    While I am at the public library looking for a book about Final Cut Pro I don't see any FCP 8 or 9…I assume FCP 7 is really FCP X?

    Thank you

    There is no FCP 8 and 9. FCP 7 was the last "Classic", FCP X is the new one. The book from Peachpit Press just came out, so your library won't have it yet.

    I got that thing, but don't know how to read it. The visual attempt is somehow to complex for me.

    library has a copy of Pearpit Press's Final Cut 7 which came out last year I was not sure if it is the same as FCPX.

    ----------

    Very cheap but I rather to have a soft/hardcover book

    Nope, not the same.

    Amazon has the Peachpit book already. It is about 40 dollar or so (dunno how much Sterling that'd be). It's up to you if it is worth it to you.

    Sorry I failed to tell you that I had to learn it first :)
    My first tutorials were found in www.fcp.co then bought the Ripple Training vids. Now as far as a manual goes, the Ding Ding ones nail it on the head after you've had months with FCPX.
    Now of course the video clips dont help the original poster :(
    Im waiting for the advance books to come out.
    They just moved them back another 2 months :p

    Honestly, I "learned" FCP X by simply RTFM ;)
    Printed the manual to pdf, so I can read it on my old iMac (not supported - FCP X runs, but slow and no effects :( ), while fiddling around in FCP on the MBP
    I'm afraid there aren't too many many books out on FCP X (yet). Most tutorials seem to be published as videos nowadays.

    Which sucks cause I just finished teaching an After Effects class and had a deaf student along with two interpreters. It was tough to teach that one due to the time lag on communication but he managed to pass with great marks.
    Now he's looking for a book on FCPX.

    Videos with closed caption would be awesome!

    Wish there is a deaf teacher who could teach FCP but I don't think so.

    Looks like Larry Jordan has put most of his commercial tutorials on Youtube. You can watch them with closed captioning on.

    I just tested one of the videos. As Larry speaks very clear, there weren't any mistakes in the transcript.
