1. SKILLSHARE FINAL PROMO 2020: Would you like to create videos like this? Or maybe even like this? Well, in our complete final cut pro essentials course is for you. Hi, My name is Joe Paris, and I'm the best selling online course creator in this video course I'm going to be sharing with you in teaching you how to use final cut pro from beginner to advanced. Now, really, this course is for you if you're somebody who's looking to step up their video editing skills. For the past four years, I've been using Final Cut Pro and I'm going to be sharing with you how to create amazing videos and edit them. In this program, you're gonna learn things such as how to color grade, how to use amazing effects, masks, tools and so much more. I'm also going to share with you some incredible transitions and effects that some of the most popular YouTubers and creators are using today. 2. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 3 The Final Cut Pro Interface From Scratch A Complete Walkthrough: Hello, everyone, and welcome to our final cut pro 10 tutorial. My name is Joe Paris, the best selling online instructor, and I can't wait to begin teaching you all the ins and outs everything that you need to know to become an expert with final cut Pro. Now I've been editing for years. I started with my movie and now I've turned to final cut. And I am so excited to begin this tutorial. Siri's with you now, Once you open up final cut pro, this is what is going to look like. It's pretty bare. And I want to just walk through with you the complete overview interface here to give you kind of some footing before we go ahead and jump right in. So let's go ahead and get started. As you can see, there are a bunch of different windows. Okay, there's this. Nothing to inspect. Window. There's a window down here and then the bottom. Here you see transitions, and you actually might have this completely done. Or you might have the effects tab open. So if you click on these two little bars here, it will switch between transitions and effects. Okay, so if you click this one its effects, and then you can get rid of it. Effects, transitions. Perfect. Now you can see I have a bunch of transitions that I have personally uploaded. And don't worry, I'll share with you how exactly you can get custom transitions. But for now, just know that this is where you'll be interacting with some of these transitions and using this little panel now it's really need to About all these little windows is you can drag and you can stretch them to make them bigger and smaller. And if you don't like that, you can always bring it back to where you want it to. And what's nice about all these windows is you have that customizable area space so that you can continue to move these up and down around, and it just makes it the workflow for you that much easier. So this is where we're going to start, kind of with the basics here and now. Let's get started with me telling you about what each of these kind of panels and boxes are . So this box right here says nothing to load, and it might be better for me to actually load Something's up here, but just for the basics. This is where your video is going to show up. Now. What that means is is once you actually import your video, this is that main screen. So I normally have this screen pretty big. And then the second little biggest box here that you see, this is where your timeline is going to be. This is where you're going to be making your edits. This is where all your footage is going to be. And it's just really an important part of final cut pro 10. So the next box here is the inspector box. You'll see. There's a lot of different things that will load up in the Inspector and then these two boxes. This is where you're going to import your footage. And this over here is where you're going tohave your events, which are basically folders. And this is where you can kind of organize your footage, and from there we'll get into some more stuff underneath here. You're going to see that I can't click any of this yet because I don't have the footage in there, but this is where you can speed up or slow down, you can customize. You can do cropping. There's a bunch of different fund things that weaken do here with these three options, and then you can push the play button here. You can pause this to see it all come to life. Now, before we actually import our footage, it's time to go and set up our preferences, and that's what we're gonna talk about next. 3. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 4)Setting Up Your Final Cut Pro X Starting Preferences: Alright, guys. So in our last little part there we talked about just really the bare bones of final cut pro. But now let's get into setting up your preferences. The way that you do this is you come up and you click on Final Cut Pro. You then go to Preferences and you click on that. Now, I'm not gonna walk through each and every one of these preferences, but we're gonna first start with the general ones Now, I don't actually touch any of these general preferences the time display. Okay? You could mess around and you can change that. Two frames and seconds. I just leave it as this right here. But you can use H h m m s s f f plus the sub frames, but or you could just do frames or seconds. I just leave all of this alone and we're gonna move on to now the editing. So what's really important is with your timeline showing a detailed trimming feedback. So basically, I have both of these clicked and on because I want to show as much detail as I can, especially when it comes to trimming and the feedback and then also to the positioning of the play had after an edit has been operated on. You'll see this more in the tutorial, but what's really important is that be a little play had on your timeline, and it's important to be able to work with that. But then also skim along. And, yeah, it's easy for me to explain that for you guys once I'm actually doing yet. Another big thing, though, is to show the reference wave forms with audio. This is one of the biggest things and pain points, I would say when it comes to editing, especially when you're editing something where it has sound or music. Or maybe you're talking into a microphone like I am. What's really important is that when you goto edit, there's a lot of times where you want to get too specific sounding moments or specific sounds when it comes to recording. So you want to always show these reference wave forms so that you have this idea of where to make your edits and also continue with the process of editing. So this is a huge thing. I always have this checked on. Another thing that's important is when you import. Still images meaning? Let's say you had a picture that you took out of your camera. Maybe it was Ah, smartphone or an iPhone or something like that when you actually upload that picture and put it into your timeline and try to put it all together. The default time is four seconds that that picture will actually play over the video. Now you can customize this and change it so you can drop it down to three seconds. I just leave it at four seconds. I think four seconds is a very good time. That way you don't just have it for one second, cause that could make it like, very difficult to actually even work with. And then the other thing that's important to you is you can always move these around and customize them. But the next thing that's really important is transition. So we talked a little bit about transitions earlier, but a transition is when you go from one part of your video to the next part and default. Lee Final Cut Pro has this at one second now you can again move this down or up, OK? So you can even customize this by going above and below one second so you can see here with the down arrow won't let me do that, But if I just type in 0.5 I can go ahead and do that. Or is your 0.5 these airways to work around that duration? Or you could just go toe one second and that will work for you now. I also just leave the default correction as color board. I haven't actually played around with many of these things, and for my recommendation, I would just leave this alone. Now let's talk about playback, and there's some things that are really important in play back here that I think is worth mentioning. First off the rendering what's really important. And maybe if you don't understand what rendering is and if your brand new you might not rendering or background render. What this says is basically when you are moving footage and when you're cropping your footage, or maybe you're adding in pictures or you're adding in transitions. What's happening is the computer needs time to kind of make these adjustments, and that's what rendering is. It's kind of like figuring out what you just told the edit to do so. If you're working with very large files for K files, bigger files, When you make these adjustments very quickly, it's hard for the computer to sometimes catch up. This is why you wanna have the background rendering get going here pretty quickly, and I have it starting at the default 0.3 seconds. I think that that's perfect. That way, when you're actually working on your edit down in your timeline. Or maybe, you know, up in some of these windows here, what will happen is is it will start rendering and let's start working so that you can see the results of your edit fairly quickly. The worst thing and the most frustrating things as an editor is to make an adjustment and then have toe wait for the computer to kind of catch up with that. That's why I have the best Mac book pro possible. All the specs, all that kind of stuff. It was pricey, but man doesn't make a difference when it comes to creating an editing videos. Now I just use these two that are checked, marked as default for playback, create optimized media for multi cam clips and then also, if frames drop on VR headset worn after playback, I don't ever really use this. But again, you know that could be helpful if you are dropping frames due to disperse performance or if a frame drops stout the playback and warned, I could see you maybe actually putting these in. But if you're more of a beginner and you know especially to show HDR as raw values, these are some of the things that you're not going to necessarily be worried about. Um, this is more of some advanced topics. Pre roll duration, two seconds. Post roll duration. Two seconds. I think these air very good starting points for both of those and then the player, the player background black. That's totally fine. A V output. I don't have anything in there right now, so that's basically all you need to know for playback. Now, let's go ahead and talk about importing. There are some really big, important things we talk about here. First off, you can see that I have my files leave files in place. Basically, what happens is when you import so basically what I mean by import is let's say you were out with your camera and you are recording a video, and now it comes time to editing. You take the SD card out, you put it in your computer, and then from there you have those files. You want to take those files from your SD card? It's now put them on final cut pro. Well, you do that by importing them from one place onto final Cut pro, whether that's your desktop that you've uploaded or maybe directly from your SD card or potentially ah, hard drive. Now we'll talk about more of that in a little bit. But the main thing is, I highly recommend that you leave these files in place. Now you can and I think by default. Final cut pro has copy to library storage location when that happens. Okay, When this happens up here, you're basically doubling down the library storage, and also your computer storage is going to fill up very quickly. So when you leave your files in place, what that basically means is you're still able to use those files and create using the files. However, you want to keep them in that place. So where this really comes in handy is, let's say you take your footage and you put it on an external hard drive. I have an eight terabyte hard drive because I work with big, big files and I basically really never want to run out of room. So if I leave my files in place, I'm leaving them with the hard drive. Okay, so they're not going to go in my final cut pro library as well as my hard drive, because I'm working with them in that spot. So it's important for you to kind of know that and you'll see if you copy from library storage location and you keep working with lots of lots of files, it'll fill up very quickly, and you'll be like, Why is my computer running on a space? It's because you're copying to the library and trust me, guys, it'll fill up very, very quickly. So this is something very important to know now for keywords you confined from finder tags or from folders. I hardly use any of this, so it's totally fine to have both of these checked off audio rolls. Okay, so assigning a role, you could do that automatically, or you can use any of these options. I just have it on automatic. You can assign I xml track names if available. I have that default. We checked off a swell trans coding. Okay, so you can create optimized media, create proxy media. Okay, so proxy files again are going to when you're actually selecting them to create copies of the media. OK, is going to be a smaller file and faster editing performance. You may want to work with proxy media. Currently, Right now I do not. But for some projects, I actually do. So we'll come to this later, but you don't necessarily have to have this checked off. And if you're using, let's say 7 20 p or you if you you know, using files that you know aren't as big as maybe some of the big Four K ones or just some longer videos, you don't necessarily need to mess with this. So that's kind of my recommendation. Let's continue on with analyze and fix so you can analyze video for balance color, find people these I don't have checked off because I, you know, again like to kind of just see it, how it is for myself and make these kind of adjustments and then also, you can analyze and fix audio problems, automatically separate mono and group stereo audio or remove silent channels. I just leave this alone, and that's really the default here for import again. What's most important is leaving your files in place that way again. And there's this is a preference guy. So this is just my preference, but I do highly recommend leaving your files in place now. Destinations. This is really important to understand as well, in one of the main main really things that I think Final Cut pro has above. Some of the other editing software is is the fact that you can export to YouTube. You can export to video. You can export to Facebook directly from editing. This is amazing because one of the most obnoxious things is rendering a video and then having toe upload it to all these other platforms. So this might not seem like a big deal, but when these files get really heavy, I've had a 454 k video be like 10 or 15 gigs. And if this sounds like a bunch of mumbo jumbo, don't worry about it. Basically What I'm saying is a 4 to 5 minute video with very high resolution can take hours to upload onto YouTube sometimes. So if you just default, Lee, make it and then upload it directly to YouTube. You are literally saving yourself hours, and these options for the destinations work incredibly well. Now the master file is also very important to have. This is something that where you know, no matter what happens, you have that one file that you could always work with. And if you ever want to, you know, down render meeting. Let's say you created a video in four K and then you wanted to move it down to 10 80 p. Well, at least you have that master four k file. So this really comes in handy. And let's talk about some of the resolutions and let the formatting here. So when you format your video, that could be video and audio could just be a video only. So let's say you make an edit and all you want is the video. What? You just go ahead and click on this. Let's say you wanted just the audio. You go ahead and click on that and you might be thinking, Well, why would I ever do that? There's times where I've actually just created audio. And I just want an MP three file, right? Well, it's easy to just upload this to final cut pro Macon audiophile and then go ahead and create it. Now, there's a few other things that I think we should talk about. Two you can publish to Apple devices, your computer Web hosting and then Nxf. I have actually not used a whole variety of these, so we probably won't be going into many of them. But by default, Yes, video and audio. This is what your master file will default to. And I highly suggest having it at that. Now, the video Kodak. Okay, so the resolution All right. If you go all the way up, this is probably the highest resolution for 44 x Q. Okay, now apple Pro rez for 22. The default one is very solid. If you want to move up the chain, you can. But for right now, honestly, the default is most likely good enough. And unless you're doing something completely professional, then I would probably just stick with this again the proxy files, and you can own compress this. But guys just really I think that the apple pro rez for 22 is a great place to stay the resolution. Same is the source. Color space, automatic audio file format. Quick time. I use quick time. Okay, So this is how I'm actually recording this video is with quick time. So it depends upon if you're using quick time or another operating system or something to actually record your video. But the audio file format right now is quick time. So once your master file is complete, you can open it with quick time, or you can actually open it with a few different options. I just have a default as quick time because quick time is incredibly easy to use, and I think it's a great option. So this is really the basics year and some of the default things that I think are really important preferences. And don't worry, we didn't get to some of these other things here, like just exporting your file again. Instead of doing a master file, you could just export a file. You can save a current frame. Um, you know, we'll dive into this a little bit more, but to talk about it briefly, basically, let's say that there's one frame where you want to maybe take a picture of it right where you're just like, Wow, that's a really cool still frame. I want to take a picture of it. You can save the current frame by doing this, and then you can export it as a JPEG or any of these other options. P and G. D. P X. And that way you can actually get a picture from your video. I've actually done this for thumbnails, and this is a great option as another preference year that final cut pro offers. And then you can also add your own destinations so that let's say you wanted to have it go directly to a hard drive or let's say you wanted it to go to a specific folder. You would go ahead and click the add destination spot, and you can add your destination there as well. Let's go ahead now and get started, actually importing our footage, setting up final cut pro. And now that we've kind of discussed the preferences, let's get in there and start working. I can't wait to see you guys in our next video. Stay tuned 4. 1512 JoeParys Final Cut Pro X Project: Hello and welcome to our complete final cut Pro course. My name is Joe Paris. I'm gonna be your instructor. And in this video, I want to go through quickly what you can actually learn in this course what you're going to get And then also when I talk to you about our class project. So as you can see here, this is final cut pro, and I'm actually creating a little project myself. This is going to go on my social media and final cut. Pro and video editing in general is really amazing for social media. Whether it's instagram, whether it's YouTube, whatever it might be today social media is at the heart of everything. And if you're looking to up your social media game or maybe just create some sort of content for maybe friends and family, final cut pro is going to be awesome for you and this course going to be awesome for you as well. So what is our class project Where our class projects going to be creating a video of your choosing? OK, so as you can see here, this is a nice little promotional video for my business and my brand and this is just uses a demonstration. But it's only a couple minutes long, and your project is going to be learning all of the essentials here and final cut pro. Even at the end, you're going to use that skill set that that framework that you've learned in this course and you're going to build some sort of miniature video like this. And I'm gonna walk you through all of the steps in this course so that you completely understand it. Alright, guys, let's dive right into our next video. I can't wait to see you there. 5. 5) How To Import Midea FCP 2020: alright, guys. So now that we've talked about, some of the preference is kind of a basic overview. Let's go ahead now and dive into actually setting up final cut pro. And there are three things that I think are really important that I'm going to be discussing with you. The 1st 1 is libraries. The second thing is projects, and then the third our events, these three things are going to appear multiple times in your workflow and when you actually begin editing, so let's go ahead and get started. I'm going to go ahead first often click on the file tab and then we're going to go to new and library. If you're brand new to final cut pro, you have to first create a library. Once you do that, you can save it as whatever you want. A title it and then where? So I'm just going to save this to my desktop. But you could also save this to ah, hard drive. You can save it to a fold there. They're a bunch of different options here. If you click on this, you can see I have a hard drive, other folders and then other recent places for some of the other projects that I've done. I'm just going to say with the desktop and let's just title this demo now I can go ahead and add tags to if I wanted to, but I'm not going to. I'm gonna go ahead and click Save now Once I say if you see that my library properties have now opened up. So I have things in my inspector. I have this new project button. I have this import media and now let's go ahead and get started importing some media, and I'm just going to go ahead and click on this down arrow. You can also click and drag in, but I almost always click on this arrow or almost always click on this arrow. So there are a few things that we have to know. First, though, before we actually start importing our footage and you can see here I have my first event. I'm kind of skipping around a little bit here, so let's go into our project when I click on Project. This is what's going to be appearing in your timeline. Okay, so the first thing that we did is you create a library. Basically, that library is it Keeps everything under one roof. So you're in your library, You're gonna have your projects and events. And yeah, that library keeps it all under one roof. Now I'm going to go ahead entitled this project. So let's just go ahead and title this demo Four Final cut pro tutorial. There we go. Now, this is the event that it's in so you can see here a default. Lee added the event as today's date so I can go ahead and just have all of the project information. And also just be working in this project for in this event, you'll see what this looks like here in a second. But you can also change it around if you create other events. But since I only have one event since it defaulted to this word is going to use this start time code. Is that zeros? Video? Okay, so here's where you can change your video format so you can do 10. 