For a beginner like me this tutorial is fantastic. I now understand a lot more and am able to DO a lot more with FCE. I'm also married to a mime and appreciate Jeanne's corporeal expression of sound waves.

I found this video tutorial one night when I was frantically trying to figure out why I wasn't successful at final cut express. She saved my buns.

I'm doing a multimedia project for a journalism class and my instructor expects us to use FCE without being taught. I did a ton of research before stumbling across this video and it has been SUCH a huge help. It may not be what advanced audio-editors are looking for, but it's perfect if you're clueless like me. Thanks so much for the great instruction!

Jeanne is a great teacher! These lessons may appear basic but that is because Final cut is a big piece of software. I think they are EXCELLENT tutorials. I particularly like Jeanne impersonating the wave forms. Thank you so much great tutorials!

Pretty basic stuff. I was hoping for more detail such as export/resample and import.
