Coming Tomorrow: My new Basic Final Cut Pro X course!

I’m very excited to announce that my new Basic Final Cut Pro X course is coming tomorrow!

I still have a lot of work to do, but it should be ready for you tomorrow.

There will be two versions of the course:

  1. The free version where you can watch the training videos online.
  2. The paid version where you can optionally download the training videos along with practice media so you can follow along using the same media I use in the training videos.

This course consists of 36 videos, totaling a little over 2.5 hours of training.

Three Bonuses!

I love piling on the awesome when I launch new courses, and this time I’ve decided to include three bonuses.

You’ll get these bonuses free when you purchase my new course during the launch period.

Bonus #1

A mini-course that specifically covers many of the new changes in the 10.3 update of Final Cut Pro X ($20 value). This mini-course is approximately 30 minutes long and includes 11 videos.

If you want a quick introduction to many of the new features in the 10.3 update, I think you’ll like this mini-course.

Bonus #2

Five pieces of royalty-free music ($20 value). This is a collection of five pieces of music that you’re free to use in your projects royalty-free. It includes four piano pieces and one orchestral string piece.

We video creators know that you can never have too much royalty-free music in your library.

Bonus #3

A live one hour webinar with me where we’ll talk about media management and Final Cut Pro X ($20 value). I’ll schedule this toward the end of November and if you can’t attend live, I’ll send you a recording so you can watch later.

The price

I’ve almost settled on a price, so I’ll have that info for you tomorrow. But I can say this for sure: If you’ve already purchased my Basic Final Cut Pro X course in the past, or if you’re an Izzy Video Member, I’ll have an extra discount for you that’s deeper than the regular launch discount.

As you can imagine, I’m really excited to get this course into your hands (so to speak). I love training on Final Cut Pro X, and I really appreciate all the positive feedback I get from so many people!

Okay, I need to get back to work. There’s still lots to do before tomorrow’s launch!

Stay tuned… :)

  1. Can’t wait for the course.
    I used FCP7 for the longest time. I’m now finally switching to FCPX and I find it a bit strange and overwhelming, Help!!

    1. Well, yes this should help. :)

      1. It will definitely be a big help, Thiago. The previous free course got me off to a great start.

  2. That’s great Izzy I cannot wait

    1. Glad to hear it, Chris. This is a good one. :)


  3. I will be looking for it tomorrow. I have been able to do some basic projects using the help menu and getting some instruction from Apple, though they don’t offer that anymore. But I certainly know that I am missing certain aspects which would be very helpful to me.

    1. This should help you get up and running. Thanks! :)

  4. Super. I’m pretty good with FCPX, and have your original course, but there’s enough different in the new version I really am looking forward to working through your course! It can’t come soon enough.

    1. Glad to hear it will help. Thanks! :)

  5. Great news, Izzy. I hope you include more info about the ins and outs of Compressor. I use remote infrared trail cameras frequently which shoot footage in .avi. I have to use an external program to convert to .mp4 or .mov, but since its free I cannot do batches of clips. Compressor should be able to do this but I can’t get it to work. I hope you can suggest something. Thanks!

    1. Hi Judy. This course won’t go into Compressor, but I’m planning a different course for that.

      In the meantime, can you send me an email telling me a bit more about the dilemma?


  6. Looking forward to your new course as I am finding the new layout etc a wee bit daunting over here in a very wet Scotland. As I bought your original course I have found it to be excellent and I’m sure the new course will be every bit as good and informative

    1. Thanks for being a customer, Bob. And, yes, I tried to make this the best course yet. :)

  7. I’m hoping to log into your training sessions, Izzy. I’m trying to improve my FCP skills. I’ve used FCP since its early days. I’m struggling a bit with the X version but am getting along.

