Apple Pro Training Series: Keying and Compositing in Final Cut Pro X

Book Description

  Go beyond the powerful editing capabilities of Final Cut Pro X to create multilayered compositions. This eBook, which will be published as a chapter in the upcoming book Apple Pro Training Series: Final Cut Pro X Advanced Editing will help you build a foundation for keying green screen footage, modifying and animating effects, and compositing elements in your projects. Specifically, you'll learn to retime video clips, time clips to music, key a green screen shot, and combine layers of video and graphics to create a composite image.

Although this eBook does not include media and project files, you can read through the step-by-step exercises to understand the concepts. The companion files and an updated chapter will be available in 2012 as part of Apple Pro Training Series: Final Cut Pro X Advanced Editing.
