Final Cut Pro 6 Video Tutorial – Editing Basics 02: Workflow 1






Over the next several days, we are going to release several or up to a dozen video tutorials for Apple’s Final Cut Pro 6. This series is intended for those who have just started using Final Cut Pro 6 without prior experience in digital video editing and need some guidance. We, MacHouse, edit more than 200 videos each year, using Apple Final Cut Pro. So we can help you.

This Final Cut Pro 6 video tutorial series is for offline editing. That is, we assume that all video clips are stored on a hard disk drive. So we don’t import videos from video cameras.

In the second video of the tutorial series, we go over Final Cut Pro 6’s basic functions. We try to import a set of files to Final Cut Pro, which is not a problem. But when we bring a video clip to Timeline, we get a message that says “This clip does not match this sequence’s settings or any of your sequence presets.” Now, what do we do? And what does a red line at the top of the Timeline window indicate?

Keywords: New Project, Bin, Sequence, Sequence Settings, Frame Size, Pixel Aspect Ratio, Anamorphic, Editing Timebase, Compressor, Audio Settings, Item Properties, Format, Duration, Modify, Alpha Type, Straight, Unrendered
