If you want to learn more about video editing on various platforms, here are some places to do it:

  • – Lynda costs money but they do an excellent job. Plus, if you set the time aside, you can get a monthly plan and pack in a lot of training for the cost of one month (which is around $US30, depending on what plan you choose).
  • DVCreators – DVCreators has a lot of training they sell, but they also have a very good forum that you can use for free to ask questions and learn new things.
  • DMN Final Cut Pro Channel
  • Los Angeles Final Cut Pro User Group
  • Creative Cow
  • Video Copilot – For learning After Effects, if you want to dive into motion graphics and effects a bit more.

If you have any other great resources for learning video editing, please share them in the comments.

We’ll be posting the full guide early next week, but now we’re done with this week’s video editing lessons. Thanks for learning with us!
