Announcing this new thing…

I’m thrilled to announce something totally new today!

This is a new direction for Izzy Video…

For the past several weeks I’ve been quietly working behind-the-scenes to create something totally new. And it’s finally ready.

I’m releasing a new Final Cut Pro X tutorial, but I’m doing something different with it this time.

Here are the bullet points:

  • 3 hours of training
  • 21 videos
  • Includes practice media so you can follow along

And the price?


My goal with this training was to try to make one of the most useful Final Cut Pro X training tutorials in the world and then give it away for free.

Where can you find it? It’s on YouTube. :)

Here’s the link:

Final Cut Pro X Tutorial from Izzy Video

Check it out and let me know what you think!

This is a new direction for Izzy Video, and I hope it’s useful to you.

  1. WOW! Unbelievable!!! I was just re-taking your intro course and now here comes this FREE up-to-date class!

    Thank you very, very much!!!

    All best wishes to you and yours!

    1. Thanks, Pam. I hope it’s useful. :)

    2. Thanks, Izzy. I hope this business is blessing your socks off.

    3. Thx IZZY. I need this now! Appreciate it very much. BJ

      1. I hope it helps! :)

  2. About time! Never hurts to brush up on the basics. Besides, “free” is the best kind of advertising! I believe that in the long run entrepreneurs make more through generosity than greed. Thanks!

    1. Sure thing, Judy! :)

    2. I agree, thanks for the free course, Izzy. It’s a welcome update to the previous one. I’ve already paid for courses, and am a member, so I appreciate it.

      Though I’m hard-pressed to understand how someone can think it is “greed” to be compensated for a creator’s time and efforts on something that others find valuable.

      1. Thanks for the kind words, Chris! I appreciate the support (and thanks for being such a great customer)! :)

  3. Thanx Izzy,

    I think this is very useful for me. Great job!

    1. Thanks, Wolke! :)

  4. Nice to know your latest FCPX tutorial is now on YouTube.

  5. You are a man with a generous heart, and a true teacher. Blessing on you and yours!

    1. Very kind of you to say, Jay. Thanks! :)

  6. Izzy, I am so appreciative of your generosity. Your tutorials have been incredibly helpful to me, and now, this updated version on youtube!!? Icing on the cake! I often refer back to your tutorials while creating videos. Thank you, Jayne

    1. Sure thing, Jayne. I hope it helps! :)

  7. Your videos are amazing…always so informative, helpful and every second is carefully presented to make for efficient, effective and enjoyable learning.

    Good luck with this. You deserve every success.

    1. Thanks, Dennis! :)

  9. What a terrific and generous idea!

  10. It’s definitely time for me to go through this course again and keep practicing.

    It was your free course that drew me to you, and it was the quality of your work that keeps me coming back for more. Your knowledge, conciseness, and brevity are like a balm to a learner’s mind.

    1. Wow, what a great comment! Thanks, Joanne! :)

  11. Awesome! I have been using your tutorials for developing all kinds of videos. The teens at our church are just getting into video production and this will be a big help to them.

    Thank You!

    1. Glad to help, Joe! :)

  12. Thank you, Izzy.
    Very generous and a fantastic way to show your appreciation to your customers.

    1. Thanks, Barry! :)

  13. A huge thank you to you Izzy for releasing an updated FCPX and making it free. I will still be recommending you to friends to subscribe to your IzzyVideo site as you have so much more there which you teach in such a way that all levels of editors can learn from. Continued success

    1. Thank you very much for the kind words, Bob! And for helping me spread the word. :)

  14. These look great, thanks Izzy

    1. Sure thing, Patrick!

  15. Thanks for your generous gesture. I haven’t had time for video work recently, but will enjoy checking out your videos.

    1. Thanks, Barbara. :)

  16. Izzy I discovered your course 7 years ago and have had nothing but praise for your tips, techniques, delivery and guidance. BTW your excitement is infectious!
    I’m a composer and made the offer to you of free use of tracks from my library. The offer still stands if you are interested.
    Thank you for you!

