DVcreators.net has been known as the world leader in Final Cut training since the day Final Cut Pro 1.0 was released.
We were the training company Apple chose to help launch Final Cut Pro with training on disc, in workshops in over 60 cities and all major trade shows. We have taught alongside Randy Ubillos, the creator of Final Cut Pro (and talked him into adding some cool features to the application!). We’ve helped hundreds of thousands of FCP editors further their Final Cut Pro knowledge. Most of the people currently writing books and teaching Final Cut Pro are our former students!
Since the release of Final Cut Express, people have been asking for an Express-specific training course. Finally… here it is!
