Course programme

Final Cut Pro is a professional non-linear editing system developed by Apple Inc. that has found popularity amongst independent filmmakers and Hollywood film editors alike. The program has the ability to edit many digital formats including, SD, HDV, HD, Panasonic P2, Sony XDCAM, 2K, 4K, and IMAX film formats. The system is currently only available for Mac OS X version 10.4.9 or later.

Salient Features
Broad Format Support:
Final Cut Pro 6 lets you edit virtually anything with the highest possible quality, including camera-native editing of leading SD and HD formats. Work with DV one day, then HDV, XDCAM HD, DVCPRO HD, or uncompressed HD the next. Or use ProRes 422, Apple's new post-production format, for uncompressed HD quality at SD file sizes.

Incredible Real-Time Effects:
Add visual interest to any production with the rich set of effects and visualization tools built into Final Cut Pro 6. Experiment freely and iterate quickly. You'll see the results of your changes in real time as you work, with no need to waste time waiting for renders.

Comprehensive Editing Tools:
The faster the tools, the more time you have to be creative. Final Cut Pro 6 makes it easy to edit quickly, accurately, and flexibly. Everything you do in Final Cut Pro - from editing and trimming to audio mixing to finishing to delivery - feels like second nature, so your creativity can flourish
