TME Project – Using the Final Cut Pro

As you all know by now 😉 My biggest role in this project was to edit all the videos + photos and create vlogs.

It was quite a time consuming and hard job since I had barely any experiences on editing videos professionally – so that it can be uploaded on to the YouTube. I am sure there are people who are just as lost as I was/am around the world. Hope this can help you to start editing videos!

So the program I used is Final Cut Pro X. I found this much simpler, simply because it is quite similar to the iMovie. Screen Shot 2017-11-18 at 11.44.10 pm.png

This will be the first screen you will see when you open up the Final Cut Pro. Yes – too many buttons = headache haha.

First click the button on the top left hand corner (in blue) – This is your Library. You can simply click on to that and add New project/event/library. Screen Shot 2017-11-18 at 11.46.54 pm.png

If you have created the New project, now you need to import photos/videos to start creating your own video. Press where the arrow is and this will take you to the new window where you import your resources.

Now, you are good to start editing!

Transition/Title – these are very important features in editing the video. You can always use what you already have in the program, however, I looked through some website and found a pretty cool site where you can download some free sample title/transitions and plug them into your program.

When you install those new features, you will see the names underneath just like the photo here;

And now you might think, where can I find transition then?

If you go to far right hand side and look down, you will see those little 7 buttons and here you are:

Transition is a very useful thing to use when you are editing. Whenever you are changing the scene, it make s huge difference on how your video looks like. It makes the video flow nice and smoothly. You can simply add them by dragging them into the video.

I shall share more information by editing this post!
