Izzy Video tutorials make it easy to learn video.

Check out my newly updated Final Cut Pro X tutorial! The rest of this site contains more than 200 video tutorials on topics such as video lighting, audio for video, using a video camera, editing in Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express, and more.

Introducing the “Introducer”

Lower thirds are great options for many (most?) situations, but sometimes you want something with a little more pizzazz, a little more excitement.

That’s where the “Introducer” comes in. This video demonstrates what an “Introducer” is…

Pretty cool stuff, right? :)

I started calling these special titles “Introducers” because that’s what they do: introduce a person or thing.

Why am I talking about this? I’ll be including an Introducer with each of my upcoming themes. Stay tuned for more info on them…

Burn a Higher Quality DVD from Final Cut Pro X – Izzy Video 273

Did you know there’s more than one way to burn a DVD from Final Cut Pro X?

In this new video, I show a couple different ways to do it. The first method is common, fast, and easy.

The second method is less common, but it’s worth knowing because you get higher quality results.

If you want to burn a higher quality DVD from your video projects, then make sure you give the second method a try.

This video is for members only. If you’re not already a member, click here to learn about a membership.

Moving a Camera

You can get some amazing shots by moving the camera when you’re shooting video.

That is… as long as it’s intentional. Accidental movement (shaky hands) tends not to look so awesome.

You have plenty of different options for moving the camera, and more are getting invented all the time.

This video briefly introduces several different ways to move a camera.

I hope you find it helpful!
