for synchronization, which is exactly what we wanna do. And we're just gonna go with the defaults. If we use custom settings, we can see there's more options there. Let's just go with that and hit OK. So what it's gonna do is it's going to match up the audio from the video clip. And we're going to end up with a synchronized file. So I can right-click on this and select New Project. I'll just call it sinks interview. Hit. Okay. And if I double-click okay, and we zoom in, we can see the the part where the audio was recording without the video, which results. It's in that blank spot there. But now that the audio has been St. using Final Cut software, we can now disable one of the audio trucks. So let's press escape to get out of the precision editor, we're going to highlight the video clip and should be able to lift this up here, the audio configuration. So we can double-click and we can get a better view of what's going on here. So you can see that we are getting the audio from the audio track. The audio from the video has been disabled. But we can enable it by checking the dialogue one box. If I uncheck that, it's coming from our audio feed, which is what we want. And so if we were to actually use this, we could use our blade tool to just cut this part off because Final Cut is taking care of the sinking. And we're gonna delete that. So now we can actually combine these two clips into one pile club, which we will learn more about later. Now we can proceed to do things like trim the interview. We can actually apply some of our new techniques to do things like improve the background noise and make it sound a whole lot better. So that's a overview of how we can sync video and audio clips in Final Cut Pro X. 25. FCPX 2020 Adjust Audio, enable, detach: And we're going to learn how to adjust the audio levels. We're going to learn how to detach the audio from your video. So let's learn how to detach the audio first. And we'll also learn a third thing, how to disable audio from the video clip. Okay, so if we're looking at our rough cut, We've got our music here. And let's just say we want to just disable the music for now. We can uncheck that box in the inspector. And I can see it's not playing. Or with this. We can disable it. So it's blocked out. Ok, so two different ways. I would say if you've got multiple audio sources, it's easier just to uncheck it from the inspector. Okay. So let's just say from this clip, I wanted to take the audio out. I could simply just uncheck it. Let's cover how we can take the audio out of a video clip. Let's just say maybe you want to get the audio out of their user for some background noise. So we can just right-click on a club and select detached audio. Okay, and then we have a or for an audio clip that we can move around, we can delete. Okay, and now the third thing is how do we adjust audio levels? So let's enable our music again. And let's just disable all the music from our rough cuts. So quick way to do that is to highlight all the clips and go to our Inspector with the audio icon highlighted. And we can just simply uncheck it. That takes all the audio out of our projects and now we just have our music. So if we want to adjust the levels of our music, we can highlight the audio track or the music clip. We can go to the inspector and we can move it down. But there'll be too quiet. We can look at this waveform here. And we can see that as we bring it down to minus 16 is becoming a lot softer. Now helps if we expand the project. If we bring it to 0, so zeros or default, if we bring it over to 12, which is the maximum, pretty loud. So if we see here there's some peaks that are yellow and red. That means that you're starting to peak. Meaning that the audio is a bit too loud, louder than normal and starting to distort. You can see over here. And that means that it's probably too loud. So if we want to make it allowed but not too loud, we can this adjusted over there. So that's how we can, Just to recap, how we can adjust the volume, how we can enable and detach our audio from audio and video clips. 26. FCPX Working with Music & Audio: Alright, we're going to learn how can we work with music in Final Cut Pro X. And this applies to any type of video editing that we have. So I'm going to start off by showing you how we can find music, and this is my Youtube channel, by the way, welcome to check it out and subscribe. But from here, Creator Studio, this is where you can access the audio library. So you need a YouTube channel to be able to access this. This will give you music that you can monetize on. And it's a good starting point, especially if you do want to create videos for YouTube. Sometimes I have customers that do vacation videos and they want commercial songs. So songs that cannot be monetized on YouTube. And it just depends on what type of project that you have. But I'm just going to continue the rest of the lesson, assuming that you want song that you can monetize on. So audio Library as one option here. And we can just search for something in the search bar. Can search for type of category. Let's just try house. Maybe another one. It's not that there's a whole bunch of filters that you can use those wall and depending on the type of video you may have, you may already have finished the video project and you know how long it is. So then you can filter by a duration, can filter by instruments, by mood, and even by the attribution. So a lot of different filters available in YouTube's all your libraries. So we can just click to download, is gonna give us an MP3. Now before we go to Final Cut, there is some other sites I can recommend. One of those is Video Blocks. This is a paid service, gives you access to not only stock video, but also audio and sound effects and images. So that's another option. Another place I get music from is ccMixter.org. So this is a free library, but rules change quite often these days. And you can come to a site that was free one month and then next month that may be paid. But I've gotten some good free tracks from ccMixter.org. But to be safe, it's always good to go with YouTube's audio library or investing a little bit in a site like Video Blocks or invade. Oh, there's a lot of different stock footage and audio sites that you can use. So once you've got your music track, let's go over to Final Cut. And we'll just take our existing video Prozac or yoga project and we'll import some music file import media. And I believe it is in the downloads. All right, if you can't find it, you can simply drag it from the Finder. There we go. So I've just done maximize window. Simply drag this trade into the timeline. Alright. So if you're looking for how to import media, I recommend just refreshing your memory on those lessons. The way I do it sometimes is I'm in the middle of an edit and I just want to get it in there quickly. I'll just quickly dragon in. Alright, so we've got our music track in here. Okay, So when working with music in Final Cut, there's a few things we need to take into consideration. The first is if there's already some vocals or so on talking, we don't want the background noise or the music to drown out. The speaker. Can highlight the music track. And we can take a look at all your profiles here. Probably don't want to do music enhance. So what we can do is just decrease the audio, usually around minus 15 to minus 25. Somewhere around that range will allow you to still hear the music, but not drown out the person speaking. And I recommend putting on some headphones for this type of work. And yes, so playback and see how it sounds. Spacebar. Okay, that sounds a little too too low, so I'm going to just drag it up. So you can also increase and decrease the volume straight from the audio track in the timeline. Okay, so that's a good audio volume. Next thing we need to do is trim the songs so that it's just a little bit longer than the video. And then if you haven't seen the fade in, fade out lesson check that out. We're just going to quickly fade this track out. And the last thing we need to do is when we export the projects. So file, share, master file. There is one more thing you need to be aware of. And by default, if you selected format, video and audio, then it's going to export the video and the music and any type of audio along with the rest of the project. But if you just want the audio, Let's just say if you're editing a podcast and you don't want the video, maybe you just want to export an audio track so you can switch that to audio only. And then you have the choice of different audio formats and that's just going to export the audio, none of the video. So just want you to be aware of that. But especially when your ex morning music videos, you want video and audio on the truck. So that's it. That's how we can work with music in Final Cut Pro X using real life example. 27. FCPX 2020 FADE IN AND FADE OUT: Hi. In this video, we're going to learn how to fade in fade out music. We're going to start with our example, the rough cut, to demonstrate how we do that. So what you need to do this as you need an audio track. And I've just got some audio with my camera here, so I'm going to find some music so I can demonstrate this a bit better. Okay, so I've got a song here I can just put down into the timeline. Usually you want to fade out music at the end of the video. So I'm just going to zoom out. You can see this is a long track. Harris is four minutes, so I'm just going to trim it by clicking and dragging the clip so it matches the end. So I'm just zooming out using Command Minus k. And remember the trim, this excess transition, otherwise, you're gonna end up with a blank spot. Okay, so we're ready to fade out. So I'm just going to play this back. Zoom out and then we'll play this back a bit. Alright, so you can hear that it just ends abruptly. So I'm just going to minimize that. So to fade in, fade out audio or music, we need to bring a audio track into the timeline. So let's do that. I'll provide you some practice falls if you don't have some music handy. So we're just going to line things up so that your trunk lines up with the length of this video. And I'm just gonna take the audio from the camera. Ok, so now we just have the music. Alright, so we're going to place our mouse cursor over the beginning of the audio track. So there's an icon over here. And you can see how the mouse cursor changes to those left and right arrows. Well, we're going to left-click and drag because you want to fade this tracking. So we're gonna click and drag it to the right. The more we drag it, the further we drag it, the more the fade effect is going to be pronounced. So let's play this back with the spacebar. That's good. And we can see this truck is way longer than the video trucks. So at the end of the track, we also have another icon we can click and drag to the left. I'm just going to zoom in a bit. And we can drag that to the left. And you can see a little bit of a curve. Some, some movement action there. So we've applied our fade out effects. But for real life scenario, we need to trim the song a bit. And I recommend extending the audio track a little bit longer than the end of the video. And let's just go to middle and play Bach. Alright, so that's a nice fade out. And a little something extra since we're fading out the music, it's also nice to fade out. The video tracks with a faded color effect from dissolves so you can check our transition lesson for that. So let's hit the spacebar to play back. Alright, there we go. So that's how we can fade in and fade out. 28. FCPX how to do a voiceover: We're going to learn how to do voiceovers in Final Cut Pro X. So what our voice overs useful for, they are useful for putting your audio over images or video. Let's just say if wanted to do a documentary and you wanted to give some contexts are just explain what's happening in the video. Sometimes it's easier to do in a studio setting when you're not actually doing the action. Let's just say I was doing a yoga lesson and I wanted to concentrate on the yoga, but I wanted to give some instructions so you could lay out the video in the timeline and record a voiceover. So for this example, I'm going to use the rough cut example. I've got some clips that are already in the timeline and abba music track. So to open the voice over, we can go to window and select record voiceover shortcut keys right beside it, if you can remember that combination. So now we've got the record voiceover window. So over here we can see that we've got our microphone level because I already have my external mike connected. And we also have our input gain here that you adjusts for some microphones. Now, this will also be the name of the file here. So you can make adjustments. You can call it something else digital nomad one opened the advanced. This allows you to select the different microphones that can use the built-in. Or I can select the stereo on my external microphone, or I can choose a model track. You can select the monitor to beyond. If you want to hear yourself. That can be a bit annoying. So I turn it off. You can get a count down before I start, I find that's useful. You can meet the project Wall recording. So I'm going to check that because we've got a music track on here. And I don't necessarily want to hear it while it's playing. We can create an audition from the takes. So audition is a feature. If I'm going to do multiple takes, and I want to select from the different takes and see which one is best. I'll demo that in this lesson later on. You can choose what you vent to save it in, and we can choose a role for it. So let's start off by recording our first four silver. Please don't laugh. Cowork spaces have been a second home for digital nomads. It's a place where digital nomads can hang out, do their work. And some cases you can combine it into a bit of a getaway from the usual office, from home or cafe. Let's just say I want to create another take. I'm gonna bring the needle back to the beginning and press record. Chae My Thailand. This is the coco cola cowork space, one of the newer coerce spaces in Chiang Mai, bringing a little bit of the Bali flavor to tie line with the coconuts. A lot of greenery, swimming pools added very nice modern nature vibe. Press stop. Okay, that wasn't too smooth. So we can zoom in here. We can see there's a spotlight on the audio track. So what that is, that's the additions. So we can double-click on that. And we have two different tracks to choose from. So we got the first tick, this playback. So we can select this one if we want as the better one. And this one's the currents selected, we also have the option to duplicate, but I'm just gonna go with that one. Okay, so that's how we do voiceovers in Final Cut and some explanation of how we can customize the voiceover feature. Walls where we can save the events, do a countdown, and the audition feature, which allows us to do many tasks and choose which one we want to use in our video projects. So personally, I use voiceovers quiet a bit for my YouTube videos. And it allows you to do a different style of video. I think it's good for documentaries and explaining videos is no limit to how you can make a combination of photos, videos, and audio to create a interesting or informative video for your listener. 29. FCPX How to pan Audio: Right, this lesson we're going to cover how do we pan or audio. So to do this, we're going to work with a music track. And if you haven't, you can download the music track. I'll try to supply you with one to practice with and the project files. You can also use a video track with some dialogue, but I think music is a better example for this lesson. So padding allows us to change which speaker or earphone that the audio is gonna come up with. So I recommend putting on a pair of headphones for this lesson. So we've got our audio track in the timeline, and we're going to start by playing it back. Ok. If you haven't already opened the Command inspector with command for and highlight your music track. So if you scroll down near the bottom, you'll see an area that says pan. So you can expand that by clicking Show. And The default would be to have no panning. But if we want to just pan left one side of the speaker, let's just say have music coming out of the left. We can just highlight the track and then go over to the left and press play. The cool thing about this feature is you can make adjustments real time, sock and other music track playing back and experiments. Okay, if I want Center, I can press 0. And this is where we can experiment with the different surround audio profiles here. Since basic surround. And we've always got an option to adjust the amounts so you can go to a 100% or minus 100 zeros of default. I wanted to point out the surround plotter. I'm not an audio expert, but I wanted to point out that you've got a visual outlay of the room and you can enable and disable these speakers over here. There's also an advanced area that allows you to just a whole lot of settings that, to be honest, I'm not familiar with. So if you're an audio engineer, Final Cut Pro X has a lot of options for you to fine tune your music. In the inspector. The best thing I can recommend is to throw on a pair of headphones to play the track real-time and try out some of these different profiles as you're listening to the music. And just remember that you can always undo by clicking the reset arrow. You can also adjust the amount of that effect over here so that you can really create a whole lot of custom audio profiles for your vocal track or your music. So that's the pan area in Final Cut Pro X. 30. FCPX 2020 Improving your audio: Going to get some tips for how we can make our audio sound better in Final Cut Pro X. And before we start, I just want to always suggest that you try to improve the sound in production if you have that chance, sometimes you don't always have that opportunity. Let's just say you're given some footage that has been shocked by someone else and your job is just to edit it. But if you do have control over recording the audio in the field, just google some tips on how to improve your audio, but some tips from me on how to do that are to have the microphone as close to your mouth as possible. Look at your recording levels to make sure that you are recording at a good volume, but not too loud that it's peaking. And also tap a quiet environment. I'm recording in a studio right now with padding on the sides to absorb the sound. Carpeting is also a good material to absorb sound. Surfaces like glass and concrete can create a lot of echo. So again, always tried to improve your audio in production. It'll make your life, no matter what software you're using a lot easier. With that being said, we've got two clips here. I will supply you with some footage to practice. The first clip here has already being treated for noise removal. So we'll just play this back. This is the conclusion to our yoga course. And if you're interested in yoga, you can check out Yogi vibes. And I'm helping to produce this course as well. So you can always easily, you'll always get you. Okay, so that's the treated audio. We used a wireless live Mike setup with carpet on the flooring. And there is lot of concrete flooring around it is open space, so there is going to be a little bit of echo in that environment. Now this is what the raw clip sounds like. Okay? So I recommend putting some headphones on. I can hear there is some background noise. So if we go to the inspector command for, we can open up this panel where we can click on the audio icon. And first thing we can do is to click the magic ones. And that'll do an audio analysis. It'll make some recommendations based on its algorithm. And you can use those as suggestions to see how it improves. So you can see that we can apply these suggestions by checking the box. So it recommends loudness, 90% noise removal, and Hmmm removal. Okay. That sounds like a bit equi like we're in a bubble but hollow, so I'm gonna uncheck the hmm. Okay, let's uncheck the loudness here. I like to apply noise removal as a default. Now with the noise removal, you can adjust the amounts so you can turn down the effect. So every