Video Tutorials: May 2011 Archives

If you work with multiple user accounts on your editing system, what happens if you forget the password for one of the users?

This becomes a problem is that particular user has left critical files on the desktop.

Even an administrator will not be able to access the other user's desktop.

Fortunately, you can activate the 'super user' or 'root' account.

You'll then be able to retrieve data from that particular user's desktop.
Here is a quick tutorial showing the advantages of mapping the Add Edit function to your keyboard versus using the Blade Tool.

Here's a short tutorial on how to create the 'Pleasantville' effect using Apple Color's software.  Apple Color is included within the Final Cut Studio package of software products.

I recently attended the 'unveiling' of Final Cut Pro X, and it appears that Apple has integrated the major features of Color within the next version of Final Cut Pro.  It will be interesting to see what happens to Apple Color.  My guess, is that it will be at the end of its life after Final Cut Pro X ships.

For what it's worth, here's a great tutorial on using Apple Color to isolate and shift a particular color.  Enjoy!
