Editing Techniques

Final Cut Pro 7

This class was all about learning how to edit in Final Cut Pro 7.

For my final project I did a sort of all about me video that consisted of footage my dad filmed of me over the years as well as pictures. I had been wanting to digitize our home VHS collection for quite some time, so this project seemed like the perfect excuse. I borrowed my dad’s old VCR and bought Roxio Easy VHS to DVD. Worked like a charm!

Not only did I learn how to edit in general, but I learned how to add stills, giving them that Ken Burns effect, as well as adding text and transitions.
