Hi folks! I am not a pro video guy at all and I have wanted to give Final Cut Pro X a try for a while now but stayed away because of all the mixed reviews. I mess around on iMovie as a hobby and wanted to see what it would be like to take it to the next level. With the recent updates done to FCPX, I decided to consider it again, but for a person who isn't using it professionally, the $300 price tag was a little steep just to play around a little. Luckily I got an email from paypal letting me know of a special on iTunes gift cards. They were offering 20% off of them and are still doing it until Christmas I believe. I went to Best Buy to see if they would match that offer so that I could purchase it through them and also gain reward points and use my $10 reward zone certificate. They said they would. Woot! What made the deal even better was I saw that I could get another $20 off just by opening up a Best Buy charge card. I have no problem doing that as I pay my balances off every month and rarely pay any interest. I also get more points when I use that card for a purchase. Long story short, I got three $100 iTunes gift cards for a total of $210 which means I will be downloading FCPX for $90 cheaper. Win! Unfortunately, since I had the brand new Best Buy charge card I also ended up buying a PS4 too but thats a whole other story... lol Anyway, I was hoping that some of you could share some resources that would be important for a noobie to know. I am going to do my research but figured I would ask around here so I don't miss anything. I appreciate you taking the time to share your suggestions with me. Thanks!