situation is going to be unique. I recommend you experiment a little bit. Let's try 50 again. Let's take it off and see how that sounds. Let's put it on. We can definitely hear the difference that the noise removal makes. So I'm going to keep that. Some other options you have to enhance the audio is you can click over by the equalization and you can do things like voice enhance. So let's hear that. Let's go over to the audio part. Let's take it off. Okay, I like it better without equalization. So this is going to be unique to every acoustic environment. But once you find the right audio profile, and let's just say you've done a series of recordings in the same environments. You can just keep that audio profile and apply it to the rest of your video projects. You can do that by going to edit copy. And let's just say you want to pace those attributes, you go pace attributes. And you would make sure that the audio attributes are now paste it to the feature clip. So just to summarize, there's a number of things that you can do to improve audio. And you can take an entire course on that. But always better to record in a better environment that will help ease a lot of the work you need to do in post-production. But the inspector in Final Cut Pro X offers a audio wizard which will give you some recommendations that you can choose supplier not. And I went through on a pair of headphones, listen to how that sounds to your ear and see what works or not. If it's too loud, you're gonna see your audio immediate meters peeking over here. It's going to go into the red zone. So you can do things like adjust the volume, make it a bit softer. You can see here that we're in a negative area minus 5.2 decibels. If was too soft, you would do the opposite. You would make it louder. And there is a limit there of 12 decibels. And then there's other enhancements we can make like noise removal, HUB removal. But like I said, in most cases I will just use the noise removal to remove some background noise. And even with that option, we can choose how much intensity we want on that filter. So hope that help gives you some recommendations on how to improve your audio, make it sound better. And Final Cut. Thanks again for taking my time for me to congregate. Jury. Here has my student to come the cost now. So I hope you enjoyed it. 31. FCPX 2020 How to Fix Audio in an Interview: Do thus, Chris. Alright. So yeah, tell us a little bit about yourself. Where are you from originally? So from Janice Berg, South Africa. We have another example of how we can work on improving the audio for our clip in Final Cut Pro X here we have a sync to interview where we are using the audio from my audio recorder. And now I'm going to proceed to make it sound better. So how are we going to approach this? Okay, so the first thing we can do is click the magic one in the inspector if you don't see it command for and just make sure that the audio icon is highlighted. Final Cut Pro is analyzing this club. It's going to make some recommendations. And then we can make some decisions on how we want to make it sound better. So I recommend having some headphones on for pretty much this entire audio section. So you can clearly hear what is exactly going on. It's a lot different when you're doing this from your phone or you're just watching it on your computer through some different set of speakers. Okay, so let's just bring this audio configuration down. So Final Cut Pro X has made some recommendations. Let's just say we want to remove the noise. Pick the noise removal at around 50%, takes care of that. Now I'm also going to experiment with some equalization. I'm going to experiment with some of the vocal enhancing settings here. So let's give that a try. Fois enhance, maybe some base. You can even click the equalizer to see exactly what it's doing here. And we have some different options here. I'm not an audio expert, but if you are, that's great. You have lot of options to adjust different settings, which to be honest, I'm not an expert on. Okay. Let's played back. Okay, we can uncheck it. Okay, let's experiment with the loudness. We can experiment with the padding to give it more of a rich, richer sound. Alright, so the panning, actually the crate space option, allowed us to make, make it a bit more of a richer, fuller sound, like what the noise removal was doing. To remove the background noise. The loudness helped out to amplify the audio, but I was feeling a little bit flat for me. So I recommend experimenting with your situation because maybe different. And you saw the approach that I took here for this situation. I use the wizard as a starting point. I remove some of the background noise. I listened to the audio real-time with some headphones on. And then after removing the noise, I focused on the levels. And then you can do things like look at the panning to see how you can round out or give it a richer audio sounds. So hopeless helps you give us some ideas of how you can improve your audio in Final Cut Pro X. And yet tell us a little bit about yourself. Where are you from originally? So from Janice Berg, South Africa, and grew up there ten years. Moved Canada, grew up. Most of my adult life was educated there. And yeah. Now, living in mostly in Asia. How long have you been living in Asia? Like do you spend most of their time here now? Yeah. Basically the business plan for chiefly ij travel, which shows the time-like luxury. Groupon was big at the time. I was thinking, okay, let me do group buying, luxury travel and it just sounded so appealing at the time. And then you create this business plan, crunch the numbers and I can just kind of make it look like it's, it will work. But then once actually executed it and to executed. Welcome to Final Cut Pro X 20-20. Welcome to the Course, everyone. In our last course, The Complete Guide to Final Cut Pro X, we recorded what we had at the current time. 32. FCPX introduction to captions: This is an intro to captions in Final Cut Pro X. It's a new feature available, I believe since 10.4.7. I'm not an expert, but I want to introduce you to the power and usefulness and benefit of having captions in your video. So we are on the Apple website, which is going to give an explanation of the different caption formats. So we have the Ca 608. So this is a caption standards for broadcasts and web video. We've got ITT, which is the standard for iTunes and the standard that Final Cut Pro X uses. And we've got the S or T, which is the standard for Facebook, YouTube, and Vimeo. So you can get transcriptions are captions created with the time code by services like, I believe cloud services like Rav. If you have a YouTube course, you can also add captions created by the actual website. And I'll show an example of how we can download some transcriptions into a text file that looks like this. Unfortunately, this is not usable by Final Cut as far as I know, but this is an example of captions, has got the time code that's got the phrase. And what we're gonna do here is learn how we can add captions to our project. And we're going to export these captions to separate files as well as burn them in. So I'm gonna show you how we add captions. Let's just say we wanna add a caption. We place the playhead needle there. When we're gonna go to the Edit menu and select captions, add caption. So I'm creating an ITT caption. Congratulations on finishing. And see that it's there. We can also move it. And there's some formatting options which I won't touch right now. To have you enjoyed the class k, let's add another one. Okay, and the idea of this is that we can have a separate caption file which we can upload to platforms like YouTube, Facebook. And we can create these in different languages. So we can have multiple captions with multiple languages that can make this more accessible for people that are watching this particular video. And so we can actually go to File Share. And we can go to master file. I can go to settings. And under roles we can choose if we want to burn these captions in or we can actually export a separate file. So this is how we went burn the captions into the file. Okay, if we just wanted to export the caption file in the ITT format, we can do that. So this is what it looks like with the burning captions. So we've got the captions burn-in. Thanks again for taking my cause has to come. Okay. So that's what I just created. So we're gonna take that ITT file and see if we can re-import these captions that I've created. So I'm going to delete all this and attempt to import the captions. So this is the latest file I created. I can change I can change anything actually. Ok, so I imported the captions and here they are, again for taking my cause. And now it's time for me to Congo Jerry. Now you've got some options in the index area to see where these captions are. There's different roles that you can edit. Within this area. If you've got different captions with different formats. So it can get a little bit tricky. But we've gone through some of the different caption formats. We've gone through how we can create captions. In Final Cut, we've gone through how we export a video file with burning captions, and we've gone through exporting the caption file in the Final Cut Pro X compatible format and we reimported those captions. So that's a good start for captions. In Final Cut Pro X. This is getting into what I think would be more broadcasts style videos that require captions. And maybe you've got an establish YouTube channel and you want to start creating captions in multiple languages. Final Cut Pro X now has deep support for captions in Fano cup products beginning with 10.4.7. Please note this is just an introduction to captions. So something you may want to look at if you want to make your videos more accessible to multiple languages. And just know that these are useful if people are English second language speakers, or a second language of the main language being spoken in your video and you wanna make it more accessible for the volume has been turned on, captions are a way to make your videos more accessible. 33. FCPX 2020 Introduction to roles in FCPX: Alright, as of 10.4.1, there was improved support for captions. Please check out that lesson for an introduction. But another option was improved support for Roles. And this allows you better control of the different media that you see in the timeline, as well as when you're sharing the media that is contained in the timeline in the captions less than you're going to see how we can export just the captions from project. And we're going to see how we can export just different media. Maybe it's separate audio files if we have multiple audio tracks in the project. So let's go over to Final Cut Pro X. So we see the Roles area over in the index. So if you don't see that click index, and normally you can't see the clips area. This is where we can just see the different objects that we have in the timeline or video clips, audio transition. But roles are an area that is new to Final Cut Pro X 10.4.1. And the basic idea is that we can categorize different objects in our timeline. Alright, so we have our roles selected. And you can see in this project, which is in our 360 video section, that we've got a couple of different layers here. We've got a voiceover track and got music video, and we have a adjustment layer. So just to give you an idea of how this works is if we just want to focus in on the music, We can check it. If we want to focus on the voice over, we can check that. We can uncheck different roles here. If we just want to grade them out and we don't want to play them. Let's just say I just want to playback in the timeline. I don't want to see the video, I just want to hear the audio. So because we have the music and the voice over checked, we're just going to hear that. I can uncheck the music is over, or put the video back. Then I'll just here the video on the voiceover. Let's uncheck the music. Tests voiceover. Yo tests VoiceOver. So that's nice. It's nice for leaving everything in the timeline, but you just want to hone in and play back and focus on certain medium. And so we can assign different roles by highlighting the object in the timeline right-clicking. We can assign audio roles. We can also assign video roles. So for example, this over here is a voice-over and I signed it a voice overall over here and wasn't here to begin with. So I actually created it so you can select Edit rolls. And this brings us to a new area. So you can even add your own role. You could just name it whatever you want. Voice over 20-20. And you can add a new video role, maybe you can call it a drone footage, whatever, right? And you can apply. So let's just say I add a drone clip, which I don't currently have here, but let's just say I had an drone clip in the timeline and I wanted to sign and drone clip, I could do that. Right. I have the drone footage roll over here. Maybe what's even better is 360 because I have 360 footage. So 360 footage, that's the new role. I can apply that. So I can actually minimize, sorry, and actually let me just take that music out by unchecking that role. Okay, so I want to know you when a scrubbing through the timeline. So let's just highlight all these 3-6 eclipse command. Okay, now we can right-click sign the video roll 360 video footage. Right? So now we just have a role with a 360 video footage. Just be sure to check everything back when you're exploiting the final project, assuming that you want everything in there. So yeah, Rawls is pretty powerful for categorizing and grouping your contents in the timeline. Let's head over to the share area. And this is another area where we've got rolls and we got some additional options. So we're over in the Roles area. And for the captions, we've got specific coverage for that. But let's just say that we wanted to do a regular project, video and audio. And now we've got some options here. So we can choose, do we want a multi-track QuickTime movies? We want separate files. And once we select separate files, you can see, Wow, we've got a whole lot of options here. I can just focus on the video and that just removes all the audio categories out of the equation. And so it's just saying, okay, I just want to export the 360 footage so I can select next just 360 footage. And let's just open my background tasks. So I can do that. So I would expect that the output is just gonna be a video file with no audio. It's not going to have the other non 3-6 video clips, just the 360 video clips that I tagged with. So that's the roles function. In Final Cut Pro X 2.4.1. A pretty powerful way to organize your footage in the timeline, but also to give you more power to focus on exporting just particular roles when it comes to export and sharing. 34. Fcpx LOW LIGHT noise reduction effect: We're going to test the new noise reduction feature available in Final Cut Pro X sends 10.4.7. And this effect is supposed to help reduce the amount of noise which happens when you shoot in dark or what we call low-light situations. So I've got some proxies footage for you to try this. If you don't have some practice footage, I've got two clips here, and I've brought one and timeline. The other one might need some stabilization. So I'm going to drag that in and just go over to stabilization to stable that clip first. Okay. So while that stabilizes, we can then find the noise reduction, which is in the effects. So you can highlight the video section and go to all over here. And then just search for noise reduction. So there's one for 360 video, one for regular clips. Okay, let's just close this background window. And Let's just take the audio out by unchecking it. So that's going to remove the audio so we can not disturb our ears. Ok, let's see, let's see how this noise reduction feature performs because this is fairly new to me as well. Okay, so I've already applied it to this clip. Ok, so let's zoom in a bit and let's go to 100%. And we're just going to apply the default noise reduction effect by checking it. Okay, we can see it's smoothed out a bit. I've applied the maximum amount. And let's just see what medium looks like. And you can see there's a period where it's processing and we have options to just the sharpness level. Now remember we're zoomed in right now. So if we fit the screen in, this can look even better than it. So we can select maximum. See it's smooth things out quite a bit and we can change the sharpness to medium. So I want to encourage you to experiment and see how this does for you. Let's see what it looks like without it. And with it. Definitely an improvement. I noticed that in this area there has been a lot of improvement. Let's enable it. You can see all those pixels cleaned up a bit. Let's try different video clip now. So we've got the Patronas Towers, and this obviously has some noise here. But we haven't applied the noise reduction yet. So let's go ahead and do that. We can see that stinks some thinking. It's done. And let's go to normal view and see what it's done. Take it off. Take it. Okay, we enable it. Not much of a difference To be honest, let's go up to maximum. Yeah, I can definitely see the dark areas have been smoothed out. Change sharpness to high. Yeah, this has been a definite improvement. Let me zoom in. And then we can make a better judgment here. 100. So if we take this off, Yeah, we can definitely see like the area outside of the towers, this darker has been smoothened out. And on the actual towers that's more defined. So this should look a lot better when we go to normal view. And there's still some noise here, but it has been cleaned up quite a bit as we can see. So there's an example of the noise, the new noise reduction effect applied to two low-light examples. 