Hi Ben: As a long time member of Lynda.com it is my pleasure to tell you that your Final-cut Pro X is the best course I have ever taken on line. I came in with a "missing-file" problem on a project for a client and your explanition of how Final-Cut stores Data was easy to understand, (even for a novice) and set me on the path to recovery. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Ben Balser is a great instructor. I've learn much from this course and now use 'Key Wording' folders for every project I do.

Great course. At some points, it gets slow by saying unnecessary things like "final cut pro makes things easy" and calls database kind of stuff fun. But, it's very useful.
Some of the material, like compound clips and auditions, is covered in more detail and more clearly on the editing courses.
Overall, very useful. It's a dry subject, and you'll probably need some experience trying to make your own short films before understanding what's going on.

This is a GREAT course. I have never left feedback before, but this one really deserved it. This is a topic that can be quite a hassle to take care of learning. It's not particularly interesting and we all think we can just wing it. The truth is, the way we manage content is the reason for a project going smoothly or painfully. I also love that this course goes into some detail about how Final Cut Pro X looks at files and some of the codecs for different cameras. It doesn't just stick to the apple stuff, but rather speaks in terms of a person who understands they may use Final Cut and love it, but not everyone uses the same Editing Software. Thanks for this course!!!

This had numerous tips to help with the Libraries format and storage of FCP 10.1. Ben also touched on so many other features I did not know existed in FCP. Showing how he personally uses the program was great. That is what I look for is workflow styles that I can adapt to my use. Thanks Ben *****
