Hi guys im new to editing and im basically asking for a few hints and tips.
I am mainly going to be editing/creating Video Game montages/episodes/videos but hey im only asking the steps to take to produce an edit, now how to edit it.
I have the following programs:
Final Cut Pro x
Adobe After Effects CS5
before i would do my editing in Sony Vegas Pro 10 but since ive moved onto mac im not aware of the steps i take to create a video because you cant do much in FCP on effects side.. and as im not too familiar with FCP im wodering if there is a program similar to Sony Vegas for the mac?
The steps i have been told to take though im not sure if are correct are:
Render my clips out in 59.94
Import them to After Effects for effects and Colour Corrections
Import back into FCP to piece together the montage/video
However i am confused, because how would i go about Syncing my shots with the beat of a music track, i thought that was done by slowing, speeding up and pausing clips to make it fit with the music?
Any help is much appreciated, i know you guys are probably looking at my post count and thinking im a leecher but im not, im here to stay i just would love to get better at video editing, please someone help me
