3. Multi-Channel Video

In fact, there is almost no limit to the number of videos that you can show on the screen at the same time. You can stack them on top of each other or create cool picture-in-picture effects within your video.

4. Professional Light and Color Correction

Real life doesn't always offer the best conditions for shooting video. The makers of Final Cut Pro understand this and give you the ability to easily adjust and correct problems with color and lighting. You can use these features to give your video a more natural appearance, or you can use them to give your video an entirely new look.

5. Easy Pro Level Transitions

If you need more than simple dissolves, fades or exploding hearts or` stars in your sequence transitions, Final Cut Pro offers a wide variety of commercial level transitions. In fact, Final Cut Pro offers more types of transitions between sequences than any other video editing program available.

Once you have completed editing a video with Final Cut Pro, you can easily export the video project to Apple's DVD Studio Pro and create DVDs that rival even the best commercial releases.
