    Over Your Shoulder Tutorials
    Hi, I was wondering if there were any type of fcp tutorials that featured "over your shoulder" type tutorials. So instead of just showing you the features, you actually watch over their shoulder as they produce a video from start to finish. If there's not something already like it, I might even consider making some myself. Thanks for any input!

    Re: Over Your Shoulder Tutorials
    Conner, there are 'project-based' tutorials on the Internet, if this is what you mean. Producing a video from start to finish would require access to the same footage and covering different topics to maximise the learning to the viewer. This can be a big undertaking but surely people always appreciate good content. In addition to MacPro Videos, there are books, tutorials and podcasts that I came across, e.g. Creative Cow and FCP community forums, which could be of help to you. Good luck and look forward to see what you'll bring.

    Thanks for the reply. I looked around and couldn't find anything quite like that. I had a look at Creative Cow and they had some awesome stuff, but still mostly this is what this does, next... instead of application. I was thinking of making some tutorials of "cool final cut" video segments with things like cool and complex series of effects of something you would find from movies, and more application "template tutorials" where i go over difficult and unique intros, series of effects, etc. that people can copy off of for use themselves. What do you think? Thanks.

    I am sure everyone would appreciate "cool final cut" segments, especially when you add your own 'flavours' to it.

    Thanks for the help, I'll start tackling this in the near future and would like to have some really awesome and professional segments with tutorials. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or concerns.

    I took at look at these: http://www.macprovideo.com/hub/category/final-cut but they're still more of "you can do this like this" than what i was thinking of. I think I'm going to make my own FCP Cool Segment Tutorials :)

    Re: Over Your Shoulder Tutorials
    Are you looking for tutorials that show you how to do specific "tricks"? We will be posting those throughout the year here, also. The first thing one should do is learn the individual tools. Then figure out how to use them to create on your own. But there are tutorials on specific "tricks" if that's what you're looking for. I for one have many posted all over. Others have lots of stuff all over. If you can do them yourself, what exactly do you need them for? I'm a bit confused. What tricks or techniques specifically are you looking for?
