Lesson 4. Gathering and Editing Film
In the previous chapter, you learned the principles of gathering and editing video, which shaped an important foundation for working with film.
If your project was shot on 35mm or 16mm film, and you plan to finish on film, you need to design a workflow that allows you to generate an accurate cut list so that you can conform your original film. This type of project, which originates and finishes on film, requires an offline workflow in Final Cut Pro that incorporates Cinema Tools.
There are many variations of professional film workflows; for the purposes of these exercises, you'll observe an example of a typical film workflow. Your film project specifications may vary, but the principles of film workflow will still apply. In this lesson, you will learn how to plan and organize a film project, gather media, and leverage Cinema Tools to track your original film and audio sources.
