Looking for worthy Final Cut Pro X Tutorial YouTube videos can be like searching for a needle in a haystack. There are thousands of videos online that claim to offer tips and tricks for Final Cut – but very few of them provide the level of instruction you need.
Even if you do find good video editing instructors on YouTube, there’s a probability that they don’t provide training on the specific software feature that you’re looking for. Taking all that time to find what you need can be so frustrating!
But don’t give up hope just yet. With a little bit of guidance, you can quickly narrow your options and find a professional video editing instructor who offers a wealth of free tutorials, tips and resources for both beginners and experts.
Follow the tips below before you end up wasting hours skimming through dozens of videos from no-name teachers who don’t understand Final Cut Pro any better than you do.
Check the instructor’s experience
Before you bother pressing the play button, check who has posted the Final Cut Pro X Tutorial YouTube video. Look at the profile and check for any background information or links to the instructor’s website.
Is it an industry veteran who has proven experience in video editing tutorials? Someone who is an expert on Final Cut and has a track record of teaching other editors like yourself? No? Then skip those videos and keep looking.
Define what you want to learn
Are you looking for a broad beginner’s tutorial on Final Cut Pro, or do you only need to master a few program features? By narrowing your search for a specific type of Final Cut Pro X Tutorial YouTube video, such as filtering audio clips, or creating effects, you’ll be able to find what you need much quicker.
Quickly check how many total videos the instructor has posted
Want a quick, easy way to tell if the instructor really knows Final Cut? Click on their profile name to see how many videos they’ve posted. Having hundreds of videos from a single teacher is often a good sign that the instructor is knowledgeable on all aspects of the software and is also dedicated to helping video editors by providing a wide variety of tutorials.
Search within the instructor’s uploaded videos
Once you find an experienced video editor who has posted many Final Cut Pro X Tutorial YouTube videos, you can save time by searching directly within his profile, as opposed to all of YouTube.
For example, on the official YouTube page of Larry Jordan – an acclaimed video editor who is recognized as one of the top Final Cut Pro instructors in the world – you can search through more than 360 videos, all uploaded by Larry. On his profile page, simply enter your specific search term. i.e., “workflow, effects, titles,” etc.
