FCP X’s timeline is not only “Magnetic” but also redefines the whole concept of what a timeline is and how it works! Join Michael Wohl, one of the original designers of Final Cut as he shows how this amazing new video editing canvas will make your editing easier, faster and more fun!
Back when desktop video editing was just a sparkle in every film editor's eye, Michael was busy creating Final Cut Pro. Learn Final Cut Pro from one of the original designers of this incredible piece of software!
No more tracks! When you think about it, aren’t tracks really legacy leftovers that are no longer applicable in a digital world? Apple certainly thinks so, and that’s why learning the fundamentals of Final Cut Pro X’s new Magnetic Timeline is so compelling! Without the limitations of tracks and locked-in-line clips, the whole editing experience becomes more visual, more adaptable—more like working on an artist’s canvas.
In this incredible Final Cut Pro X video editing tutorial by expert Michael Wohl, you will learn why FCP X’s new timeline will change the way you think about video editing. He first shows you how to create and organize projects. Then he discusses all the different types of edits including Append, Insert, Overwrite, Connect, Replace and Three-point editing and how these are accomplished in Final Cut Pro X’s re-engineered timeline.
From there Michael discusses moving and connecting clips, and the various modes of the Position tool. He then moves on to teach all about markers, to-do items, zooming and navigation techniques. You’ll see why all of these techniques take on a new perspective and have different behaviors in FCP X’s trackless environment.
No one knows Final Cut Pro X as intimately as macProVideo.com’s Star trainer, Michael Wohl. So sit down with Michael and learn the hows and whys of editing in the brave new world of FCP X’s revolutionary Magnetic Timeline!

As an old Final Cut Pro Studio vet I found Final Cut X to be confusing and did not like it at all. Watching this course has changed my mind about Final Cut X. Michael's tutorial videos are broken down into digestible segments that make learning Final Cut X a breeze. I can’t wait to get started on Advanced Editing Techniques.

Excellent with an exception: 103, sec 3, #17: Selecting Audio Tracks.
Compound Clips in FCP X aren’t explained until 104 sec 4 # 23 or 44 chapters later.
