FCPX editing software lets you manage less and focus more on emotion and story. The magnetic timeline allows for trackless editing and the new update 10.3 introduces audio lanes for split audio tracks (to output to your audio mixer). Cognitive selecting through events and keyword assignment as well as visual scrubbing are great ways to emotionally engage with your footage and stay in editing flow.

THIS GUY EDITS (TGE) is a youtube channel by film editor Sven Pape, an A.C.E. award nominee, whose credits include work for directors James Cameron, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and James Franco.
You get to see my timeline and as I cut scenes. I show work in progress. TGE is not about how to run a piece of software, but rather how to tell stories creatively.
