    Hi there, let me get straight to the point

    I used to work on Windows XP with Premiere (6.5 to most recent) and virtua dub for my AMVs

    Now that I changed to Mac and also to Final Cut I am a bit confused where to begin.

    For beginners: How to I get rid of the Audio stream?

    With viruta dub I could deactivate it, with premiere I could separate it form the video stream and delete it.

    Second: because premiere gave me a hard time with batch converting of single parts an episode I used virtua dub, which really was easy

    It seems like it is also a rather hard work getting certain scenes at once from a video footage so they can be used later in a new video

    Are there codec’s that Final Cut doesn’t not support at all or, like premiere, it does support it but it tends to mess up the end product (man I hated premiere for this)

    Are there tutorials that help me to understand the basic tools?

    And the last one, are the DV cams that don’t work with Final cut? I want to buy one soon so I can do the real thing

    Hope you can help me with that :)

    There is a rather large, and very helpful, set of manuals (including tutorials) that came in the box along w/the FCP discs and I think those would be very good place to start.

    The eight printed manuals that come in the FCS box :). Plus there are the two training DVDs that come with FCS that I have found very handy.
