One editing tip that is good to know while working in Final Cut Pro is a short cut for blading a scene: "command" + "b". In addition, "command" + "z" is a great shortcut to undo actions. It is important to use FCPX libraries, Events, and Projects properly because you want to keep your work organized and separated from other people's work to avoid confusion and tampering. Audio levels on different clips can vary drastically as a result of distance from camera, volume of speech, and location. To correctly balance the audio, you can drag the audio bars below the film clips up or down. I believe the video quality is higher than the audio quality because of all of the jostling and background noise coming from outside the recording studio.
The biggest challenge we faced while working on this project was team member absences. I was gone for a few days, then I had to leave early while filming, and Makayla was gone on the last day of editing. This meant the other team members would be doing the parts for the absent team member, and that we would have more work to catch up on later. Although our team were responsible for different parts of this project, we all pitched in to help each other with each part. No one was a hinderance to the work effort. The most enjoyable part of this project, for me, was going down into Kapaa and deciding the best way to act out the scenes. I also like watching the finished product.
