3. I started out with FC Express, but not for long
I upgraded to FCP 4, then we found a FCP 5 on from Craigslist and bought it.

The screen to the left is Viewer window; the right is the canvas window. They are usually black screens until you add your objects, i.e. video or photoshop files.

Here's a tip for you: the button I mentioned upthread there is a feature that will help if you intend to add text. It is called Screen Safe Mode, which will have a double blue (box) lines. We inside blue box is the Safe Mode, which will insure your text won't be cut off of the frame.

I highly recommend Diane's book. I have the one for FCP4 and it is really good. They have DVD clips that you use to get yourself familiar with the program. Of course not having seen the Express version I can only assume it will be as good, but I would certainly think it is of the same caliber as the other books.

I was very intimidated until I got my book. It helped a lot!

Good Luck with your project :hi: Happy editing.