35. Tiny Planet videos with keyframing: Welcome back everyone. In the last lesson, we created a tiny planet video. So let's see how we can use key framing to add a extra bit of excitement to our tiny plot of video. And you can do this for any Final Cut Pro X video project, as long as any of the parameters have this icon beside it. So let me show you what it actually means. You're probably wondering, Greg, what are you so excited about? Okay, so first of all, let's look at this tiny plotted video. So let's say I want to start off the video like this and then zoom in a bit, right? So you can see 330 is where I want to end up. But I want to start off at 720. So there's more than one way to do this, to add keyframes, but I prefer to do it in the inspector. Okay, so when the project starts off, I wanted to start off at 720 and then end up in 300s. So to do that, we click Add key frame. And then in the timeline, we want to increase that value. So this is already a minute long. Let's change it to 300 over here. Okay, and there we go. So let's play this back. I'm just gonna press L to speed things up. So you can see if we pay attention to the inspector of the field of view, things are changing very quickly and it's gonna go up to the value that I set 300. Okay, so that's a minute. So let's just say we want to speed things up. So what can we do? We can click our icon there to make things a little bit faster. Let's just say four times. Now things look pretty cool. Okay, let's add some music to this by dropping a truck into the timeline. Okay, so there we go. So that's pretty much how we can add keyframes. Now let's continue and we want to add more clips here to the party. So what do we have here? Let's add another clip that's got some movement. Here we go. So we can add this clip over here. Okay, so what is happening here? And we don't the tiny planet effect, let's highlighted and do the same thing. Gonna go to mapping, changed a tiny planets, and suddenly things are looking a lot more interesting. Ok. So what's another option? What's another way we can make it look even cooler? Ok, we have different options here under Orientation. So let's just experiment here. Yeah, we've got pen and we can also do this in the viewer here. But that makes things a bit, can make people but dizzy. So hold down shift if you just want to control one plane so that we can slowly change, are panning as one option. Or we can leave it as it is. Okay? So the same idea would apply if you're going to change the tilt and Pam values. But let's just see, I wanna change the mapping here. I want to start off pretty big. And then I wanna go to a higher value. So 350, I want to start off with at the beginning. So add my key frame. And then at the end, I want to zoom out a bit to 500. So let's play that back to speed things up with L. Great. Okay, and the beauty of this is that we can mix in other footage because this is a regular videos. So let's go back to our cowork space footage from night event. And let's just mix in a few clips just to make things but random. So here we are. Now. I can actually just go back to my rough cut. Remember that project we created? Just save a bit of time. And I can copy some videos from that project and I can skip. Back to the other tiny planet project. Can add a transition over there. Okay. And let's just zoom in a bit. And then let's go back to 360 when a throw people off a little, but they don't know, they don't know what's coming. Kills. Go back to this one. Is plop that in there. Take out the audio. Ok, let's just shorten it a bit. So again, because we have a 360 clip, we need to change the orientation. And furthermore, we want to change the tiny planet. So let's click over there. Change the mapping to tiny planet. Now what looks better? Okay, so let's do another keyframe are going to start off wide and we're going to end up closer. Okay. Great. Okay, let's just fade out. Fade out the music. Okay. I'm going to save a, get a screen grab from this for YouTube. And lastly, let's export this baby. Okay, so we're going to export this file just like a regular video. One video and audio, H.264. Next. And tiny planet via chloride longer. Ok, let's summarize what we did. We added multiple 3-6 eclipse in a regular 4K project. We added regular clips because we are now creating a regular video project. And for these 3-6 Eclipse, we change them over to the tiny map orientation, the tiny map mapping perspective. And we also added the field of view. We changed that using the key frames to make it a bit more dynamics. So if we play it back, you can see that it's changing as it's moving. And then we add some transitions. We mixed up some different footage. We're just having a little bit of fun. This is a pretty random video over here. And if you want to see the results, I'm going to publish this over to my Sheikh voyage YouTube channel over here if you want to take a look at those. So hopefully you can also practice this as well. This is pretty cool. I'm pretty excited about this. This gives you a lot of options to differentiate your videos in 2020 and beyond with Final Cut Pro X and some 3-6 footage. 36. FCPX Transitions: We're going to cover transitions in Final Cut Pro X. So transitions are a great way to transition between one scene to another. It's also a great way to end the video with a fade to block, so that all falls under transitions. So to open up the transition menu, we can look for it at the right side of your Final Cut Pro X interface. And you can see all the transitions that are available in Final Cut Pro X. You can see they even have transitions for 360 videos. They are categorized in different groups. And you can see we've got blurred transitions. We have dissolves, which are probably the most common and popular transitions. To apply these transitions, you can simply click the transition that you want and then place them where you would like in between the two clips. So I place it over there and we can press this bass bar to see how that works. Okay? And we have a number of options when it comes to transitions. We can make it longer. It can also make it shorter. And if we highlight the transition itself, we have a number of options. If we look in the inspector with the transition highlighted, we can change the type of look. We can make it into more of a film look. But to be honest, you won't see too much of a difference if it's a short transition. So let's try something like subtractive. Okay? So you can see that was a slightly different look. You can also change the amount. So you also have some options in the audio configuration that you can adjust in your dissolve. Alright? Something to be aware of is the default transition length. There is a default for the transition duration which you can check if you go over to Final Cut Pro Preferences. And you can just check under editing transition duration, which is one seconds. So you can make that longer or shorter. And this area is also good to be aware of for other things which we can cover later. But for transition duration, audio fade duration, the settings are all set here. Okay? So if you want to apply a transition automatically, let's just say to one side we can move the play head to the end of a clip and we can use Command T. So that's our shortcut. Alright. We can also do the same. If we highlight a clip, we can use Command T. It's going to create a transition on both sides. And in this case it's gonna say there's nine of media to create a transition. So we can select another clip like that one there. So it created a transition on both sides. And you can do this for multiple clips. So we can highlight that. We can highlight this select command T and they would create a set of transitions. Okay, so before we end, I'll, I'll show you some of my favorite transitions. So we've got fades color, which is good for ending a project. We can just make it a bit shorter here. So this is like more of a fade to block. Good for finishing off the project. I'm just going to delete those set of transitions we had there. There we go. So we can make this a bit longer. Let's just say five seconds. So five colon 00 Enter. And we can even change the color from black to white. Alright? And we can hold it longer, or it can undo with command Zed. So there's a number of options you can play with to get more of a custom look. Another one of my favorite transitions for photos is one that you can actually plug in the photos. It's called multi. So we can place this over here. And this transition is looking for a four photos. So to do this one, I'm going to just delete some of these other transitions. So with that transition highlighted, I can now select some photos. So we're gonna use the smart collections to finer photos. And this is probably from a time-lapse. So I'm just going to point some different ones here. And I'm going to click the frame. Okay, click the next one. And the next one. Okay, and then one more. Let's see, we can get a different look. And we can apply. Okay, let's see how it looks. Let's just take away the audio. Alright, and if this is too short, we can change the duration for colon 00 to make it four seconds. Okay, so transitions are very powerful. And just to recap, you can find the transitions here. And the shortcut to apply transitions is Command T. And just remember, you can highlight the transition. You can go to the inspector and configure and customize the transition to how you like it. 37. FCPX 2020 Add Images to FCPX: All right, so this is the beginning of our image section or images section. So to begin, we're going to import some images. And so you can create a new vents and you can go to File Import, File Import media, and try to find a memory card or your hard drive or your images are. So let's just see if I go to harddrive. So I've actually already imported some stills, but I just want to walk you through the process. So let's just say I'm in this folder and I got some jpegs. So JPEGS are good one, you can also import other graphic formats like PNG. So I can highlight one or many. And you can simply just add them to your event or it create a new events. So let's just create a, actually is just added to an existing events, starting to accumulate a lot of events. And you can select, Import selected. And again, a good way to figure out where the stills are or images in your entire library is to expand smart selections in the Media Browser and just select stills. So these are stills in your entire library. Okay? But we want to go to the cowork space event and we can look at our images over here. Okay, so in the next lesson we're going to work with the different images. We're going to learn how we can crop, trim and transform our images in Final Cut Pro X. 38. FCPX 2020 How to install 3rd party plugins: Hello everyone. So we are going to apply some different third party plugins. So sharpening, plugging, we've got titles, we've got different color, Lutz lookup tables, color filters that we can expand and upgrade Final Cut Pro X. So how do we do that? You need to first find the motion Templates folder. So a good way to do that is to go to home under movies. And here we go. I recommend that you set it as a favorite because it's not the easiest to find. So once you're in motion templates, now you can apply different effects. You can see I already got some additional facts. We've got the sharpening plugin which I actually created and cell, if you do need to expand your sharpening capability on Kronecker products, I've got some lookup table upgrades, lesser gray presets, and there's also titles that add additional power. We've got the adjustment layer, which we covered in another lesson, broadcasts safe filter. And now I want to install some additional transitions. So transitions have become sort of the trends in recent years. We're talking maybe 2019 and beyond from social media influencers. So let's cover how we do that. So these files I got from actually another course, it's from in other course, I'll put the link below. Now I actually got these upgrades all in one pack from another course. The final, complete, Final Cut Pro X course for beginners. It's created by Joe and it's a good course. The one thing that I really value from that course is that he's grouped all these awesome transitions, which I can now upgrade my Final Cut Pro X installation with. So if we look in these folders, we can just quickly see that there's a zoom in and zoom out one. And I believe we can just copy all these. Some of them have subfolders, so you may need to actually dig into it. So let's just see here. So I can go down to the sublevel folder. I can copy and paste. All right, let's just say a popular one is the zoom transition. So if I copy these folders here, we should have these transitions. And there's also some for titles. So I can stick those in the titles folder. Pretty exciting, right? We can write upgrading our Final Cut Pro X. And there's some transitions in here. Ok. So I recommend that you get these upgrades from trusted sources to avoid any glitches. And again, I've got one for sharpening over there, which I did cover on install, but I think we've got a good start here. I'll just add one more here, the paint transition. Alright, and I recommend that you have loops. So make sure to paste these upgrades in the appropriate folders. So again, you've got compositions, you've got affects, got tunnels and transitions. And make sure your Final Cut Pro X is close while you're doing the installation here. So let's open up our Final Cut Pro X. And let's take a look at some of these upgrades that we have here. Alright, so let's see, we've got our affects open. And let's go to transitions because we installed some new transitions. Now if you don't see them, you can either search for them. I remember one called RGB and there it is. Or maybe it's sitting under custom. So I can actually apply this zoom in effect. Ok, let's play this back. And there it is. Looks pretty cool. So we have some ability to adjust the transition while the transition is highlighted. Here we go. And what else did we add? We added some additional adjustment layers. So I've already illustrated how we can use an Adjustment Layer from color Gates Central, but this is from another source. And let's just give it a quick try here. Let's just apply and effects. Let's go over to effects. Let's apply this comic book cool adjustment layer over these two clips. And we can see that it works. Very cool. Yeah, so the adjustment layer works. And we've got a whole set of new transitions we can try. Let's just try one more transition. I remember that we added a paint transition. And remember you can go to Custom if we can't find the transitions. So let's just quickly add the transition here. Fast pan down so he can, we can preview this by just mousing over. So let's try the fast pan down. So we're gonna go from this scene on the bike over to the cowork space. There we go. Very cool. Very, very cool. Ok, so that's how we can install third-party upgrades for transitions, titles, or what not to give your video a more updated custom look. 39. FCPX 2020 introduction to effects: What's up, everyone? Great Kang here. And we're going to talk about effects in Final Cut Pro X. So in general, effects are way you can impact your video footage. You can do things like blurred out. You can create custom lugs, comic book looks. You can deal with green screens. This is all contained in the effects area. And I've got specific lessons that will deep dive into these different areas, but I just wanted to give you a general introduction to the effects. So to open the effects, you can go over to just above the timeline and click on that area. There are effects for video, there are effects for audio. You can get a bit confusing to figure out all these effects. So you've got these areas on the left-hand side that will allow you to filter for a particular type of effects. If you know the name of the effect, you can use the search bar here to find it. I covered a installation of a third party plugin effect for the lookup table utility, also for my sharpening plug-in. And I'll cover some practical examples, but you can deep dive into the specific lessons for how you use that, use those effects. So you also need to be aware that there are specific effects for 360. There are also different types of color effects. Some of the most practical effects, in my opinion, are the broadcast safe effect, which will make sure that your video footage is within broadcasts the standards, so it's not overexposed, underexposed and that the colors are not too saturated. And those are good practical effects for corporate types of videos. And there are comic book types of effects that will give it a nice cool look, which we'll also dive into. And the way that we apply effect is quite simple. Let's go over to this clip here. You can simply just find the effect that you want. Let's just say I'm looking for my sharpening effect. So if you do apply third-party effects, they will be in a customary of. So this is a affect, a third party effect that I actually created. So simply drag that over. And from here you've got options to sharpen the footage. Let's just turn off this hue saturation curves so they can sharpen the footage. Given a very custom look, you can see what it looks like. Without the effect. Quite a noticeable difference. So just know that for different effects, we can make adjustments with that effect in the inspector. Let's just close off this RGB parade. So we have more real estate. So you're Command inspector is opened up with command for. And you can see all the different ways we can customize the sharpening effect. Let's just say I wanted to use a comic book Mano effect. All right, so we've got to more of a black and white look. Now it looks like a comic book character. And we, you see, we still have the sharpening effect. And now we've got this other Calling book effect that allows us to customize it. If you ever mouseover beside one of these different attributes and you see this diamond plus, that means we can keyframe. That means as we play along the video clip, we can further customize the look. And as you see the project, as we move on, you'll see that we can use key framing to our advantage too, and make adjustments to that particular attribute. Let's just say it's the sharpness. I can apply different amount or sharpness as the clip moves on using keyframes. And you'll see us do that on a particular different lesson. So we also have different color filters or lookup tables. These are also under effects. So if I want to take off this comic book look, and I wanted to apply a cross process color filter that is also under the effects. So that is just a introduction to color effects. So be aware, you can make adjustments to the attributes. You can make use of keyframes to customize the effect. And you can also install third-party plug-ins, which we cover in another lesson. Now, let's cover some specific effects. 40. FCPX 2020 more on effects: Now I have two clips over here. One is overlaid on top of each other just to illustrate some different fundamental techniques I think you should be aware of. You'll need to have the Command inspector opens. So command for and will need to be on this view. So let's take a look. We'll go from top to bottom. All right, compositing. So I think one of the most fundamental techniques is to beware of opacity. So that's how see-through you wanna make a clip. So if we change the opacity 0 clip on the bottom is showing, if you can do it halfway, you can see half of the clip. And we've got blend mode here, which I don't use too much, but you can experiment, create some really interesting customer effects. And Color Dodge is one that I've experimented with before, sort of mixes the two different clips overlaid. So that's something you should be aware of. For most of the time I just use normal. And sometimes I'll play around with the capacity. The capacity does have a keyframe. So you can experiment with that transform covered in the cropping area. But just briefly, I mean, you can highlight a clip over here. You can move it. If you're working with 4K footage in an HD project. Very important to be aware that you can scale, especially if you're in an HD project. So let's just create a new project here. And 14 HD. And these drone clips are all 4K. So let's just put this 4K clip here. So you can see we've got quite a bit of real estate because this is a 4K clip highlighted. Yep, so it's 4K. So if you've got some extra real estate so we can play around with Keyframing. And remember you can always reset. It's anytime there's a diamond here. Stabilization, it's important for shaky clips that you can highlight it and select stabilize. I've got a project over here. I'm jumping around a bit, but let's just say you're shot a clip handheld and you want to stabilize it. You can highlight it and select stabilization. It's gonna take a while, but it actually does a pretty good job of stabilizing the clip. And if it finds that the algorithm can simulate the clipping on tripod mode, you will be able to check that box and make it stable as a tripod. You can see that I'm opening up the background tasks. You can see what Final Cut Pro X is doing. It's analyzing if we can make this as stable as the tripod. If it can't, it's going to make it a bit more stable server I can gimble, but you need to play back to see how well of a job is actually doing. So it's done now. And we cannot check that. But it is check stabilization method is automatic so we can play it back. There are some other options. Alright. So that's our stabilization. Let's go back to the drone clip. Let's go to the effects. So let's just go back to the opacity 100. At most, your want to apply some different looks. This is a comic book look over here. You can see this makes a big difference, big difference. We can also use these third party plugins, right, to really create a customer. There's just so much to cover, we can't possibly cover them all. So I recommend you take a look through those separate lessons. Green screen is definitely practical lesson to cover, especially if you're going to be doing some green screen work and you want some custom backgrounds. And definitely look into the third party plugins with the effects. 