My name is Bruce Macbryde a professional filmmaker and tutor for Final Cut Pro X. I have been using and teaching Final Cut Pro since its release in 1999. I was previously a trainer for Apple Authorised resellers during the 2000's and established as an independent Final Cut and iMovie trainer in 2006.
I am also a fully accredited Wedding Video producer, using that experience to hone my editing skills
I continue to produce tutorials about Final Cut Pro for youtube as well as teaching students worldwide via Skype with remote access via screen sharing to assist students directly.
A review of the newly released 2.3 version of Topaz Video Enhance AI by upscaling 720p footage to 4K
Perhaps the most impressive new feature with the 2.3 update is the the smooth slow motion or depending on your needs, the smooth conversion of frame rates
But in my mind the most useful for me is the Proteus AI model that allows control with 6 individual sliders to fine-tune de-blocking, detail recovery, sharpening, noise reduction, de-haloing, and anti-aliasing.
When you select the recommended models, then you can make alterations to those independently. You should start by setting to “Auto”, then by selecting the Preview button you can review the comparisons and then modify the parameters to suit.
If you’re new to video editing, how do you know what to do?
For sure, the process doesn’t come naturally – unless you are Stephen Spielberg.
As with anything, it all starts with planning what you intended to film. This will depend on the complexity of your video – but no matter what – you should have had some plan of what you were going to film.
In this tutorial, you will look at some simple things to get your editing started.
