If you are beginning with Final Cut Pro X, or any editor for that matter, I highly recommend checking out keyboard covers for shortcuts. I have both physical keyboards and the covers that go over my own keyboards for 5 different programs, including FCP X, Premiere, After Effects, Illustrator, and Motion 5.

Not that I am just starting out with any of the software I use daily; but, because I do use different software that all has different shortcuts, using these covers makes things a lot easier for me to remember "what key is where, and what key does what."

For covers, these inexpensive ($13) covers work great:

For Physical keyboards, I recommend anything from Editors Keys, they have a keyboard for just about any creative application you can think of, they are a tab more pricey, worth every penny though:

I have a longer post about the Editors Keys keyboard here:

Spokes on a wheel

"I would suggest that if you like editing with a track-based NLE, you should take a good look at Resolve 14. There's a good chance it does much of what you can't easily do at the moment and will improve faster than Avid or Adobe will be able to catch up."

Seems like Resolve isn't trying to stop the wheel, seems like they're trying to break the wheel; Daenerys Targaryen style!

Why we should share

"One of the biggest accomplishments in this great journey was having my store added to Apple’s Final Cut Pro Resource Page. When this had happened it brought me tears of happiness and joy. To have a highly valued company such as Apple add my little online store to a long list of amazingly talented people and businesses is incredibly gratifying. "

My personal belief is that all art should be free, I don't mean you should work for free, I mean you should NEVER put a price on your passion. Anything creative I do, either I give it away, or I tell the person to give me whatever they want. I never put a price on anything.

Currently I am doing my first music video for a local artist, who also happens to be signed to a decently sized record label. My price for doing this video? NOT A SINGLE PENNY. All I asked for was a shoutout on the video page! I have actually spent $700 of my own money on additional equipment to shoot this video. Whatever your passion is, money shouldn't matter in achieving those goals! Spending money on equipment is my way of saying that I believe in myself and my talents, even if others don't.

I might not be the next Spike Jonze; but, I'll never find out if I don't try!

"The white Lexus RX450h SUV emerged from an Apple facility this week and was kitted out with an array of sensors, according to a person who saw the vehicle and provided photos to Bloomberg News. The sensors included Velodyne Lidar Inc.'s top-of-the-range 64-channel lidar, at least two radar and a series of cameras. The sensors appear to be products bought off the shelf from suppliers, rather than custom-made, according to an industry expert who saw the photos."

LOL, products bought off a shelf? Aren't all hardware products bought off a shelf from suppliers?
