Publisher Comments:

In the only Apple-certified guide to advanced video editing techniques, award-winning filmmaker Michael Wohl delivers comprehensive training in the real-world skills that professionals use every day. Working through six hours of superb raw footage on two DVD-9 discs, you’ll learn to cut dialogue, action, comedy, chases, fights, interviews, documentaries, music videos, and multi-camera projects, as well as complete an entire audio mix.

Unlike other software books, Wohl teaches you to use Final Cut Pro’s advanced features while you explore the art of crafting a story on film. So, for example, rather than just learn how dynamic trimming works, you’ll learn why it works and in what situations you’d want to use it. And as you perfect your split edits, you’ll learn to match angles, cut for reactions, and use cutaways and inserts effectively in dialogue. You’ll discover how editing choices make comedy funny, drama moving, or chases suspenseful. Along the way, Wohl shares valuable tips on creating polished transitions, refining rough edits, and fixing screen direction errors. The book also covers audio editing and finishing, managing clips and media, transcoding video, and working with film and 24p—all in the context of making you a better editor and a more effective storyteller.

Synopsis:

Final Cut Pro is a serious tool for serious (usually professional) editors. If you're like most users, you already know the software's interface, are well-versed in editing basics, and are interested in just one thing: going as deep as possible with the software's tools and features. In 'Apple Pro Training Series: Advanced Editing and Finishing Techniques in Final Cut Pro 5, ' award-winning video editor Michael Wohl provides you with step-by-step instruction in all of the tasks real filmmakers are most interested in: cutting dialogue scenes, action scenes, fight and chase scenes, documentaries, comedy, music videos, promos, and multi-camera projects. Also covers Soundtrack Pro, audio finishing, managing clips and media, and working with film and 24p. Each chapter in this self-paced, Apple-authorized guide represents a self-contained lesson, with a project to complete, a review section, and bonus exercises to reinforce what you've learned. The accompanying DVD includes lesson files and all the materials you'll need to complete the book's projects
