Module 1: Final Cut Pro Editing This module contains digitizing and organizing source footage, editing sync and non-sync material, trimming sequences, editing audio, adding effects, creating titles, and outputting work to tape. Class time is divided between demonstration and hands-on practice time, with ample time for experimentation with engaging sample media. Students will edit several different types of footages. Students practice logging, digitizing and outputting to tape. Students will work extensively with FCPâ€™s digitizing and output tools.
Module 2: Post Studio Session In this class students receive several projects to work on. The power up sequence, drives, creating a new project and user settings, changing settings, digitizing, deck setup and trimming edits and output (Print to media, Edit to tape)
Module 3 Editing Aesthetics This courseâ€™s content includes telling stories through images, thorough discussion of “how we see”, the art and craft of editing with a practical analysis of emotional responses. The class is presented in a seminar fashion showing clips from over 100 years of cinema
Module 4 Introduction to graphic to Adobe Photoshop Photoshop is used to create complex graphics and enhance photographic images in the production of special effects in 2D, 3D, and moving images. This class introduces all phases of Photoshop, starting with the file browser, selection tools, and basic use of layers. Students learn how to create alpha channels, gradients text and text effects, how to use the pen tools, color correction.
Module 5 Advanced Editing Workshop Drawing upon knowledge of visual effects techniques, as well as previous training in story structure, trimming, and assembly, this section uses real-life footage to give students a chance to exercise their creative skills and get feedback. As a more advanced course, the class covers the differences in creating montages and straight-ahead narrative, while working to both perfect a montage (credit sequence, music video, and trailer, commercial) and to edit down a narrative scene to time.
Module 6 Intro to Adobe After Effects & Apple Motion
Module 7 Editing Audio in FCP This section focuses on FCPâ€™s audio editing toolkit and audio editing practices and techniques. This includes demonstration and exercises where students gain practical hands on experience. Finally, students will learn how to export their project media to Soundtrack Pro for further audio editing.
Module 8 Exporting-Mastering This section covers how to convert the project to different formats like MPEG, AVI, MOV, DV stream, HD etc. Mastering DVD & CD Using DVD Studio Pro, i DVD & Roxio Toast, creating (menu, chapter, Buttons) exporting & writing DVDâ€™s.
