Using Artbeats stock footage is an excellent way to enhance the storytelling value of your production. A common myth exists that says stock footage gives your production a cookie-cutter look.

In this tutorial I will show you how to breathe life into your stock footage in Final Cut Pro using techniques that take only 30 seconds. In this tutorial, I will use only two filters, the Color Corrector 3-Way and Brightness and Contrast filters found in Final Cut Pro.