    1. Thanks, Craig. That’s quite generous! :)

  17. Thank you for so generously sharing your knowledge.

    1. Sure thing, Arnie. :)

  18. Hi Izzy. I’ve been using your original final cut pro tutorial for a few years now having previously struggled unsuccessfully with Final Cut express. Your tutoring was so clear and concise it wasn’t long before making short films became almost intuitive. Your new free course looks equally exciting. What I’m wondering now is will I have to upgrade my Final Cut Pro in order to benefit from it?
    Many thanks, Roy Ray, England.

  19. This is awesome Izzy, thank you. I’m also just about to launch a free series for businesses on making and using video. This way I get to help (as you are doing) a lot of business owners (hopefully) and some who resonate with me and my style will want to work with me, just as I know many will ant your personal help as well.

  20. Wow this is amazing. I just joined your membership and also finished some of your courses. I’d love to know which way your business is going. You do a great job teaching and I am currently going through your courses as I am creating a video for a destination…

    1. Thanks for the kind words, and welcome! :)

  21. Izzy,
    Thank you for what you are doing. I became a member/fan of yours several years ago. Your tutorials are concise, organized and well spoken and have helped me numerous times. It is obvious that not only are you a professional in all facets of video producing and editing, you are passionate about sharing your knowledge and expertise.
    To quote Steve Jobs: “the only way to do great work, is to love the work you do.”
    I hope the financial rewards to you will follow.

    1. Very kind of you to say, Midge. Thank you! :)

  22. Thank you for freely sharing your knowledge, skill and enthusiasm. No matter how experienced, there is always more we can learn and some of your tips are invaluable. May your generosity be rewarded in spades.

    1. Thank you very much, Chris! :)

  23. Thanks, Izzy! I’ve been pushing for a “New & Improved” FCPX tutorial since the latest version came out. I’m delighted to see it is now available (and FREE!)

    1. Sure thing, Tim! :)

  24. Great idea to expose how great your videos are to the world. Izzy you never stop thinking how to improve.

    1. Thank you very much, George! :)

  25. This is wonderful and much appreciated. Your tutorials are the best! Thanks, Neil

    1. Very kind of you to say, Neil! Thanks! :)

  26. Izzy, thank you. I’m glad this gift is feasible for you. It’s great for us members and non-members. It’ll encourage me to get on with making videos. FCExpress. seemed difficult, so never got around to using FCPX which I purchased.


  27. Izzy,
    I am beginning to edit a new film just wrapping up in production. This will be perfect timing. Thanks for your generosity!

    1. Sure thing, Michael! :)

  28. Merci beaucoup pour cette superbe générosité. Très apprécié.

  29. Thanks very much Izzy. Always useful to recap on some techniques not used often.
    You were already the best video tutor I’d tried and to add this free course as well….well! It’s fantastic.
    Thanks very much for your help and guidance.

    1. Very kind of you to say, John. Thank you! :)

  30. Izzy, as always your tutorials/presentations are excellent and well paced. The lessons are easy to follow and well demonstrated. This Final Cut Pro X tutorial is one of the best available and astonishingly it’s FREE! Anyone viewing it should take advantage of your special membership offer. The price is a bargain for what you get!

  31. Outstanding work Izzy, you are a great source of education in Final Cut and Motion, thanks very much for your generosity

  32. Everything I know about FCPX is thanks to you. Your video’s are the best, meticulously put together, great content, simply perfect! I’ve been a member for quite some time now, and still enjoy everything you publish. Great way to say thank you to your customers, really appreciate this! I wish you all the best!

  33. Thanks Izzy for your great tutorials so informative and very detailed. I am determined to follow your instructions and produce films for myself, family and friends. I feel confident I will be able to meet the challenge! Thanks again.

    Kind regards

    1. You’re welcome, Albert. Thanks for the kind words. :)
