Francesco Schiavon is a recognized expert in the topic of digital media deployment for web and optical disc. A dedicated educator, Francesco has spent the last decade teaching in some of Canada's leading multimedia schools.
Capturing and outputting video is the black art of video editing. The choices you make while digitizing and encoding your assets play a huge roll in the visual quality of your final video presentation.
Watch as Media Deployment Guru Francesco Schiavon shows you how to log and capture video into Final Cut. Along the way, you'll learn valuable techniques for setting up scratch disks, controlling playback decks through Firewire, and dealing with broken time-code on source tapes.
But that's not all, the second part of this program shows you how to get all that glorious video back out of Final Cut. You'll learn how to print video back to tape for archiving, how to export reference and self-contained digital videos for use in other programs (such as DVD Studio Pro and Motion) and also how to encode Video for web display using today's top compression codecs.
In the past, this has all been specialized knowledge, but Francesco opens it up for everyone in this must-have addition to our Mastering Final Cut 6 tutorial videos.
Check out the table of contents below for a full list of program topics.
Very Good and thorough explanations, a little brief but still able to get the jist of it

I would say the information is good but a little limiting when only talking about one format and one kind of machine. It would be nice to elaborate on a few other format settings for Final Cut sessions. Thanks
Like every product..... very very good. Thats the reason I buy it! Almost all...

Didn't see all the tut's yet, but I found the one I saw: Capturing and Outputting in FCP 6, very instructive, pleasant to watch and excellent to understand for not native English speaking people.
Glad to have it bought, it's worth all the money!

Let me start by saying that I really appreciate and respect MPV and I own several tutorials. Thats the good news. The bad news is, this is not their best work. Francesco is clearly a knowledgeable pro but I'm amazed at the poor audio quality. I watch/listen to these tutorials with ear buds on and its really distracting. Also, like many others who have posted here, I miss the red circle.
As to the content of the tutorial, is pretty much the MPV/Francesco quality I'm familiar with. Exception being, I was told via an email exchange with MPV that FCE and FCP are the same tutorials yet some of the material in this video doesn't seem to apply to FCE. That would have been good information to have had prior to purchase. Additionally, why not make this a part of the FC 101? Isn't capture and output pretty "101"-ish?
The standard of other MPV products are so high its difficult not to be disappointed by one thats only OK.

Just finished watching this tutorial! Honestly, I had no problem at all with the instructor’s accent, but the audio isn’t the top notch; though the materials are extremely helpful and understandable, making this tutorial almost indispensable. Despites, it’s only one minor glitch; I recommend users to add this tutorial on their library because it covers the most important aspects of the whole editing concept and trust me, I am grateful to have this tutorial at such a great deal because trying to learn the whole log and capturing/ outputting process from the manuals or books could not only be time consuming but also painful. Thank you Martin, Gosia and the whole macProVideo team! And again, I have no words to express how great the customer service. You guys are awesome!

As much as I loved the FCP 101 Tutorial, I must say I have been disappointed with this one. First I must say that the audio really made it tough for me to follow up what he was saying. Once we tried the red circle bonus to the mouse pointer I guess we can't live without it. It really miss here!
Last but not least, I bought this tutorial 'cos I needed to know about the output options in FCP, and I don't feel like I got what I was looking for. The guy refers to another tutorial fully dedicated to the Compressor, but after researches I can't find it on the website. I was hoping to get something deeper and more explanatory in regards with all output formats, conversions and compression options available in FCP.

This tutorial was not the greatest in terms of its audio. The instructor lacked a flow and verbal cadence that I have come to expect with other Mac Pro instructors. The audio recording device often seemed too close to his mouth, which led to large fluctuations in the volume.
The only other tutorial I have had chance to go over was FC101...great instruction and sound.
