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.
This tutorial is focusing on your first visit to Motion from within Final Cut Pro, doing a simple change in Motion and round tripping back to Final Cut Pro.
I find that in learning Motion it is best to keep it Simple to start and then progress to more complex things when you have the basics under your belt.
For this tutorial I will just modify a Title that is supplied with Final Cut Pro – I’ll change the default words, the font and colors – they will still be modifiable in Final Cut Pro.
Along the way, you’ll see some of the ways to work in Motion.
Let me assure you as a Final Cut editor, you don’t have to be a coding expert or full-time animator to get real benefits from Motion. Just keep it simple and take it one step at a time. No need to get complex unless you want to and you have the basics under your belt.
You’ll be able to enhance your Final Cut Edits from the very first attempt at Motion- I promise.
This video will answer your questions about which model MacBook Pro to buy for video editing
M1 PRO or M1 MAX.
or should you wait for the 2022 iMac or MacPro?
I also compare the new MacBook Pros against the first version M1 MacBook Pro and the 24” iMac, suggesting who should consider those for video work.
The new M1 PRO/MAX models redefine on-the-go Video editing, In performance, battery life, screen display, and portability. But, are they the only choice for video editors or will the 13” M1 MacBook Pro or 24” iMac fill your needs?
In earlier versions of the macOS you were able to change the color of folders by right clicking on the folder and selecting a color, but all it does in the current versions of macOS is add a colored dot and doesn’t affect the actual folder itself.
Here’s a quick way to change the folder color for free.
