Often times you will need to edit footage from multiple cameras and an external audio recorder. To do this, you will have to create a multicam sequence, which is easier said than done.
In this second free lesson of our full course, Learn Final Cut Pro X, I offer a tutorial in creating a multicam sequence.
I will walk you through all the steps of creating a multicam sequence, both inside Final Cut Pro X and in using the third party app Plural Eyes, so you can begin creating more complex videos.Read More
Sometimes your footage isn't always perfect. However, if you know what you are doing in post production, you can use otherwise unusable shaky footage.
One of the better features of Final Cut Pro X is its ability to perform image stabilization to make your footage look less like a Jason Bourne movie.
In this, the first video in a five part series from inside of our new course, Learn Final Cut Pro X, I will show you how to use the stabilizer.Read More

I am excited to announce that we are launching our new course, Learn Final Cut Pro X, next Tuesday, May 31st! During the launch week we'll be releasing five free lessons from the course too, right here on the blog and on YouTube.

Last week I went to Las Vegas for the National Association of Broadcasters Conference. (Yeah, I know it sounds stuffy, but there are a lot of cool video companies and filmmakers that attend too.)
Somehow they manage to fill the entirety of all three halls in the convention center with gear and tech. SO MUCH VR.
My goal at NAB was to network with old friends, meet new ones, and share with you some new gear that you can use to make better videos.
Ultimately, we made seven videos at NAB and shot a review of the Canon 80D.
In this episode I share why I am putting this podcast on hold to focus on creating more video content for YouTube. I talk about doubling down, simplifying, following what is working, and how video is the best format for most of what I want to share & create.Read More
