Final Cut Pro 4, a professional video-editing tool, is a major upgrade of Apple's Emmy award-winning editing software for film, high-definition video, standard-definition video, and DV. Final Cut Pro 4, introduces RT Extreme for real-time compositing and effects, powerful new interface customization tools, new high-quality 8- and 10-bit uncompressed formats, and for the first time in an editing system costing less than $100,000, full 32-bit floating point per channel video processing. Final Cut Pro 4 also includes three completely new integrated applications: LiveType for advanced titling, Soundtrack for music creation and Compressor for full-featured batch transcoding. Video that's edited with the tool can be outputted to any professional video format: TV, VCR, computer monitor, or the Web (in the form of Web streaming media). Final Cut Pro 4 for Max OS X: Visual QuickPro Guide introduces video producers to the comprehensive set of tools available in the video-editing tool. Step-by-step instructions lead readers through the basics and quickly into more advanced projects in video editing. All the important features of the application are covered in detail: the easy-to-use interface, plug-and-play capability, as well as a host of other features and tools that enhance workflow and productivity.

Lisa Brenneis here provides in-depth coverage of Apple's professional video editing software in this updated guide. "FCP Protocol" sidebars give readers additional insight into the whys and wherefores of Final Cut Pro practice.

Synopsis:

If you've been avoiding high-definition video because in order to edit it, you would have had to purchase a secondary card (not to mention an HD TV to view it on), you can finally hop on the HD bandwagon. With Final Cut Pro HD, you can now import, edit, and export HD video over FireWire--no extra hardware or media conversion required! Knowing you won't want to waste a second getting up to speed on it, video pro Lisa Brenneis has completely updated her best-selling guide on the topic. In this task-based guide, step-by-step instructions combine with loads of visual aids and time-saving tips to move you quickly through Final Cut Pro basics and on to more advanced topics like creating transitions and motion effects, and filter and rendering options. In the process, you'll learn about all of the program's most important features, including those new to HD: real-time color correction, the ability to toggle between full-resolution, high-quality playback or preview mode, and more!
