As a YouTube video maker, you might have already gotton to know a lot of video editing software, and iMovie must be one of them. Although iMovie is a very practical and easy to use video edditing app by Apple, the truth is that the features which are presented to you might be a bit limited. With this in mind, Apple has made sure to deliver high-end and professional video editing software called Final Cut Pro. However, using it isn't that hard, but it's definitely not a walk in the park, so we've taken the liberty to provide you with a comprehensive yet concise guide on how to do it.
How ti Edit YouTube Videos in Final Cut Pro
In this section, we are going to take a quick look at the steps that you need to take in order to properly edit YouTube videos in Final Cut Pro. Without any further ado, let's take a look.
Step 1: Importing the video clip into FCP
This is, of course, the first thing that you need to do. Regardless of whether the original footage was taken by your smart phone, taken from the Internet or you've left it over from some past event that's long overdue, you can easily import it into the FCP in order to edit it. FCP supports a variety of different formats, so it's a good idea to try and import the video even if you are not quite sure about its extension. In order to do so, open the program, go to the File button, click on Import and select the file or the folder. This is going to get you to a regular finder window which would enable you to pick the clip that you want to do. If it's not highlighted or you aren't able to select it, the software doesn't support it, and it's not compatible.
Keep in mind that if you want to import videos which have been published already, you can download them directly from the channel as MP4 files. If you want to store videos from different channels, you can use the Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate in order to get them converted and stored on your computer in a format that is supported by FCP.
Step 2: Edit YouTube Videos in Final Cut Pro
That's the fun part. There are a few things that you can do with Final Cut Pro, and they are all quite professional.
Step 3: Upload to YouTube from the software directly
This one is rather easy. Here is the sequence that you need to do. Go to File -> Share -> Master File -> Setting -> File -> Share -> YouTube. That's basically it. Then you need to sign in to your YouTube account and simply click on Next -> Publish and the entire thing is done. That's all you need to do in order to quickly and conveniently upload your video to YouTube directly from the FCP.
