Since I'm new to FCP, this was a great way to learn the basics and answer almost all of my questions from the outset. Iain is thorough but doesn't waste time in his presentation. He is good at giving Tech Tips, shortcuts and more. Highly recommended. No doubt I'll check out his other courses.

Really incredible course. I am brand new to Final Cut Pro and Ian both demystified the program, organized my thinking about Editing, and gave me a workflow template that I am using already. Truly, Thanks. Will be taking other courses.
