AdoramaTV presents DSLR | Video Tips with Richard Harrington. In this episode, Rich answers some of your recent questions about the time-lapse workflow on a mac computer.
Join him as he takes you through the process of building a time-lapse sequence using Final Cut Pro 10.
In earlier episodes, you learned how to work with your processed or RAW files in Adobe After Effects, including techniques such as color stabilizing, adding a vignette, or scaling and sizing over time. The Final Cut Pro 10 post-production process is the next step when creating compelling and unique time-lapse animations.
Final Cut Pro X has several tools that let you sort, sift, filter, and find the perfect shot. You can use embedded metadata as well as attach powerful keywords to improve your ability to locate the perfect shot. In this chapter you'll learn the many ways to organize your media.
The act of video editing is not really about learning which buttons to push. The hardest part of editing is learning how to cull through large amounts of footage to find the “good parts”—the best sound bites, the most expressive b-roll, and the shots that just work. Of course, you then have to figure out how to put all of those pieces together.
In a sense, the act of editing video is much like having ten different jigsaw pieces mixed together. You have to find the right pieces and figure out how they go together while ignoring the pieces you don’t need.
Let’s just say that getting organized will be a critical step in your journey to a compelling story. Fortunately, Final Cut Pro X has several tools that let you sort, sift, filter, and find the perfect shot. You can use embedded metadata as well as attach powerful keywords to improve your ability to locate the perfect shot.
In this chapter we’ll explore the many ways to organize your media. Although you may want to skip ahead, we encourage you to tough it out. Learning how to organize an edit will make the whole process run faster and ensures that you’ll have the best shots at your fingertips.
