About This Class

In this course we look at how to composite and animate video and layered Photoshop files in Final Cut Pro X. In the project you will create a layered Photoshop project that draws and animates itself onto the screen. Final Cut Pro X may primarily be a video editor but with a smart fusion of Photoshop, cropping and keyframing you can create some awesome motion graphics in this application.

Some previous knowledge of Photoshop is recommended for this course. A knowledge of how to create and manipulate layers to create a design will help a lot as we mostly discuss how to get layers into Final Cut Pro X then animate them.

Enjoy the course and let me know if you have any questions. I check in here daily so please expect a quick response.
