Final cut pro exercises

As a photographer, and youtube content creator, I felt the need to bump up my video montage skills and I had to invest in the Final Cut Pro studio software, in order to satisfy all the needs for a successful youtube presence. I have purchased the soft and started with simple final cut pro exercises just by wathcing other people on youtube. Obviously working on a Mac environment it comes very easy to integrate all the softwares designed for multi media purposes. Please watch and enjoy a simple montage where the poor karate skills are just a reason for testing a multi cam footage situation and also few final cut pro tricks and cuts to make this montage watchable.

 

The video above has boon shot with 2 cameras Canon 5D Mark II, one handy cam Sony HDR-XR260 and one action cam Sony HDR-AS15k. The quality of the DLSR footage is fantastic and followed by a much lower quality of a simple Sony Handycam. The biggest difference is the size of the files, as DLSR’s are shooting uncompressed video and it takes only 10-12 minutes to fill up a 32GB CF card which proved to create an inconvenience for the professional videographer. The Handy cam can take many hours of footage but the image quality is not even close in comparison wotht eh Canon DSLR footage.

the Sony Action cam proves to be an interesting addition to anyone’ list of gadgets as for a small price, some can get wide angle footage and also up to 120 frames per second as super slow motion. The quality is not great in comparison with the exquisite DLSR footage, but for what it is and what it can do, a small action cam is a good tool to get only the special shots

I hope you enjoy this video and again, this is not about the poor karate skills, but an attempt to make a simple multi cam montage in FInal Cut Pro. We are going to explore in depth all the equipment used for this, and also tips and tricks for the Final CUt pro enthusiast such as myself.
