Apple Pro Training Series: Final Cut Pro X 10.1: Professional Post-Production (Digital Video & Audio Editing Courses)

The Apple-Certified Way to Learn

This all-new guide presents a real-world workflow from raw media to finished project to demonstrate the features of Final Cut Pro X and the practical techniques you will use in editing projects. Using professionally acquired media, you’ll utilize the same tools and editing techniques used by editors worldwide in this revolutionary editing software. Renowned editor and master trainer Brendan Boykin starts with basic video editing techniques and takes you all the way through Final Cut Pro’s powerful features.
 
The lessons start as real world as it gets–with an empty timeline. After downloading the media files, you will be guided through creating a project from rough cut to final edit. The basic workflow and tools are covered in Lessons 1 through 4 where you will create a rough cut. The real-world workflow continues through the remaining lessons as you take the basic project and enhance it with a deeper dive into the more advanced Final Cut Pro X features including how to efficiently organize and share media with the new Libraries, enhanced audio tools, streamlined media management, retiming, and more.
 
•  Downloadable lesson media files to work sequentially through exercises for hours of hands-on training.
•  Focused lessons teach concepts and take students step by step through professional, real-world editing scenarios to create a final project.
•  Chapter review questions summarize what students learn to prepare them for the Apple certification exam.
 
The Apple Pro Training Series is both a self-paced learning tool and the official curriculum of the Apple Training and Certification program. Upon completing the course material in this guide, you can become Apple Certified by passing the certification exam at an Apple Authorized Training Center.

  1. NOT a comprehensive FCPX book and NOT a good book to teach from. I, too have been teaching Final Cut Pro for over a decade and have been a certified trainer with Apple since version 3 of the program. On three separate occasions (2 three day classes and one 6 day class) I tried teaching from this book to different levels of students. One thing I can say for certain is that I am not a fan of teaching from this book! 

  2. Best Book On Final Cut Pro X On The Market I studied Educational Psychology in college, have been in media production my whole life, and I’ve been teaching Final Cut Pro professionally for a decade, and have over time memorized every version ever be published of these ATPS books for FCP. 

  3. Because of updating to the software vs. when the … Because of updating to the software vs. when the book was published, updates for the book are available as a PDF download. But…not a revised book, but rather, revised sections within various pages of the book. This means you have to constantly go back and forth between the book and the PDFs, which is time-consuming and somewhat confusing. I think since I’ve already purchased the product, the entire book should be updated and available as a PDF.
