Final Cut Express Tutorial

Final Cut Express is a powerful editing application for the Mac. It’s a great step up from iMovie.

But many people struggle with the interface because it’s not intuitive to someone who hasn’t done professional video editing before. In fact, sometimes people look at Final Cut Express the first time, try to figure it out on their own, and then give up in frustration. Does this sound familiar?

Personally, I started in iMovie, then spent a couple years in Final Cut Express, and then moved to Final Cut Pro. With Final Cut Express and Final Cut Pro, the interfaces are so similar that it’s easy to use one if you’re familiar with the other.
