Intro to Final Cut Pro X (3 week course)
Tuesday, October 8, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (CDT)
Discover the power of Final Cut Pro X in creating many types of engaging video projects. In this 3-week course, you’ll work with both documentary and narrative footage while you learn the strategies to organize, edit, and refine your material within a robust post-production workflow. You’ll also dive into the ins and outs of effects, color correction, audio design, title creation, metadata management and other exciting features to give your program the appropriate structure and depth.
By signing up for this course, you are agreeing to attend ALL 3 sessions:
Interested in this workshop? Great! We just want to make sure you're ready to go. This workshop expects that all participants have a good working knowledge of:
• Mac navigation techniques
• Mac OSX folder hierarchy
• Basic video editing concepts (even if coming from a different editing software)
If you're unsure about your familiarity in the first two of these areas, we strongly recommend that you take our "Jumpstart Your Tech" class. If you are brand-new to video editing, we also strongly recommend that you prepare yourself by watching the first several chapters of the Final Cut Essential Training on lynda.com.
To ensure that participants get the most from our programs, the CiTE now categorizes our offerings by designating the levels of technological knowledge and skill for which the program has been designed.
This workshop has been designated as:
Experienced: Designed for individuals who have a working knowledge of the technology that will be used in the session and want to learn to apply it better

CiTE Standards & Expectations
Timeliness and attendance:
Workshop participants need to arrive on time. Admittance to the workshop may be denied if participants are more than 15 minutes late. We of course prefer that you 0 minutes late!
Why would we turn you away from a free faculty workshop, when we realize and appreciate that you have so much else going on? A couple of reasons:
Tardiness often causes unwanted distractions for the rest of the workshop attendees, thereby affecting their overall enjoyment and understanding of class material.
Tardiness often causes a situation where the class needs to totally “stop” in order to get the late participant(s) caught up. This is not only a distraction to all else in the room, but it hinders class progress and may even affect workshop learning outcomes.
**Participants who are more than 15 minutes late or leave more than 15 minutes early may be denied the workshop stipend.**
Distracting (web and mobile-based) activities:
Workshop participants must only work on workshop content during the duration of the workshop. We know it’s tempting to surf the web, check email, or even take care of personal business while you’re in our classroom. However, some workshop participants have been abusing personal web-surfing time—something their peers have said is extremely distracting. Please limit personal web-surfing and email-checking to the break (we promise we’ll give you one!) If you are repeatedly observed breaking this protocol, we will likely ask you to leave the workshop.
