    So I know that OTAP is primarily photography, although I was just wondering if anyone here does videography. I'm trying to learn Final Cut and so far I'm liking it a lot. Anyone here work with Final Cut? If so, are there any places to go and get video samples? Right now, I'm working with some text stuff, but that's it. I don't have a video camera to really record anything, but it would be nice to have something to use and play around with. Thanks a lot.

    I might be learning some AE as well, so I'll keep you in mind. I'll look around for some tutorials

    I use final cut/edius 3 primarily for weddings. I mostly edit and my boss shoots. You can download hd movie trailers to mess around with perhaps :shrug: Cut them into the individual shots then mess around editing

    AE, use tutorials. Lol I started learning stroke with keyframing and once you get the jist of keyframes it all becomes much easier. If you use flash (you are web development so maybe) you will have a basic understanding of keyframes already which will help.

    .

    once you learn key framing both Premiere and AE become a breeze

    Thats how I'm doing fairly well with it right now. I've got key framing down (although I hate working with flash haha). Although it does get a little different because the key framing is a bit different depending on how you do it. If you zoom in on an item in the canvas or something, you use a different way of key framing than if you have text and want to do tweening.
