Apple Final Cut Pro: Nudging – or How I Stopped Worrying and Started Editing Multi-Camera Shoots with Final Cut Pro (FCP Quick Tip #28)

Chapter: Editing

Topic: Multicam

I was recently asked to edit a multi-camera interview show. One the base level it doesn?t sound like that big of a deal until I found out that none of the cameras used the same time code, talent and host audio were recorded separately on each camera, and the third camera was using the built in camera mic. This of course could lead to all sorts of headache and hassle, but a few keyboard shortcuts and some meditation before editing solved my problem, and maybe yours too in this Final Cut Pro Quick Tip.

Using Complementary Equalization

Chapter: Audio

Topic: Equalization Settings

One of the hardest things to overcome in mixing is the hearing limitation known as masking. Masking is one sound covering up all or part of another sound because the frequencies of the two sounds are close. The sound that is slightly louder sort of “wipes out” the other sound.

Adobe After Effects: Glass Pulverization

Chapter: Titling

Topic: Titling Animation

Because English is his second language you really need to know After Effects moderately well to follow all the steps. Some additional plug-ins are needed, but most are available in demonstration form.
