Transcripts

1. Introduction : thank you so much for stopping by to check out my course on final Cut Pro. My name is Stephen. With my favor in a little background about myself, I have experienced building multiple YouTube channels and Instagram pages, generating tens millions of views and one of the key ways I was able to do all that was by editing and uploading videos. And when I first started, I started I movie. And then as I got better, I progressed into more advanced software like Final Cut Pro. When I first started, I learned how to use Final Cut Pro by watching a lot of YouTube videos, and those were great. But the problem was, I wasted a ton of time because it seems like a lot of people who make those videos there very long winded, and they take 10 minutes to explain something that could only take 30 seconds. And so, throughout that learning process, I wasted a ton of time going through these different videos and trying to figure out what works what doesn't work. The whole process took a lot longer than it needed to, because there wasn't something out there that was really concise and got right to the point . And so that's the whole reason I'm creating this course Here is this is something I wish existed when I first started learning final cut pro. So with this course, I'm gonna show you the basics of where things are in final cut pro How to use it, Some tips and tricks I've personally use. I'm also gonna include the video files that I'll be editing. So that way you can actually edit along with me And at the end, we also have a class project for you Toe, create your montage. So that way we can really put the skills that I'm teaching into practice. So with that being said, I'm very excited that you decided to stop by. I'm very excited to help save you some time when it comes to learning final cut pro and let's go ahead, jump right into it. 2. Interface : when you log into final cut pro, it should look something similar to this. And so the first thing we're gonna do is cover the interface, give you a good idea of where everything is laid out. The first thing we're gonna do is go to file and we're gonna create a new project. So I go to new and Project. Now, here we can title what our project's gonna be for this example sake. I'm going to say final cut pro example. A couple other details. These things don't matter too much for this example for the format, we're going to select 10. 80 p because the clips that we filmed, they were filmed in 10. 80 p quality resolution. That's gonna be the highest. And we're not gonna mess around with the rate or frames per second. So we'll click OK, and we now have a project. The next thing we're gonna want to do is import the clips that we're gonna be actually editing. And so, for this example, I went ahead and grab six clips from ah, cool Web cycle. Exel's That's P e X e l s dot com. They allow you to use these clips, copyright and royalty free to import clips and a final cut pro. There's a couple ways we could do it. We could go back up to file import media and then that Take the store desktop where we could select the six clips X out. Another way to do it is click this little button here, this arrow, and that pulls up the same thing. So it's kind of personal preference. And here are the six clips I'll select them. Important selected. So now you can see we have our six video clips to edit this first section here on the top left you could think of as where you store a lot of the raw data. So whether it be video clips that you're gonna edit music, you're gonna add to your project audio files to do, say it, voice over or pictures. So this area to the left is where you store all that Final cut Pro is cool because they give you a lot of options to edit the way that you view the information. And so what I mean by that is, let's say you don't want this kind of bar on the left clicking this button here will hide that or show it. Also, if we click this zoom button here, notice how it makes these clips a little bit bigger, so it makes it easier toe read something else. The clip Hyatt that adjusts how big the clip is. So this is all personal preference. Doesn't matter a ton in terms of our project here, but it just it's cool to know that Final Cut Pro offers a lot of different options to change the interface and the way you see it. So that way it makes sense for you, and you can work as easy as possible. The second section we're gonna take a look at it is this metal box and this displays whatever you're selecting, right? So the left here I selected this clip of, ah, windmill turbine, and I know that because there's a yellow box around it. And so because I selected that in this preview boxes previewing and so when you're editing video, it's really important toe sort of re watch what you've already started to edit. So that's that's all this is here. The third section is down below here. This is gonna be our timeline feature. So this is where we're actually going to do the fun stuff of editing clips. So to give you a better idea, we're going to drag some of our clips from the top left here down into our timeline. And if we wanted to drag them all a quicker way to do it, you just select, get notice how there's a yellow box around it to indicate we've selected it. You