Getting Started in FCP
When opening Final Cut Pro for the first time there are a wide array of modifications that can be made based on user settings. In the interest of simplicity, the “recommended settings” which appear as default on a new version of FCP, can be employed to achieve the desired results. Create a new project by selecting the “new” option under the “file” tab on the main FCP taskbar (located at the top of your screen)
At this point, save the new project immediately under a unique file name. Now, you may introduce media into the software platform.
