#1 Computer Specs
In this module I explain what specs are important for your video editing machine and I also give you my recommendations on what to buy and why.
#2 Video Editor Overview (FINAL CUT PRO)
Knowing where you find all the settings, effects, scopes etc. Is crucial for a fast workflow. So in this module I give you an introduction to my video editing app of choice – Final Cut Pro X. Other video editors have the same tools, but you usually find them at different places and they are called slightly different.
#3 Optimized Media & Proxies
You can also edit videos, even in 4K, on slow computers. But to do so, you either have to create optimized or proxy media files from your original footage. Here I explain you exactly what it is and when and how to use it.
#4 Storage & File Structure
Over time, you will record terabytes of video footage. So you will need a lot of storage and you need to structure your folders in a way that makes you find everything easily. Also importing your footage into your video editor from specific folder structures can make editing faster. So here I show you how I handle storage and file structure.
In this module I teach you my video editing workflow step by step. We’re starting with important shortcuts, how I arrange my clips in the timeline, how I cut to music, how I add animations, special effects and a lot more.
I also share with you how I export my videos for good quality on social media.
#6 Editing Transitions
Fancy transitions are definitely over-used. But the reason for that is that many people love seamless transitions. So in this module I show you how to edit transitions, so that they actually look good and not amateurish.
Editing timelapses is a bit special, depending on how you shoot them. Especially if you shoot single photos (what I recommend for best quality), there are a lot of steps involved to bring it to life. In this module I show you exactly how I edit different kinds of timelapses.
Audio is incredibly powerful. It can change the complete mood of your video, even if the clips stay exactly the same. Especially when to comes to voice, the audio is oftentimes more important than the video. In this module you’ll learn, how I edit and enhance voice, music and how I do my overall sound design with sound effects.
#9 Color Grading Crash Course
Learning how to color grade takes a lot of time and would be too much for this course. But it’s also an important part of the video editing process. So I included a quick crash course on color grading in this course as a bonus. Of course if you really want to learn color grading and create your own looks, definitely look into my color grading course or get the LWP all access pass to save some money.
