Books-Final Cut Pro 5/Final Cut Studio

Hello everyone,

I enjoy these forums.

Is there a book(s) that you recommend to learn Final Cut Studio and Final Cut pro?

Regards,

Gilbert.

Gilbert, it depends on your background and current skillset.

If you have been editing professionally on Avid, then I recommend "FCP for Avid Editors" because it teaches everything from the perspective of Avid. I'm not sure if they have updated the book to include new features in FCP5.

If you have been editing in other desktop editing programs like iMovie or Premiere, then I would suggest an intermediate level book like Apple's Pro Training series or maybe just the instruction manual that ships with Final Cut Pro. http://www.peachpit.com/bookstore/pr...321334817&rl=1

If you have never edited before, then I would suggest a beginners book or tutorial video.
