(Calen has also received his certification as an Apple trainer for Final Cut Pro X)

In this course, you will learn everything you need to know about editing in FCPX. Whether you are starting fresh and learning to edit for the first time, are coming from another editing platform like Premiere, or you have been using FCPX for years and want to dive deeper and speed up your workflow, this course will get you up and running in no time. We will show you all our tips and techniques on how we edit fast, how we craft our wedding films from scratch, our entire color grading process, as well as how we clean up audio and mix it into our films. We also showcase other fun but helpful techniques like how we approach music. We all know that song choice can make or break a film, but sometimes not knowing how to edit in a song can make or break a film too. We show you how to do things like mixing songs that are in different keys and reshaping a song so that you can bring your films to life with music. We cover how we setup all of our keyword collections for quick navigation so that you can speed up your editing time and also we’ll probably blow your mind with FCPX's Multicam feature that can be used not only for syncing clips and editing, but also color grading and mixing audio quickly.

You get it all in this course – everything we know about creating beautiful and emotionally captivating wedding films.

We will be going over our entire workflow from Import to delivery. 
What we will be discussing in our Class will be broken down into 5 stages:

TRANSFER   PREP   EDIT   MASTERING   DELIVERY

TRANSFER

The Transfer stage is your first step for setting yourself up for a fast and effective workflow. 

I know it’s the least glamorous stage and probably not as fun as other stages, but it’s so important to do it right. We discuss how we take the footage from our cameras and transfer them to our external hard drive as well as properly setting up our folders and renaming files so that once imported, our smart collections instantly populate with the proper clips

PREP

The most time consuming and the most time SAVING stage is the Prep Stage. It involves the most steps but drastically reduces your editing time if you can master this stage and put in the extra time. This section of the class will showcase how we properly set up our libraries, import our clips and add corresponding meta data, sort our footage into our template based keyword collections, and setup our multicams.  


EDIT

Editing+Gif.gif

Then the fun part begins - editing! Actually, the fun part for Calen was the prep stage and Kristine loves the editing stage.

Since we put in the time to prepare all of our clips, the Editor can now focus on the best parts of the wedding and start pulling out the different dialogue sections and browsing for songs. When working in the magnetic timeline, there are multiple ways of crafting an edit. We choose to use the magnetic timeline by placing all of our dialogue clips such as ceremony and toasts into the primary storyline and then placing our other sequenced shots or b-roll footage above the magnetic timeline into what is called a connected storyline. We cut up our music a lot and layer multiple sections together at times, so this structure has been the easiest and most efficient way for us to edit. 

One of the most loved and hated but very misunderstood things about Final Cut is the magnetic storyline. We didn’t utilize it up until recently and once we discovered how to properly use this feature, we realized it was actually incredible. It took about two weddings editing with this method before we got used to it and quickly realized we had been wasting so much time before it...

MASTERING

Once we have created a rough edit, we then start finalizing our film and begin the Mastering stage. (ok this is actually my favorite part) This stage includes fine tuning shot selections, in depth audio mastering, color balancing and grading, as well as implementing any effects or title sequences before exporting the film. (Here’s a little tip, we actually do all of our audio effects inside the multicam as well as some of our color grading so that the effects populate accordingly throughout the film because of their nested multicam properties. So you should be using multicams instead of synchronized clips to take advantage of this awesome feature. Pretty powerful)


Delivery+gif.gif

DELIVERY

After the film has been exported, we then move onto the Delivery stage. Now every company has different deliverables and ways they choose to send their films off to their clients. As of 2018, we now deliver all of our films through digital delivery via Mediazilla. If you haven’t heard of Mediazilla, check out the link in our description. It makes life so much easier and simpler for us. Now there are still package upgrades we offer that do require shipping out a physical product, but we are just going to address our online delivery setup.