80 p 10 80 I. So I normally just do 10. 80 p. And yet you can change the frame rate here and we'll talk about the frame rate. This is important so the higher the frame rate, basically what that means is you're able to slow down your footage mawr, and it's also makes your footage look smoother. So the lower the frame rate, the more cinematic and kind of slow drawn out your footage can look so you can see here for an example purpose. If we're watching a cartoon with a lot of fast stuff moving around, we wouldn't probably be using a slower frame rate we probably be using, Ah, higher one. Now, if we're watching a movie introduction, maybe we're in the forest or something like that. We're being introduced to the movie, then, yes, a slower frame rate will look more cinematic. So let's go ahead and do 24 p for right now and then the Apple Pro rez for 22. We're gonna let that stand, and you can always come back and change this. Don't worry. And the audio we do stereo you can do surround. I just leave it at stereo and then once everything looks great, we're just going to go ahead and click. OK, now we have a few more changes, and here's what they are you can see now here is my project, OK? And now I can start importing and adding things down below to my timeline. So you can see now it's waiting for footage, alright. And within my project here. OK, I have something called events. So an event is essentially a folder. Basically, it's where you could import your footage and the way that you create mawr events. The easiest way for me personally as I just right click and then I create a new event. You can also create a new project, a new folder, and you can continue adding on using mawr of these options. But let's go ahead and create a new event. You'll see here that it asked me for the event name also, they're kind of fun stuff, so I'm just going to do new one. I'm gonna leave everything the same. I'm gonna go ahead and click, OK, now you can see here Now I have new one and I also have this other event 3-11 dash 18 which is today's date. And I'm just gonna go ahead now and go ahead and upload. And what I mean by upload is import footage and then you're going to see exactly what this looks like. Here's how you import footage. First, you can do it a few different ways. You can click on this arrow here, which is import media, or if you were to go back here, there was that import media earlier. But you can also just click and drag into final cut pro. I always just used this drop down arrow, and here's now what happens by default. It's going to my desktop, but I can also import footage from my eight terabyte hard drive. You can also do it from your Macintosh. You can do it from your home. You can do it from really a few different devices if you have plugged in wherever you want to. But for today's example, we're just gonna go right off of my desktop, and we're actually going to use some footage from some vlogs that I did and some log previews of my course. So I'm going to go ahead and copy these three, and I only did which click and hit shift to highlight thes. You could just do one at a time, but I want to do all three. I want import all of these. And now it's going to ask you should I add this to an existing event? So New one, This is the event that I want to add it to because you can see over here. It's highlighted, but I wanted to add it to 3 11 18 I can add it to that one. Let's just do it to new one. You can also create a new event in the library. So let's say I didn't want to use either of these, but I wanted to create a new event. I could go ahead and use this option, but for us right now, we want to do new one again. The files were gonna leave them in place, keywords, all that kind of stuff. I just use this, you know, Basically, we're gonna use it automatically. Let's go ahead and import it once I import it. You can see now that I have my footage and I'm gonna go ahead and mute my footage because you could hear at a little bit with skimming and you can see now that it's imported. OK, So as you can see now, final cut pro has imported my footage fairly quickly and That's the amazing thing about while one my computer is fairly fast, but also having final cut pro render in the background and really get that footage moving fast so that you can begin using it. And that's exactly what we want to do next. So that's how you import your footage. And in our next videos, I'm going to share with you how to begin taking that footage and working with it and making edits. 6. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 6)Basic Video Edits With Your Imported Footage: All right, guys, What's up? Welcome back in this video, we're gonna begin editing our footage that we just imported. So let's go ahead and get started. Now, there's a few things that I want to point to and actually bring your attention to before we start doing that. As you can see, these are my videos. OK, so I have three videos, and if I click, what will happen is the box here in yellow will highlight the entire video. And you can see here that within that video there's this play had line that I'm moving back and forth And what I'm moving this back and forth. It's skimming through the video. Okay. So I can skim through and see. Okay, there's different parts here. Maybe I just want this part right. I can start there. Well, if I wanted to start there, I can just click and it will snap to that part. Okay. Now, also, if I click away, click down, it'll take off that yellow bar. And now I can just go ahead and click in drag, and then it's gonna create the yellow box again. But now I can go forwards and backwards, selecting select clips. This is how I actually grab. Let's say I just want to grab this little bit and I can go ahead then and once it's completely let go, my mouse, I congrats it with the hand grabber and drag and drop it down to my timeline. Now, as you can see, I have now my very first clip on my timeline. And if I go ahead and push the space bar, this will actually play the video and you'll see here, this is my play head. The play had shares with you where exactly you're at on the little clip down low, and then you can see the wave forms here by default have come up this way. You can actually hear if I turn my sound back on so you could hear that said section floor , Section four. Sorry, can't talk. Blogging advanced. This is great. So if I wanted to actually cut the clip there, I could cut it there. Another thing that can be a little annoying at times, but also very helpful is the audio skimming. So if I go back and forth from the clip, you can hear that I'm skimming through the audio. Another thing, too, is you can hear it from appear. OK, so that's what the audio skimming is. And these are just some of the basic stuff. Now, let's go ahead and go up and turn my sound off here for just a second. What If you want to see the wave forms, though, here before you start actually making adjustments down in your timeline because it's really important to start editing up here before you start bringing it down to your timeline. And you can see this video here is right around two or three minutes long. But if I wanted to grab just a little piece of this, that might be fairly difficult, because I would have to kind of just really get in here. And, you know, you know, here's like, you know Ah, second or two, right? Like what if I want to get in just like half of a second, though it could be quite a struggle if I do this another way. So I'm gonna go ahead and share with you. This top bar is very, very important. If you click here on this little film strip, what will happen is is with this first line here, you'll see that I'm making the clips bigger or smaller. Okay, so now I can really get in there if I want to. Or if I want to make a very, very small now, they'll be smaller so I can have a bunch of different videos within that little area, so I actually like to make it a little bit bigger, and then you can see right now we have 32nd little groupings. Okay, so if I go a few notches up, you can see now it's by every two seconds. Five seconds. 10 seconds. Let's try 10 seconds. So now you can really get in here. And it made these videos bigger, but they're actually the same size. But you can really get in here and tinker with Oh, I really want just like 00.2 seconds of this video. So that's extremely helpful and useful. Teoh, use these sliders. And if you want them to be 10 minutes, even 30 minutes are all like the entire video. That's what you can do. And I like to have it. The sweet spot, I think, is 30 seconds. That's a good spot. But even 10 seconds is great and you can group by, You know, the date. A bunch of different options here. You can also sort by content created, Um, you know, when you actually created the content ascending or descending the name that take the duration. There's a bunch of different ways, and this could be helpful in organizing. You can also then click wave forms. If you click wave forms now you can see the audio wave forms in your clip. This is extremely important because when I go to make edits, you can see there's Big Gap sometimes, right? So and this is a big gap. I know that there's no audio here. Well, maybe I just want to start with section two. This is so much easier than actually trying to listen to the entire two minutes here or whatever it may be. I just know by sight now, since there is that big audio gap that Bang Aiken, just grab this and then that and jog it, you know, drag and drop it down if I want to use that. And now I have these two clips together, starting with, you know, let's say, went from Section four a little bit and then boom, it goes to section two. So if we go back into this, that is extremely important. I always have my wave forms up there. Then we have the continuous playback. Okay, so you can continuously have this playback. I do not personally. The wave forms is very important to the night. Is tinker with this a little bit as well. You can also click on this magnifier to search for the specific video. But I very rarely ever used this. I kind of just scroll up and down and I begin working and finding the different parts that I actually want to work with. So that's how you can kind of get started dragging and dropping your footage onto your timeline. And now, in our next set of videos, we're going to get started, really making some awesome edits, using all the information and videos that we have. And I can't wait to share with you more about final cut pro in our next video's stay tuned guys, I'll see you very soon. 7. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 7)Final Cut Pro X Essential Keyboard Shortcuts: Hey, guys, what's going on? Joe Paris back with you here for another final cut Pro 10 tutorial. And in this video, we're gonna go through Ah, lot of different keyboard shortcuts. Now, I actually have a pdf link for you to actually see all of these. I'll put that in the description below, but I want to walk through a lot of the ones that I kind of use and then give you a few different options. I don't want to just do like so many of these just kind of the basic ones. But let's go ahead and get started now by keyboard commands. I mean, when you have your mouse over something like your footage here, what you can do is just type a key on the keyboard and that will perform a command. So let me walk you through this and we'll actually do some examples together. So the first thing that I want to teach you are the i, the O and the cuchi. So the eye on your keyboard, the O and the Q the I sets your in point. Okay, so I for in oh, for while outpoint or oh, okay. And then Q kind of connects everything in it puts it down on our timeline. So if we're working in our project window here, let's say I want to start right there, right when it cuts to this clip, I can click the I key and you'll see now I have that yellow box. Now let's say I wanted to go ahead and drag and I want to stop it right there. Okay, Perfect. While when I'm done, I can click the okey. And now that box has finished. Okay, You can see now that I have that clip. Now, if I click on the cuchi, you know, drop it to where the play had is so you can see the play head is at the middle spot here. There's actually some blank space. So let's go ahead and move the play head right about here. And I'm gonna go ahead and click que Now you can see, since my play head was kind of on top there, it went right to exactly where I had the play had and it dropped it down nice and easy. This is a great shortcut and a great combination to use when you're doing these short con combination keyboard commands with final Cut Pro. Let's go ahead and dive into a few more examples and another key that will actually move your footage from the Projects panel here. To the storyline, timeline is the W key. OK, and the w key Again, we'll go right with the play. Had ghosts all do the w in an edit moves everything down as well. You get this blank black space here which you can delete, and then that is another option for you when it comes to grabbing your footage. Now the I in the okey is great. So if I just click the I key again, you can see that it highlights everything and then you have to give it an end point, though with the oh, so I use these all the time and when you do is you know I o w right, like how quick and easy was that to grab that clip and bring it down. Now, if I want to also click the e key on my keyboard, this will in sort the clip at the end of my story lines. Let's go ahead and do an example will do. I owe here and then we'll click E. Now use notice, though. If I reverse this by doing Command Z that my play had, let's say it was in the middle of these two clips or in the middle of this clip. If I go ahead and click the E Key, though, it will automatically bring it to the end instead of going right in the middle here, like the Q and the like, the Cuchi will. So the difference is watch if I go here and I go to Q right so que Now it brings it right over the top, right, whereas the difference now if I click the same clip, same here with the play had, but I go double you, it'll drop it in between the two clips there. So that's the main differentiation between the cue, the W and the E Key. So they each do something different, and I thought it was important to share with you and show that with you. Now there's one more letter command keyboard key that I want to share with you, and that is the D key. So I go ahead and click the D Key that will also as the play had puts here, it will override the footage at the play had and insert the new footage. It's very similar to the W and Q keys, but I also wanted to share with you that option. Now there are a few other options and keyboard command that I really want to share with you that are really important. And that is the command shift Z okay, and that is the redo option. And then the Command Z is the undue. So if I just did that, that undid that last clip command shift, dizzy now that will redo it. So let's try that again. We do Command Z. That's undue command shift Z. That's redo. This will come in handy a lot, especially when you're making adjustments. And maybe you accidentally delete something like if I accidentally just hit the delete key . That's another keyboard command. If you want to get rid of a clip, you just click delete. But now if I go command Z Command Z, that will then undo those two mistakes, or should I say deletes? And that way I don't have to go back in and try and find that footage somewhere in my project or somewhere in here that could be extremely tedious. Another keyboard command that is very, very important is the Beaky, which stands for Blade. Okay. And the blade key in your story line here. If I click be as an example, you'll see. Now I have this kind of razor blade. And from here, if I don't do anything else but click on my mouse, it'll actually make a blade or a clip incision there. Okay. So you can see I've now split that clip into two. If I continue to keep clicking, I continue to make these blade cuts. Okay. Now, if I wanted to again undo these, it's just command Z. And then we have it back to their But as you can see, what if I want to get rid of this blade tool? Right? Like maybe I'm done using the blade tool. The best way to get back to your arrow key is just to click the letter A and that will give you the regular arrow that you can move around for your timeline and clips and everything else If you click be okay. You'll see here too, that you've begun the blade tool. See how it goes on from a gives you that arrow and then be it gives you the blade tool. That way, you know that you're actually using one or the other when you click on these keyboard commands now some or keyboard commands that are incredibly important. As I get into my little arrow. Here is what If you want to make a little blade at it, tool and zoom in to your story line or timeline Here, the command and plus key will let you do this. Or if you just click the letter Z, you'll see that you have this magnifying glass. Now, if I take this magnifying glass and click with my mouse, you'll see that the timeline is getting bigger. The clips are getting bigger. This is because I'm zooming in on that clip so that I can get in here and maybe use my blade tool. Make a little, you know, incision. Maybe I want to just cut this out and then I go to my arrow and I Congrats that and delete it. Oh, maybe I don't want to do that Psycho Command Z. Now you can see if I want you know, do everything back to normal. See how much easier that was when using these commands with your keyboard. It's incredibly important that you kind of learn some of these because you're gonna save yourself so much time. It takes some time to get used to, but once you get it, it really makes the world's difference in editing. Now, if you want to zoom out, you can also do command and then the minus sign and that will zoom out of your timeline. You can see now it's completely zoomed out and again you could just hit Z and click in okay or you can hit command and the plus sign to zoom in as well. So those air, the zooming options we're now going to zoom out, and the next kind of keyboard command that I'm actually going to share with you is the set Mark. Okay, that's what the M stands for. So if I'm down here in my timeline and I click em, you can see now it gives me this arrow. That's a marker that I've set for myself. And let's say I wanted to do another marker here. Okay, maybe there's a specific time where I need to, you know, sink it to the music, right? Or I need to be aware of. Hey, this is an important moment of the video. Make sure to mark this. Okay? That's why the M and Marker could be very, very important. And this is why you would use it. Do I use the marker very often? Not really. But I just wanted to share this with you because it is important if you wanted to enable snapping or disable snapping right now, I do not have the snapping on. You can see. I can nicely go back and forth between these clips. And it's not going room right to the next clip by snapping. Okay, If you want to snap, click the n key and now watch it will snap. See how we're getting that snap. And then I go, go, go and boom, it snaps right over there. And if I want that on, I just click the end. And if I don't want it on, I clicked the end again. And now you can see I can nicely move through back and forth another really important keyboard command that I use all the time, and it's almost by default. Is these space bar okay? The space bar plays clips from where the play had is at. So if I'm here, okay, it's going to automatically with my other play had adjust to where I want to have that be or if I just take the play head okay and I drag it, Let's say to the beginning and I pushed the space bar. It's now going to start playing and you can see now that we're playing and it's going And here's the time, right below the project window. And should I say the preview window, This is our preview window that shows us everything here as well. So the space bar starts and also stops. So there you go. I just stopped and let's say I want to go here. Boom. I could hit the space bar again, and it jumps right to that point. Now, what if I want to detach the audio from this clip? As you can see here, this clip, if I were to move it around, has the audio attached to it. If I want to, you simply detach the audio I can right click and detach the audio. Okay, now there's two separate things here the video and the audio, and you'll have this little mark here and I'll zoom in a little bit for you. But you can see now that I can move the audio around and it gives me a specific spot for me to do that. Now let's say I undo all of this and now it's back to connected and you know it's connected because of the yellow boxes around both. Now, if I wanted to simply detach the audio clicking control shift and s will absolutely do that for you. So control shift and s. There you go. You now see that these two clips, the audio is now detached. And if I do command Z now, they're back because I just undid that option. Another really important keyboard command that's helpful. Is your shift see? Crop shot? Okay, so if I do a shift plus C, that will now in my preview window here, bring up these little arrows and this kind of slash dotted line across my video, and I have a bunch of different options which will talk about here in a little bit. You can trim you can crop, you can do something called Ken Burns. Ken Burns. Basically, it starts you at a point and then ends you in another point, and it