could do command and select the other clips. So that way, if they're all highlighted, just drag him all down to the timeline at once. And then it getting going back to our preview section notice when this vertical bars over top of a clip, it's showing that in the preview section up top, one other thing to take note of is on the bottom right. They allow you to either zoom inner out. This is very important when working on projects record. Sometimes you need toe, get very close and edit out. Ah ah, one second or half a second clip. Where's other times? It's important to zoom out to get a bigger idea of what the overall project looks like. The fourth section is this box to the top, right? We'll get more into this in later videos. But the main thing to realize is whenever you select a clip, right? So we selected this water clip, people jumping in the water. This fourth section it gives him or abilities to edit the video. 3. Splitting Clips : the first important thing when it comes the editing videos and final cut pro is the ability to cut up clips. So that way we can rearrange things and remove parts of clips that aren't necessary. We do that by using something called the Blade feature. There's a couple ways to access that. First go the top trim option and that blade notice to the right. I'm using a Mac book. As I filmed this and edit this. It gives you the keyboard shortcut of the command B button. So it also press that. Or you could just go onto the timeline here, Click Command be and that Cut it up. Now, if you ever want to undo something, just command V to undo. However, if you just want to have the blade as an option, just click be by itself on the keyboard. And now, if we take a look at the cursor, gives us the blade option. But it doesn't actually cut up the cliff yet, So this is the default mode that I operate in as a 85% of time when I'm editing, something to be cognizant of is, let's say you wanna move around clips, but don't want to cut them up Well, if the blade feature is selected or if it's displaying like it is right now, and I click on a clip and I want to drag it, all that's doing is cutting it so we don't want that one way to change back from the blade to just a regular arrow. You can click a on the keyboard and notice how it gives us just the regular mouse icon mouse cursor. Now we can drag clips around, so that's one thing to be aware of. You can click this button here, and it actually breaks it down. Select you click a blade, you click. Be zoom, you click. See right, So final call prom. It's pretty easy. Toe figure out went to select in case you ever get lost. I know Final cut pro. They also give you an option to set custom keyboard shortcuts it. So let's say in your mind be, doesn't make sense. You would prefer it for two. Yes, there's other ways Teoh change around some of these keyboard shortcuts to make it easier. I'm not gonna go into that. That's not really necessary at this point, it's more of an advanced option. But just be aware that Final Cut Pro does give you more abilities and options to change around the way that you moving the software. 4. Color Correction : Now that we know how to split clips, for example, sake, let's just split each one of these clips into two. So again, when I click on this one on timeline right now, the yellow box around it indicates that's one clip. Some are click be click in the middle somewhere, and now it's two clips, and I'm going to split the rest of these in half. A swell. The next feature we're gonna talk about is color correction. When editing videos. A lot of times it's important to change around the color. So when you film it, the lighting may not necessarily be right. The colors might not pop as you'd like, so being able to change the way the colors look is extremely important. The way we do that is we click this you could think of color icon. Here she was color enhancement, then show color board and again, remember, whatever clip we've selected on the timeline is the one that were actually editing. Let's say this DNA strand could use more color. Let's go to the top right here. There's a couple different options to you. Exposure that controls the brightness, writes off a cliff is too dark. You will use this to make it lighter. Let's say you adjust it and you don't like the way it looks. You click this button on the top, right, and that just reverts it back to its original features. So that makes it really nice so we could move this out, making a little brighter. Next thing is saturation. Saturation means the intensity of the color. So if we want to make the colors pot more, we would adjust this and the last thing is color. So if there's a specific color grade that you're going for, right. So if we know we wanted toe here pinker red, we would move this curse or over to that side, for example, cycle, go back and revert all of the's to the original. 