41. FCPX 2020 TRIM AND CROP KEN BURNS: In this lesson, we're gonna learn how we can trim and crop our images in Final Cut Pro X. Let's create a new project from this still to begin. Let's call it the image lesson. Okay, we have a simple image in here. So with the still highlighted, we can do things like zoom in, we can scale. And we can always just remember undue by going Command Z. Or we can undo right over there. We also have our key frames if we want to add different plot points. So let's just say we want to play it back. But now we want to start zooming in at this point here. We can do that. So if we put her play had further at the beginning, we play this long, can see how we can create a zoom effect with an image. Okay, so let's figure out how do we do some other effects. So let's take that off. Just undo. So now we have a blank canvas. You have a blank image. What else can we do? We can transform it. So we click this icon here, which is our transform. And we have a number options here. We can hold down the Shift and use the handles to manipulate our images any number of ways. And we can always use Control Center go back. So just remember, hitting transform gives us these handles here to transform our image. We can also go over the crop. Crop, gives us some other options here. So once we select crop, we can see trim, crop and Ken Burns. So let's start off with trim. So trim allows us to change the outside borders of our image. So say we just want the laptop and they're going to grab these handles. And you can see that what's happening in the inspector, as z is these values are changing and the type has changed to trim. This is just an easier way of doing it in the viewer. Okay, and then we can click this icon to complete the trim. And you can see we got this blackboard or now, which isn't that eye pleasing. So let's just undo this. And we can just uncheck crop, because at the end of the day, these are all crops. Okay, let's hit the Crop button again. Okay, and let's just start fresh. Fresh image share. Spring down another one. Okay, so we've got our crop pilot now are actually gonna do a crop. The crop allows us to select the portion that we want, 71 that portion. But we can also move this frame that we've drawn around. And let's just say we don't want that plastic bag in there and we want to resize iframe. And now we're done our crop. So we're going to click the icon there. And it makes a nice crop and it fills out the rest of the frame so that we don't have those black border. So that's the main difference between trim and crop. Let's just go back. So we can hit undo or we can uncheck crop right there. Okay, let's work with the Ken Burns effect. So Ken Burns is a nice way to add some movement here images. And you can do this for more than one image. So to demonstrate, we're going to add a few more images. So Command, click command to select more than one. So let's say we played this back in our project. That's like a slideshow, but it's a bit boring. So what we can do is again, highlight all of these. We can select our crop icon and we can select Ken Burns. Ken Burns as probably a name of a person that created this type of cropping movement. I'm not exactly sure. But anyway, it's just know that it adds some movements. And the way that it works is you see your start point with the green frame and you see the endpoint with this red frame. So it's going to start off from a broad frame and then it's gonna move in inwards a bit and become a bit of a smaller frame. So if we select Done, This is going to add some movement. Well, should have. Yeah. So we've added some movements over to that image. So we applied the Ken Burns effect to that image. Let's just say we want to apply that same Ken Burns on a mission to this club. We can select copy from the image with Ken Burns effect. And we can edit, paste attributes and select cropped and pace. And now we've got Ken Burns applied to all these images. Okay, so we can remove that Ken Burns effect. We can reset it. Let's just say we wanted a different movement. And let's say we want to change the movement here. Okay? If we want to change our movement, simply can't buy changing our starts. Let's just say we wanted to start from the top of that bag, and then we wanted to just really focus in on this laptop so we can select Done. And now it goes from the top all the way to the bottom. Now if we wanted to apply this to all the images we can copy that, highlight the other images, select, edit, paste attributes, and make for crop is checked paste. And now we've got that same Ken Burns effect applied to the rest of the images. So that's how we can adjust some of the images we trimmed, we cropped and we applied the Ken Burns effect. And we also played around with the different scale. 42. FCPX 2020 TRIM AND CROP: This lesson we're gonna learn how we can trim and crop our images in Final Cut Pro X. Let's create a new project from this still to begin. Let's call it the image lesson. Okay, and we have a simple image in here. So with the still highlighted, we can do things like zoom in, we can scale. And we can always just remember undue by going Command Z. Or we can undo right over there. We also have our keyframes if we want to add different plot points. So let's just say we want to play it back. But now we want to start zooming in at this point here. We can do that. So we better play head further. At the beginning we play this long, can see how we can create a zoom effect with an image. Okay, so let's figure out how do we do some other effects. So let's take that off. Just undo. So now we have a blank canvas, we have a blank image. What else can we do? We can transform it. So we click this icon here, which is our transform. And we have a number options here. We can hold down the Shift and use the handles to manipulator images any number of ways. And we can always use Control Center go back. So just remember, hitting transform gives us these handles here too. Transform our image. We can also go over the crop. Cropped gives us some other options here. So once we select crop, we can see trim, crop and Ken Burns. So let's start off with trim. So trim allows us to change the outside borders of our image. Just say we just want the laptop and they're going to grab these handles. And you can see that what's happening in the inspector, these values are changing and the type has changed to trim. This is just an easier way of doing it in the viewer. Okay, and then we can click this icon to complete the trim. And you can see we've got this blackboard or now, which isn't that eye pleasing. So let's just undo this. And we can just uncheck crop, because at the end of the day these are all crops. Ok, let's hit the Crop button again. Okay, and let's just start fresh. Fresh image share. Spring down another one. Okay, so we've got our crop pilot now are actually gonna do a crop. The crop allows us to select the portion that we want. Let's just set v one dot portion. But we can also move this frame that we've drawn around. And let's just say we don't want that plastic bag in there and we want to resize iframe. And now we're done our crop. So we're going to click the icon there. And it makes a nice crop and it fills out the rest of the frame so that we don't have those black border. So that's the main difference between trim and crop. Let's just go back. So we can hit undo or we can uncheck crop right there. Okay, let's work with the Ken Burns effect. So Ken Burns is a nice way to add some movement here images. And you can do this for more than one image. So to demonstrate, we're going to add a few more images. So command, click command to select more than one. So let's say we played this back in our project. That's like a slideshow, but it's a bit or a. So what we can do is again, to highlight all of these. We can select our crop icon and we can select Ken Burns. Ken Burns as probably a name of a person that created this type of cropping movement. I'm not exactly sure. But anyway, it's just know that it adds some movements. And the way that it works is you see your start point with the green frame and you see the endpoint with this red frame. So it's going to start off from a broad frame and then it's gonna move in inwards a bit and become a bit of a smaller frame. So if we select done. So, we applied the Ken Burns effect to that image. Let's just say we want to apply that same Ken Burns on emission to this club. We can select copy from the image with Ken Burns effect. And we can edit, paste attributes and select cropped and pace. And now we've got Ken Burns applied to all these images. Okay, so we can remove that Ken Burns effect. We can reset it. Let's just say we wanted a different movement. Ok, if we want to change our movement, simply can by changing r starts, let's just say we wanted to start from the top of that bag, and then we wanted to just really focus in on this laptop so we can select Don. And now it goes from the top all the way to the bottom. Now if we wanted to apply this to all the images we can copy that, highlight the other images, select edit attributes, and makes for a crop is checked paste. And now we've got that same Ken Burns effect applied to the rest of the images. So that's how we can adjust some of the images we trimmed, we cropped and we applied the Ken Burns effect. And we also played around with the different scale. 43. FCPX 2020 screen grab and image sequence: This lesson we're going to learn how to do a screen grab and also export an image sequence. So why we wanna do this is to say we want to get some thumbnails for YouTube, or to get some stills from the video that we didn't have chance to take photos. So the good thing about doing this from Final Cut is that it will take the same resolution from the videos. So to say, a full HD video clip is going to get us a 1920 by 1080 photo that is good for YouTube, but for most things on the web. Okay, so before we do that, I just want to sharpen up this image a bit. It's a little bit. How did we say needs some sharpening? So I'm gonna use the sharpening plugin add on. This is one of my plugins here. I'm just going to apply this effect here just to sharpen it up a bit. Just the intensity, just the amount k. Alright, so if we want to grab a still from the video, we can highlight this. We can hit the share button. And you may be wondering where is it so we can add it as a destination for some reason it wasn't there. So we can add save current frame. We also want to try out image sequence. Okay, so let's double-click those. So those are now destinations. Okay, so let's simply just got a screen grab. So it's going to take a screen grab of where the play heads is. And we can just select the format looks just like a JPEG. Select next, and then choose where you want to save it. Now, the image sequence is going to grab images throughout the video. I'll quickly save this 1 first. K, select save. Ok, so this is the movement for a 1.5 minute clip. So let's just say we wanna save the image sequence. So this is going to take a series of photos from this video. Like next, choose where we want to save it. Just going to create a folder and save. Alright, let's see that screen grab. Okay, there it is. And there's the image sequence folder I created. You should be able to see the screen grabs being created. Out of that video. You can see them being created in real time. So look how many it's created here. Pretty much every frame in the video. So this can be useful if you want some usable stills from your video to use for social media or thumbnail. Yeah, so that is how we can do a screen grab and get a image sequence from a video clip. 44. FCPX 2020 Introduction to Color: Hi everyone, so great Kang here we're going to import some drone footage. Drone footage is still very important for both corporate projects as well, even more so for social media projects. And so I'm going to supply you with some drove footage at may not be exactly as you see here. But nevertheless, let's go ahead and import some footage. Now. I've got some drone footage shot from Chiang Mai here. I do want this one aerial video, Lake curated. See you next. Ok. So this is shot at my friend's beautiful ranch in Chiang Mai. And let's put it in the drone events. So we're going to select Import. And boom, there we go. So drone footage shot in 4K is pretty much the same as any other project. And we will cover later how we can apply some different color grading to the drone clips. What's up, everyone? So this is an introduction to color Greening in Final Cut products. So why do we wanna do color grading? While in 20-20, there are several different types of cameras like drones, mirrorless cameras that have the ability to shoot in what we call a flat color profile. So on my maverick air all my passage H5, I choose to film in a flat color profile so that I have more opportunity, more room to work with when it comes to editing and color grading in Final Cut Pro X. So let's choose a clip here and let's see what we can do with that. So I chose these drone close because I think it could be improved. The color coming straight out of the maverick air is, isn't as good as I think it could be. Alright, so let's create a new project. And we'll just leave everything as is. Alright, the first thing I want to illustrate is that we can quickly access the area to color with command six. If you don't see that, you can click on this icon here in the inspector. You will need command for to have the Inspector open. I always recommend to have the Inspector open. And you can highlight the clip. And you can also open your effects and you can drag the color board onto the clip. Okay? Now we can have more than one color board on a clip. But just to keep things simple for now, let's go into the color board. So color board has three main categories. We've got color, saturation and exposure. And we've got what we call the master control, which controls pretty much everything. And wherever you bring this over, it's going to bring that complete shade of color to the entire project. Now, if you look down here, you can see the percentage that supply, you can always Control. Command Z to undo or just hit the Undo button here. Alright, so we can do the same with the shadows, and we can also do the same with the highlights. Alright? So we've also got saturation, which is more on the actual color. So I can just dial up a master control 100%. We want a lot of color, right? Or we can just float in and out to make it appear black and white. Vol Scott exposure, which is more about the brightness and the shadows. Yeah, so this is very basic color grading. And so this is the color board. And we've got other areas that we can colour grade our project, starting with photocopy Pro X 10.4 and above. So we have what we call the color wheels. We also have the color curves, and we have the hue saturation curves, right? And like I mentioned before, we can have more than one color board. And if we go over to our facts, we can see, oh my gosh, we've got all these different color grades applied so we can either uncheck them or we can delete them just to clean things up a little bit. So let's delete them and start off fresh. So again, just to recap, we've got the color board. We've covered different ways we can access the color board and we've covered that we can apply more than one color board. We've also got what we call a shape mask. And with the shape mass, we can apply color to a certain area of our picture like that. I will cover that more in a separate lesson. And we've got the other ways of coloring. Color wheels, color curves, hue saturation curves, all new with version 10.4 and above. So we'll dive into these different ways of coloring in the next lesson. 45. FCPX 2020 Color & shape masks: In this lesson, we're gonna learn how we can use shape mass to color specific areas using shape or an eye dropper. So to begin, we need to apply a color board. So you can drag the color board over or you can click this button over here. So let's just apply the colour board. And you can immediately see we have an icon over here that says add color mosque or eight, Add Shape, MA. So we've got the eye dropper mass. And so with it highlighted, we can focus on particular areas that are of similar color. So we've highlighted the tree. So if you select View mass, this is the area that is in focus. So new to Final Cut Pro X 10.4 and above. We covered that in the New section. Which specific version is the ability to use what we call a HSL color shape mass. So this allows you to independently change the colors of a mask for the hue saturation and the luma, we can uncheck different values there. We have the ability to adjust the entire slider. Or we can click any of these pins over here to make more micro adjustments. I haven't had a lot of time to play with this. This is a new feature, but this is just a broad overview of the eyedropper color mass in Final Cut Pro X. So now let's cover the other type of mask. Lets apply the colour board. Okay, so the other mass we have is a shape mask. So let's select a different clip that has a little bit easier to bring shaped mask over. So let's bring this clip over to the timeline. And there we go. So we can click our color board over it. Click a shape mask, and we get this circular target over here. We can move this over and we have the ability to resize it. You can see that it's pretty circular, so that's a bit limiting. So we can actually adjust this to more of a square shape using the white circle if we click and drag it over, okay, and then we can use the green ones to resize it. Just say we want to get it over to that gorilla there. And we want to view the mask. Alright, so the mask is over there. And now we can make some color adjustments to that gorilla. And that is the shape mask in Final Cut Pro X. Just a good way to isolate a particular area and target a color using a shape. 46. FCPX 2020 COLOR CURVES: Gray column here and we're going to cover the color curves. So to set this up, I've got a clip that has some blue in it because we are able to control the red, green, and blue with the color curves. Saturation is not being able to control here. To do that, you would go over to the color wheels or the color board, which you can go over to over here. We have particular Saturation controls, but we're going to focus on the color curves. To do that, I've got my RGB parade on. So make sure you've got video scopes open. And you can click on this icon over here to make sure the RG ii parade is highlighted. So this is our red, green, and blue. And ideally we want to keep the values within 100 to 0. Ok? So just to start off with, I'm just going to apply broadcast safe, which is going to try to put everything within 0 to a 100. So that's a nice first step to do. Okay, so to adjust our exposure to make it brighter, or we can click and drag it to the left. Or we can even explore different areas, right? So that's going to make it really bright. That's gonna make, make it a bit darker. Okay, F1, to create bigger shadows, we can drag the bottom point, drag it over there. And if we make, if we go overboard, we can always go back to our safe place. So let's just say we want to add some shadows there. We want to make it brighter. We can drag it there. Or we can even drag down the exposure, but okay, so next we've got our red so we can increase our read by dragging it over there. But that's too much. Maybe I wanted with focus on the red, but the idea is that you can adjust your red values there. We can decrease it there. Same with the green. So because we do have some green, we can increase it by dragging over here. But we see that that's impacting everything. So let's go back. Ok, so we can increase the blue area. You can see this is making a big impact to the image because there is a lot of blue. One more thing I wanted to point out is that you can change the colors here to focus on. Let's just say we wanted to focus on the orange. We can do that. And we can also change the values for that image. Okay, so we can go back there and there is an eyedropper here if you want to focus on a particular colour. So that's just a basic overview of the colored curves. Remember, you cannot specifically adjust the saturation over here. You would need to do that in the color wheels or the color board. So if we go over to the color wheels, we can see that we can quickly dial up the saturation very quickly over there. So just another arsenal in your color grading toolbox. 