kind of gives you this zoom in effect so we won't talk about that just quite yet. But I thought it be important because these are the three options now. Crap. Why would you crap and you know what are the benefits? So let's say I treat these arrows here and let's just say I don't want any of this below. I just want this picture. Well, I can use the shift see to begin cropping. And then, if that's all I want, I can just hit enter to have it crop or I can simply click done, and now you can see the video has been cropped. This is incredibly useful because there's times where you don't want the whole screen. Or maybe you've recorded the screen. And maybe there's like you, RL's or different kind of websites and things that you don't want people to see. You just want them to focus. The crop tool is incredibly helpful for that, so let's go ahead and undo that. We got our clip back and I want to talk to you about command plus six. This is going to in our inspector bring up something called color correction. So if I do command and six, you can now see over in my inspector here Color correction. So if you're new to color correction, basically, what you can do is really a lot of different things. OK, you can take a This is the amateur version of this. But let's say I have this down here this video and I wanted to make it a little bit warmer or colder. I can play with these dots here, okay. And each one of these dots represent something. So this dot represents shadows and that is highlighted in our box here. The middle one is mid tones. Okay. And then the last one is your highlight. So if I take my highlights and I boost him up, you can see that the whole video is becoming a tinted blue. And if I bring it down, okay, now it's becoming warmer, and it's getting to be a lighter color. It's almost a greenish color. Okay, now let's say you're playing around here is like, who is like the colors of the rainbow now, right, These are your highlights. So if I just go ahead and let go, maybe I'll do command Z to get it back to place. Now we're back to the original place and we're back to our original footage. The next one hit in mid tones. Okay, so if I boost this up and back again, you're seeing the color move around and get warmer or colder, and we're playing with some of the mid tones here. And then the last thing here is the shadows. OK, so you can see there at the top. Um, I'm the shadow behind me with the video here, so this shadow right here is going to get lighter and darker. See how now? Getting lighter as I move that way up and is getting darker as I move it down. They were getting into that red kind of area again and playing with ease. So there does come time here. And if I get out of that and undo Okay. Now, here's the master. All right. So the master kind of plays with everything at once, and you can really see a lot of different movements here and doing some pretty amazing color grading guys. This is just the beginning to color grading and just want to kind of share with you some of the basics there. But if you go ahead and you use the keyboard command six, it will automatically pop the color correction into your inspector, making it incredibly easy toe work with. So if you want to actually apply this color grading to all of your other clips, here's how you do it. First you want to take your clip and do command see for copy. Then you want to do command option plus V to all of the other clips. So if I do command plus option and then I click V on this clip, OK, so we'll do command option V. You can now see that that color correction has helped and has come through on that clip. Now I can go to the next clip here, Command Option V. The important thing is, is you have this yellow box around the clip that you want to add whatever the effect is that you're doing, so its color grading. Or maybe you've done some other effects. Command option V is going to allow you this. These are some of the keyboard commands, and I use personally there are many Mawr, but these air really the basic ones, and I think these are incredibly helpful. So hopefully this has been a great little starter pack tutorial for you guys, and hopefully you've enjoyed kind of learning more about thes keyboard commands. We're going to make your life so much easier when it comes The editing with final Cut Pro I look forward to teaching guys in our next video's stay tuned. 8. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 8)Final Cut Pro X Basic Tools: Okay, so now we're gonna play around with a few other options with final cut pro. And the first thing I want to share with you is if you actually click on this little down arrow, you can see the different types of tools that we can use. And a lot of these I went through with our keyboard commands. However, each one of these kind of has a little different option to it, and I think it's important to understand that. So if we go ahead, A is our select. Okay, so this is kind of our default, and it's our little mouse here. Okay, So, uh, a is for arrow. That's what we want to stand for. For the most part, when we're doing our edits now again, there's always exceptions to this. So let's just keep moving forward. T is trim. Okay, So if I want to trim clips, Okay, If I click on this clip, you'll see that I can click and drag back and forth. Now, here are some important numbers to know the first numbers here. The 09 on the left side. That stands for how long the clip is. It's nine seconds and then I'm moving it back. Frame by frame. So now it's 15 14 13 12 11 nine frames. Okay, now, if I were to move it forward, okay? Those air, What those two numbers mean there. Now the same thing here with this plus 1 13 I moved it plus one second forward and then 13 frames forward. 14 frames and I go even Mauritz like now it's eight seconds forward. Okay, so this is the trim, and this allows you to trim back and forth. Now, if I also click here, Okay, you can see that I'm clicking and dragging and moving the entire clip from that position. So let's say I wanted to really kind of scrub through this a little bit, right? And go there like my want to go right there. I can then use my beer blade tool. Clip that and then make that kind of the spot where I want to start. So the tea or trim OK can do this for you. And it's very easy than to kind of move in and out of those clips just by clicking and dragging and moving around. So we're gonna go ahead and undo all of that just because it was fun. But so we want There we go. Excellent. Now let's continue on. And the positioning is P. Okay, so now I have this positioning key. And basically, what this means is if I click on this clip and I'm grabbing and taking the entire clip with me, okay? It's positioning this from here to there to ever I want to position it. Okay, So really, what you're doing with the positioning is you're able to move the clips around and position them over the top of each other and that way again, you can kind of go back and forth, see if I take this clip. I'm going all the way to the front. It's going to position it in between these two clips. So let's undo a bunch of this because I didn't want to actually make all of those little edits. But that's what the positioning key can kind of do for you. Another tool that you can use is the are or range selection tool. If I go ahead and click on this orders click are I can now select in between these clips or any of these clips this certain range. Now, if I have the aero key, you can see I can't do that. It grabs the entire clip. But if I click are right, I can go ahead and grab in and make a certain range. This is very important because let's say I just want to take this and, you know, maybe just delete that out of there, right? Undo that now. But that can be super helpful compared to making the a key. And that may be doing a blade and trying to blade it and then a and delete it. I could just go ahead and I know moving pretty quick here. But if I click the R key for my range, I can then just grab that little bit and then click and delete it without having to blade twice and do that. The next thing that is important and you have shown you a little bit earlier, is the blade tool. This is where you can click the letter B, and there's make these little chopped at its. And if you don't click any of the other keys like an A, you're just continue to make thes chops, and that might not be good. If you're trying to like movies around and delete thes, remember to click that a key so that you could begin working with these or any of the other tools. Let's go ahead and remove all those little bleed incisions that I just made to get us back to where we want to go. Now let's continue on with some of the more tools here. The Z zoom tool and the H the hand tool. So the hand here. Okay, you can click and grab and actually move the timeline kind of up and down there as you're seeing. You can also use the hand to kind of move left to right and grab the entire time line if you want to, and kind of just shift it up and down. This is why I would use the hand tool, and that's really all you can do with it. Those are the tool options here, and I look forward to teaching you guys more options, more things with final cut pro, and I can't wait to see you in our next tutorials and videos 9. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 9)Sound Effects, Music, and Text: Hey, guys, what's going on? Welcome back, Joe Paris with you. And in this video, we're gonna get into some of them or fun things when it comes The editing with final cut pro I know in our last videos, we kind of just went through kind of the import process, how to import your video and then drag it down to the timeline. Some of the ways to actually, you know, grab and drag and drop and all that kind of fun stuff. And now I think it's really important, though, that we talk about how to add music, how to add pictures, how to add some of these basic things that you're going to want to use in your edits. So let's go ahead and do that on their turn. The sound off. There we go. And if you click on this little music tab here, this is where you can use iTunes, GarageBand and different sound effects. Now there might be, and there normally is by default. Aitana. Different sound effects. Turn this back on. So if I click on the baseball bat here, Gay has the bad dropping with click number two. So that's I get actually hits, and you can use these in your edits. Now, you can see there are quite a lot of different sound effects that we have here. And let's just try, like switch three or telephone okay. Or telephone 10. Okay. So you could really get lost in playing around with a lot of these. Or maybe Bergdahl. Okay, so some of these air Ah, pretty entertaining, to say the least. And, yeah, there's a bunch of these that come pre installed so kind of fund add sound effects. And if you wanted to actually add a sound effect, let's say we want add this Klink, right? Actually, I don't like that. Let's try the door close. Okay? If I wanted to add this, I could just go ahead and click on it, okay? And I normally guys just drag and then I just drop it. Okay, so I'm bringing this below, okay? And you can see there's some effects here that says effects as the, um, the words. Now if I just let go. There we go. OK, I have that in there. Now, let's say because I have music and audio here, it might be hard to actually just hear the effect. So let me go ahead and play this so you can hear me talking. And then there's that clanking now. Way to get rid of this music is you can see if I hover over this line, I can adjust the volume. Okay, so I can make it go higher. And you can see now it went lighter. There was this yellow and it went up. Okay, That means it's gonna be a louder if I bring it down. Okay, So the decibels air now with negative. And then I go all the way down to zero infinity. That means it turned it off completely. Another way you can get rid of your audio is just simply click on it. Okay, highlight it. All right. So I just click and highlight it. You can then hit, delete and old delete, or you can just right click on it, Okay? And you can disable it. And you can also just detach the audio that way. Once is detached, you can simply click on just the audio and go ahead and click the backspace or delete tab. Now, let's say you made a mistake and this is important too. And you don't and you want to get that back and say, I want that audio back You can hit Command Z, and that will bring your last mistake done. So you also have these at its undo or redo. You can simply click the edit tab here, and then you can click, undo or redo. You can do a redo with the shift Command Z or you could undo with just Command Z itself. Now, if you're using a different type of computer, it might be different for you. But those are the basic keyboard commands, so let's go ahead and get rid of this. And I just want to hear the sound effects. So if I go ahead and play this, there's my sound effect. OK, so that's how you add in a sound effect. You drag and drop it, and you can see that whenever I'm kind of scrolling with my play head here. I'm sorry the secondary play had It's kind of snapping okay to a bunch of these different time spaces. Okay, so you can turn your snapping on and off by clicking here. This is the snapping tool. Okay, so if you don't want it to go from here to snap right to that exact point. All you have to do is click this on and off, and you can see now. It's not exactly snapping to these points. I can kind of nice and move closer to it. I like to have the snap on personally as an editor, but that is something that you can deal with on your own. So that's how you add in sound effects. And let's say you had iTunes right and you had maybe a whole song that you wanted to add. I'm not sure. Ah, you know, there's a bunch of different songs that you can have here, but if you wanted to take it, you can just go ahead here and I'm gonna turn my sound off. You can click and drag the entire song down and you can see it says music. Okay, so there's even this little panel here from you Let go now I can have my sound effects underneath my music down here, and then I can even overlay that with the default audio that's coming from the clip. This is great because now it's all separate. It's not like mashing together if I ever want to get rid of may be just the effect or maybe just the audio here. This is a great way to work with and separate the different audio's, and you can see the different layers here. So that's how you can work with that. Also, you have GarageBand. I don't use GarageBand personally, but if you did, you could go ahead and add in your garage band tracks or whatever the little shorts are or whatever the music is that you've created with garage band, and you could add it in there. Now, we're gonna go ahead and talk about this next little T here, and this is our titles. Okay, that's our titles tab. And if you go ahead, we have our titles. Okay, we have our generators. This is probably how it looks by default for you. I had the titles open, and here are the basic default titles that come with final cut pro. So you can see here. Here's the 3 60 basic three D Okay, and if you hover over with your mouse, you can see it. It's giving us an example in the window screen here, so if I hover here and I clicked the space bar. It will automatically just begin. And I didn't click that the right way. There we go. If I go ahead and click the space bar, it'll automatically give us a nice play there. And then it will show us an example, and it will loop the entire transition. Or should I say title? So if you wanted to actually see what some of these do, that's how you do it Before you would even use the title. Now you can see here my different titles. I have something called an adjustment layer. This is essential when it comes to editing. But this is a plug in that I highly recommend that you guys take advantage of and I'll be sharing with you, Maura, about adjustment layers as we continue on with the tutorial. But for right now, you might not be seeing an adjustment layer in your titles. That's okay. You might just be seeing a lot of these default basic titles Boogie lights, all these different, you know, the far far away one and yeah, so you might not see all the different titles I have because this one here the MW Wigley text. This was another plug in from a gentleman named Mark Webster, and he gave away these plug ins for free. So there are just a few different plug in text that I have that you guys might not. Now, let's go ahead and actually use one of these titles. Let's say I wanted to do the boogie lights. Well, how would I actually begin using this title in my clip? What I would do is I would click on it, okay? And I would drag and drop. Okay? And you can see now it creates this title that says B oo that stands for Boogie Lights. OK, it's by default. Now, if I let go, you can see it's going to start the title right here in that section of the clip. Now, what also has come up is our inspector. Okay, so here's a few things that are really important with the text, and I'll go through as many of these as I can. The first little bar up here is your different formats and also the different styles. Okay, so you can see here I have a two d style of three D style Okay, Uh, you know, the same format. Save appearance. Attributes. All right, so let's go ahead and let's just do Ah, let's do chrome. Okay, that looks kind of fun right now. If I go ahead and click on the text here, this is the spot where I actually add in the text. So let's do add in text. Okay? Now, why isn't it showing up on my screen? The reason wise. So I don't have the play had over the text. There it is. Okay, so if you have your play had start right at the beginning here, OK? It's not going to show it. You need to have it go a little bit in. Okay, So I'm gonna go a frame or two in there, and now it says, add in text, right? Pretty cool. Now, if I wanted bigger, I could just drag it up to their or I can add in a custom amounts. If I want to keep going, I could make it even bigger than that. Or I can drag it down here to make it very, very small. And now you can't really even see it. So we'll make it back to right about there. Your alignment? Pretty basic. If I click here, it'll go to the right. If I click to the middle, it'll center it. If I click here, go left. And then there's a few more adjustments that you could make their the vertical alignment. Okay, so you can play around with this, and it will line everything vertically. The line spacing If I go ahead and move this around, okay. It'll play with spacing. I don't want to do that. I'm going to get out of there tracking, okay? I don't ever really pill you with this position. Okay? So there's different positions that we can have, and also, you can rotate. Okay. So you can rotate this. But here's some really And, you know, there's so many more options here, guys, you could animate. You can do all these different things. You could make a three d, so I'm not gonna make it three D. Okay, so now you can't even really see it. Now I do make it three d. Okay, so there's lighting environment, others intensity. Right? So if I slide this up and down, it makes it more intense or lessen tests, and that's you know, a little bit harder to see. So if I want to just undo that, make it there. OK, so here's the material. It's chrome rights. If I click on this, you know, a new plastic weaken. Do you know? You know, fabric, right? We could make a plaid. Okay, so, um, you can see now it's that plaid, right? We can do paint. Okay, Maybe it's like glitter cool. So there's a bunch of different little things that we can do here, and some text allow you to really customize them. Others don't go into this much depth. So maybe this is a good example. It's not. But there's a few other options here that I think are really important. And I think what's really important, even Mawr is Let's say I don't want this text in the middle. Let's say I wanted in the corner, right. Well, I can position it, okay. Using the different positioning here, right. And I can type in different coordinates, but that could be kind of obnoxious. So what I normally do as I click this, okay? And it gives me now this little rotating circle and these dots and points that I can use. Okay, so this is important. But also to If I click on this down here, I can transform my text. Now what's amazing about transforming your text is if I click on this now, I ca ndrangheta anywhere I want on the screen. You see the positioning. How, when I click and drag this where it's giving me the different positions. I could do that manually, or I could just transform it and click and drag it. This is so much easier. Another thing that's great about transforming is when I click this click here or here, it's going to adjust the size. Okay, that's amazing. All right, so let's say I wanted to add in the text to the bottom corner here. Let's make it a little smaller. Perfect and done right? Done, done. Done. Make sure, though you click Done. All right now, I didn't go through all the different things that we can do here. You can distort, you can transform. You can also use these blend modes. Personally, I don't use these very often, but this is definitely an option that you can use here. And there's a bunch of different options within the blend modes when you transform. Okay, so if I go ahead and transform this again, I have it on. But now if it's off right, you can see now I can't click and drag this around. But if I click transform again, I'll be able to click and drag this when I also go ahead and click transformed down here. Okay, so you can also transform Crop Distort, stabilize. And this is again, though we're not on our text. So if I go ahead and click on our text, this is what our main text is going to be. And this is where now I can actually move this around and use all these different options in my inspector. So that's what's so important and kind of just some of the basics toe adding text using music. And I look forward to teaching UME or in our next video's stay tuned 10. