This video is the very basics of editing in FCP X; how to add text, how to slice your clips, how to add generators, etc.
Hopefully I did an okay job with this video, I feel like I was rambling on; but, that is what happens when you talk for 20 minutes straight. I tried to touch on the important aspects of editing in FCP X.
***Note; everybody has a different style of editing, the way I edit might be different than someone else. Neither way is wrong, I feel you should edit the way that you are comfortable with editing. I have used Final Cut Pro since FCP 7, for about 10 years. While a lot has changed, one thing that hasn't is my habit for how I edit. ***
If you don't own FCP X, you can either purchase or download the trial version;
