Holy Heck, THIS works!

Finally, a way to learn FCP X that's as smart as the program itself!

Steve and Mark's Ripple Training has long been considered the "class of the pack" in FCP X training. And so it's awesome that they've just released a training tool that you can install DIRECTLY into your FCP X interface in the form of this Workflow Extention.

Workflow Extentions came in FCP X 10.4.5 - and let you access hugely useful operational knowledge, instantly, WHILE you are editing.

Editing Faster in FCP X — does EXACTLY what it promises. These lessons will help ANY editor, new or very experiened, master the type of keyboard shorcuts and magnetic editing operations that will help you fly through your projects.

I've been editing in X since day one and consider myself a very advanced FCP X editor, and even I picked up (or was reminded of) efficiency techniques that I had either forgotten or just hadn't needed lately.

For someone coming to X for the first time, THIS wil be a "must have" way to demystify and accellerate your enjoyment of FCP X editing.

I can't recommend this enough!

Great job, Ripple Training!