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 10)How To Add Transitions: Hey, guys, what's going on? Welcome back, Joe Paris with you for another final cut pro tutorial. And in this tutorial, we're gonna talk about transitions. That's right. Transition's gonna go ahead. Leave my play head here that way. Ah, you can have something in the background to kind of look at when I look at these transitions and let's go ahead and get started so you might not see all these different transitions there. I have it here, all of them. Okay, if I click all now, you know, you might be thinking, What's a three D loom? A fade white? What is that? What's a You know, three D luna flayed fade black. Well, these are transitions that you can create on your own or also people have created, and you can download them and pay for them, and some people have them for free. So there's a bunch of different way to get transitions, and I'll share with you. Hajto exactly do that a little bit later. But for right now, let's go ahead and just actually use some of these transitions Now. One, you do a transition. It's important to not overdo it. And so let's go ahead and start at the very beginning of my video. Let's dissolve in. What I want to do is click on this dissolve and what's really need is if you just kind of scroll over with your arrow, you can see what this is going to look like. It goes from the trees to the ocean. Or I think it's the lake. So trees lakes of on the grab and drop this. You could see now that it is giving me this kind of gray box. I take the gray box and I put it in front of the clip, and now my screen is black. Why is it black? Because I've now added this transition. And if I go ahead and play this using the space bar, it'll fade in. So you can see now that that has faded in now, what if I want to make that a little bit longer? Cause this is, well, a pretty easy quick fade in. If I click and drag this okay, this will make the transition longer and bigger. If I make it to make it smaller, I just drag it the opposite direction. Bigger, smaller, So let's make it really long here just to really draw this out and you can see how it's still going. And now OK, so it really has this, you know, for uh, let's three. Let's say here. Yeah, three seconds. OK, this transition, that's how long it is. And you can see that by the three colon to zero. And then I can add and fade that that way. So this is how you use transitions. And here's why. You would want to use the transition. Let's say it goes from this to another shop, right? You can see it's like this white screen and then it's me. Well, maybe it would look better if I did. You know, a cross dissolve trick clicked and dragged that over. So goes here, and then it dissolves nicely into that next video so you can see how nicely that kind of looks too nice. Transition a little bit easier on the eyes, and you go ahead and add in your transitions and you do this in between your video clips. Now let's try some of these other ones just for fun. Let's try this three D rectangle. Okay, so now here's what it will look like when we use multiple transitions in a row. So we go here, it fails to meet with the camera, and then, Whoa, there's that three d you know, Rectangle one right where it's, like, all these different rectangles. Okay. And then, like, almost zooms in. It's kind of interesting one. Let's make this little bit longer, just so we can really see it. So wow. Boom. There goes. Okay, we're gonna undo that. And let's maybe try. Let's scroll down here and do some fun ones. Let's do a doorway. Okay, let's do a doorway after that. So now I'm gonna put this all together, okay? We're gonna fade in nicely, Okay? You got that weird one there, and then the door opened. I actually kind of like that door open. So here we are, a cross dissolve one more time. We got the rectangles, and then the door opens again. So this is how you add and use transitions. Now, as you can see here in the transitions little area. If I scroll down, I have all the different ones kind of section for me. So if I wanted, you know, the Luna fades here, the Luna fades if I wanted lights, I can click lights. There's a static like noise Flare, bloom flash, you know, And here are some of the other ones that I have free downloaded from other people who have created transitions so big shout out to everyone who creates transitions, and I'll show you exactly how to do that coming up. But these this is where you kind of click and drag and used these. So if I want to do a loom, if aid here and again I can go ahead and try that out kind of interesting and didn't really do whole lot. But these are the different transitions that I currently have, and I'm gonna continue to have more of these transitions. Now, how do you get some of these fun ones, right? Like, let's do like a zoom in transition, right? Like you probably see these videos where there's like this really cool. Zoom in, right. Like, look, this is a cool zooming in effect, like, that's pretty cool. So, um, let's go ahead and go ahead and show you something here. Let's say I wanted to replace this. Okay, this transition isn't working well. I can click and drag a new transition and drop it, and now it has replaced it. So if I go from this clip, it'll zoo men to the next clip, right? It gives you that really cool transition, right? So how do I get some of these transitions now? Well, there are multiple, different YouTubers who I have personally followed, and I'll go ahead and put their links in the description and you can go to their YouTube channels, but you can also go to my YouTube channel. I'm going to have some of these transitions in the tutorial and also link all of this in the description so you can check it out yourself. But this is where you can download these, and I'll share with you the next steps on how to then put these into the correct transitions folder. Okay, so let me walk you through step by step, and we're on Ryan Neagle's YouTube channel. Hopefully, I said that correctly. This guy's awesome. I've been following him for quite a while. Big shot out to Ryan, and I'm sure he will allow me to share this with you guys because it will help him. But also you'll find things like this on my own YouTube channel. I'm gonna continue to keep building these out. So check out at Joe Paris, my YouTube channel, and, yeah, you can definitely find very similar transitions. So if you click on his video here, Okay, watch for the transition Boom. Okay, you can see it really pulls in, and it gives you this hyper zoom transition Very cool. So if I wanted to download this, he has the download link right away. You go ahead and you click on it. Now it says, pay what you want, so you can actually probably download this for free or pay what you want to. You would added to your cart and you would download it. So once you have downloaded that particular transition, you would find it in your downloads, and then you would go ahead and go to your movies folder. How you find your movies is you would go home, okay. And most likely, you'll have a Movies folder. You may have to create this, but I'm pretty positive that it will be there by default. Since you have final cut pro, you go ahead and you go into your movies folder and then you want to go to motion templates from there. You want to go to transitions that you might have to create each one of these folders. I think at one point I actually did. I created a transitions folder, and in here you can see I have all my different transitions. You simply copy and paste in the video here, and I have a free twirled transition. Here's a copy. So I go ahead and double click this. You can see now that I have the media, the small PNG that no Taurel clockwise, the large PNG and all of that is in this folder. So I go ahead and go back. Now you can see all of the different transitions. And then when you go to final cut pro, you'll have this transition in there. So let's go ahead and look a final cut pro Now. One tip before we do that, though, is you might actually have to close out final cut pro to see the new transition in there and then re open final cut pro. So let's go ahead and do that now. So now you can see the free twirl transition copy, and if I go ahead and grab this and let's go ahead and replace that last transition that we did. Watch this, guys, we have a twirl. Okay, so really drag this out so you guys can see the toil here. Watch how it kind of spins and really cool transition. So it was really that simple to go ahead and use some of these transitions. I know that that Taurel transition wasn't thehyperfix Zoom one that Ryan had up there. But if it works the exact same way, Okay, so if I no reverse this, you'll see there's that hyper zoom transition. So that's how you add in these transitions. You can find them on YouTube, make sure that you are using transitions that, um and you're giving credit for where the transitions air coming from. This is very important. And I look forward to teaching you guys Maurin our next video's stay tuned 11. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 11)How to Add Effects: The next thing I want to teach you guys is the effects panel. Okay, so to go back and forth, transitions, you click here effects, you click here. So what are some of these different effects while we have a lot of different effects here and right now, here is all. So if I have this video clip, OK? And let's say I wanted to do some fifties TV, right? If I just click and hover over it in my preview window here, you can see what that would look like. Okay. So definitely whitewashes a lot out. It looks like fifties TV. Okay, maybe I add some noise. Meaning, like, it's a little bit of that. Gives a little pop. Corny. Kind of feel to it. You can see it in the black aged paper. Okay. Like, interesting. I don't know why you would use this one, but I'm sure you could aged film. Okay. Uh, alien lab. Right. So there's a bond of different effects that you can use here. Okay. So ah, you know, bleach, bypass bloom. Okay, so let's go ahead and pick one of these. Let's try. Yeah, cartoon. This one's kind of funny. So that. Click this, and I actually want to add it to my clip. I just click and drag it over and drop it in. Now you can see this clip has that cartoony kind of look to it. Okay, so really kind of cool that you can add a bunch of these effects by just clicking and dropping. So let's go ahead and go through some of these other ones. There's keying. Okay, So Ah, Liu McKee. If I go ahead and click and drag that in there, you can see how that Lou McKee effects. So if I actually, I'll show you a better way to do this. We'll go back to the regular clip, will drag our Lou McKeon there. You can see how it has darkened the clip. OK, if I want to just do a here, OK? At both of them. See how much more darker that kits. Right. So you're keying out some of the main footage there, especially the white highlights. So it's really kind of interesting to play around with a bunch of these. There's different masks. Okay, so if I drop in a draw mask okay, you can use these different massive Let's go undo all of this. And let's just do, um, a shape mask. Okay, so you can see now that it just has massed out everything else and that gives you a very interesting look, right? How about a Let's undo that. A graduate mass. Just to play around with this, you can see how it's blocked off everything in the bottom. Maybe we just do that draw mask. So those are just some of the mass we didn't get to doing necessarily draw masks stuff. That's for more advanced tutorials where you can actually draw arounds if I do a mask here , okay? And I want to draw around a subject I can draw around my subject to mask them in and out. So they'll be more tutorials on how to do that in future tutorials. But for right now, these air, just all of the different a fax. And here's a really cool on kaleidoscope. Okay, so if I click and drag that on there, you can see I have this kaleidoscope effect, right? So it's like, really interesting to even play with some of these rights so we can do like the tile effect . OK, so It's a kaleidoscope and a tile effect. Um, so you could overlap some of these rights. Let's go back to the main footage here. Let's go here. Cool. Let's just try this title or tile affection. I say, See how it gives you a tile? Rice was a bunch of different tiles there. You know, you can do an echo on top of the tile, see what that looks like. Okay, Not a whole lot of change there, but definitely interesting. There's audio. Okay, so gonna go ahead to in the audio on if I wanted to, maybe distort right or do some, like television. Let me go ahead and click and drag that onto the audio. Okay, So before I do that there, let's sound the audio. Now, let's go ahead and do the television. On top of that, you can see it. Moved it down a little bit, okay? And it is added on, um, you know, kind of more television kind of sound. Let's go ahead and do the vintage radios. Drive at on so you can now hear that it's like a vintage radio, right? And also it's made the decibels way up. Okay, let's try walkie talkie. So then there goes all the way down. So now it kind of sounds like this washed out weird walkie talkie. There's different echoes that you conduce to eat cues. Okay, so you can really, you know, change the base. If I drop this down, let's just hear that. Actually, let's get back to our main footage here. Perfect. So let's do, Ah, base enhancer. Okay, so it's like, definitely pump up the base so you can definitely hear there's more of a base. There might be hard for you guys. Maybe, let's try. Undo that. Let's try the muffled Okay, Okay, so it sounds a bit more muffled, so you can continue to keep playing around with some of these. They're really There's lots of them. OK, so, um, really kind of need some of these different effects. Um, you know, there's just so much to go into, but that's how you use these. You just simply click and drag them. And I now want to get to The last thing we're gonna talk about here with effects is a lot. Okay, so I have this m lut that I've downloaded from the Internet, and there's a few steps to doing that. But if I click this lut on, I drag it on here. You're going to see that I can now use additional lots and color grading for my lutz. Okay, so basically, if I were to click here, I now have my m lot by motivation up. Ah, motion. I'm sorry up. So if I click on load a custom lot, if I have created my own lot and if you're confused right now and I apologize for talking a little bit fast, a lot stands for look up table. Basically what a lot is is it's color grading. It's like a filter, right? So if you were dio, if you've used Instagram or maybe some of these other social media platforms Twitter, what not, um not Twitter? Snapchat would be a better example. You can filter, right? It's basically putting on a custom filter. So if I click on the M Law Library here, you can see there's like badlands cold water, right? And it's making this, you know, maybe more dramatic, right? This is a bad example. Here, let me put it here. That's better. So if I go to Frontier, see how it made it a little bit more blue If I goto badlands makes a little bit lighter blue If I go to hear it makes it a little bit more Teeley, right? Dramatic here A little bit more blue, cold water, even darker blue. So these air these lutz that you can just put right on and it helps color grade your footage. So if you're interested in how to actually get a lot, do you want apply this lot? No, I do not. If you're interested in hotter, actually, how do I get a lot effect? You would do a very similar thing to the transitions where you go on the Internet, you'd find a lot, you'd have to download the lot and then you would put your luck in the effects. Let me actually share with you exactly how to do that. So here's the website motion vfx dot com. And if you want to get this m luck that I just showed you the plug in for final cut pro. You can get it now. It's free so you can watch the trailer watch the tutorial. It shows you step by step out to do it. But Let's go ahead and we get it to free you added to your cart. So you go to the cart here. Okay. So you can see I have my log in and password you'd log in, and then you would download it. Okay, So from there, though, what happens next? You have to find it from your downloads. Okay. And if this isn't making sense, there's always a tutorial on trailer there. But let me show you the next steps year when you actually find your luck. And then where do you put it in final cut pro to have it appear in your effects tab. So once you find your m lud from your downloads, you want to go back into your movies. You then want to go into motion templates. But then you want to go to your effects folder. Now you can see I have the m le effect here. And if I double click on this, here's the M Lud, and then it has all the different pieces that I need for this plug in. So it's very similar to adding transitions. You can also add in plug in titles, so I haven't gone through exactly how to potentially do that, but it's exact same way. Same thing with generators. This is how you add these plug ins. Hopefully, this is very helpful to you and look forward to teaching you guys more in our next video, stay tuned. 12. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 12)How To Crop, Trim, and use the Ken Burns Effect: Hey, guys, what's going on? Joe Paris back with you here for another final cut Pro 10 tutorial. And in this tutorial, we're gonna talk about how to transform how to crop and then also how to use the Ken Burns effect for some of your videos here in final cut pro. So how do we actually use these and let me walk you through this step by step. So as you can see here, if I go ahead and click on this little down arrow, we have the transform crop and distort. So we'll talk about distortion. Here is. Well, if I click on this down arrow, we should have our show color inspector. So this is again If we wanted to play with the color correction, I could make it warmer and cooler and all these kind of fun colors doing that. I'm just gonna undo that. We'll get out of there and you know, you can match color. You could do a bunch of these other fun things, but that's for another tutorial. And then over here we have this drop down and this will take care of Ah, you know, slowing up, speeding up, doing all these kind of jumps and all that fun stuff here with our clips. But we're going to be sticking to these three things, and then we're also going to stick to one other thing called the Ken Burns Effect. So if I go ahead now and have my play head hover over this first clip here I am at the river in downtown Chicago, I could go ahead and click transform. Now, when I do that, you can see that I have these lines here and in these blue dots. Okay. And then in the center here, I have this kind of plus sign with a circle and I have another blue dot over here, and I got the blue dots all the way around. Now, transforming basically means you're going to stretch OK or or not Stretch your clips. If I want to stretch it out, I want to make it, you know, come toe. Like, I guess, to the center there. If I wanted to bring it in a little bit more Oops. I grabbed the wrong part there. There we go. I want to bring it in. Bring it out. Okay. But we're gonna undo a few of those things, and we're gonna bring it back to where? Rats. So that's how you transform your clip. It will move this over a little bit more. So if you wanted to, let's say again, grab that. There may be moving over here or something and then overlay it with another clip that we could have kind of a clip within the clip. You could do a few things like that, and if you want to reset it, you can always just click the reset. And if you're done, you can always just click done. So that's how the little transform tab Key here works. And now let's talk about cropping because cropping is different from transforming. So with transforming again if I go ahead and show you this example, the entire video clip is moving right, so the entire thing is going smaller within the entire video range. Here's what we'll call it itself. But if we undo this and go back to or if we just reset it never go to crop. Now the difference is actually pretty drastic, so you can see I have these little white lines and I have these arrows here, OK and I don't have that center arrow, and then I would have to click Crop again. And then there's Ken Burns. And then there's trim. So let's talk about trimming. First trim is if I wanted to just bring this down here, okay? You can see it's literally trimming away the clip. OK, so if I were to go like this and click done, you'll see that it's trimmed. But I have this black right? So if I were to go ahead and play this now, you could see that, like maybe if I wanted to add some text or something, Let me give you this example. Let's say I grab one of these simple texts here. Let's do sure custom, right? We'll go ahead and drag that down. You can see I have my title here, and you can see now I have my inspector kind of come up. Let me to go with River Chicago, right? Well, what I can do now is I can drag this over here, okay? And now when I play my clip, it says River Chicago, and then, you know, again, it's it's this part is blacked out. Okay, so that's what trimming your clip will do now if I go ahead and get back into the little crop tool here and I undo all of this Okay, so now we're back. We have our original clip back. I just went and undid all of that. Now, if I want to go ahead and crop this again, should I say, instead of trimming it, here's the difference between trim and crops. So besides the little outlines here when I crop something, if I go ahead now and grab this and bring it in very similar to Lee what I did before now watch if I go ahead and click done or the return key, you can see now that there's that black areas, not there. It just cropped in on the entire video clips and now the clip is zoomed in more. Right? So that's the difference between cropping Okay, cropping as I cropped in on that and trimming OK, so you could see the difference, your crop and trim. All right, now there's one last little piece that I think is really kind of cool to play with, and this is Dunmore in pictures, but you can certainly do this with your video and that is the Ken Burns effect. So I'm not going to do the Ken Burns effect on a you know, a clip like this. Or maybe like this. Actually, this one could maybe work. But we're going to stay with this, OK? And here's what Ken Burns does and hear how you can kind of use this effect not necessarily properly, but there's a few different ways that you can use it. So there's a start box here in green, and there's an end box here in red, and you can see the start box when I click on it. It now has this green box with these green arrows that I can move around, right? So let's say I want to start here zooming in on myself, and then I want it end right with maybe me smiling and then you get the entire view. Okay, so if I were to go ahead and click done on this now watch. When I go ahead here and take the clip all the way back, maybe let's bring it back to, like, four seconds to really see this effect, you'll see here that now I'm zoomed in. Okay, if I push play. It's going, Teoh, start zooming out. Right. So you can see how if we look at this here and I didn't defect isn't coming through as great as I wanted to, but now it's going a little bit further away. So let me really drastically change that for you. So you can really see this happening. I'm gonna go ahead and go back into the crop Can burns. So we're gonna start it real close, Okay? Like really close to my face here. Okay. And we're gonna end it way out there, so I go ahead and click on this. Okay, But make sure you click down or enter now. We're really close to my face, right? If I go ahead and let the space bar go, you can see how it's Ken burns ing away, and then we get the river. Now what's really cool to is if I play with this longer meaning if I dragged the clip out longer, you'll see that we start in OK, but now it's going to gradually, as the clip continues to play, zoom out right, so zooming out, it's still zooming out. And then at the end of the clip here, it's at its maximum wide. Okay, so we went from here, zoomed in. I know a great shot right to here zoomed out where you can really see the city. That's how you use these effects. And there's one more than I want to share with you. It's called a distort effect. So if I distort, basically what this is going to kind of create is almost like a computer monitor in the background or some sort of monitor. Three d effect. Okay, so if I click in drag this little corner here, you can see it's kind of giving me this unique kind of three D effect right where Maybe if I wanted to just put this here and drag it like that like, that's kind of cool, right? Like to put this over here and then maybe have some text underneath there. You know, something like that, let's say I have done. You can see how I now have a kind of cool, monitor like effect here, right? So it's like it's almost like you're looking at, you know, and again, if we started from the beginning, it's like, Whoa, look at how that's like super distorted, Okay, and then it's all kind of coming together, and now you kind of have that monitor effect in the back. And I think why that's happening is because we have the Ken Burns effect on as well. So that's why it's like, super warped there in the beginning. And then it kind of smooth itself out as because we're starting from such a, uh, interesting point here with the Ken Burns and then we're bringing it out there so you can play around with the distort effect. I mean, there's so many different things that you can do with this, and, you know, we're gonna really have some fun with it. But I just want to share those three things with you here. And I look forward to teaching you guys more stuff when it comes to using final cut pro a lot of the ins and outs and I will see you in our next video 13. