Hi Guys

As some of you would be aware, I'm taking up the challenge of video with the new DSLR

I decided to purchase FCP, (Final Cut Pro), for my video editing and start the new learning curve

In my research, I came across this guy,

http://www.izzyvideo...pro-x-tutorial/

There are some good instruction there for free viewing, I liked it so purchased the download, good 2 hrs of training

Hi Gary,

 

Just looked at it in the iMac app store.  In CDN $, that's a fair chunk of change.

 

You ARE taking up that video challenge!  Are you going to be using the D4S?  I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with; and how you find Final Cut Pro.

Hi Mark

At the moment, there is still a 30 day trial on FCP, (I think its still going?)

Im still using the trial option which is still running, when it ends, I will purchase

I have been viewing the FCP video by Izzy at the above link, been excellent, must be about 2 hours of training in the package

 

I will use the D4s for video, mainly for grandkids events etc and will use FCP for editing time-lapse 

Ive only had one try but got the exposures wrong etc, didn't even read the instruction book  :) So the result shows all the mistakes

 

Here it is, just some rough footage to learn how the camera controls work with focus and exposure

Nothing special,

Your right, FCP is a fair amount of cash but is a lot more powerful than it looks and a whole lot more power than Adobe Premier Elements, the Adobe Premier is about $900 I think"

The other option is to go iMovie, FCP baby sister and the interface is about the same and if you decide to upgrade, the learning curve is easy apparently

Lastly, there are free training videos for iMovie over at Vimeo

.......Gary
