Creating a Tapeless Video Workflow in FCP from Class on Demand webinar is designed for folks that are new to working with tapeless media. As an example for this webinar, we will be working with AVCHD media.

Tapeless media requires entirely different organization and ingest techniques than traditional tape-based media. In this Final Cut tutorial, Larry Jordan walks you through the entire process from initially setting up and naming folders, to bringing the media into Final Cut ("ingest"), to configuring scratch disks and other preference settings, to editing, rendering, and exporting for the web.

If you are moving into tapeless media and want to do it right, you need to experience this tutorial.

Audience Level:
This Final Cut tutorial will be most helpful to editors that have installed Final Cut Studio 2 or later. You do not need access to tapeless media to watch this tutorial. While this illustrates using AVCHD media, this training applies to all tapeless media formats.