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 13)Speed Up, Slow Down, Reverse and Stabilize Your Videos: Hey, guys, what's going on? Joe Paris back with you here for another final cut. Pro tutorial. I got some fun stuff to share with you. In this tutorial. We're gonna be talking about how to speed up your film. Okay? So may go really quick how to slow it down and give you some really kind of cool, slow motion. He kind of facts. Also, we're gonna talk about stabilization because you can see here That's not 100% stable. It a little bit bumpy, I'm sure. Would you Exactly how to stabilize your footage and then they're going to be a couple other things Do we talk about in this tutorial? But let's go ahead now and do the basics. How do we speed up or slow down our footage? Well, if you go ahead and click on this little gear icon, it almost looks like a speed dial or speed gauge that you look on it for a car. Something like that. When you click on this, you can see that we can go slower. We can go faster or go back to normal. And then we can hold weaken, do a blade speed. We can customize this. And here's where we can also reverse our clips or than we can reset our speed. We can make an automatic speed weaken speed ramp. So these are gonna be some of the more advanced things that we're gonna talk about later. But not in this tutorial. We're just going to go through some of the basics because we can go through and do some jump cuts, some rewinding here and some instant replays. Ah, lot of other fun stuff that we're not gonna quite get into just yet. So how do we make our clip speed up? Well, basically, what you want to do is you want to cover the play had over here, and as you can see right now, my my clip is in slow motion. Okay, so you might notice that there's a little wobble here. Okay, So see how the camera kind of tilts. That's because I'm kind of holding it, and I want to share with you how to make this go a little bit quicker. So it's almost like, really speed. So the reason why you're probably wondering, how did you even get this to be slow motion? Because I'm shooting in 120 frames per second using my Panasonic GH five so automatic that kind of converts it to a very slow motion. He kind of clip, which is great for that effect. What if I wanted to do a regular kind of speed? Well, I go ahead and click on this and make sure your play heads in that clip, and I have stretch this out a little bit. So that way we can really see the entire clip here cause it's pretty long. Um, if you really think about it like it's just a lot of slow motion, so we'll click on this. We'll go ahead and click on our gear here again, we'll go too fast and let's do two times this fast. Okay, so immediately you saw the clip down here shrink. OK, so that means that it is well, going to be going faster. Another way that, you know, this is there's this purple e blue bar now that says fast and it says 200%. So if I click on it, you definitely can see Okay is definitely getting faster, right? And it's not quite at the normal speed. Normal speed would be fast times force. If I go ahead and click fast times four, it's going to look like, well, a basic, you know, 24 to 30 frames per second shot where it's like real life happening. Let's go ahead and see what that looks like. So, yeah, it's just like that's exactly what it would look like if I didn't have that slow motion effect happening. You can see everything is moving in real time and there's some jitters, right? So you can see it's kind of bumpy and what not? So how do we then? You know, maybe I want to make this go even faster than 400 right? So if I go fast, let's do eight times. Give it a second here to render, but watch what happens now, guys, when I go ahead and play this clip, it's going to go twice as fast as what you just saw. And it's almost gonna look like fast motion so you can see like the people walking by here , way quicker, right, and it's just way faster. It's not super duper fast, so let's go ahead and maybe, let's let's make this. Ah, let's customize it right. How do I customize my speed here with this clip? Well, I can go ahead and click this little arrow and Aiken do custom, okay? And you can do the same thing by clicking on this gear and going to custom. But right now, we want to go forward at the rate of 800%. Let's say I wanted to customize it to 1500% so let's go ahead. And we're gonna customize this to 1500%. And then we're gonna go ahead and click, return or enter. Now, you saw that the clip went on shrunk again a little bit. So if I go ahead and play this, look how much faster that's going right. So that clip is going really, really quick. It's like Do do, do do do the people go by Boom. Okay, so, um, it's only two or three seconds there. So how do why then do this even quicker and on the fly. So I grab this little area here, I can pull it, and you can see that the fast is going down. Stopped 400 right? And that's because I'm making the clip longer, so that speed is going longer now What if I actually want to slow down this clip of? I keep dragging it. It will go from fast to as we keep the only slow you can see how it changed from fast to normal speed and now slow. See how it's got that orange kind of tend to it. And if I let go, it's now even slower than that original clip. So watch me how slow this is. OK, so it's like, really, really slow, right? And I can make this even slower. By going back in. I can customize this. Okay, so right now the speed is forward, This 82%. So maybe I wanted to do 25% click enter and you can see that the clip is now off the entire timeline. And while look at how slow that is and the only problem that you're seeing here is see how the frames are like having a hard time catching up. It looks very jittery. That's because there's not enough frames for how slow I really want this to go. So that's what some of the issues that you might run into you if you really slow down your footage. Let's go ahead, though, and go back to custom. And we're just going to go back to here. 100 click. Enter. Okay, so now we're back at our normal speed. Now, what if I wanted to reverse my clip? Well, a few different ways that you can do it. You click here and you can also click. Reverse. Okay. And now you'll get these arrows pointing the other way, and the clip will go backwards. So if I go ahead and click this now, it's starting me here and you'll see these people in the background kind of walk back like I'm walking backwards, right? Like, see how they're walking backwards. Here, let me slow that. See their working backwards. That's why, um, reversing clips sometimes not necessarily the best idea. But if you wanted to get, like, maybe a cool shot would be here, like me walking backwards like that could be kind of cool, right? Like if you want to play that effect, you can do that. Or let's take another example here, um, the green river, right. Like you can see. Uh, maybe this isn't the greatest example. Let's do more with some Let's grab this clip here in Chicago. I'll drag that down and you can see here. I'm like, approaching the sign If I want to reverse this right. Like maybe if I wanted to again click on here is your option and I could go into custom or I could just, you know, reverse the clip. Now it looks like I'm actually walking away from it. See how it's like coming backwards. Now it's jittery and it's not the greatest shot because this was handheld. But instead of, you know, having it go up to Chicago, right? It's going backwards from it. Maybe this isn't the greatest example, but I think you guys get it for the point of our videos here. Um, a couple other things that I want to share with you here and then we'll move on to some more tutorials. That's how you reverse. Okay, so if I click back on this, I can reverse Fastow Cagayan River slow. Um and it gives you some of these default times, but you can also do custom rights of I custom this. Okay, It's a custom reverse. Let's say 50. Okay, it's going to reverse it even slower now at 50% pace. Okay, so look how slow that is. If I undo that, okay, I can go back in here. I can really do it faster. Let's do four times faster. You can see now the Clippers shrink. And now look how close and how fast it's going in reverse. Right. So that's how you play with that aspect. An option. So it's kind of fun to do some backwards film sometimes. And yeah, this could come in handy. It could be a fun little option for you to play around with with your clips. Now, the last thing I wanted to share with you, though, is being able to stabilize your footage. So if I go ahead and I go back here and I'm gonna make this normal just by going to custom 100 okay? Now you can see here. It's a little bit wobbly and bobbly. If I click on this and let me drag this down so that the clippers shorter so the stabilization doesn't like you. See how that was definitely wiggly. So we'll watch here and it like the camera tilts. They're right. It wasn't super smooth. How to help the stabilization is one to actually have a stabilizer. But if you don't have that in your shot kind of looks like this final cut pro something really neat that's built in. They have this stabilization key right here in your inspector. If you click on the filmstrip and you click on here, it'll say now, analyzing for dominant motion and then it'll start here in your background tasks. Okay, so it just finished rendering this. And now if I click on this, you'll see it's going to kind of smooth that out a little bit to see how that was smoother . And it wasn't that herky jerky jerk kind of like camera movement. There is kind of smoother here is kind of a smoother It was not Now is not perfect, Um, but if we unclipped the stabilization, you'll see there's definitely a difference here. So boom, Okay, to see how that was definitely there, that if we go ahead and stabilize it again, we'll go ahead here and look. And it's less like of a sudden movement. Should we say so. That's how you use the stabilization aspects and condemn it. Come in handy. I know. I use it all the time. If I want to make a clip smoother and not have you know, let's say I was doing this hand held and I was walking around the city like I actually was here. Sometimes you just can't have a stabilizer to make your clips super smooth. This is a great alternative to actually making those clips look more professional. Hopefully, you guys enjoyed this tutorial, and I look forward to seeing you guys in the next video. Stay tuned. 14. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 14)How To Record a Voiceover in Final Cut Pro X: Hey, guys, what's going on? Joe Paris, back with you for another final cut pro tutorial. And in this tutorial, I'm gonna share with you how to record your voice over a video clip and why you would actually want to do this. Or if you just want to, like, record your voice at all. This is actually a pretty decent option. So I wanted to share with you how to do it. First off, you want to click on the window tab and then you want to go to voice recorder. Now you can see here that as I'm talking to you, the input gain is finding my voice and actually recording my voice here as it's recording on another software. Now, if I click on this advanced tab here, OK, we can get into some more advanced settings. But if I wanted name this, maybe. Let's just name it Demo. Okay, so this has monitor on off gain. Okay. So we can move the gain if we click this. Okay. So you can hear an echo now, right? Because it's ah coming out of my computer, so we'll turn the monitor off. So that's what that does. And yet when you're ready to go, you can have a countdown to record. So basically, go 321 and then it will start recording. And then, you know, it'll say which event, right? So right now I'm in this s P D event, and then you could have the rule as dialogue, you can have another, you know, add it. The rule. You can click on different effects, hear music. What? Not So I'm just gonna leave it as it is, and we're gonna go out. We're gonna go ahead and count it down. So we're start recording here, and I'm gonna click on the button is gonna say 3 to 1. Okay, so now I'm actually recording and you can see down below. Here, it's recording my voice over, and now we're in the green meaning when our in the river here and you can see the green being played, and I'm gonna go ahead and stop it there. Okay, So now I have actually recorded this, and you can see down here that I have my recording. So I'm gonna go ahead and just undo this and come Just get rid of this for right now and Now, as you'll hear, I want you to hear my turn up my sound a little bit for you. As this clip plays, you'll hear what I just said as a voice recorder and you'll hear me kind of talk about this . So ready? Let's go ahead and see if it worked well, so here comes the voiceover. Okay, so now I'm actually recording and you can see down below. Here it's recording my voice over and now in the green. Okay, perfect. So that worked exactly the way that we wanted it to. Now you can also, you know, make this louder or not louder by clicking and dragging this. And if I wanted to maybe move this over here to a specific spot where it's like meeting with our in it was like So it's like now we're in the Green River, right? So it's like I could move that to the exact spot, and this is a great way to narrate some of your videos and clips. If you want to on, you know, completely redo this or get rid of it. You can always delete it. You can always do that if you want to do that, but it is a great option to record your voice. Um, especially if you have a video, maybe where you know, you hear with ST Patrick's Day in Chicago and it's the Green River. Well, basically, I could go back up to my window here and I can go to voice recorder, and I couldn't just leave everything as it is. That's totally fine. Go ahead and click this 321 And here we go. And basically, here is the Green River in downtown Chicago. It was an amazing day, a little bit cold, as always, but I wanted to give you guys an inside look. So there it is again. There. I can get rid of this and now let's go ahead and watch that again. So it's a great way again to use this as another tool for you guys. If you want to record your voice over video, I look forward to seeing you guys in our next video's stay tuned and I'll see you very soon . 15. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 15)Color Grading Basics Part 1: Hey, guys, what's up? Joe Paris here back with another final cut pro tutorial. And in today's tutorial, we're gonna go through the basics of color grading now. As you can see, I'm on the Las Vegas Strip here and I want to really bring out some more color. You can see that the blue here is just, well, that super blue. Um, you know, it's kind of a flatter profile flat, meaning there's not a whole lot of vibrant kind of color. There's not a whole lot of maybe depth to some of the images in the background there. So how do I use color grading and use the color board to begin with here in final cut pro? So the first in the easiest way to get to the color board is you can go to your effects tab here, you can see it right in the bottom corner. And if you click on this and drag it, it will actually bring you to the color board. But I actually want to share with you an even easier way, and I'm going to click on my clip here, and I'm gonna click on command six. Okay. And as you can see now Command six has brought up my color board. So let's talk about some of the things here in the color board just right off the bat if you're very new. And color grading is something that does make a huge difference when it comes to your videos. Okay, So it's something that I highly suggest that you learn and take the time and understanding . And I'm gonna go through here just the basics in this video. And then we're gonna dive into even mawr depth with color grading in the next little videos here. So color board, right. If I click on this drop down arrow, you can see we have two different types of color boards. And don't worry, we'll get into all this. We have the color wheel. Okay, so they click on the color wheel. You can see that I have the color wheel. Now I have my shadows, mid tones highlights and them the master. And then I had the temperature, the tint in the Hugh. If I go ahead now and click on the color curves, this then gives me my Luma gives me my reds, my greens and my blues okay, I can actually mix this. And don't worry if this is a little bit overwhelming. We're just going through the different options here so that we can add corrections. Okay, so we go back to our color board here, and let's talk about the three different options that we have at the top of Colored Board three. Now I'm actually going to go back to color board one, just to make sure that we're all on the same page here. But there are different color boards here, and then there's also the adding in the corrections. So if I click on color, I have my four different options here, my master color. So if I go ahead and click on this, you'll see it's now highlighted in this like yellow color. And this is my master color. So if I go on, move around, you can see that the whole video clip is becoming that color. So they go up to the yellow. It's becoming more yellowy green, and that's probably not what we're going for here for. Go down here. You know, it's that you're kind of like bluish color writes, becoming more blue. There's for sure it's definitely more blue. So this is the master, okay? And you can see here. If I let go of this, let's say I want to get it. Snap it back to the beginning. All have to do is click on this arrow here, reset the color adjustments, click that and we're back to where we were. So that's nice little option there. If I want to specifically add values, I can just click here. Let's say I want to do a 1 20 I could click enter, and then that shifted this over a little bit to the 1 20 mark. Okay, I also can add in values here, or I can just click these arrows. Okay, so if I double click in here, say I want to do 50% hit, enter. And now it's moving up 50% into that kind of green ish area again. If I don't want that, I get snap it back and snap it back. Okay, So these are just ways for you to go back to 100. Use the different items and objects here. I guess I should say the different color options here. Shadows. Okay. If you click on shadows If you click on this second little adjustment circle here, if I go up, you'll see that there's less of a shadow. If I go down, you can see there's more of a shadow, and we're also adding that color. Okay, so it's adding this shadow and the color all the kind of the same time there. So again, if I want to just undo this, we're back to where we were mid tones. Okay, if we go up with the mid tones down with the mid tones, you're seeing that the mid tone of my skin and also of the other objects going up and down also, then here. Last but not least, the highlights of this is going to kind of make it very bright. If I go up OK into the blue is actually making it more blue. Okay, and if I go into the warmer colors, it's making it a little bit warmer. And if I drag it down here again, you can see that the highlights are being moved around Now. If that doesn't make sense, don't worry, it will continue to make sense, and the more that you actually play around with that, you'll be able to adjust what you're looking for. I very rarely will use the color here unless I go to the master and I'm trying to make things a little bit warmer or a little bit darker. But in general I stick to saturation and exposure. So these two tabs here you're saturation and your exposure you have the same options. Master shadow mid tones and highlights exposure. Same thing Master shadow, mid tones and highlights. If