Final Cut Pro 6 Video Tutorial – Editing Basics 04: Importing Video (1) – MPEG-2






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.

We’ve seen largely how Final Cut Pro works. We now enter Part II, where we learn how to import video files in different cases. In this video tutorial, we will see we can use MPEG-2 files with Final Cut Pro.