47. FCPX 2020 Draw Mask Effect: All right, we're going to cover the draw mass tools as we were talking about different types of mass, the carpet, the shape mass, the color mask, and now the draw mask. So to set this up, you need two different types of clips. So we've got a drone clip here with horizon, and we just got a clip of some object here. So you can use any of the project files to practice this and set things up. What we need to do is find the draw mask. It's under the effects, and we can apply it to the top clip. So set this up, we need to start plotting the points. So I'm just going to click here. And if you make a mistake, you can Command Z to undo. So this is going to be a really rough cut. And finish it over here. Over there. Alright. So you can see a little bit the monkey. And there's some different options here. We can chains change the opacity. We can invert things, and we can even feather to make the impact less obvious. So v, click over here, let's just click off of this. So there's a lot of potential here. If you want to use a draw mass, maybe you can have a time lapse in the background and you can have it on the horizon. And again, the draw mask is under the effects and apply it on the top layer, the top clip and have another clip underneath. And yeah, play around with it and see what you can create. 48. FCPX 2020 how to use an adjustment layer for applying effects and color 3rd party: Everyone, great Kang here. And a lot of the power, as I mentioned before, is in the additional third party plug-ins. And I am going to cover how we can install those. You can get new types of titles, you can get new transitions. You can get lookup tables or color filters that you can add to Final Cut Pro X. Now, one of the popular features, actually practical features that's still not included with Final Cut Pro X as of May 2020 is what we call an adjustment layer. And you can get these through third party sites. I got mine from a third party site called Color Grading Central. And you can also create your own. There are sites that teach you how to do this. If you go to Larry Jordan, he goes step-by-step. If you have motion, you can create your own Adjustment Layer preset, or there's people even selling them. But if you do have motion, you can just create this yourself. Or if you just go to Brian angle, here's a site here. It looks like it's a free download. And the reason why we want to use an adjustment layer is that it allows you to apply and object over all the other layers to avoid doing that one by one or just by pacing, specific types of adjustments like color grading to multiple clips. So let's dive into more of how the adjustment layer works. Alright, so we have an adjustment layer here that's installed under Titles. And I have a project in the timeline that's ready to be complete, but I haven't finished color grading in yet. So I could do this one by one. But this adjustment layer fits on top of all the different layers in the timeline. If we look at the inspector, we can see this adjustment layer is the same resolution as my project. It's ultra HD 4K. And what I can do is apply a color filter or any type of effect, any type of effect. And it will just apply to anywhere that this adjustment layer is covering throughout the project. That's why it's so powerful. Let's just close this 360 viewers so it can see larger view. There we go. And if we play it, you'll see the part where the Adjustment Layer doesn't apply. That's why Adjustment layer so powerful, you can even apply multiple adjustment layers. Let's just say you wanted to apply another fact we wanted apply epic color filter. So we can play along the timeline. You can see the adjustment layer in the timeline. There's nothing here, so I'm just gonna go to normal. And then the adjustment layer is going to apply to this clip right here. So if we highlight the adjustment layer, we can see all the effects that are applied to it. And there's a lot we can do here. So we can even apply multiple effects. So let's do something like comic book look, let's apply that to Adjustment Layer. Look at that common Cool. So I've got a comic version all myself applied to the entire project, which is pretty cool. So we can reduce adjustment layer so it goes from normal, which looks pretty cool. Irony were tiny planet. And then we've got more of a comic book effect. And we can even adjust this even more. We can use the key framing to give a very cool effect. So I hope that shows you just the tip of the iceberg that adjustment layers have for customizing the look to multiple projects, tune entire project. And remember that you need to install it from a third party we've covered where you can get that. Or if you have motion, you can go to a site and follow the steps to create your own adjustment layer for free. 49. FCPX 2020 How to White Balance: In this video, we're going to cover how can we white balance in Final Cut Pro X. Let's just say you took a clip and the color tendentious looks a bit off. I mean, it's always better when you do it in production, but sometimes we don't have that opportunity. So over here is an example of a clip that needs to be corrected for the white balance. So with the clip highlighted, and you can use this practice footage, you can select balanced colour. Okay, you can immediately see that there has been some, some improvement. And if we go over to the inspector, you don't see it. Press command for. We can select white balance and make sure that the eye dropper is highlighted. And then just try to click on a white area that isn't overexposed. And you can see there we have a white bounds video clip. Let's just uncheck this to see what it looks like. So you can definitely tell there is a difference there, especially on the background. The one without the white balancing looks a little bit off. But we've got more realistic colors in the flush and the wall when we've done or white balancing. Let's just do another clip here. Okay, so we're going to repeat the process like balanced colour. And we need to change the method in the inspector under the bounce color area to white balance. We're going to make sure the eye dropper is highlighted. And click an area that is white that isn't overexposed. And there we go. So that's without the white balancing. And that is with the balancing. Of course, you can't just white balance in isolation. You also have to do things like making sure the clip isn't overexposed, which it may be a little bit just taking a quick glance at it. You can do a broadcast safe filter. It's to fix things up a little bit. We can open up the video scopes are luma scope and we can make some adjustments in color wheel. But we won't get too carried away. Yeah, let's take a look at our clip now. So let's take off the balance color. So I can see quite a significant difference for just uncheck this and check that. So that's how we can white balance in Final Cut Pro X. 50. FCPX 2020 Hue Saturation Curves: This is an introduction to the hue saturation curves. Now we've covered a lot of different ways of color grading. For example, we've covered the color board, color wheels, color curves, and this is the hue saturation curves. Now there's a lot we can do in here and I'm just going to be scratching on the basics. And now I have another lesson where I also demonstrate how we can change the color of the shirt. Here I'm just going to show you some of the power that this option has if you want to experiment. So to start off, we're going to focus on the hue versus saturation area. And just for people that are not familiar with Whew, it's just another jargon name for color shade. Saturation is for more of the warm for the color or the amount of color that is displayed. Okay, so we can use the eye dropper tool in the hue versus saturation. And we can just click on my red shirt to create some control points. So you can see we have a control point here and we can use that to make adjustments. So you can see that this saturates entire picture. And if we drag this down, we can see we keep the color in my shirt. But now at blocks everything out. So that's a pretty cool effect. So if we, again, so if we click my shirt with the eye dropper, you can see we have a control point there. So we can see if we drag it up, this is saturating everything. If we drag it down, you can see that it's creating a black and white for everything. But my shirt, which is pretty cool. If we drag it more, were there, the effect is a nice pronounced. That's a nice cool fact that we can apply and we're just scratching the surface with the hue saturation curves. I'm going to show you two areas that we can use to make practical adjustments. So let's just say we want to increase the saturation. In the blue shirt. We can click on the eye dropper, just click on the blue shirt to add some control points. And you can see here we have some control points. Now I can drag this control point up to increase the saturation in the shirt or decrease it. And I went to increase it. And the cool thing about this is that because we're using the eye dropper, we can isolate this just to the shirt. Now if you want to make a color shade adjustment, we can click the eye dropper in the hue versus Hugh. We can click in the shirt. And you can see we have control points here. And now I can move this up and we've completely changed the color of Byron shirt from blue to green and drag it down. We can change the pink so you can experiment here. And this is a pretty fun tool. If you want to change the color of the shirt, someone's clothing. And you can add additional control points here if you want to experiment with some different colors. And you can see there that we're going outside of the shirt over there. And we can just back out of our changes. So that's just a simple overview of the hue saturation curves. 51. FCPX 2020 installing a lut, Keyframing to multiple clips: A big part of the power of Final Cut Pro X, once you've mastered the fundamentals, is to now look to third-party upgrades to your final cut pro X, you can add things like additional titles, additional lookup tables which are ways to apply filters like Instagram style to give you rich color profiles that really add a whole new dimension to your footage. You can even add new transitions, which in 2020 and beyond are become very popular with YouTube used to create a new style of dynamic videos that unfortunately monocot products doesn't include everything. So in this video, we're going to cover how we can install a third party color upgrade, which is called a look-up table. And a lot of cameras these days, especially the more professional ones, like the past Satoshi x5 mirrorless camera, a Canon SLRs. It's, there's been a trend to film in a flat color profile. You may have heard of color profiles like Sydney, like d or flog. These flat profiles are available in cameras like drones to film in a flatter profile to give you more room to work with in post-production. And something that you can do is apply a look-up table. And I've purchased one in the past from a website called Color Grading central. And now I'm going to download and install that utility and show you how I can use that to apply to my footage. And so first thing we need to do is I've purchased this already. I've got the files to install. So I'm just going to double-click and go ahead and install it. And again, if you want to buy these plug-ins, this lookup table, you can go to color, grading central.com, luck utility. And they're not paying me to promote this tool is just the tool that I use. And the next thing we need to do is to apply it. These are just the installation instructions, right? K. So I'm just following the instructions here. Remember to have your Mac password handy in case it asks you for the password. Right? So we've installed the luck utility and we need to restart Final Cut Pro X. Ok. And it's just saying if watermark red dots remain, Be sure to delete all the renderer files by highlighting the project in the browser. And file delete generated and Event files. Okay, those are very specific instructions. I'm just going to take a photo of that. So we need to restart Final Cut Pro X. Let's go ahead and close this. Alright, and so we're going to close our photocopier Pro X and we're going to reopen it. Okay, so now that it's open, I can see the lot utility here. So I'm going to try it out on some footage shot in a what we call a flat color profile. I'm gonna find a clip here and simply apply it. And in the effects area, we now have an option to apply the lookup table. So I've got an option here to choose a color profile that closely matches my camera. And I use a Panasonic change five, so I'm going to select that. And now I've got the option to select the percentage, the mix that I want to apply. And here's a key frame so I can even change how the supplies from the beginning to the end. I'll show you what I mean. Let's just go to another clip that's a bit more flat. So this clip is pretty flat. So let's apply this lookup table. Alright, and let's select the camera. Well, let's select the profile and the camera that I used. You can see it's quite intense there. But let's leave that on. I want to show you how we can use the keyframe to change the look here. Okay, so I gotta go to the beginning of the clip in the timeline. And what I'm gonna do is dial this down and add a key frame. And then I'm gonna go to the end and then really dial it up to 100%. Okay, so if we play this back, let me just turn off the music here. Let's oops, sorry about that. Let's just disable this. Okay, so let's play the clip. And you can see it's going from 6% all the way to 100. Okay, so that's a nice way to keyframe and change the colors at the same time. Alright, so that's just a brief look at a third party lookup table utility. And there are other third-party Color packs that you can get to customize the look if you don't want to spend too much time yourself on color grading. Now remember, even though we applied these third-party plug-ins, we can still go to the color board and make additional corrections. We can add our color board and highlight that clip. And we can further customize this look. I can uncheck this. And we can have multiple color boards. And there's a lot of different ways to color grade in Final Cut Pro X. Here's another example of a third party color filter. This is not so much a lookup table, but this is more of a filter like an Instagram style filter. I purchased this one from luster grade presets, and it came with a pack of three. And so I can simply just drag an effect onto the clip. And I have an instance type of look. The great thing about this is that I can go over to the inspector and I can dial down the effect. As you can see, multiple color profiles. I've got the lookup table. I've got this third party plugin. So I can uncheck this. And I can then check, uncheck the lookup table and you can see the difference that it makes to your footage. Alright, so this is a little bit more advanced. And as you can see, I've got more than one clip here. And of course we can copy the color settings that we have by using command C or going over here edit command and I can pace the attributes. So I don't have to repeat that whole process again. Alright, so I have pasted the color attributes to the second clip. But you can see we've got so many clubs and there is a better way. And it's called an Adjustment Layer and we'll cover that in the next lesson. Adjustment Layer is an efficient way to apply multiple effects to an entire project. 52. FCPX 2020 Using color wheels to color grade & correct exposure: Okay, we are going to cover the color wheel and specifically how we can use it to adjust the exposure. Now there's another lesson that will go into the color wheel in more depth. But for practical use, I use the color wheel to adjust my exposure. So you can pick any other practice files that look a little bit too bright, or it can find this one in the practice footage. And to begin, we're going to just bring the color board over or we can go to the inspector and we can select the color wheel. Alright, so this is going to be a quick overview of the color wheel. And then we're going to go into how we can correct the exposure. That exposure is to do with the brightness and the shadows. Okay, so with our color wheels, we can see that we've got a circle on each of the ends. We can drag it around. We've got the same options that we do have in the color board. Master shadows highlights a mid tones. So we can drag this over to get a particular different shade. We can do that with highlights as well. But just to keep it simple, you know, you can just, if you wanted to change the color shade using the color wheels or the master is the best way you can just click the circle, drag it over. So if you want to adjust, exposure may come brighter, can do it in the Master, or you can just drag it down to make it a lot darker. So similar idea on the right-hand side of this shadows highlights a mid tones. We can make those adjustments. And just remember there's a arrow at the bottom right to allow us to undo that. Okay. So you may be confused. Why can I all the same things for shadows, highlights some midtone. Well, it's just to zone into hone in to do those things for highlights, foreshadows. So just to keep things simple, you can focus on the master. Okay, so that's the color wheels. And yes, we can apply multiple color wheels. And now we're going to focus on how do we adjust the exposure. Okay, so to do that, let's open up our video scopes. This is something that's a little bit more advance. So here's want to keep things simple. You can just, you know, just, simply just bringing that dial down, right? That'll make things a lot simpler. Notice that we don't have the specific values that we do on the color boards. So if we go to the color board, let's just go over to the color board. The color board gives us the specific percentages. So each of these ways of color grading has their strengths, their pros and cons. Okay, let's go back to the color wheels. Alright, now I'm going to open the video scopes. So this is the luma video scope. There are different colors scopes that we can open. So this in particular focuses on how bright particular clip is. Okay? So we've got the waveform luma. Alright? So a good starting point is to use broadcast safe. So this puts it in broadcast standards. It'll put the values, exposure values in between 0. The highlights should be under a 100, Shadow should be over 0. I have more in-depth sessions on this if you're interested. So we applied the broadcast safe, and that's a good first pass. And then we've got the ability to just the highlights. So if we wanted to bring it over, we could do that with a needle over here. So I can bring down the highlights just a bit. And the shadows, you can see they're above 0, so I can bring that down. And the mid tones. Yeah, it's just a bit over there. Okay. So that's just a quick adjustment to the exposure. And if we take that off, and we can see that adjustment over there. So it's pretty minor. If we wanted to make something more noticeable, we could make more of an adjustment. Okay, so that's an introduction to the color wheels. And just remember that you can see more values in the color board, but the color wheels are nice for adjusting the exposure. And we can check it on, check it off. Alright, so we're going to cover the other area that you can color grade next, and that's called color curves. 