I finally had the chance to sit down and play with some of my GoPro Hero HD footage, it was also the first time I took Final Cut Pro X for a spin. While many people have complained about the downsides of the new Final Cut, and the bizarre iMovie like interface that throws all your years of NLE (non-linear editing) out the window for a new “magnetic timeline”. I found that FCPX did a fantastic job of editing the 1080p source footage. In fact I edited and exported this video in the time it would have taken Final Cut Pro 7 to render it for playback!
There’s no fancy editing techniques in this video, I simply chopped out the boring stuff and used a built-in transition in between each of the clips. Feel free to crank it up to 1080p and fullscreen it for full effect.