you don't want to fiddle with the shadow, the mid tone and highlights for your saturation and exposure, right? If you want to do all three of those and try and, you know work around these, you could just do the master right And that plays with all of them the same time. So if I go with my saturation and if I click on the master tab here, this is the master adjustment. OK, so that is just a saturation for the shadows. Mid tones and highlights all at once. Kind of like I was just saying so if I go up with this okay, you can see Still, it's starting to become ah, little more saturated from way up here. It's really saturated, right? Like you can see, this is very blue. I go Roy down, you can see it's almost like a grayish color, right? So if I go right back to the middle here, it's about not very not very saturated. Off I go up a little bit. There we go. It's more saturated. Okay, Away, up. You can definitely see it blue in the pants. You could definitely see it more here and blue in general. But if I want to go back to the original and let's say I just wanted to make the mid tones and highlights pop out a little bit, right? Or my shadows, Let's start with shadows. Here's your shadows. Okay, You can see how I move this up and down, Okay? The shadows. They're gonna start to come out a little bit more, and it's not a whole lot of shadows to begin within this. So there's not a whole lot of things going on, except it's just making it a little bit darker. So I'd probably just, you know, again, a lot of these they're going to be very slight adjustments. Okay, mid tones here. This is your mid tones. You up and down. You can see this is making it a little bit brighter. Okay, You can see it's becoming a little more saturated in general. And your highlights. Okay, so here your highlights. And this is seen. This is in your moving around that much. Okay, so, um, these are you can see is getting a little bit brighter there. And the highlights are becoming a little bit more exposed. If I go ahead and click on my exposure, though, this is where things will really start to go around. And when you click on exposure, you have your master. Okay? You have your shadows, mid tones and highlights. It's all organized nicely there for you. I take the master and I go up. Man, look at the exposure. Now it's way overexposed. There's too much exposure. It's too bright. I go down, okay. It's completely under exposed. There's like nothing there. This is way under exposed. So they go to the middle. The exposure should be pretty good. And you'll know if you expose something. Well, if in the middle here that the image looks pretty solid, So you're gonna have to work on your exposure when you actually are shooting your video. However, you can make some adjustments to your exposure in case it comes out over or under exposed. Now it's still extremely important that you actually expose properly on your camera because there's only so much that you can do in post production. And if you overexpose something like this, you can see it's more exposed now. And it does look a little bit like you've altered the image slash video here. So this is the master rights. If I want to drop it down a little bit, Yeah, that might be okay. Maybe Like there right that way is maybe a little bit too exposed to you because of the sun . And I didn't have a filter on my camera at the time, So maybe I want to drop it down a little bit from there. Now I can use the shadows. You can see the shadows really coming out here in the exposure. You can see that I have the mid tones really coming out here even more than in my saturation. And then you have the highlights. Okay, so you can really start to see the difference between all three of these and then also again, you have the master coming out. So that's the basics. Guys of color correction Using the color Board one. In our next videos, we're going to dive into mawr color grading options, and I look forward to teaching you more about color grading with final cut pro. 16. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 16)Color Grading Basics Part 2: Hey, guys, what's going on? Joe Paris, back with another final cut pro 10 tutorial. And in this tutorial, we're gonna be talking about color grading and then how to use the color wheel. Now, as we saw in our last tutorial. And if you haven't seen our last tutorial, make sure to check that one out. But if you click on this drop down era once you click command six to actually get to the color board, you will see a variety of different options. Today we're gonna be talking about color wheel. So let's go ahead and click on color real one. And as you can see here, we have our color wheel. Now, if I click on this little check mark, you can see that if I go back and forth with my check mark, you'll notice that it's actually applying the color grade versus not applying the color grade. So what I want to do is I want to go back to the beginning of everything. There we go by simply clicking on these little back arrows. Okay, it's his reset, so I just reset everything. So we're starting from scratch. I'll go ahead and click on my image here again. And now let's talk about the color wheel. Now, what you have on the right hand side here is your exposure. Well, you have on your left hand side of the color wheel is your saturation. So what I want to explain to you is it doesn't really necessarily matter if you use the color wheel or if you use the color board or if you use any of these other color options, are all essentially going to do the same thing for you. Meaning you're going to be able to adjust your shadows, your highlights and your mid tones. And if you want to do it all at once using the master, that's how you can do that as well. So if we go ahead now and I click on this master and I go ahead and click this arrow and start moving it around, you'll see that it will start adjusting everything in my shot. Okay, so I'm gonna go ahead, double click on my shot, go ahead and click on this little arrow here. And now that it's applying that Okay, so see how it's way over exposed. Now I'm gonna go ahead and leave this checked, and I'm gonna go ahead and play with the wheel. This is the exposure, the master exposure. Right? And this is except exactly the same thing is if I were to go back to, uh, Color Board one, right. If I were to go to my color board here and I have my exposure, have my master exposure. See how it's mastering the exposure. It's doing the exact same thing. The color wheel just kind of gives you a different option toe. Look at here, Right? It just allows you, um, you know, it's all kind of condensed, and it's easier to maybe work with it. Just kind of a personal preference. So now if we go back to our color wheel here, as you can see, let's go ahead and mess around with the saturation. You can see if I bump up the saturation. Look at how much saturation now is in my video. You can see I'm like, almost is orangey Color writes like really red orange. If I drop it all the way down, this is the master again. It looks very grey, looks very dark. There's not a whole lot of saturation. There's not a whole lot of pop in those colors. So if I want to maybe bump it up a little bit. Yeah, that looks cool. Maybe let's try the shadows now. So for the exposure of the shadows, you can really start to play with the shadows Here, right. Were the saturation of the shadows. Yeah, you can definitely see a little bit of a difference there. As you can see, if I drop the shadows down a lot, the color definitely is fading away. And if I go up there we go. Look at that. I look almost orange again. So the shadows here, you can play with both of those. Also, if you click inside these wheels, okay, You condemn finitely, manipulate the color. Okay. So you can see the color definitely more green here. Definitely more yellowy orange by go overhears and be more purple. And you can see all of this happening on the video. Now, if I want to undo that, simply click the little arrow. As always. Now, if I go back to my highlights here, OK? You can just again adjust your highlights. You can adjust the saturation of the highlights and we went Let's expose this little more good our mid tones. Okay, so if I want my skin to be a little bit like warmer, I could just drag this here. You can see it's getting a little bit warmer. There may be a little too much, but also you can go with the saturation. So if I want to maybe drop the saturation a little bit here, maybe I want to, you know, make the midterms a little warmer, maybe a little bit cooler. Actually, there we go. You can see how this all works. Now let's go ahead. And after you've kind of played around with this and I highly suggest, guys, if you're watching this, do this with me. Play around with the settings here with me, it's really going to help you. And from there now you can also adjust the temperature. So if I want it to be warmer, as you can see, it's getting a lot warmer and brighter, and my skin tone color is getting to be this kind of like orangy yellow. We kind of color cooler now, the whole images beating cooler. Everything's more blue, just kind of in general okay. And if you want to reset that, just click the little arrows again. Tint. If you put the tent up, okay or down, you can see the adjustments that it makes to the color their back the hue case. If you go up and down with the hue, you can definitely see that we're making some adjustments there. Look at that. So the hue is cool because it just effects. Um, you know, ah, lot of the color here. Okay? It's really blowing out the sky here is making this orange color. So this could be really cool to affected this in this kind of way, right? So it's allowing you to manipulate this in a different way than, say, all the other options. Also to you have your master. And if you click on this show, okay, you can see a gun here. The saturation, the brightness. All right. This is just another way to do this. And it's also a way for you to gauge here. If I do the master, I just move this down. You can see that it's making the adjustments down here. It's showing you those adjustments. Same thing with the shadows. If you click show show. Okay, you can see that I have these different adjustments made different adjustments made. This is a slight one here, and that is overall what the color wheel has to offer. So this is another great way to really get in there and make your color adjustments using the color wheel. And I know there's probably even more that we could get into, but I just wanted to share with you what I think is kind of the essential parts of the color wheel. Because for a lot of us, to make a lot of these adjustments is going to take a decent amount of time. And we just want to have a very good video. Right. So, you know, if you're making, like, a motion picture film, then yes, you're gonna want to learn maybe some more in depth things with this. But overall, this is going to really help you with your color grading and look forward to teaching you Maura about color grading here, coming up in our next video's stay tuned 17. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 17)LUTS: Hey, guys, what's going on? Joe Paris Here and in this video, I'm going to share with you how to use lots and basically what a lot is is. It's a look up table, and it's a way for you to filter your film on Final Cut Pro. It works very similar to a filter like on Instagram Snapchat. It's a great way to not have to tinker with all these different little saturation exposure colors to actually go through all of this with your color board every single time. What if you just want man, I just want, like, that cool, awesome filter, and it's just going to go right on top. Well, this is exactly how you do this. First and foremost, though, you have to download a lot. Now I have the M Lud by motion B F X. You can download this on their website for free. It's actually very simple to do, and then after that, once you have it downloaded, all you have to do is add this to your effects tab through your effects folder on final Cut Pro. Let me show you exactly how to do that, so that there's no confusion when it comes to actually downloading and adding your lot. So here is the luck that I'm going to be using in this tutorial. All you have to do is go toe motion the fx dot com click. Get it now it's free. And then from there it will take you through a process to downloading your luck. It's pretty simple and basic. Guys, I've already done this, so I'm just going to skip through through the next part of this so that you understand how to actually get this lot to show up on Final Cut pro like you're seeing here. The first thing that you want to do is you want to find your movies folder. This might be under your home tab. It might be somewhere else, but just go ahead and get into your movies folder. After that, you want to go into your motion templates. And then from there, you should have an effects folder. Go ahead and double click that, and that's where you want to paste your luck. As you can see, I have my M lud here. Here is the folder, and here are the kind of like small P and G's and what not? But once you have this in your effects tab, what you will want to do is actually close out of final cut pro, reopen it, and then when you go into your effects panel, it should be showing up here. That's how you download that and get the lunch from M Lut by motion V. F X. Now let's go ahead and actually use this lot so that we can actually apply these filters. Now what you want to do is first click on this and drag it on top of your video clip. After that, it's going to take you to the inspector tab, and if you haven't it is not popping up right away. Just go ahead and click this little filmstrip guy, and it'll take you to your inspector now. As you can see here, I have the color board, and I also have my M lud by motion VFX. What you can do is click on the M Lud Library or you can load a custom lot. We're going to go ahead for tutorial stakes and just click on their library. As you can see, they have a bunch of default kind of lutz here that we can use. We have badlands cold water dramatic. And you can see that this is being changed in the background here. So if I goto frontier, that's kind of a cool blue color. If I go to cold water, it's gonna be a little bit cooler and a little bit more Teeley Badlands. This is a little bit brighter. And then they also have all these black magic ones can in d. J. I have a bunch of these different ones here that you could use. This is Sony. This is kind of crazy. Well, I'm not using Sony, and this is probably not the one I'm looking to use for this. So there's a bunch of the Panasonic might work better, though. Yeah, this Panasonic vlog V one looks fantastic. Actually, here's a vlog V two again. It's all about just what you're looking for here. And I guess I should just kind of move this out of the way. So maybe if we go all the way back up cold water you see, we're getting these different filter effects. Dramatic is pretty cool as well. Go ahead and click. OK? And now you have that effect Or should I say that filter that lut right on top of your film . So I go ahead and click on and off. You can see the difference between having it off and having it on another thing that you can do directly using this lot as you can go ahead and actually change the highlights, the mid tones, the shadows, all that kind of stuff right in the inspector here. So that's really kind of cool that you could just slap on a lot, try this out and then go ahead and actually, you know, use the settings that they have for you, the different levels, and it's really, really easy and convenient this way. You're not going through all the color grading stuff, but sometimes it might be even better for you to do that. If you want that control, you could also buy Mawr Lutz. So if there's a certain look, think of I want to buy this, it will take me directly to their website. You get blockbuster, you get instant pack. You could get cinematic film film lab there, so many different lots and options. Guys that really make your videos come to life. So I just wanted to share this with you. And I really hope that you enjoy using lots because it's something fun. And I look forward to teaching ume or in our next video tutorials, stay tuned. 18. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 18)Adjustment Layers: Hey, guys, what's going on? Joe Paris Here and in this video, I'm going to share with you how to use adjustment layers and why they're so important when it comes to editing your videos with final Cut Pro 10. Now. First off, you have to understand what an adjustment layer is. I'm actually going to leave in the description below a place for you to actually download an adjustment layer because it's a plug in that does not come pre installed with final cut pro. So it's very important that you understand that first and foremost. Now, once you download this and you put this into your titles tab I have. It's under my titles tab, and I'll share with you how to do that here in a moment. Once you have that there, though, you can go ahead and search. Not gonna type in a d. J, and you can see how I have these two adjustment layers. Now. How do I actually use an adjustment layer? What you want to do is grab and drag it down and you'll see now here that I have this adjustment layer and now here's what adjustment layer is. Guys, what I can do is clicking on this adjustment layer I now can edit using the color board. I can add a fax. I can add a so many different things to my adjustment layer. And then from here, I can click and drag this throughout my entire timeline So you can see this adjustment layer that I have here on do this for you. I've actually added some color correction to my video. Now, the color correction is not too intense, But you can see here I've dropped the shadows down a little bit. I've bumped up the mid tones and highlights, and it's just a great way to get the same color board across all of my clips here without having to copy and paste it individually. Look at how many we got here in our law, guys. Crazy, right? So you could do that with an adjustment layer. Also, if you have an effect rights if I wanted to let me share with you exactly what the color grading looks like. So here, if I click it on Okay, there's a slight change. There's a little bit warmer. Okay, if I go up a little bit now, you can really see. It's supersaturated, almost like orange and red. Right? So if I click here now, it's gone. And now it's on. Now let me show you Here. Look at how orange it looks there. I'll turn the sound off. Fantastic. Like how orange I look now, right? And I can continue to keep moving this, um, and adjusting the entire ah color board here. And it's affecting everything underneath this adjustment layer. Hopefully, that makes sense. And I just wanted to share with you that demonstration, so this is obviously way too saturated, but just wanted to share that with you. Okay, So what's really need now is with my top adjustment layer here. What I can do is at an effect, using my effects tab here. Just go ahead and click on the two little boxes and I'm gonna go ahead and drag in this fifties TV. Now I'm gonna throw it right on top of this adjustment layer. I'm gonna let go. You can see instantly that from here to here is now fifties TV. And then it goes right back to the regular color grading. So it's really need. I can now drag my adjustment layer over the top here. Now this is fifties TV, okay? And it's really a convenient way to add effects without having to mess with other color grades or other you know, effects. It's just a really neat thing that you can do, and it saves you a ton of time. So I think that you understand the basic reasons why we would use adjustment layer. And then from here, it's like, you know, you could use the different effects you could try Different color board to could do multiple color boards. You could do so many things with this. So it's up to you now to go ahead and play around with some of these things, and I look forward to teaching ume or in our next video tutorials, stay tuned. 19. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 19)Exposure: Hey, guys, what's going on? Joe Paris back with another final cut pro tutorial. And in this tutorial, we're gonna be adjusting in the highlights, the shadows and kind of the overall exposure here, using our color curves. Now, to get to this window, simply click on your window, go to your workspaces and you want to click on color and facts. After that, you want to make sure that you're in the loo. Must've you click on this guy. Here you go, toe Louima. And this is exactly what you'll see. As you can see here, this is definitely a little bit overexposed. So how do we actually work with this now? Using our color curves? Well, if we go ahead and click here, this is our mid tones. Okay. So you can see our mid tones go really high, were really over exposed there. And if we drop them down a little bit, Okay, so you bring this to the right. There we go. Right About 200. Okay. Our shadows here, you can see our shadows are really deep, and now they're about right where we need them to be right about there. Okay. So the shadows are actually pretty good. You can see now that I have a above zero and a below 100. This is a pretty accurate description of how to be properly exposed because we want to stay within this range here. Now if I go ahead and click this check mark, you can see the difference right? And there's certainly a difference here. Were over exposed to bright right. It's too light and bright, and this is because I didn't have a filter on my camera. It was super sunny, so you guys might right into this problem when you're shooting film. Sometimes it's just you can't do anything about it years outside, and there's a lot of that going on. So this is why you would use color grading, and it's really helpful. If I go ahead and click this again, you can see the difference in the shot. It looks much more realistic, and this is exactly where we want to stay. Hopefully, this makes sense to you guys. Also, one little trick and tip. You can use the broadcast safe effect. You can always just click and drag that on top. When you do that, it's going to make the unnecessarily adjust. It's going to make the necessary adjustments to make this broadcast safe. Basically, what that means is is going to adjust everything to wear. If this were to be broadcasted right, live on the air or something like that, it's going to be properly exposed According to this little tool. Such a little quick way to do this as well. Just wanted to share with you guys a few options there. If you've enjoyed this, please let me know. And I look forward to creating more and more tutorials for you guys here in the near future . Thanks again and I'll see you very soon. 20. