With support for multiple video layers, real-time special effects and transitions, and powerful tools like color correction and matting, Final Cut Express HD lets you achieve truly professional-looking results. And because they are all Universal applications, Final Cut Express HD, LiveType, and Soundtrack let you take advantage of the new generation of Intel-based Mac computers and all the performance benefits they offer.
Insert, overwrite, replace or fit to fill clips into your sequence by dragging them directly into the Canvas or Timeline. Use precision tools and techniques like slip, slide, ripple, roll, split and extend. The flexible interface lets you move seamlessly between editing, compositing and effects functions.
Achieve impressive results, easily creating rich visual images and animations, by layering video clips, photos, or graphics files - such as multilayered Adobe Photoshop files. You can, for example, use multiple video layers to produce side-by-side video, picture-in-picture effects, or multi-layered collages.
Realtime Effects & Transitions
With Final Cut Express HD, you can enhance your video projects using any of the hundreds of available transitions, filters and effects. In most cases, you wont even have to wait to see what they will look like. Thanks to Dynamic RT, Final Cut Express HD lets you preview effects and transitions in real time without rendering. That alone will save you loads of precious time.
Audio and Voiceover
Final Cut Express HD lets you mix up to 99 audio tracks using pans, levels and the three-band equalizer. Further enhance your audio with transitions and filters such as cross fades, reverb, EQ, echo, noise gate and more. For documentary-style projects, use the VoiceOver tool to record narration into an audio track while your video plays.
