      Hi, I’m new to DV in general. I’ve aquired a G4 that has Finalcut Pro 4 on it.

      Is there a good book anyone can recommend to get started? I know that version 5 is out cause I just went to the apple site. Should I junk 4 or learn that first? Can anyone recommend online resources that I should check out?

      Thanks in advance.

      Hey Dadio,

      Check Apple’s upgrade website – – it looks like (if you have the install CD’s/DVD’s for FCP 4, then you’ll be able to upgrade to the new FCP Studio Universal version in March for just $199. Great deal if you ask me!

      In the time between now and getting the new FCP Studio Universal s/w upgrade, I would learn FCP 4 from the built-in tutorials. Also, there are plenty of training resources for FCP….,GGLD:2004-47,GGLD:en&q=Final+Cut+Pro+Training