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 20)Color Curves: Hey, guys, what's going on? Joe Paris back with another final cut pro tutorial for you. And in this tutorial, we're gonna be talking about color curves. And on our previous tutorials, we talked about color wheels, the color board. So I want to share with you another option Now to get to the color board again. Command six is going to really help you. It's the easiest shortcut. And now here we are at our color board. Now, if you click on this little drop down arrow, you can see that we have our color curves. Now, here are our color curves. We have our loom A. We have our red, we have our green and we have our blue. How do these work? And how do these differ from the other color boards and color wheels? Well, first off, it's very important to know that the color curves do not adjust saturation. So if you want to just the saturation, you're gonna have to go back to the color wheel or the color board. This will just adjust the exposure in the shadows. So if I go ahead now and click on my loo MMA, basically, I'm just clicking in this area here and I go to the top right hand corner. You'll see this little dot and this line that goes all the way across this adjust your exposure, said I Go ahead and bring this over. You can see is becoming very, very exposed. I can bring it down a little bit and it's kind of again You can move this towards the center and it's just adjusting the exposure. Right? So that's that if I want to go here maybe, like oh, I made a mistake. You can always just click on this arrow if you click on the right. I'm sorry. The left bottom left. You'll see this little dot again. And if you drag it, this is your shadows. OK, so you can kind of in between here, work with your shadows, OK? And really fine tune a few of these things here. Maybe I want to be right there. Maybe that's it. And maybe I want this to be a little bit more exposed. Share. Maybe that looks good. Right? Um, personally, I think it would be better if we did a few more adjustments, but you get the point. That's how you use this? All we have to do is click that, um Baquero and we're back to where we need to be Now. You can also adjust your reds your greens in your blues. Same way here. Okay, so this is making everything more read, Write and we drop it down a little bit. It's less red, but you can see the encore in the background here. Definitely more red than it used to be. We go back the shadows, OK, we're adjusting the shadows here. It's becoming more almost a green color cause we're taking the red out of it a little bit, right. So we're moving this around. You can see it's definitely more greeny blue. And that's how you can adjust these as well. If we go into the green, the same thing is happening here more green. And if we take the green away, it's gonna be this more purple, e kind of color. And then whoa, that's like craziness, so we don't necessarily want to be adjusting that much. But maybe you do for, like, a certain cool part of your video are what now that if you want like this to be super blue are, you know, super green. You can see you can move this around and is also a making the adjustments here for the blue . So that's how you use the color curves. And also again, this is just affecting. As I said, the exposure so and the shadows, I think it's very important. If you want to again get into the saturation, you're gonna have to click on this arrow. You're gonna have to go to your color board or your color wheels to do that. I just wanted to share with you the basics here for the first little bit of are color correction and hopefully that allows you some more flexibility now to use color correction , have a little bit more of an understanding here with final cut pro, and I look forward to teaching you guys more in our next videos. 21. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 21)Advanced Color Grading: Hey, guys, what's going on? Joe Paris Here in this video, we're gonna dive into some more advanced topics when it comes to color grading. And we're going to be using the loo MMA to actually adjust some exposure, some shadows, and we're going to be using the color wheel, and we're gonna be using the color curves. We're gonna be doing a few different things here, so let's get back into it now. The first thing that we want to do, though, is you can see I have my color corrections already open Use click Command six. To do this, we have no corrections. Right now we're a default were at zero. Now, the next thing I want to do is click on this window and from there I'm going to go to my work spaces. I'm going to go ahead and click on color and effects. Once you do this, you'll be able to see your loom a your RGB overlay, your vector scopes and then you're RGB parade. Now, in this tutorial where it is going to be specifically talking about the Loomer here and we're gonna talk about how this works, go ahead and click on your view. And because of this, we're gonna go ahead and click on the single option now by default. It just gave me the RGB parade. We don't want the RGB parade, so we're gonna go ahead and click on this little guy here and we're gonna go down to our Louima. Now. What the loom A is doing is it's showing us here from 0 to 100. I'm sorry from actually negative 20 to 120th. The exposure and what we're going to be seeing here is from left to right, the image. Okay, so here I am. We're kind of like right here in the image, right About 2/3 of the way there. And you can see this is a little bit overexposed. Were over 100. We want to keep this to about 100 below. We want to keep our shadows here above the zero mark. Nothing below. Not in the zeros here. So, overall, the exposure when I created this video was pretty good. It wasn't, you know, completely overblown. It wasn't totally, um, you know, under exposed either. But I'm not going to share with you how to actually make some adjustments so you can just go back into your color board. And if you click on the highlights mid tones and shadows or the master, you'll see that this will start to move around here. So if you go to our highlights, okay, you can see how if I boost this up, see how that's going above 100 there, it's going really high. So if we really want to make the adjustment, I would say our highlights. We're gonna move down a little bit, and that looks great. Okay, so you can see we're right above this 100. Here are mid tones. Okay, We can move the mid tones up a little bit, but I think that yeah, right around 75 ish for our mid tones is perfect. So right around right there. Perfect. You can see this. Just making those adjustments are shadows. OK, so you can see how our shadows now the really to shadowy because they're below this zero mark. If we go above right now, we're losing the shadow. So if we go right around there, that's a very good, realistic kind of shadow for what we're looking to use and do our exposure with. So now if I unclip this check mark, you'll see the beginning, Okay? And then we'll see. After you can see, it's a little bit darker, but the exposure is very good, right? It's it's It's about where it needs to be. This is a little over exposed, right. It's a little bit brighter and lighter. This is almost perfect exposure. Now, again, there's never going to be a quote unquote perfect exposure. However, I just wanted to share that with you as well. One last little tool that I think is important for you to understand and uses in your effects. Is this broadcast safe? Um, effect. Okay, so what you would do is you just click on your effects. OK, so you go ahead and you click on this here, go to your effects. And I already had this typed in, So I kind of hoops undo that. Don't want to delete that. We wanted to leave this. What you want to do is just type in safe, okay? And there could pops up broadcast safe here. You can click and drag this on, and this also will make some broadcast safe adjustments. Basically helping you pinpoint and find the exact exposure rates for you. So that is how you deal with that. And in our next video clips here, we're going to go through how to make these adjustments with color wheel and also how to make some adjustments with the color curves. Thanks again, guys. I'll see you in the next one. 22. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 22)Censor Effec: Hey, guys, what's going on? Joe Paris, Back with you for another final cut pro 10 tutorial. And in this tutorial, I'm going to share with you the sensor effect and how to censor things if you want something kind of blurred out. This was a huge pain point for me because I sometimes do tutorials where I definitely want something to be blurred out. But I don't want to necessarily crop and, you know, have the mask and do a bunch of things to actually have that happen. So there's a really neat tool with final Cut pro 10 and I want to share with you that tool if you go ahead and click on your effects. So again, just clicking the effects here. What you should do is click on the all and then you can type in sensor so CEO and and then the sensor effect will pop up. Go ahead and click on this and then drag it on top of your video clip. This circle will appear and you can just click and drag and move this around, but as you can see, it's starting to censor things. So, like, if I don't want to see my face. Or if I want to censor this, things can be censored. Now I'm gonna actually sensor out this encore in the background. That way it's censored. If I want to make it smaller, I could just click and drag it, make it smaller and there we have it, right, So that's kind of a neat little effect here. And here's what it will look like. If I go ahead and play this, you can see that it's completely censored out. Now. That doesn't look at the greatest, though. So what are some of the tools that we can use here in our inspector to make this a little bit better? Well, first off, make sure that the sensors click, cause if you click off of it, it'll uncensored and sensor. Now, if you click on the picks, the late okay, so you can blur this. So that's where it's just like smooth blur. You can darken it so it's just completely black. Or you could make it a rectangle, so it's a rectangle. We're gonna go ahead and picks late. This just for some other examples. If I go ahead and click the amount, though, see how There's Mawr pixels now less mawr. The boxes are getting smaller, like now they're very, very small. Another gone right? So you want to have enough to where it's like that potentially, and that way it's not too distracting from the video. Another thing that you could do is play with the Radius, so this will make it even bigger, right? And this will make it smaller. This is just the radius itself off where exactly the censorship is going. Aspect ratio. OK, so you can again play with this. This will show you how big or small the aspect ratio issue can see. This is now coming into this area here, and it's making this even bigger, more overly, and this is more circular and then this is actually going in the other direction. So that's about as big as that will go the amount. Okay, so you can you can kind of even zoom in on that of boost. You can really boost this, And if I go ahead and click on Blur here, you can see it's just incredibly blurred now, right? So that's Whoa! That's like the whole thing is blurred, so it's kind of a cool effect, actually, and there could be times where you actually want to blur this are slowly blur into something. So that's just the basic sensor effect here, guys. Hopefully you've enjoyed this tutorial, and I look forward to teaching you more about final cut pro in. More videos coming up. Stay tuned. Thanks again for all of your support. 23. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 23)Opacity and Blend Modes: Hey, guys, what's going on? Joe Paris back with another final cut pro 10 tutorial. In today's tutorial, we're gonna be teaching you how to use the opacity and also the blend modes with final cut Pro 10. So first off you have your clips. And in your inspector, if you just click on this little film strip here is so show the video, inspector, you have your opacity and blend modes. I'm gonna go ahead and get rid of this very first clip and show you exactly what this looks like. So if I have my little instagram handle here at the bottom basically, it's just a lower thirds. You can see that coming through. It's pretty in your face there, right? But if I go ahead and click on the opacity, you can see it's kind of fading in, and it almost blends nicely with the entire clip. So this would be something great to have if I just want like it off in the corner. This is a great way to kind of blend things together. I'm gonna go ahead and get rid of this right now just by clicking. Delete. Now I have to video clips stacked on top of each other, and I already have this in a blend mode. How you do this is if I go ahead and go to the top and go to normal, you'll see that I have my normal clips, right? It's just the first clip, and then I have this bottom clip right and you can't see the bottom clip unless I take it off. There we go. There's the bottom clip and there's the top quip. They're very similar. OK, but if I go ahead now and click this blend mode and I go to something like Color Dodge, you can see that when I played both of these, they're blending them together, gives you're really kind of cool effect there. What's almost like there's two of me were right on the strip. It's ah, kind of interesting. So what's really need to about this is if I click this and let's say we stop it, they're cool so you can see like me that I'm looking there. It's kind of a cool effect. What you can do is you can also play with the opacity so I can really kind of blur out the back clip here, and that is more focused on the front clip. And then if you go back, you can see there's more of a focus there. You can kind of play with this. Also, there's so many different options that they allow us toe have for this blend moon we have screen that's going to give you something different. Um, each one of these has a different, you know, again, auction here. Vivid light. This is where this back one is more in focus. Or should I say it's more pronounced than the front ones? We go out and play this cool. We gotta have that. You can go ahead and just really just try so many different things here, guys, there's a lot of different ones here. Um Salah Alfa, um, that didn't work loom a Here we go, Very cool. So, like this one's Lumet in the back like, there's some definitely some really kind of cool things that you could do here with blending to video clips, and you can blend a bunch of different things here. So let's say I grab this clip here part of this. Bring that down and let's do share this one perfect As you can see, it's got the first clip there on top. Drag this out a little longer. But if I go ahead and click blend mode again and let's go toe overlay, you can see now the difference here in these video clips. Right? So I'll get rid of the sound. Perfect. Very cool. How both of those air kind of blended together just want to share these quick little options with you guys. Hopefully you've enjoyed this and I look forward to teaching you more in future tutorials. Thanks again, guys. I will see you very soon. 24. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 24) Color Mask: Hey, guys, what's going on? Joe Paris here back with another final cut pro 10 tutorial in today's tutorial, I'm going to share with you how to use a color mask to isolate colors when it comes to editing and using color grading with final cut Pro 10 1st off, How do we get started? And why would we use something like this today? I have a video clip room at the pool, and, as you can see here, it's a pretty cool shot. But in this example, I want to draw out and really make this blue color of the pool really stand out and really just changed just the color of the pool. Well, how do we go about doing something like that? The first step is to go to the bottom right hand corner. Go ahead and click on your effects tab. From there, we're gonna be using our color board. Go ahead and drag and drop that right on top. Now that we have that already to go, you can see that we have our color board. One. Go ahead and hover over Thesis. Urkal with the square says, apply as shape or color mask. Go ahead and click on that. And in today's tutorial, like I said, we're going to add a color mask. Go ahead and click on this. And now we have a few other options. First off, you will see when I go over my clip. Now I have this little eye dropper. What's really needed is if I want to click and drag, you can see here how it's starting to isolate. Okay, the if I go right about yeah, see how my feet and my everything else has kind of blurred out. It's just getting the blue. That's exactly what I want to do. So I'm gonna go ahead about right? Yeah, that's perfect. Let go. And now it has that covered. Now I'm gonna go ahead and click command six to go into my color board and you can see that I have my mask and it has the inside. Now you can see we have the inside outside color, but we want to click on. Is this right here? So we have our color board and from here you can see now buy, click and drag This. The water of the color of the water color is starting to change. So here look. It's all becoming more blue. Okay, So I can change the different effects here. And should I say the mid tones highlights all that kind of fun stuff to get a different color blue. So let's make it really blew here just for fun, right? You may get a little bit last blue, but if I click on the color board here, you can see the difference beginning after beginning. So without any color correction in mask after. So this is a really neat way to isolate certain things. Depending upon what you want to isolate in your videos, we're gonna talk about more ways to continue to do some really cool things here in final cut pro 10. So stay tuned for our next video. I can't wait to see you there. 25. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 25)Color Wheels: Hey, guys, what's going on? Joe Paris, back with you for another final cut Pro 10 tutorial. And in this tutorial, we're gonna be using and adjusting using the color wheels for our exposure. Now again, in our previous tutorial, we're gonna go ahead and go to the window. We're gonna go to our workspaces, and we're gonna go to color and backs. After that, we're gonna be working with the Loom A So we want to go ahead and click on the Louima. And then from there, we want to do our view to be singular. So again, we're gonna need to go into Louima. There we go. So here's a clip. And instead of actually using the color board like we did in our previous tutorial, we're gonna be using the color wheel. Simply click on the drop down arrow and click color wheels. Now, as you can see, like we saw in our previous tutorial were a little bit overexposed. So what we want to start doing is using these shadows, highlights and mid tones to drop this down. So if we click on our mid tone here and we bring this down a little bit, that's working with the mid tones overall. And we want this to be well, yeah, right about at 75. Perfect. But the overall master highlights here, we want to bring this down. Perfect, right? Like see how this is right at the 100 now. And if we bump this up, it's over exposed. We want this to be right about. They're ish, right? Maybe a little bit lower. Perfect. And then we could take the shadows right and move the shadows up a little bit. That's fantastic. So the shadows here are above zero, like, right above zero. And then we have our overall exposure here at writer under 100. OK, and you can see now the image is pretty good. So if I click on this overexposed like you see, it's definitely bright, right? Click here. Just about the perfect exposure. So this is how you can now find tune with the color wheel, right? So I can use the shadow saturation here, right? I can use the overall saturation here to make it even more saturated, Really saturated, way too saturated. And you can see that over on our left hand side here as well. But the point that I'm making to you is that this is another option for you to play around with the color real. In our last option, we're gonna talk about how to use and adjust and get proper exposure using the color curves with final cut pro 10. Thanks, guys. We'll see you in the next tutorial. Stay tuned. 26. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 26) Color Presets: Hey, guys, what's up? Joe Paris back with another final cut pro 10 tutorial in today's tutorial, I'm going to share with you how to add a color preset, just like Instagram to your video. Now there's a few different ways that we're going to be able to do this, and we're going to dive into a lot or a look up table in a future tutorial. But Final Cut Pro has some pretty neat and some pretty nifty color presets. Let me share with you exactly how to actually access thes So we have this little video clip of me in the pool. I think this would be a decent example. So we'll go ahead and will play this here and we'll stop it right about there now. What you want to do is first click on your effects tab, and under the effects tab, you'll see something called Color Presets. Now look at all these different color presets. They have guys. This is pretty cool. And what's really need is if you just kind of hover over, you can see that this is moonlight, and now you're seeing an example of this in our preview window. So before I even drag and drop this on there? I can just see an example of what it looks like. Here's night. Here's sewer, right? Here's frost. So a lot of these are crazy. Okay, So, like, alien lab, you know, like, I don't know if you would necessarily use alien lab or, you know, artificial light here, ash. But they're kind of cool in general, right? If you want cool, like cool is actually kind of cool. So let's go ahead and drag this on top. Let's say we actually wanted to use this. Let's say it's a little bit too cool for us, though, and we actually want to get into the color board. Well, if I go ahead and click on this, you'll see in my inspector tab here the color board one. If I go ahead and click on the little image here, you can see that there are just very minimal adjustments that have been made. But if I want to maybe boost this up a little bit, okay, boosted down. You can see now my mid tones. We're going down and it's becoming lighter. If I undo that, don't do that again to go back to our original spot. If I take the master, though, you can see that this is becoming way more blue. And now it's becoming a lot darker, so you can manually adjust. But as you can see here, these are some very quick little adjustments that you want to make if you want, it is cool down your footage. Okay, so here's what it looks down with the cool. And now, if I go ahead now and undo this, you can see the difference is definitely cooler. Definitely more blue. And this is a great way to just kind of slap a filter right on top. They're using these color presets again. You can always manually adjust these and we've gone through other tutorials on exactly how to use the color grading stuff. Just want to share this with you guys. And in our next tutorial, we're gonna go through lots. Okay? How to actually download a lot, how to use a lot. And then from there, even more presets as well. Thanks, guys. I look forward to teaching ume or in our next tutorial, stay tuned 27. