How I Edit Photo Moments in Final Cut Pro X ▶︎ My Expedited Workflow

Photo Moment - July 27, 2018

I produce THREE Photo Moments shows every week, so when it comes to editing them, every minute matters. My Final Cut Pro X workflow is very refined, using a series of custom effects presets and reusable assets. Check out my workflow and possibly pick up some tips for your Final Cut editing, and maybe offer some suggestions on how I can make mine even better!

Great job, your videos are fantastic! So, how do you make these chapter markers? The ones I made do not work via mobile devices.
super helpful, thank you!
Can a live show be edited and swapped out for the original livestream? If so, will the original comments and url be preserved?
When do you add transitions? If you add transitions, how do you decide that a transition is needed or not?
Personally I add them as I go and use them sparingly. There needs to be a reason for them. Don't use one just to use one and most importantly don't use anything other than a dissolve or fade to Black without a really good reason. They can just be distracting and look amateurish.
Brilliant! I learned so much, thanks for sharing.
Great video. Thanks for taking the time to go through this.
awesome video
Thank you
I need a editor any chance you can help
Yes please
Love this! Great to see your workflow. Got some time saving tips. I have used some presets but I see I can use even more!
Awesome work!😎✌️
