    I have FCE HD but I’m guessing that most features are the same. I’m really interested in getting some effects into FC. I’ve been working a while now with the features that come out of the box. I’d like to find some pre-built effects for intros. Like what you see on TV when they overlay the bottom of the screen with text an graphics introducing people.

    Kevin: Great tutorial. How long can the clips be for this process? I just shot a conference at work that lasted about an hour, no breaks. I used three cameras (Canon HG10 & HG20, and a Flip)
    Will I need to divide the footage into smaller frame groups in order to combine them or can I combine them as is? I’m using FCP. Thanks for any help you can provide.

    I found it easier to select clip 1, mark in (hit I)at a suitable sound or frame; select clip 2, mark in (I) at the same frame or sound. Then select both marked clips with cmd, right clip, create multiclip at in points. Then you can edit real time with numbers 1 and 2 in your number pad in your keyboard. The rest is the same.
    You can also insert text and graphics with FCP using composite mode.
