Apple announced final Cut Pro 3 on Dec. 4, 2001. The latest version of the high-end videography application introduced OfflineRT — an offline format that holds up to five times as much footage as the DV format — and new professional color correction tools. It also added Mac OS X compatibility.
The Final Cut Pro PowerStart course includes basic to advanced editing, as well as compositing and motion graphics. It’s presented in DVcreators.net’s “chunkalized” learning environment in which the user is actually creating the tutorial projects, hands-on, in Final Cut Pro along with the “virtual instructor,” according to Josh Mellicker, president and CEO of DVcreators.net. The first tutorial, “Basic Edit,” introduces users to Final Cut Pro’s basic editing process.
In the “Advanced Edit” tutorial, you build a professional-level project with matched action edits, J-cuts, inserts, cutaways, reaction shots, moving title sequences, audio sweetening techniques and multi-layered composites, and motion graphics covering practically every essential tool, feature and video creation aspect of Final Cut Pro, Mellicker said.
DVcreators.net released the first Final Cut Pro PowerStart CD on the same day that Final Cut Pro was released in 1999. The company also offers a suite of tutorial products, as well as digital media creation workshops across North America.