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 27) Hue: Hey, guys, what's going on? Joe Paris Back with another final cut pro tutorial for you today. We're gonna be talking about hue saturation curves. And now Hugh is just another word for really color shade, right? So you're going to be working with color shade. And how do we actually get to this hue? Saturation curves three on our color wheel or color board? Or should I say color correction? So in order to do so, you just want to go all the way down to the bottom. Hugh Satch saturation curves. You click on that and this will come up. If I go command six, though, it will bring us back to our color board. Right? Or you could just also click on color board here and there you go. You're back to your color board now. If I want the hue saturation curves There we go now. Where and why is this important? How does this actually work? Well, you can see Huber saturation or hubris issue. Let's go ahead and work with the hue saturation. For example, if we click on this eyedropper and let's say we want to work with the sky, I click on the sky background here. What's going to happen down in the bottom now is that we have these control points. So with these control points, we can just adjust the saturation of the sky. So if we go up, you can see the sky is becoming more blue. And if we go down, you see the sky is becoming less blue. Now let's go ahead and undo that. Let's work in the hue versus Hugh. Let's go ahead and grab our little eyedropper. Go ahead and click in the sky again. And now you're going to see we have some more control points and these control points instantly come to this spot because this is where the blue is at for our hue versus you. So if we go ahead and drag up, though, you'll see how the sky is becoming green. If we dragged down, it's becoming this purple e pink. So this is how you can actually pinpoint different things that you want to work with here in final cut pro, using the hue, saturation hubris issue, we also have the hubris is Louima luma versus saturation and you can continue to keep going down and using you know the orange Russia saturation, saturation, saturation. And then you can continue to make some of these as well. They're all going to give you different effects in different looks again in general here, this is just you now understand how to use the hue, saturation curves. So it's like up to you if you want to actually dive into these. But again, they'll go into, ah, lot more detail on exactly the things that you want to pinpoint. Hopefully you've enjoyed this little tutorial I know was very quick. But overall, I think it gives you a very good understanding of what the hue saturation curves can do for you and why you would actually use these. Thanks again, guys. I will see you very soon. 28. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 28)Saturation: Hey, guys, what's going on? Joe Paris back with another final cut pro 10 tutorial. In this tutorial, we're gonna be talking about how to manipulate and kind of change up the saturation when it comes to color grading. This is a little bit more advanced. However, I wanted to share with you the RGB parade, the red, green and blues. And then also how to get the best saturation using our color board color wheel and also our color curves. So we're gonna be focusing on saturation in this tutorial, and we have our picture here now. Right out of the box. Here, guys, this is actually pretty solid. You can see that 100. There's nothing blown out, more than 100 nothing below zero. So if I go ahead and click on the saturation here when I click on my highlights, you can see if I go up a little bit more. Okay? It's making a very slight adjustment, and I'm gonna have to go. Actually, click this on here so we can see this. There we go. So we go up, you can see here in the blues. Okay. We're getting Mawr blue, right? If I go way up there. Okay, You can see now it's over. 100 That's a little bit too blue, right? You can see here in the background of the two blue. If I go really low, though, right now, we're not getting really very much blue at all. So I want to kind of adjust the blue here. So it's right around the 75 mark, which is right about here. That's kind of a good, solid color here. You can see here that I'm also getting this percentage, which is right around 15%. Now, overall, the blue and the color that's coming out here saturation wise, it's pretty solid to begin with. So these adjustments are going to be kind of minor are mid tones, right. If we go ahead and click on our mid tones here are mid tones are pretty solid. Two orders bump him up a little bit. We'll go to about 10 there. That looks pretty solid. And then our shadows OK, we're gonna actually gonna bump our shadows down just a hair. But you can see I can go way up with these. I can go way down and you can see in the left hand side there. Me playing with that. I'm gonna bump him down a little bit. Let's go to five. Negative. Five. That looks good. And then also, if I wanted to do the master Okay, I could just use the entire master to kind of move around here and to get the saturation, you can see this is way over saturated. Guys, look here. We're way above the 100. You can see how the colors I look orange practically here. And the shadows he and everything else below is just It's not very good. Too dark. The shadows don't look realistic. So that's what you do not want to do. So we're gonna bring the master down again, back to zero. Since we've already manipulated these here. Now I want to share with you by clicking the check mark on and off. You can see that there's a very subtle change, right? Like, it's almost probably very difficult for you guys to see, but it's very subtle. Okay, So if I go ahead now and put the color board on and let's bump up the Here we go saturation in general. Take it off. Take it on take it off. Okay? It's still even very subtle. So let's go ahead. Now we're gonna learn were take it off. We're gonna go our color wheel. So with our color wheel here, we again can use the RGB parade to show you where we're at. Okay, Where are colors are at and how to adjust these. So if we use the master here, this is gonna play with exposure. Okay? We did a tutorial on exposure, but you could see way overexposed way under exposed. So we're gonna leave the exposure alone because exposure is pretty solid at this point. But here we go with the saturation. Okay, so here you can see the saturation. We're moving up here with our blues is becoming much more blue. And then move. Moving down is becoming less blue. So we kind of want to bump up the saturation again. Just a little bit here. Now, if I go ahead and click on and off, you could see it is still very subtle. And that's because I got I nailed the exposure and everything before or actually, while I was shooting this. So coming right out of the lens here, this was actually pretty solid. So while we yes can saturated a little bit more, we can actually probably take our shadows down a little bit Here we can then maybe bump up our mid tones just a tad, but we don't want to go crazy. That looks crazy, saturated, right. We want to bump it to write a bow. Maybe there that looks pretty good. And our highlights here we can bump up just a tad actually gonna bring these down just a little bit perfect. And that's about where we're at. So I want you guys to also understand here that this is touchy in the sense of there's no perfect way to color. Great. It's just depending upon what you're trying to get out of the film and also what you're trying to make your film look like. Write what you want your video to look like. Do you want to be supersaturated where it's like, you know, crazy blue color here, then and orange than making supersaturated? If you want to be more lifelike, that maybe just bump it up a little bit. And these this ah, scope here is actually very, very helpful. The RGB parade is very helpful to see these different colors and saturation ins. So if I go ahead and click off of this, you can see this is being manipulated here and there and overall again. Guys, I'm just making this a little bit more saturated, but it will depend upon your shot and how you're trying to tell a story or what you're trying to do with your film. Last but not least, we're going to the color curves You can see here that if we click and drag, Okay, this is messing more around with the, uh, overall colors here. Exposure. All right, so we've already done a tutorial on this. We drag here, this is dealing with shadows, OK? And if we grab middle, though, Okay, you can see how we're playing with this a little bit. We're making a little bit darker with shadows higher lighter there for the Louima. So, with these colors here, though, here's where our saturation starts to come in. We can make this a little bit more red. Okay, we can bring it down. We can move this around a little bit. And this is how we're able to manipulate the warm and cold right. And also these different colors and saturation with the color grade curves again they have the blue and the green. And you can see here if I take the blue right, Like I didn't go into this. But this is making it more blue, so you can see on our right hand rgb parade here. This is obviously going to be more blue if I bring it down, right? We're taking away the blue and we're bumping up the green and the red. So this is how you can manipulate thes three here, and I just want to share this with you. How often would you actually use the color curves for this? For saturation? It depends if you're trying to again just kind of make the colors that would funkier different. I just kind of again the vector scopes here, though the scopes are very important. And, you know, I should say the RGB prayed is important because it allows you to really pinpoint here what you're trying to get out of your color. So if I'm gonna go in and out again, very little amount going on there, actually us manipulating the color and I just wanted to share with you guys some more detail there. Hopefully, this makes sense. The best thing to do, though, guys, is to test this out for yourself. Try and see what works for you. Because there is no right or wrong to this. This is available for everyone who has final cut pro 10 a certain version 10.5. I'm pretty positive. And above, I have the absolute newest version of the time of this recording. So this is why I have this. But I just wanted to mention that as well. Thanks, guys. I'll see you in our next tutorial. Stay tuned. 29. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 29)Shape Mask: Hey, guys, what's going on? Joe Paris back with another final cut pro 10 tutorial. In this tutorial, we're gonna be using a shape mask. And what we're going to be doing is showing you the basics of how to really change Ah, color here and really use this tool to do some kind of cool stuff. And we're actually going to change the color of my goggles here as I am in the water. So first and foremost, depending upon this, and I know I haven't maybe explain this well enough, and I have sincerely a problem. Pra palla Jai's about this. You want to use the color board. So what a color board is, though, is it allows you to use multiple boards on top of the same clip, So color board, one color board 23 etcetera allows you to change the color for different aspects. So color board one example might be my goggles color board. To would be the specific color of maybe the pool color board. Three might be the color of the sky here, so you kind of get the example there. But I just thought I would explain that's going to go ahead and click and drag color board in there. I've already done that, and now it's time to actually start getting into our mass. Now what you want to do is hover over the little circle and the dot Go ahead and click this . And now we're going to add a shaped mass. Remember, we've done our color mass. Now we're gonna do the shape mass, go ahead and click on this and you get these to circle the bunch of dots. And it could be kind of confusing, especially, Ah, if you're brand new to this now, if you just kind of click in the center here, you can click and drag us around. You can click here also right in the center. If you click on this little white guy here, that's like white dot and you stretch it will make it mawr, um, like a box. And if you bring it in here, make it more like a circle. And then from here, you kind of, ah, continue to crop in, make it bigger, smaller and whatnot. So here's what we're gonna do. We want to just get these goggles right. So in this very first box you can see how I'm really trying to pull in here to where it's just about the goggles. Fantastic. Now, if I go ahead and start using the colors like a fight doesn't grab the master color here, you can see that the goggles air getting yellow right, But also you can see here that my skin is yellow, and it's not exactly giving me the effect that I want. So what we have to do is make sure that we grab the second box and really tighten things up there. So it's just around the goggles, so now you can see how all right this just the goggles air, that kind of yellowy color, right? Maybe I want to be blue. Maybe I want to be purple, but it's just the goggles on the inside. And again, you can do this by clicking and dragging. You can see here that that's Ah, how I'm doing that with the little mouse. So I think right about there is about as good as it's going to get for the moment. Yeah, maybe right there. Fantastic. So now if I go ahead and look at my clip here, it's hard because it's moving right. So if I'm moving here, you can see that it's going to be more difficult to actually isolate that. But if I click this, you could see color board and out there and there, Right? So if I go ahead and undo the shape mask here, Okay, if I click on the inside the outside, it's going to make that pink color again. If I click on the outside, you can see that the outside color is now changing, and then the inside mask is the same there Also, if I click on the inside here, though, it will go back to the inside of my shaped mask. That's how you do a shape mass guys, I know this might not be the craziest example ever, but that's how you can manipulate some of these things. Also, you can go into the exposure and a saturation. But now let's go ahead and just watch the clip here. I know it's very short, but if we just watch the clip, you can see you how that is now isolated. Now, in our next clip, we're gonna do a draw mask, and this is going to allow us to actually get around the fine points there and to really make the goggles look like there's no box around here. Draw a mask is awesome. I'll show you exactly how to do that in another tutorial. Coming up here very soon, guys, Thanks again. So much for watching this one, and I'll see you very soon. 30. 0912 JoeParys FCP RERENDER 30) Draw Mask Tool: Hey, guys, what's going on? Joe Paris here and in this video, I'm going to share with you how to use the draw mask tool with final cut pro 10. Now, I'm also going to be giving you these two stock footage, video clips, and I want you to go ahead and do this exercise with me. What we're going to do is we're actually going to in this very first clip. We're gonna draw around the beach here, and we're going to mask out than the sky, and we're going to have it be replaced with this moon drawing. Okay, so this moon video So the moon is going to kind of come up, but it's also going to kind of not only come up, but it's going to be. It's going to replace the sky here. Okay, I'm gonna share with you exactly how to do that and really use this mask tool. So go ahead, download those clips, upload them into final cut pro. And now let's follow along. The first thing that you need to do is you need to stack the two clips on top of each other . Like so the beach on top and then the moon on the bottom. What? We're going to do its first. Find our draw mask tool. The way that you do this is simply click on your effects tab. Then go ahead and type in. Draw mask. Go ahead now and click your draw mask and bring it over to the beach scene. Perfect. Now, once you have this was going to ask you toe add control points. We're going to start right about here, but you can start really wherever you want to. Now, here's how these control points work and I have my viewer right now At 12.5, you can get really detailed with this. If you go into 100 you could see men look at how zoomed in this is and then you can kind of , you know, again, depending upon where you want to be, really Zoom in here and go ahead and draw a cross. But for demonstration purposes, we're gonna go back to 12 5 so that we can actually see the entire video. Now, first off click to add a control point, we're going to start right on the corner here. That's gonna be our very first control point. What's very important is that we're going to keep the entire beach in, so we're going to draw around the beach and we're going to end right back at our very first control point. This is what helps you mask everything out. Now there's a few things that I want to make you aware of when doing this one the next point that you click on OK, you can kind of click and draw right around the horizon. Go ahead and do this now. But if you click the shift key and click, you're going to get a 45 degree straight line. If I go straight up, that's how you do that. Now. If you make a mistake, you can always click commands, eat, undo command. Zito undo. And if you really want to get in here, you can always click on the control points and move them around manually. There we go, and then you kind of just keep tracing along the line. Now for time. Six. I'm just going to kind of go through this with you gonna go down past the point past our point, and then I'm going to also go ahead and click now when I'm finished right to the front. Now, I can go ahead and adjust this. I can adjust this to if I really want to. Perfect. Now you can see I have the beach. But also now the sky is this moon, right? So I'm gonna go ahead now and play both of these. And you can see how the moon is kind of, you know, in the background there, going up. But then we have the picture of the beach. Now, if you really look at this, I'm gonna go ahead and play this and you can see here. I kind of made some mistakes, right? So I could also just go ahead and kind of cover this up. Try to cover that up to the best of my ability. Here. Control points 16. Perfect. There we go. Right. Move this around. But if it's not perfect, you still it's kind of like this Jaggi kind of edge here. What you can do is on that very first clip, Click on your feather, OK? Or you're fallout. All right, So what this is going to do is it's going to kind of clean up those edges for you Now, this is completely bringing in the edges. So we don't want to too much here, but maybe right around their ish, right? And then the fallout maybe right around there. Right. But it's going to really kind of clean up those edges for you, maybe. Yeah, maybe that looks better. Right? So it doesn't have that harsh kind of looks if I click on this now. Nice. It kind of has that feathery kind of like look to it where it's just mawr smoothed out. So here's what it will look like once you're finished. Yeah, that looks way better. See how this looks, guys, how this looks like, almost like a missed almost in the background. There is going to go ahead and go back. And this is what the video clip should look like after that. So it's really again. I'm just using this as an example. You know, toe, have the moon in the background there, you can overlay, and you can do so many different things with masking. But I just want to kind of share with you how this would look. We'll go ahead and play this year. One last time. Kind of a cool effect. And that's how you use the draw mask with final cut pro. Thanks, guys. I look forward to seeing you in our next tutorials. Stay tuned. 31. 1512 JoeParys FCPX Final Project: Congratulations, guys. Welcome to the end of our final cut pro essentials course in this video, we're now going to do our class project, and that's for you to create a video and to share it here in our course as a project. Now, what kind of video should you create? I would highly recommend creating some sort of short 1 to 2 minute video that you could put on your social media whether that be instagram, maybe Facebook or YouTube. But create a quick little video. It's going to inspire you to create longer videos and then also, you're gonna be able to actually complete the project, right? You don't want to be doing this massive project that you're not able to complete. So as you can see here as an example, this is a promotional video for my new YouTube channel. And I'm using this as an example for you because you may want to do a trailer video like this for your new YouTube channel, and you can see there's a lot of words and ah, I even have this cropped eso that it's going to fit instagram and you to a lot better. And so I would create something like this. This is going to be your class project. Create a little video for your social media. So go ahead and do that. Posted in our course project area and down in the project area. I have all of the instructions for when it comes to actually creating a piece of content for your social media. Actually have a blogger, I think, as well as another example for you guys to create. All right. Thanks again for taking this class. Guys really appreciate it. Look forward to seeing you in the future. Courses coming up, stay tuned.