5. Audio : the next feature we're gonna cover is audio and how to edit that within final cut pro. Most of these clips that I selected they unfortunately don't have audio with them. An easy way to tell that is when you take a look at a clip on this bottom part down below, there's no wavelengths. Or when you think of an audio file right when it's silent, the line is gonna be flat. And then when there's a big spike in sound, there's it's gonna go up. You could sort of think of an audiophile kind of is like a heartbeat, right? If you ever seen this heartbeat, monitors and, uh, hospital or like a television show. So for this example, say, I'm gonna bring in a separate clip that does have audio so that when you get a better idea for contacts, this is simply a like an intro video from a different course that I've created, which talks about how to create a good resume. And so I've already imported that into final cut pro and drag it down onto the timeline. And as I zoom in again, notice the difference between this clip on the bottom versus these other ones notice these wavelengths something else we could do. To make this more obvious is clicking. This button on the bottom right gives us more options on how we view these clips in the timeline. So notice my click that it makes this bottom portion of the clip more pronounced in the video, less so that makes it a little bit easier to see these lines. Up and down are the audio files, but we'll move it back to how it was before. So toe edit audio. You'll select the clip and on the top right here there's a tab for audio. It allows you to either make it louder, quieter. There's another, more advanced features, which I'm not really gonna going to. That's not important at this time. Another thing you could do is click on the colored wand, go down toe audio show audio enhancements, and that gives us even more options. So in some cases, if you're not using a high quality microphone, right and let's say you're filming outside, there's a lot of background noise. This could be a great feature, selecting that and then removing the background noise. And if you don't want to use it. All you do is select this box again to indicate that it it's no longer selected for your clip. So when it comes to the audio, a lot of it does come to trial and error. Figuring out what you think sounds best. There's a lot of components that go into it right, the quality of the microphone that you're using, the background sound. There's a lot of factors that come into good audio quality, right, Weatherby, The equipment that you're using? Is it a high quality or low quality microphone? Is there a lot of background noise around, so a lot of it depends. 6. Speed : the next future we're gonna talk about is either speeding up or slowing down clips. This is a very important ability when it comes to editing videos, and the way we do that is by selecting a clip, we click this button here. It gives us different options. Whether we're gonna split slide on the clip by 50 25 10% speed it out by 248 or 20 X if we want to return it to its normal speed. And as we're going down, notice how it puts the keyboard shortcuts next to it. So again, like I mentioned before, the more you get familiar with certain features, it may be a lot easier to use keyboard shortcuts and Final cut Pro does a great job of easily breaking that down. So that way you can remember that when comes to speeding things up. Typically, I like to use the custom feature. That way you have more control, and then you can set the speed to whatever you want. So 100% it's gonna be with a clip normally is, so if you want to make it 90% slower, just type 90 and enter notice on the top here. The color changes and it also explicitly says 90%. Then from there, if you want to change it again, you just click the arrow and change it around. So for this project, what we're gonna do is we're gonna take just this small clip where the group is jumping into the water. Right? So we're going to and what I'm doing right now is on my keyboard clicking the left arrow to just move back, frame by frame until I get to the last. Okay, so we're gonna zoom. Great. They're stop right there. I'll select be, You know, zoom in a little closer so you can see what I'm doing here. So this line is where we're out on the video right now and I'm gonna click that split the clip there. Then let's say all this we don't want And then let's say this clip right here where these two girls are jumping in, Let's go. And we're gonna make this faster. We're gonna end it right when they get in the water again. Notice on the timeline. Here I have the blade feature again. This is something I use typically 80% of the time when navigating. It's all this other stuff between. Now it's like a I don't need this. Someone is selected. Click. Delete it. If you want to watch stuff through you, move the vertical line where we wanted to. Then click Space Bar So we'll watch the through the group's jumping in and those two. So we're going to speed up this clip custom. Let's say 150% notice how that makes a clip much shorter because it's now quicker and conversely will make this 50%. Now let's watch that back. Now let's say we wanted to interconnected, too. So let's say the clips going to start with these guys jumping. It'll cut toe these girls jumping, and then the clip will finish these guys. So let's put the clip. Drag this around, not watch it. There are other cool options when it comes to adjusting the speed. Something else that you do is reverse the clip. So if we take a look at this party scene, notice how everybody's clapping. The confetti is moving down right because of gravity. If we