53. FCPX 2020 Color Grading Summary: Okay, we have completed the color grading section. As you can see, there are so many different ways you can color grade your footage. And now we're even going to go even deeper where we're going to look at third party plugins which you can use to apply things like lookup tables, which is a way of applying a color profile to an entire image. And to do that, you need to purchase plug-ins from other websites and you need to install them. So we'll cover how you can do that. Now for those of you who just want to keep things simple, just know that there are different ways you can color like the hue saturation curves or the color board. And that if you're looking at entire project like we are in the timeline, it can be a little bit impractical to spend so much time on every single videoclip, color grading every single video clip. And that's where something like the adjustment layer really comes in handy because you can ply, you know, if you just want to apply a little bit saturation to an entire project or expose it, then you can apply the adjustment layer to an entire project. I'll just quickly show you how you can do that. So definitely check out the lesson on the adjustment layer. But the Adjustment Layer will allow you to just make a simple adjustment. Let's just say you wanted to make a broadcast safe effect just as a first pass to the eclipse that are covered. We can do that. And let's just say you wanted to increase the saturation for the project overall, we could just bump it up 15%. And yeah, that's a good way to keep it simple. We've added a little bit of saturation. We applied a broadcast effect and we applied it to multiple clips. So that's just a simple way of doing it. And please don't be overwhelmed by all these options for practical use, even for corporate projects, the most that I will do is apply broadcasts. In fact, I'll just look at the exposure and add some saturation and some white balancing. And to be honest, corporate clients, they're not looking at these fancy color graded Instagram type of color grading that a lot of these social media influencers are focusing on. If you are in Instagram game. Yes, that can be important by for corporate projects, it's not so important for YouTube if you're doing talking head videos, you know, just by covering those basis, you are covered. But if you want to get into more stylistic, more artistic things, yes, this is one way you can do it. And by having a knowledge of all these color mass, these hue saturation curves, you can do some pretty cool things, but sometimes having too many tools can slow you down over complicate things. And in my opinion, the most important thing when it comes to creating content is the type of content that you're creating and, and the purpose and reason why you're creating the concept. So hope that gives you some context to the color green section. And now we're going to go into some third-party plug-ins. So let's go over there in the next lesson. 54. Intro to 360 and publishingb: Okay, when it comes time to create your 360 video, it's important that you make some good decisions when creating the project. Otherwise, you may end up with a 360 video that is published and is not 360 capable. So an example is this video over here, which has been published using the default values with Final Cut Pro X. But it'll just show up as a video like this. That is not 360 enabled. So this is not what we want. And we have another example here which has been published in mono scopic mode, which should be 360 enabled. There we go. There I am. Okay, so just a few things before we begin. So if you are interested in creating 360 video, you will need a 360 camera, like a sand SO3 60 or a GoPro 360 camera. And if you're interested in learning more about 360 video, I do have a course about it while we are going to cover in this course is how to add up the 360 video. And we're also going to publish a 360 video over to YouTube and to Facebook. And to enjoy the 360 video, you do not need the VR glasses that you associate with 360 VR videos. You all you need is a phone or a laptop. Now if you're viewing it on your phone, you can actually just tilt and pan the phone to actually enjoy it. If you're on the computer, it's a different experience. You can actually go over to the platform like I am right now on YouTube. And you can just click the mouse, mouse over. And you can see you've got some controls here to turn right, turn laughed. Tilt up and down. Now if you tilt down too much, you'll see a blind spot, right? Okay. And if you go to Facebook, we get a similar interface. So we can pan. And you can see this icon here that's, that's also allowing us to control the experience. There we go. But this video is actually playing as soon as we press play. So it's a really dynamic type of video. So let's get started. Alright, so I'm going to start a new project. And it's important that you. Set up your columns. If you don't see them. You want to see 3-6 mode and stereoscopic mode columns. Now, I recommend that you keep your settings on aqua rectangular and mono scopic. Now, I'm not the 360 video expert, but as far as I understand it, modest scopic is going to allow you to view the video with both eyes when you're watching it. If you choose stereoscopic, which is more geared towards having a different type of video being available for each i if you're going to be watching on those glasses. So just for viewing it on social media, aqua rectangular stereoscopic is what we want. So we're gonna go through and create a brand new project. And we're going to try to select files that are of similar resolution and frame rate. We can simply right-click create new projects. One, Bourne Identity. Now it's important here that we select 360 video. We go with the resolution frame rate that the video is projection 360 microscopic. Alright, so we have a choice of stereoscopic and we're going to select, okay. Okay, so now we've got our project created. Let's just resize our browser, give us more real state. Something you should know about 360 videos is that you've got some different options here for titles, for effects and in the inspector. So let's start off with the titles. So in the titles, you will notice that there is a separate section just for 360 videos. And we can actually just bring down title here, will relate and work similar to regular titles, but you've got a few more options. So you can go ahead and select a tidal drag and down. Please ignore this sunspot here was probably an issue when I was recording and also the sun. An effect of the sun going on the lens. That's what I think. Okay, so over here on the left side we have the 360 viewers. So if you want to open that, click on the view over here and just make sure you have your 360 Viewer open. So this is the view that people are going to see on social media. The view on the right is more of our behind the scenes viewer that we can use to see how we're going to control the experience for the viewer. But the beauty about 360 video is that the person watching it, they can control the experience as well. So if we look at the viewer on the left, you can see that we've got the option to play around with us. Now this is not actually going to control the experience for the user, but this allows, this allows us to just look at it a different way. In Final Cut Pro X, we can see we've got different options here. If we wanna reset the angle, if we've been playing around with things, you can see we can rotate it and we can just reset the angle at any time by going over there. We also have the option to show the overlays. So if we want to look at the viewing angle over there, we can do that. So we can just reset things right from there. Alright, so the next thing we shared know about is that there are different effects for 3-6 C. So if we go over to our facts, we click over here, open up our facts. We can see that there are different 360 effects available to us. Now in this course, we won't spend too much time on the 360 effects. There's a lot to cover. We want to cover the basics first, and so I just want to make you aware of it. So another thing we need to be aware of is the inspector. So I have my Inspector open already. If you don't, should open it with command for. There is a new menu for 3-6 feet. It's called reorient. So you'll see it over here. If it's, it might be compressed. So just click Show. And we've got different values for 360 video of tilt, pan and roll. So we can see how those are impacted by changing these values. If we tilt, we can reset it if we mess things up. Panning is more traditional, right? So we can reset it. So this will actually change the viewing experience for someone watching it. Okay, and we're all kinda messes things up. Now that we understand how to control the reorient values, a better way of controlling it, that my personal opinion is to just do it from the actual viewer here. So we can click this icon over here. And we can do things like do keyframes, right? So we'll just keep things simple. And let's just say we want the viewer to look at me, right? So we'll just set things there. You can see it changes the pan value. And we could just reset the tilts, the role. And got a simple title here. Probably want to change this. So to change the title, we can click on this icon over here, just like we would for normal Title 360 in the park. Alright, so let's just expand that. And you see we've got the same options that we do have for a regular video. But there's some rotation options that we have. Won't dive into those too much. So there are some additional options here that you do have what, 3-6 titles. So we've just changed this since you can see that we do have options to change the rotation here. And you can see that we've got the keyframe icons, so we can see the potential here. We can actually keyframe things. So we've got 306 seats, titles rotating. So we can get pretty fancy here. But just for our first basic title, we want to create a basic, published a basic 3-6 video that works. So let's go ahead and just strip the sound for now. K. And let's just shorten the video so it's going to be faster. You can just make it ten seconds long. And maybe you just want to move the title over there. Alright, so we've got a basic 360 video. Let's just play it. Okay, so this title is rotating automatically. Okay, we're now ready to export and publish this baby. So we can either go over here or file share. And it's similar to a regular video. And we're just going to select video and audio. Sure. We don't have any audio in here. Let's select next. And let's just set the location to save this in or an identity 360. Okay, so we're gonna go ahead and publish this over to YouTube and Facebook once it is finished, and it's actually almost done. So we're gonna go ahead and open up our YouTube channels. I already have mine ready. I have a Facebook page. You can also publish those to your personal accounts. And yeah, you can upload it right over here. Now for YouTube, this is my YouTube channels is the backend. And see the video just finished creating. I can click create and upload. All right, so here's the video. This is what it looks like. So just playing it on my Mac on Quick Time, it's not 360 enabled. So we will need to upload it to either of these two platforms to enjoy the 360 viewing experience. So I'm just on my Facebook page where I think you can just upload it on your personal account to. So we're just going to select the file. Just quickly name and 360 in the park. Select next and publish. Okay, that may take a little while just for the video to process. So let's head over to YouTube. Upload. And we can select the file as well. Same file, select open. And I have to go through some publishing options here. So in 20-20, may 20-20, YouTube has some default options that you need a select. Now we're not gonna dive into all the details here as a YouTube or if you want to publish those properly. But at a minimum, should at least have your title. Description links if you need an thumbnail. But you need to these days you need to select this radio button nodes, not for kids. Great to put some tags here. I'm not actually going to make this public because just doing this for the purpose of the tutorial. And we're not going to monetize, so select next, but we do need to select that option and I'm just going to slack off next. Now if you do select monetize, there's some mandatory questions you need to ask. Select next, and we're just going to leave this unlisted. Ok, now that is going to process and we can view it in 36 C until it is done. Let's head over to Facebook and see if the video is ready. It is still preparing. Okay, so we're going to let this video process and we'll come back and see how it displays on Facebook and YouTube. 55. 11: Now do you use a lot of shortcuts in follow-up products? I use them sometimes, and I'm guilty of not using them enough. There are so many keyboard shortcuts to remember. Well, I'm going to show you how you can look up the keyboard shortcuts and also create some keyboard shortcuts of your own that you can save and reuse on different Final Cut Pro X systems. Let's just say another computer. You can port your customized keyboard shortcuts. So let's get started. The area we want to go to as Final Cut Pro and commands, we wanna select, Customize. And this is going to bring up the full keyboard. And you can see here, if we mouse over any of the keys, is going to tell us what that key does. And we have our modifiers here. So for example, if we click command and if we use Command Six, that's gonna take us to the color inspector. If we do Command seven, that's going to show or hide our video scopes. Ok, what about if we wanted to make our own keyboard? So we cannot modify the default. So what we need to do is to duplicate. And I'm just going to name this after myself, Gregg. And now I can make modifications. Now, any of these modifiers you can highlight and it'll tell you what it will do. You can also make combinations of modifiers. For example, command, shift five will hide or show the transitions browser. If the key is gray, that means there isn't any command associated with that combination. Over here we've got some color coding. For example, editing as blue effects is orange brown. And for example, Windows are purple. Ok, let's just say we want to change the command for zoom in and zoom out. So that's one of the shortcuts that I use quite a lot. I know that in order to zoom in, we need to press Command Plus. So if we want to change that key, we can search for zoom. And let's just say I want to change. Zoom in. I just wanna do that by pressing plus. Now there isn't any plus on the keyboard, so plus is also equals. So let's just click that. And if we don't have any modifier, and we just press plus, that is zooming in. Okay? How about P? Okay, so if we have no modifier, that's the position tool. So let's just say I want to zoom in with p. And we can simply drag this command over to P. And it's going to replace physician tool with zoom in K. So now I mouse over the p, Now it's set to zoom in. Let's do the same to zoom out here. Let's see what's under o set range set. So we can see here what oh does with no modifiers, sight range, end. If we use the command modifier, it's going to open the library. So let's just replace this one over here. If we just press o, we wanted to zoom out. So simply gonna drag zoom out to the o. Click. And now if I mouse over, that is zoom out and zoom in. So that's one way you can replace some of the commands using your own keyboard shortcuts. Let's just do one more here. Let's do the voice over or record. Okay, so this is the current keyboard shortcut to start a voice over. And so this is Option Shift. A. Pretty hard to remember. Let's just say we want to make this shift a. So shift a is to monitor or audio. So we wanted to start our voice over recording with shift a. Let's just drag it over. And we can see here that now if we mouseover shift a will start and stop, or a voiceover recording. If I take off the shelf modifier, a, we'll just select tool. All right, the last thing we need to do is if we want to save all this hard work, is we can save this by clicking save and close. And we can just make sure which keyboard we're using, we're using Greg. So if I want to start a voiceover recording, I can hit shift a. And that should bring up the voiceover and my picture is okay, and we can also import this keyboard over to another system. So what I recommend is that you save this file, you export it and put it in the cloud like Dropbox or somewhere else. So you can easily recall and import this shortcut file. So I'm just gonna save this over, enter our project files if you want to import this into your system. Alright, so that is keyboard shortcuts for Final Cut Pro X. 56. 11: We are returning to a video that we did where we sync a separate audio feed with video. And now we're going to cover how do we actually complete this project so we can publish it over to YouTube or podcasts. Christmas, but that's all. Okay. So we're going to put together a lot of what we learned to complete this project. What I'm looking for is starting point. There's a lot of times where you start recording, but you have to go through the actual starting points. So I like to use a clock sink here, 2013. So I can just scrub through from originally. Or you are like okay, from the intro or yeah. I'll just introduce a general my phone. And it helps suppress l just to speed up the plane back. There. There's the clop sink. Okay, so I'm just going to trim to the beginning there. Alright. Let me find that starting point again. Or you are sorting like I just don't think I just missed it. Okay. So I can either leave the playhead there. I can make a marker C And there's a mark there. And what I can do is make a compound clips so I can edit both video and audio at same time. And then I can make a trim there. Well, remember, okay, well, remember the beauty of online teaching model is that you'd plot a good, alright, so this is a real life scenario the camera gave out before the audio did. So. This is where I can make an incision or make a mark that out by doing a lot of building great hall tests on content that people never seen before. Alright? So I can make a mark marker. And we can actually, we can actually break apart this call pow clip again. Can use the blade tool because that part is not needed. And I thought I had like I, of with these lives, they want to build a great quartets. Don't cost anything. Okay, so real life scenario is, I can use the audio for podcasts. I'll attack me up. I'll be hit those with a lot of guys that regulations are. So let's go all the way to the end. Or at Snow by theta. Well, I guess I get people find a way you don't want people to find, you know, but edit optimal acts on Instagram. Send me and dm. Say. That's about it. Yeah. Terrace. All right. Let's see. So I'll just faded it out. Remember one. Something that we can do to the audio, can enhance hits, give it a voice enhance. And now this is where it helps to have some headphones plugged in. So I'm actually going to play headphones. So I actually don't like the way that comes across. We can. Alright, so that's fine. So we're going to start off by just exploiting the audio. Now you can also use the roles feature if you look at that lesson. But for now we're just going to export this as an MP3. Just export this. All right, so we also have the video portion. Okay, so because the video cut out before the audio, this is a good opportunity to encourage people to sign up for my podcasts. So what we can do is Fade things out. We can go to a faded color. Also wanna fade out the music. And we can put a title. Check the Show podcast. Alright, let's make it a bit smaller. Extend it. Maybe I'll even add a colleague book effect here. Actually like that Calling book effect. And you can play around with the different color book effect. My backstory. Here we go. You can check that out on my YouTube channel if you're interested. Okay. Let's change the baseline, moved that up. We can, this'll make an us thumbnail. So let's save this. And lastly, we want to export the video, video, and audio. And it's just gonna be a big one. And I can do a slightly smaller file size. There we go. Real life scenario exporting an interview. So I hope you can see how we're putting things together for actual real-life scenarios, replied Some effects and do some trimming out at some titles. So think about some ways that you can use the new skills you've created an Final Cut Pro X to do something practical, I can interview. I'll supply you with some project files to get some practice as well. Sinking the footage, trimming, adding a title, and maybe even publishing something for yourself on Youtube. 