    i'm interested too, but not for this purpose

    maybe there should be a thread that lists good tutorial sites for many of these creative applications for newbies. i think that'd be really useful.

    sorry, i'm not much of help :eek:

    i'm just learning how to use Final Cut Pro/Studio in Film Class, theres some sort of Apple Training DVD you can get, i'm not sure where you would get that, probably the same place you would get Final Cut

    What Version? If 4 or 4.5 You Need To Get The Upgrade For $199 To Studio 5.1.2

    Final Cut Pro HD is obsolete and your original install DVD should be sent in with $199 to Apple for the Universal Binary upgrade to the full blown $1299 Final Cut Studio. DEADLINE to do this is March 20 - was December 20 so you are lucky to still have time to get it done. This is the cheapest upgrade from an application to four applications in the history of Apple.

    While that site is very good, I'm a really big newb. I can use imovie pretty effectively.

    Are there tutorials aimed at someone who knows only a little about video editing?

    Final Cut is nothing like iMovie
    I can understand how you can be lost, just like me:p
    Theres a LOT to learn, do you know anybody that uses it that you could ask for a little help to get started?

    you mean your trying tp cut the clip?
    because you don't really do that in final cut, what your supposed to do is set an IN and OUT point (press I and O when the cursor is in the right spot) then drag the clip over to the second player window...

    I got that now. :D

    But it took over an HOUR to render one minute of video. I know I have only 512 RAM but that's ludricious!
    :mad:
