Final Cut Pro X (10.1) Interface Windows

This is the first of 54 video lessons for learning Final Cut Pro X.  A new video will be released every few days.

Final Cut Pro X four main areas.

By default, you will have a libraries area, a browser area, a viewer window, and a timeline window.

Okay, let me reset things.

The libraries area contains a list of open libraries and events.

When you click on a library or an event, the content is displayed in the browser area.

A library or event may contain clips and projects, and projects always are displayed at the top of the list.

Double clicking on a project will reveal its contents in the timeline window.

The Viewer window allows you to view your content.  

So for example, when you drag through a clip or a project, you will see your content inside the viewer window.

Now, if you’re familiar with other mainstream video editing systems, you can think of a project as the equivalent of a sequence.  However, make note that the term project is its official name.

The active project is displayed in the upper left corner of the timeline window.  So in this case, it’s the Guns versus Hoses project.

Speaking of which, I’ll often refer to the official names of windows, buttons, icons at least once, so you can easily find those terms if you need to do a search within the Final Cut Pro X user manual.

To access the user manual, navigate to the help menu and select Final Cut Pro help.

So if I need help on creating a new project, a simple search will reveal an answer.

I realize there a lot more to cover within these interface windows, so hang tight. All of the buttons and functions will be explained in detail in later lessons.