57. FCPX intro to multi cam editing: Hey guys, this is an introduction to multi-camera do editing in why you wanna do it and how is it used? We have a specific lesson that deep dives into this multi-camera video editing is when you use two cameras to record one person, it gives the added element of better production value. Usually used for interviews. You've seen some of the new stations will have maybe two or three different camera angles of one person. This is an example of our yoga course where we've got different angles for the introduction to hold the viewers attention and give the appearance of increased production value. So just a quick overview of how the concept works is you've got a camera one, which is this angle camera two. And we highlight both clips. We right-click Fleck Newport multi cam clip. And you can choose which event to put it in. And the main option we want is to use audio for sinking. It's important that you've got audio and both cameras. And usually one camera will have the better audio. And that's going to create a multi-camera clip, which will look something like this. When you are multi-camera editing, you want to go to view angles. And you'll want to switch between different camera angles using 12 to switch between the different angles. So I'll just use a quick example here. We are currently on camera one. I'll press to switch to camera two. And it makes those cuts for us, which is pretty nice. If you want to name the clip camped here, you can highlight clip. And in the Command inspector on the information, this is where you can name the camera name cam to or CAM one. So this is k1 here. I can name this cam one. Hit enter. And that's just a brief overview of multi-camera do editing. Definitely check out the other lesson or multichannel video editing. And I've got to project files with actual corporate projects that have also used multi-camera video editing. Those files are the p near files, which will allow you to study how multichannel video editing is done. Speaking. So these are the two files here. So those are actual paid client projects that I've done for corporate clients. And that's where you'll do more severe multichannel video editing. Or if you have a course or a any type of video, you want higher production value. 58. 11: So I'm going to walk through how we set up this multitasking projects. So in this event here, and we've imported the video clips from both cameras and a preview the clips so I know what they are. Now I know the MBI just from experience is the Canon camera. So which is cam to and the PRG is my phi, which is camera on. So what do you need to do is highlight both of the similar clips, shot with both cameras. Highlight them by the noun command and click. And then you right-click and select new multi-camera flip. And then you can just leave the defaults here and you can give them a name. I'm not gonna do that because I already did, but hit OK. And it's going to create something like this seamless multichannel clip. You'll see the icon is a different, you'll see the icon with the force squares. And yeah, you can then lay that down into the timeline by pressing E are dragging down. So once I've got the multi-camera clips into the timeline, what I like to do is drill into it by double-clicking. And what I'll do is also open up this view window so you can see both camera angles. So to do that and you can go to view this highlight angles. And to switch to toggle between camera angle 12. While it's actually playing in the timeline. You can just press one or two. I'll show an example here. So this angle here is what we call angle one. I know this can be a bit confusing because this is actually camera too, which is my Canon SLR. But for this video editing projects, this is angle one. So I press one on keyboards for this angle, and then I'll press two on the keyboard to switch. I'll just show you quickly. So I'll just play it through. Then I'll press to see. So that too will automatically make an incision in some of the timeline and switch the camera angle. Now, once you've got this as incision and you can actually lengthen the clip. So you lump them the time that you want from camera angle one or two. I'm just going to take that off. And then when I wanted to make a cut, I can use the blades hole using b. Now because I've left that English speaking questions in here for now, you can use marker, so Mark versus the lights to see if there's something that you need to pay attention to in the timeline without actually cutting anything. So I just press M for that. So that's five means the markers. Okay, let's drill into a multi-camera club. So you can see that there's two camera angles here. And this controls the complete underlying Club for the camera, camera angle 12. So you can do things like highlight the clip. And that gives you the inspector so you can actually adjust the color here. So my workflow is to, I'll just exposure first for camera angle one or two whenever it is. Make sure it's the right exposure. And you can check out some other videos on how to do that, but I want to make sure that the exposures okay. And then I'll do things like Todd graded, so I'll add some saturation. And if I need to make Danny exposure adjustments, it's over here. I'll just show you quickly what it looks like without any color adjustments. So we'll just take that off. So this is without any color, with color. And I've used my sharpening plugin. So this is a actual product you can buy. If you Google The Final Cut Pro X sharpening plugin, I sell it through my company's Sheikh Leontief production is all calm and something that I need to sharpen up. Footage shot with Canada Nestle, ours because they are a little bit soft. Ok, so let's go to camera angle 2s. So this x5, so do the same thing. Just exposure and the color. I'll let you take a peek at what I do. I don't really need to do too much with the GH 5s is add a little bit of saturation. And because we're using the audio feeds from this camera, something that I will do, add noise. We will just say remove some of the background noise. And yeah, that's that. Now after there was multiple takes and I spent a lot of time adjusting the color for camera angle one and camera angle to. You will need to make another multi-camera clip. So let's just say it's take five and you stop the camera, stop recording. I'll just go to the end here. So this is a completely different multi angle clip. But something you can do is you can do, you can hold down command S0. Or if you go to the menu and you can copy, and you can back out by hitting that arrow there. And you can drill into another multichannel Club, which is say we copied the color from the other moles camp. And you wanted to apply and you can go to edit, paste attributes. And then you have an option of selecting, OK. I want the same type of color. I don't want to apply it to this clip. I want the same type of audio adjustments and apply it to this book. So that's a good time saver over there. And yeah, those are some tips for doing phase one. Let me just take a look how I covered everything. And yeah, so a lot of trimming, switching, the camera angles, color grading. And now we want to export our first draft, which is basically the, you know, the edited interview with color grading. So I'll export that over to H.264. And I'll afterwards I'll upload it to Dropbox or Google Drive. In this case, I'll select video and audio H.264 for the smallest file and for the actual finish interview. I'm going to try doing progress 4.2.2 or cameras LT depends on the size and can get pretty big. So these are higher quality versions than H.264, but H.264 is a standard and you can preview the size of the file there. So for this video, specifically the tiny and I need to outsource this video for translation because I don't speak Thai. So I created an H.264 version. I uploaded it to Google Drive. And then I sent the person who's gonna translate the link so they could download it. And they can provide me a file that's going to have the time codes as well as the translation for this tie video. So this is the end of phase one. Phase two. We're gonna drill into this a bit deeper. We're looking at music selection, how we're going to use the B-roll, the atmosphere in the working shots. You're going to find someone to trimming and use the corporate templates. And our goal is to create a actual first draft and can show the clients to get revisions and inputs to work on. Okay, so let's go over to phase two. 59. 11: And then we're back. And this is Phase Two of editing the corporate video. And now we're going to cover a couple of things. I'm just going to go down my list here. We've been going through music selection for both videos. We're gonna go through use of B-roll, very important part of these types of videos, as well as atmosphere and working shots, which are also a type of v role. And we're gonna be doing some fine tune trimming during this phase. And our goal is to create the first dropped. I also got a corporate template from pain year that they want in their intro. And this is the first time they're using this type of template just to introduce the branding. So that was a bit of a challenge as well. And I want to show you how I dealt with that. Alright, so it's been a bit of a grind. So desk is massless as authentic stuff. But let's get started. So for the music, I looked at ccMixter.org and I had a couple of tracks that have already downloaded. So I ended up picking a couple of tracks. And the important thing to know for these tracks is that they need to be long enough for an entire song. I wanted should try avoid switching audio tracks in the middle of the video. So it's actually usually I lay down the music track verse and then I'll cut the video horns of obese, but that's more for a trouble video. These are more corporate videos, so the cuts that do not rely as much on the music. And the music you want something that's upbeat, but you also want to instrumental. And it was actually a bit harder than I thought. So I found track them just as long as the interviews about three or four minutes long. And it's royalty-free, meaning I can use it for commercial purposes. So that was the music for the first video. Now for B-roll, I drew on my Start-Finish libraries. So I gave pain year access to mine tire library for use of their video projects. So I drew into things like Bangkok scenes when he was talking about the company being established in Bangkok. I also use some other different types of B-roll when he was talking about exchange rates and finance. I use some of my shots on finance there as well. So footage of boards where there's currency, different currencies displayed. So not only travel footage, but also the digging into other parts of my collection. So it helps to listen, listen through the entire video, and then add B-roll when it's necessary and not deciding Bureau for the sake of it. Of course, we had the workshops there. And then at the end of the video. And you can see here in the actual timeline that we know there's a good distribution of the hero. And this is two. Not only to show a scene when he's talking about it, but it's also to break up the interview because people can get a bit bored of just looking at someone talking. So over here I'll just show you an example. He's talking about growth of the business. So I tried to choose some B-roll that demonstrate that the company's going fast by showing a fast moving speed boats. And then a nice scene that shows a prosperous BIG city. So there's a lot of thought that goes into the entire thing. I tried to end the video on a good note, so nice happy smiles. And then we end up with the pain, your logo. Just the fade to black at the very end there. And we've got the title for our speaker here at the beginning. So just use the lower thirds basic title over there and they had a specific font they wanted to use. So I follow their guidelines just so we're there. Okay. And then I just laid a title on top. Just see in the this is the first draft. So there is a lower thirds title. Let's go over to the second video. And we can look at the templates as well as some of the other things that we did for that video. So music was a bit tougher, ought to go on my entire collection to find something that was long enough, as well as upbeat. And I'm scrolling down the B-roll. I'm slow waiting for the subtitles so I can actually understand what he's talking about because this is all, it's high right now, of course, I've blocked the questions in English, which I've left in here. So nice. I know which parts are talking about watts. But as far as other B-roll, I'm going to need to see that translation before I can do a third pass and put relevant B-roll. Based on what he's saying. I did use some of my other footage around the world, use talking about where are your customers from when he was talking about Australia and the US, someone actually going to insert some trouble landmarks for Australia and the US and put that in the videos. So thus bringing need. Also, that's some drone shots at the beginning here that I've used a new technique, the zoom transition. Corporate videos can often be a bit dry, so I'm just going to try that out, see if they like it in the end and depends on my my client, the project manager, if they are happy with that. But there is a bit of creative freedom. And sometimes you have to make decisions on your own and put in the video and then if they don't like it, then they will let you know. So this is where I've got my first seen coming into the video. And then over here is that zoom transition. So we've got a drone on his actual home office and then we fly towards the home office and in zooms in. And then we see some of the nice books and around his office. And then we dive into the interview. Let's take a look at the templates. And I'm making snapshots throughout because there's all of these micro changes and it takes a long time to sort this out. Ok, so basically the template was a ZIP file and it consisted of some masks. Let me see if I can find it for us over here. That's so and you falls. So we had some file. So actually created another event and then I stuck all the files for their template package in there. So they had a Photoshop file. So actually I have to open up my Photoshop and then replace that with the name of the speaker. And here we had an animation for the arrows and an example of exactly what the finish product should be. But there was no instructions hard to put this gathers, so needed a little bit of creativity and, you know, just trial and error to try to replicate that, to get all these parts of the package together. So first I just laid down the arrow package. So that ran the length of the entire intro. And then when the arrows go pass the name, the name actually disappears. And that's where we had to make use of the mass. So I'd to experiment by using the mass to see those name go away. And there was another mask for the very last slide. And I actually had to cut short the Photoshop file so it would disappear. So I guess the lesson here is sometimes you just have to figure out based on the example of trial and error. But we're using the profile formats. There are Photoshop file. And then we had some animations on mass. And then we have to put that all together. Just for, you know, that's six or seven seconds, but it can take awhile to figure that out. Okay, so so other than that, pretty much is the bulk of the editing from where I'm going to get the transcription for the Thai based video. Give me a little bit tricky, but because I've got the English questions already in the timeline and I will have the time code on the transcription which I requested. I'm just gonna leave that I'm going to leave the time on as is until I get the transcription. And then I'm going to lay over the subtitles. And then we're going to make the first drop. So the Thai videos definitely going to be more work. But yeah, this is a process and have been continually making backups, as I said, very, very important. And you just need to spend some solid time in front of the computer. 60. FCPX HOW TO IMPORT 360 VIDEOS: What's up, everyone? Welcome to the 360 videos section of Final Cut Pro X. So to begin, let's import our 360 videos so we can head over to the File Import. And I will supply you with the practice files with the 36 footage. So File Import media. And let me go over to the course files. For you. It'll be a lot easier to find these. I'll just put them in the product files. Here we go. So these 3-6 files were filmed in Vancouver. Okay. So I'm just going to create an events and I can choose to copy them to library or leave the files in place. I will just leave the files in place and import selected. Okay, so in our next lesson, we're going to go through creating a project, editing in 360 video, et cetera. So why don't you go ahead and start importing your 3-6 videos into an event in your library. 61. FCPX 2020 intro to 360 and publishing fix: Okay, when it comes time to create your 360 video, it's important that you make some good decisions when creating the project. Otherwise, you may end up with a 360 video that is published and is not 360 capable. So an example is this video over here, which has been published using the default values with Final Cut Pro X. But it'll just show up as a video like this. That is not 360 enabled. So this is not what we want. And we have another example here which has been published in mono scopic mode, which should be 360 enabled. There we go. There I am. Okay, so just a few things before we begin. So if you are interested in creating 360 video, you will need a 360 camera, like a sand SO3 60 or a GoPro 360 camera. And if you're interested and learning more about 360 video, I do have a course about it while we are going to be covering in this course is how to edit the 36 voted footage. While we are going to cover in this course, is how do you add up the 360 video? And we're also going to publish a 360 video over to YouTube and to Facebook. And to enjoy the 360 video, you do not need the VR glasses that you associate with 360 VR videos, you all you need is a phone or a laptop. If you're viewing it on your phone, you can actually just tilt and pan the phone to actually enjoy it. If you're on the computer, it's a different experience. You can actually go over to the platform like I am right now on YouTube. And you can just click the mouse, mouse over. And you can see you've got some controls here to turn right, turn left, tilt up and down. Now if you tilt down too much, you'll see a blind spot, right? Okay. And if we go over to Facebook, we get a similar interface. So we can pan. And you can see this icon here that's, that's also allowing us to control the experience. There we go. But this video is actually playing as soon as we press play. So it's a really dynamic type of video. So let's get started. Alright, so I'm going to start a new project. And it's important that you. Set up your columns. If you don't see them. You want to see 360 mode and stereoscopic mode columns. Now, I recommend that you keep your settings on aqua rectangular and mono scopic. Now, I'm locked the 360 video expert, but as far as I understand at modest scopic is going to allow you to view the video with both eyes when you're watching it. If you choose stereoscopic, which is more geared towards having a different type of video being available for each i if you're going to be watching on those glasses. So just for viewing it on social media, aqua rectangular stereoscopic is what we want. So we're gonna go through and create a brand new project. And we're going to try to select files that are of similar resolution and frame rate. We can simply right-click create new projects. One, Bourne Identity. Now it's important here that we select 360 video. We go with the resolution and frame rate that the video is projection 360 microscopic. Alright, so we have a choice of stereoscopic and we're gonna select, okay. Okay, so now we've got our project created. Let's just resize our browser, give us more real estate. Something you should know about 360 videos is that you've got some different options here for titles, for facts and in the inspector. So let's start off with the titles. The titles, you will notice that there is