What is raw footage in Final Cut Pro?
Raw footage in Final Cut Pro refers to the unedited, original video clips that have been captured by a camera or other recording device. This footage is imported into the Final Cut Pro software, where it can then be edited, enhanced, and arranged to create a final video product.
Raw footage is often lengthy and contains unnecessary or unwanted content, such as multiple takes of a scene, irrelevant background activity, or technical errors. In Final Cut Pro, editors can trim these clips down to the most essential and effective shots, add effects or transitions, adjust the color and sound, and more. The raw footage serves as the basic building blocks for the final video project.