it's like the clip and say reverse clip, it's not gonna play it backwards. It was how all the confetti is moving up. Now there's some other options to We're not gonna go into every single possible option, but that cover some of the main ideas when it comes to editing the speed where they want to slow down, speed it up and some of the cool, preset options that Funchal Pro has. 7. Effects: next feature we're gonna talk about is the effects. In my opinion, this is one of the main things which I think really sets final cut pro away from some of the basic video editing Softwares like I movie. So how we get to effects As we click this button here, I'm gonna take you through three different examples. The first thing is, it's called the Sensor. I think this allows you to basically blur something so whether you're blurring somebody's face, so let's say making a home movie and you have your kids in there. But you don't want to put your kids faces out there. You want to protect their privacy. This allows you to play their face. Or let's say somebody curses or says something confidential, and you don't want somebody to read the lips of what somebody's saying. You can use this feature to help blur out their mouth so people can't see what they're saying, right. So for this example, what we're gonna do is we're gonna blur this woman's face wall. She's stretching. One thing to be aware of when it comes to these effects is you drag. It applies to the whole clip So if we take no, this clip of the woman stretching, it's It's two separate clips right now. If I wanted her face to be blurred this entire time, I'll have to take the sensor effect and drag it onto both clips. To make this project simple. We're gonna delete one and just focus on one. So I move the sensor feature onto the clip. And if you see there's a big sort of blurry circle, then on the top right here notice how this box is blue are highlighted to mean that it's an active feature. If we wanted to say we accidentally moved it on and then we didn't like it, we wanted to remove this feature or effect we could just click the box. You know this how it goes away, Turn on, turn it off within this section gives you more options toe edit this blur. So, for instance, the amount of how blurry do you want it to look? You want to blur just a little bit or all the way. The first thing we're gonna mess around with is the radius. So this circle, it doesn't look good because it's way too big, right? we only needed to cover her face, not her entire body, so we can drag the radius down. So it's lower. Also, in this previous screen, you can click the center button and just move it. So we're now gonna get smaller method. There's also options. So whether you could pixelated it like it is right now could blur it right, or you could darken. But for this example, we will keep it pixelated. We're gonna lower the amount a little bit, and then this is getting a little bit more into advanced editing. But all these introduce it to the idea of this right? So if we were to notice how at this point, the clip right now it's covering her face perfectly right? But if we go to the beginning of the clip, notice how it's not in the beginning part. And really, if you think about it as her face is moving, we have to make sure that the blur follows the face. The way we do that is this right hand side. There's something called key frames, which allows you to have this circle trace her face so away we would do that is going to begin in the clip, we would move the circle over the face. The center feature is where the circles actually positioned, right? So that's the thing that we want control for because the actual blur the actual size of it . That's fine. That's a good consistent throughout the court with throughout the clip. But where it's located matters. So we first put it over her face. Then we would click this button the at key frame. Now, since that's selected, we would basically move frame by frame, and I'll go ahead and do that for this whole clip and then show you what it looks like afterwards. Okay, so not played all the way through now. Notice how the blur follows her face as she moves down, and that's all to to adding this key frame feature. So that's the first effect. The next effect we're going to take a look at is black and white. So let's say you want to make a clip appear Leggett's from the olden days. Let's go to this clip of a hot air balloon gonna drag the black might feature on top, and it makes it black and white. And then again on the top right here. There's more options to edit, so whether you want it to be 100% black and white only a little bit, the third feature is we'll cover is night vision, so we'll take night vision, drag it back on balloon clip, and then there's a whole host of options that you can change. So let's say we don't want it to look like we're looking through binoculars. But through any lips or just a circle, these effects are gonna be for everyone, right? A lot of it's going to depend on the actual project that you're going for and the specific vision that you have for the project. So I really do encourage you to take a look through all the different effects that final cut pro offers. Like I said, there's a ton in here, and I really do think this is one of the main things that separates it from some of these other starter free Softwares. 