with Final Cut Pro X 

Final Cut Pro X is the latest evolution of Apple’s high end, professional video editing software. Chris Anderson will provide a look into how the professionals use Final Cut Pro to create, well, professional videos.

You bring in your questions; troubleshooting your
apps and hardware; how did I do that?