a separate section just for 360 videos. And we can actually just bring down title here, will relate and work similar to regular titles, but you've got a few more options. So you can go ahead and select a tidal drag and down. Please ignore this sunspot here was probably an issue when I was recording and also the sun. An effect of the sun going on the lens. That's what I think. Okay, so over here on the left side we have the 360 viewers. So if you want to open that, click on the view over here and just make sure you have your 360 Viewer open. So this is the view that people are going to see on social media. The view on the right is more of our behind the scenes viewer that we can use to see how we're going to control the experience for the viewer. But the beauty about 360 video is that the person watching it, they can control the experience as well. So if we look at the viewer on the left, you can see that we've got the option to play around with us. Now this is not actually going to control the experience for the user, but this allows, this allows us to just look at it a different way. In Final Cut Pro X, we can see we've got different options here. If we wanna reset the angle, if we've been playing around with things, you can see we can rotate it and we can just reset the angle at any time by going over there. We also have the option to show the overlays. So if we want to look at the viewing angle over there, we can do that. So we can just reset things right from there. Alright, so the next thing we shared know about is that there are different effects for 3-6 C. So if we go over to our facts, we click over here, open up our facts. We can see that there are different 360 effects available to us. Now in this course, we won't spend too much time on the 360 effects. There's a lot to cover. We want to cover the basics verse, and so I just want to make you aware of it. So another thing we need to be aware of is the inspector. So I have my Inspector open already. If you don't, you should open it with command for. There is a new menu for 3608. It's called reorient. So you'll see it over here. If it's, it might be compressed. So just click Show. And we've got different values for 360 video tilt, pan and roll. So we can see how those are impacted by changing these values. If we tilt, we can reset it if we mess things up. Panning is more traditional, right? So we can reset it. So this will actually change the viewing experience for someone watching it. Okay, and we're all kinda messes things up. Now that we understand how to control the reorient values, better way of controlling it, that my personal opinion is to just do it from the actual viewer here. So we can click this icon over here. And we can do things like do keyframes, right? So we'll just keep things simple. And let's just say we want the viewer to look at me, right? So we'll just set things there. You can see it changes the pan value. And we can just reset the totes, the role. And got a simple title here. Probably wanted to change this. So let's change the title. We can click on this icon over here, just like we would for normal Title 360 in the park. All right, so let's just expand that. And you see we've got the same options that we do have for a regular video. But there's some rotation options that we have. Won't dive into those too much. So there are some additional options here that we do have what 360 titles. So we've just changed this since you can see that we do have options to change the rotation here. And you can see that we've got the key frame icons, so we can see the potential here. We can actually keyframe things. So we've got 306 seats, titles rotating. So we can get pretty fancy here. But just for our first basic title, we want to create a basic, publish a basic 3-6 video that works. So let's go ahead and just strip the sound for now. K And that let's just shorten the video so it's going to be faster. You can just make it ten seconds long. And maybe you just want to move the title over there. Alright, so we've got a basic 3-6 video. Let's just play it. Okay, so this title is rotating automatically. Okay, we're now ready to export and publish this baby. So we can either go over here or file share. And it's similar to a regular video. And we're just going to select video and audio. Sure. We don't have any audio in here. Let's select next. And let's just set the location to save us in or an identity 360. Okay, so we're gonna go ahead and publish this over to YouTube and Facebook once it is finished, and it's actually almost done. So we're gonna go ahead and open up our YouTube channels. I already have mine ready. I have a Facebook page. You can also publish those to your personal accounts. And yeah, you can upload it right over here. Now for YouTube, this is my YouTube channels is the backend. And see the video just finished creating. I can click create and upload. All right, so here's the video. This is what it looks like. So just playing it on my Mac on Quick Time, it's not 360 enabled. So we will need to upload it to either of these two platforms to enjoy the 360 viewing experience. So I'm just on my Facebook page where I think you can just upload it on your personal account to. So we're just going to select the file. Just quickly name in 360 in the park. Select next and publish. Okay, that may take a little while just for the video to process. So let's head over to YouTube. Upload. And we can select the file as well. Same file flapped open. Okay, and I have to go through some publishing options here. So in 20-20, may 20-20, YouTube has some default options that you need a select. Now we're not gonna dive into all the details here as a YouTube or if you want to publish those properly. But at a minimum, Shirley's Javier title, description links if you need an thumbnail, but you need to these days, you need to select this radio button nodes, not for kids. Great to put some tags here. I'm not actually gonna make those public because just doing this for the purpose of the tutorial. And we're not going to monetize, so select next, but we do need to select that option and I'm just going to slack off next. Now if you do select monetize, there's some mandatory questions you need to ask. Select next, and we're just going to leave this unlisted. Ok, now that is going to process and we can view it in 36 C until it is done. Let's head over to Facebook and see if the video is ready. It is still preparing. Okay, so we're going to let this video process and we'll come back and see how it displays on Facebook and YouTube. 62. ADVANCED 360 VIDEO PROJECT: Alright, so in the last lesson we created a basic 3-6 video. And now we're gonna get a little bit more advance. We're going to add some more clips. And we're going to add some music. So we got something a little bit better to show that we can actually publish to our channels. So let's start off by getting some music, file imports, media. And let's just find a track. I will supply you with some music that you can use. Let's just check this up. Okay, let's just go with this one. Added to the same event. Just import selected. And we have our events, have the truck in our event. Okay? So I'm just going to drag this down to the project here. Alright, you can see you don't have as much real estate now. We've got our browser, but i will change things after for now, I just want to select some clips. Let's do one where he put more dynamic, where we're riding the bike. Let me just check that this is a similar resolution. Spyglass. Yep. Okay. So I'm gonna select this, drag it down. Let's select a few more here. Another bike riding one. Sure. They can just select the portion that we want. Drag it down. I'll just clean things up in the timeline. See if we can find something. But different. Okay, this one's nice. Actually took these during a bike ride and around the Vancouver seawall, which is this really beautiful in the summer. Okay, this one's also select one more. I believe I have one and a coffee shop. So let's search for coffee. Or Starbucks. Okay. Might be easier to go to the film strip. Here, this. Okay, let's just go to Lists mode and double-check that. Yep, this is the same resolution and mano scopic. So I'll also bring this down. Alright, so now I've got my clips in the timeline. Let's resize our columns. Let's zoom out command minus to get more real estate. So first thing I will do is I'll just strip the audio by highlighting them and taking out the audio. One still has audio. So let's take that out. All right. So let's just start laying down the clips here. This can be a pretty basic video. Okay, so we've got seven seconds in here. So let's go to transitions. And we also have 360 transitions over here. So we're going to have some fun and see what these do. So let's just put a transition in between these two clips. Let's see what it does. You can see out of the box. It's pretty impressive actually. So we highlight the transition. And we opened the viewer. You can see we can change the angle that it starting from. We can change the direction, can even change the speed. So a lot of options to play around with the transition here. Alright. So we're going to resize this. So I can see in the the viewer that this is not a nice experience for our person watching it. So we gotta change what perspective they're looking at. So I'm going to highlight the transform. And we still got our traditional options here, but I've got the reorient selected. And now I can change the angle here so that they're at least looking straight ahead to begin with. And now I can change the role. So it's bit more level. Maybe something like that. So that at least the viewer is looking straight ahead. All right, so let's just try it out a bit. Alright. Now this club, I think I want to show on actually show myself. So on this changed the angle there. Alright. How about another transition? So because we are going to be going directly to another clip, I'll just use a slide. Okay, so we're back to bike riding. Okay, so let's change the angle here. So let's highlight transform, the Orient icon. And you can see it's a bit misaligned, so let's adjust the role. There we go. Okay, that's nice. Trick, compress l speed things up. So it's actually a nice bike trail in Vancouver, Ontario Street. So I'm just speeding through this. And alright, I'm just going to trim it a bit. Alright, so we want another transition here. Let's choose something different here. And let's see what options we have for this transition. Transition. Can change the starting longitude, the speed. Let's ease. And n. There we go. So this is a time-lapse, Very cool. But it's not the angle I want. So again, we're going to click the Orient icon and let's just change that angle. Ok, so what I will do is I'm going to cut this clip. I'm going to use the blade tool because I want to show two different angles so that our blade tool, so the first part will be myself. And then the next clip. I'll just show you what my perspective is over there. And you can see it's a bit misaligned. Just the role. All right? Okay, so let's just capitalists video off and faded down. And unless you use one of these 360 titles as a whole, the action. So let's take a look at what we have here. Data like this rotate one. So let's put down here. Let's change it to subscribe to see more 360 videos. So we click there. And we can see that it's a little bit hard to see. So we can actually change the substance versus change to match the type of atmosphere where n, and we can change the type of wood. Let's change it to red word and give it a drop shadow. Say we've got all these extra menus we can use to change some options there. Okay, let's just reset that. Change it to a lighter color. Alright, what's going down? Subscribe to see more 360 videos. Great. Change that title. Little bit smaller. Okay, great. Well, ready to export this video. Let's just kick that off and we'll summarize what we've done. We've done quite a bit here and I'm sorry if I've lost you. Okay, so subtitle settings. We definitely want audio because we have a music track here. And let's just start publishing that. Okay, so let's summarize what we did here. We added multiple clips of the same resolution, ultra HD 4K app or rectangular microscopic. We inserted a 360 title. We looked at some of the different options that we have with 3-6 titles. And they got some pretty cool options. If you do go into and the title area, you can see that there's a lot we can play with. And these keyframes here, me. These keyframes here allow you to do different options. We added some of the transitions, 360 transitions that have a lot of options you can play with and things like the longitude, direction, speed, etcetera. And we went on, we added some different types of transitions. And as we went on, we adjusted the orientation for the viewer using the reorient option in the inspector. Now again, the viewer has the option to control the experience. But we also have the ability to from the start change or set the angle that they are going to watch it at. Lastly, we put a call to action, a 36 title just to cap off the video and we published the video. The last step we need to do is, as you saw in the previous video, we need a publish this over to YouTube and to Facebook. So the very last thing we're going to cover in the next lesson is how we can use keyframes to further enhance the 360 video experience. 63. FCPX 2020 Creating a tiny planet video: What's up, everyone? It's Greg Kang here. And in this video we're gonna learn how to do the tiny planet effect. In Final Cut Pro X, you may have seen these tiny planet effect videos. If you've watched some YouTube videos, they have made them available for the DJI drones and I've been playing around with them a little bit, but now you can create your own tiny plant effect videos if you have 360 video footage. And the appropriate version of Final Cut Pro X, just like I have here. So starting with Final Cut Pro X, version 10.4.4 and motion, which is a separate program, motion 5.4.2, you can create this tiny planet effect. So we're going to create a brand new project. And if you're in this course, I've supplied you with the 360 video footage. So the only thing we need to do is to select our 360 video clips. I'm going to switch over to the film strip view to decide which clip I'm going to turn into a tiny planet. So let's just browse over here. Let's select the signs world one here. I'll try this. So we can right-click select New Project. Now, before, when we're creating a 360 projects, we selected 360. But because we want this tiny plot in effect, we want to just select a regular resolution video. And because this is ultra HD 4K, I'm selecting the resolution here. So I'm going to call this tiny planet bike ride. And right off the bat, I'm just going to take the audio here. Okay? Alright, so we've got our clip into the timeline are 360 clip into just a regular video project basically. And how do we make this something that's a little bit more unique, okay, so we gotta go to inspector command for if you don't have this window open. And the key areas you need to change is the mapping area. You need to change this from normal to tiny planet. There we go. So now we've got our tiny planet video and we can control the perspective by clicking on the reorient icon. You can see it's highlighted now. And I can change the values here. You can see that I'm changing the area, the pan, the pan and the tilt. Now if I hold down shift, I can just limited to one plain view. And this is pretty cool. This is really cool. So we can change the tilt, we can change the pan, and we can also change the field of view. Alright? And to finish creating the project, we can simply just slack file, share, master file, just like you would any other video on Final Cut Pro X. So we select next tiny planet bike ride to. And there we go. So in the next lesson, I'm going to cover keyframes and how we can use those throughout Final Cut Pro X. But specifically for 360 videos, because there's a whole lot of potential that we can add to make our videos more dynamic, cooler using the different options that we have here. So throughout Final Cut proactive, you see these icons, these values can be changed, so you'll see more about that in the next video lesson. 64. FCPX 2020 publishing to fbook creator studio: Alright guys, where are in Facebook and we're going to attempt to publish this video. We are in the creator's studio of Facebook. This is a new area, a lot to learn. Things are changing very quickly here. So let's upload a single video. And let's just set selects 360 bike ride vancouver. So I have a Facebook page here, so you may need a 360 page to see all these options, right? 360 director tools. Okay, so we've got a lot of options here. Let's just wait for this to load up. So we can change the point of view for people that are watching. Maybe what some classes some. Or we can change the experience on mobile. So you can see if I zoom in and zoom out with the phone, that we're getting some things cutoff. We can set the guy point. And if we have the glass, as you can see, the point of view is completely different. Okay, so let's just say I want to start off right here on me. Alright. So again, this is on Facebook creator studio, and we've selected 360 mode. Okay? Select this as a premier. And I'm gonna select next publish. Now. Alright. And I can even post these to other pages. Alright, there we go. Gutter 360 video. Alright guys, so this is our 360 in the park video that we created earlier on Facebook. So you can see that it's playing. We can control the angles over here. And the other videos need some time to process. So let's see if we can view those a bit later. But just so you know, we've covered a lot here. We've uploaded basic 360 videos, we've uploaded more advanced videos. And we even went into the Creator Studio, facebook to show you the different options we have in 360 to further control the experience of the user has a lot of stuff that is changing here, very dynamic. So hope you enjoyed this coverage of the 360 and follow cup relax as well as a little bit of coverage in Facebook creator studio. 65. FCPX 2020 summary: Congratulations on finishing Final Cut Pro X for 20-20. I'd like to thank Phil for partnering with me on this course and please check out his school Video school online. As far as the actual course, I found that the improvements that I think are gonna be most game-changing Are the 360 video. They've upgraded the Final Cut Pro X menu, so there's more support. It's also nice that they have the tiny planet option if you do want to use 360 video in irregular object. And I can see that Final Cut Pro X has continued to add to their, their sound effects, their transitions, and those types of things add value to creators. Of course, Final Cut Pro X is a very solid platform for creating for corporate professional use. But I think the future as far as creating for social media, for Instagram or YouTube, The future is pretty bright. What I haven't seen yet is an option that silver to Adobe Premiere where you can auto reframe, which is taking an existing video in a 16 by nine formats and being able to adapt that to other aspect ratios for Instagram or Instagram TV or Facebook stories. So hopefully they release an update for that. I was impressed with the upgrades to support captions. There's the inclusion of roles which allow you to separate and organize your media lock better in the timeline and when you're sharing. And I think the third-party plug-ins are very powerful to the ability to add additional lookup tables, additional transitions. And I've seen, like I mentioned, the YouTubers are using these transitions to really add really dynamic videos, or especially for the trouble videos. The insert grammars like to use those to grab attention to transition from drone shots to the ground. So I hope you enjoy this course. You learned a lot. I tried to make it as relevance, giving you the fundamentals, but also giving you some more current real-world stuff. And as I film this course, we are during the lockdown period and lot of people are spending a lot of time online. So I think it's a great time to be a creator.