8. Transitions : the next feature. We're gonna talk about its transitions and you'll get to that by clicking this envelope looking thing here. Now, transitions are simply effects from when you move from one clip to the next, and it can add cool effect. So after we select, that will go to all. And let's say we want to add a cool effect as we move from this clip of windmill to DNA helix. So the first thing we're gonna do is notice how this clip naturally blacks out. So to get the full effect of the transitions we're gonna be using, I'll go ahead and cut that piece of it out. So that way it cuts straight from the windmill to the DNA helix. Now, I'm gonna take one of these at random. Let's say earthquake. So So for this, I'm gonna drag earthquake. I'm gonna put it over. Top of clip here says there's not enough space to create beyond the cliff edges overlap sacred transition. Now, if we play this all the way through going into it, that will delete that because we only want it to be when it moves from the turbine to. So it's much that again. So it's kind of cool effect. For example, sake, let's grab another one to Mosaic here, go back and watch it. So notice how that senators how it kind of tiles out like that, right? And less label, too. Let her ex so pretty cool options again. Similar to the effects. There's a lot of different options that they offer really encourage. When you have more time toe, take further, look and see which of these transitions best fit either the video where the project that you're working on. 9. Titles: the next future we're gonna talk about is adding titles or basically text to your video. This is gonna be really important whether you want to add an intro and outro or text throughout the video to further enhance its. We'll get to that by clicking this T button here and gives us a whole host of options. A couple things to be aware of when it comes to titles is you could either dragged them to be their own separate part of the screen. So notice how we play this. It's on Lee text, and then it goes into the video clip. Or you could also overlay the text. You can have text on top of the video, so there's a lot of flexibility when it comes to that. For this example sake, Let's said we wanted the's Boogie Lights to be. Our introduction will drag that. Make sure it's actually before the clip. Then when we select it on the top right here, there's different options to edit the effects for this will go to the text. This is where you actually edit what you want, the text or the title to say. Now if we don't like the way that looks right. If we think it's too big, we can resize it. We can change the font, a lot of different options to change things or if we want to make this on two different lines. But our cursor click enter, it's a lot of different options. Now let's zoom in a little bit here and let's say that's too long. We don't want our intro to be two seconds. We want it to be closer to one second. Now see how that looks. Welcome to our video so that I won't buy a little too fast, so we'll make it longer again. Welcome to our. Another way I've used this personally is whenever I would make you two videos before I got actual logo. Or you could think that his watermark on all my videos so that you could do is take this title dragon on top of the video that we can then re drag that down to the bottom corner. And then if we zoom out, we can simply take this title feature and make it the whole length of the video. So that's another really easy way. So that way, wherever we're watching whatever clip, Ron, our logo is gonna be on the bottom left corner, so that's a really easy sort of quick way to make sure that you have your logo or if there's something that's really important. 10. Generators : after titles, Let's take a look at something called generators. Generators are You could think of them as dynamic backgrounds, which you could use. So, for example, sake, let's take this thing is called drifting. We'll drag onto our timeline. Then I get on the top right here. There's more options to edit it. So if we play the clip right now, by itself, looks like there's some bubbles that are slowly floating all over the screen. Say we wanted to increase the number of the bubbles drag that say we wanted to make it move faster. We would move that over. Now let's see how that looks right, so that certainly changes it. Another that's a possible option would be under water. So notice how it gives that effect. When it comes to these backgrounds, there's no necessarily rules, right? So if you like this background and that you wanted some text to display, there's no rules when it comes to editing, and a lot of the magic really happens when you're creative with it, and you combine a lot of these different unique options. The real fun and art occurs when you take a lot of these different options and combine them in your own unique way 11. Themes : the next future, we're gonna take a look at something called themes. Do that by clicking the tea over this envelope looking icon here. You could think of themes as smaller sort of pre animated clips that you can use. And what I mean by that is, for example, sake. Let's click