Music videos are so 80s/90s, right? They belong with the era when MTV screened wall-to-wall vids instead of 'reality' TV? Try telling that to the millions who bought Gangnam Style; were they really simply loving the music? 1.6bn (and still climbing) have viewed the video on YT, not to mention the many re-makes (school eg, eg2), viral ads + celeb link-ups (even political protest in Seoul) - and it doesn't matter how legit it is, this nightmare for daydream Beliebers is making a lot of money, even from the parodies + dislikes. All this for a simple dance track that wouldn't have sounded out of place in 1990 ... but had a fun vid. This meme itself was soon displaced by the Harlem Shake. Music vids even cause diseases it seems!

Final Cut Pro X getting started

I added some specific tips to the mediatechtips blog: FCPX tag.

I've also added a vodcast in this post, covering most of the basics you need.

FCPX has been around a for a few years now; before doing anything else, I'd check any guides you are about to use reflect the latest version (or the version you are using, which may not be up to date!!!). Use the Wiki.

Apple provides a very clear guide: (I've included the full link as you can see you might need to check for an updated version)

You can also get an Apple manual.
