Last time I spoke with them, the good people at Lynda.com are still working on creating their training courses for the controversial new FCPX. In the meantime, though, they’ve created a very helpful set of videos on transitioning from the old FCP 7 to the latest version.
This course, taught by award-winning writer/producer/director Abba Shapiro, is intended for people who are already quite familiar with editing in FCP 7–it’s not a beginner course. But if you’re a FCP 7 user who’s ready to start gearing up for working with X, this is the course for you.
It’s only 3 hours long, and you can use my favorite Lynda.com feature to watch it at double speed in half the time. If you don’t have your own Lynda.com account, just stop by the lab or the WIC desk and we’ll log you in in one of our computers.