the news option and let's say you wanted to create your own type of new show. It's a pretty cool effect that final cut pro basically gives you. So if you want to start your own YouTube new show, right and you wanted to make it look professional, you have. This is the intro Nightly news with your Channel name, and then it gets right into it. Another example could be this slide right option that's under the category of scrapbook. So let's say we're making a video talking about your summer and all the cool trips and stuff you did. And then the overall theme you want to add is sort of like a scrapbook of vibe to it, right? So you're kind of going through the pages taking a look back over these moments. Something you could do is place this between a couple clips so kind of similar to a transition where, as it's going notice it takes this video frame, and then as it moves it out, it puts it in something that looks like a picture. The background kind of looks like you're in a scrapbook. Then it moves to this, which sort of looks like a picture. But then it's cool cause it zooms in and actually starts playing the video. Definitely a lot of options that you can use when it comes to adding that creative touch to your project. 12. Picture in a Picture : the last cool feature we're gonna talk about is something called Picture in a picture. And this is actually a feature that I use quite a bit when it comes to editing projects. This course that you're watching right now actually use final cut pro toe edit if you remember in earlier videos when I was first talking about the layout of this software, right. So the first section, second section all that I used the picture in a picture have this red square. I take it, drag it onto the timeline and then right here, it allows me to edit the size of this. If I wanted to put a box around this windmill right here can resize it, drag it down, Click done. Never goto our timeline. Zoom in a little bit. Notice this box is only gonna be there for the length. So if we play the clip, it's gonna be a win mail by itself. Then a box is gonna appear and then eventually it'll drop off. This is something that's important. The ability to take a picture or a video and overlay it on top of another video to give you another example. Let's say I wanted to have a video of me doing like commentary over top of this Right now, if I drag it down because this clip of me talking is full sized, it's gonna cover up everything below. Go down here and resize it. Now it's smaller and I can put that say in the corner. So if this was a project where I was talking about windmills and narrating and I feel myself previously saying so this is the best windmill out there. It's located in this country, blah, blah. So that's one really powerful feature. There's other creative things you can do with this as well. No, something else you could do is the crop feature. So let's say I don't like all this other background click crop. Then I'm moving the sides. Click done. Then, if you ever want to move this around or rearrange it, go back to transform, then it allows you toe resize it 13. Class Project : No, we have a good idea of the different options now that we have a good idea of the different options off Final Cut Pro. Let's go ahead and put it all together, and we're gonna do that through our class project. So I want you to use some of the clips that I included in the course toe follow along, but don't necessarily do exactly what I'm doing. I want you to put your own creative spin on it and use your own effects that you think look cool for this example. Project. Let's say it's the end of the year and you're making a montage of the different stuff that you either films or experienced throughout the year, So that's gonna be the idea. When we put this montage together, I'll go ahead and at it. That way you can see how a lot of this stuff would happen in real time, and then we'll wrap things up by showing you how to actually export the video and close things out. - Now let's go ahead and play this all the way through and see what this looks like to view it full screen. We can click this button here 14. Final thoughts: The last step in the process is to export the video file. The way we do that is we go to the far right and click that button, and that'll give us options to export the video that wraps it up for this course. I really hope you got some great information about using the basics and having a good idea of what final cut pro has to offer. I'm really excited and looking forward to the class project that you guys create and upload to this course and be sure to let me know if you want to see a more advanced tutorial. A Final Cut pro. There is a lot of additional, really cool tips and tricks that I didn't cover just because it's for a lot more specialised projects, right, and the whole goal of this course was to give you a good introduction. But there's still tons of other features that Final Couple offers that although a lot of other Softwares don't. So if you want to see a more advanced in depth review of Final Cut Pro, absolutely, let me no, just let me know in the comments below, and if there's enough request, I'll be sure to make one for you guys again. They do so much and I wish you the best look.
