Final Cut Pro X Cookbook
Written in cookbook style, this book offers many recipes to edit slick, professional videos with FCPX. Each recipe contains step-by-step instructions followed by analysis of what was done in each task and other useful information. The book is designed so that you can read it chapter by chapter, or you can look at the list of recipes and refer to them in no particular order. If you've been toying around with iMovie and want more power or you've taken FCPX for a whirl and simply can't find the fastest, most efficient workflow, this book will help! Veteran editors will find just as much useful info as FCPX is radically different than its predecessor, Final Cut Pro 7.

In Final Cut Pro X, Apple redefined the editing process in such a way that editors who start working with it need to keep their mind open. Sometimes this can lead to real frustration. And that’s when this COOKBOOK comes in.
This COOKBOOK is meant for editors who had previous experience with editing software that’s available in the market. The author uses an easy to understand “recipe” format to describe every useful aspect of the editing process, from ingest to export. Each proposed recipe’s steps are straightforward so the reader get’s to the point and achieves his editing goals. It’s “Food for thought”, sort of. And as such it is a welcome addition in every editor’s library of books he should own.