    1. Yes, it’s a big transition going from the old versions to X. This course should help. Thanks! :)

  8. I have several of your past courses, including FCPX 10.1 & the advanced 10.1, and I really appreciate that you’re offering an extra, deeper discount for those of us that have benefited from these past tutorial purchases. I’m certainly looking forward to the 10.3
    course. Thanks Izzy,Dan.

    1. Thanks for being such a great customer, Dan! :)

  9. If I want to take the course but my Tuesdays (and Thursdays) are booked pretty solid, how does the timing work?

    1. The whole thing is done online and at your own pace, so you can work it into your schedule anytime you’d like. :)

  10. That’s GREAT news Izzy. Looking forward to it!!

  11. I have been on FCP10.2. last week for some unknown reason when I opened FCP I was installed on the new version. My older version was even gone in my Application. At present its a nightmare, most of ny clips have gone offline and I got many, many Library on my external hard drive. looking at the new FCP I cant understand ROLES. Even the free tutorial dont sink into my brain-box. Hope you video will help

    1. One tip — to prevent automatically installing app updates, go to System Preferences > App Store and then uncheck the “Install App Updates” option. Once you do that, you’ll need to manually update your apps when there are updates available.

      The bonus mini-course I mentioned above has a section on roles. I hope that helps…

  12. Hi Izzy, I’ve been with you since 2011 and have purchased all of your courses… Because of you, I’ve been able to start and successfully run my own local video production business.
    My YouTube channel has close to 100 videos I’ve done for clients on many different subjects matters. Always interesting…
    And to top it off, whenever I’ve had a question, you’ve always answered my emails with proper and efficient direction.
    I will purchase your new course just for those nuggets you so elequently put in them. Each video makes me a better videographer.
    Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.
    A loyal and greatful student,

    1. Joe, I really appreciate you being a customer and the very kind words here. :)

      Congrats on the success!

  13. Izzy, whereas I have already paid for this course and you have improved it, do I get the revised course for free as I have already invested in your training?

    1. Thanks for being a customer, Mark. It’s not a free upgrade, but as I mentioned in the article above, I’m going to have an extra deep discount for any Basic FCPX customers (and members). You’ll qualify for that discount if you want the update. :)

  14. Thanks very much for the “even deeper” discount for us who bought the previous FCPX course, I’ve got both the basic and advanced versions.
    I was about half ways through the advanced section trying to implement some stuff on my footage when the 10.3 came and “bam!” we’ll have to start all over again.
    Looking forward to hearing about the price tomorrow :-)

    1. Sure thing. Thanks for being a customer! :)

  15. I am nearly finished the current version of the Basic course. I assume this will be coming down so I am finishing it just in time. I started editing on Premiere in the late nineties and eventually moved over to Final Cut (I think I transitioned when it was FCP3?) Got really comfortable in Final Cut 7 and have been resistant to X since it launched. I gave it a couple very brief tries, but stayed with 7. After I installed Sierra, I noticed some trouble brewing, so was considering trying X one more time and then they coincidentally introduced 10.3. Downloaded the trial and I think this will be a permanent switch. The toughest thing for me was obviously the timeline. I wanted to be able to extend audio underneath the adjacent audio clip and was frustrated. And then it all made sense. Detach the audio or make a connect edit overtop. Starting to like it now. Anyway, will there be any differences to this new Basic course when compared to the last one? Other than the interface changes of 10.3?

    1. The revised basic tutorial will cover pretty much everything the previous version of the basic course covered, only with the new interface. There are a couple additional things here and there.

      The bonus mini-course does a quick overview of many of the new features in the update. That might be something that would be helpful to you.

      Also, I’m leaving the previous version of the Basic course up for the time being because some folks aren’t upgrading (or can’t based on their OS version).

      I’m glad to hear you like FCPX. I like it too. :)

  16. Izzy, so glad you’re doing this update. I couldn’t even find how to add music, text, and photos. I hope my software upgraded properly.

    1. Yes, those items were moved. You’ll see in the bonus mini-course those types of changes.

  17. Looking forward to it!!
