What is a good training dvd set to get up to speed on FCP? I'm making the switch from Vegas. I would also hope maybe these dvd's would gear toward the Apple certifications.


Thanks,
John

I have used and recommend Ripple Training's Final Cut Pro getting Started

Final Cut Pro 6 Getting Started DVD Edition

Have a look at the samples and free tutorials to see if you like their style (screen capture with voiceover).

I have been learning FCP and Dreamweaver with Learning @ Your Own PaceŽ - lynda.com, I find it to have some very good material. The only drawback is that is done on-line via quicktime movies so you do need to be connected to the internet, although this has not been a problem for me. For an annual fee (around $200) they have a VERY LARGE library that you have total access to.

You can't go wrong with the Apple Pro Training Series. A book/DVD for each module in FCS

I agree...the books produced by the authors of Peach Pit are way too good in taking you step by step...I would highly recommend those over any other training material!!!
