In an effort to help video editors hone their skills and tell compelling stories, Shutterstock and PremiumBeat created a series of free Editor Kits for Final Cut Pro X featuring fun and detailed tutorials that include free stock videos and music available for commercial use.

Check out all 5 Editor Kits on PremiumBeat’s Final Cut Pro X page, which launched with the start of the NAB Show in Las Vegas. Each Editor Kit features a robust tutorial, plus free Shutterstock video clips and music tracks so you can start experimenting with the FCP X features right away. The package also includes a Final Cut Pro XML file for simple, one-click launch of a Final Cut Pro library complete with all assets.

With amazing, time-saving features like Optical Flow, 3D Text Effects, and a suite of advanced color-correction tools — all of which are explained in this series — Final Cut Pro is a go-to solution for production companies and feature filmmakers: Both Tina Fey’s recent Whiskey Tango Foxtrot and 2015’s Focus, starring Will Smith, were edited entirely in Final Cut Pro.

All 5 Editor Kits show you how to create something amazing using Final Cut’s built-in tools and effects — with Shutterstock assets as inspiration. You can access all of the downloadable kits and watch the associated tutorial videos on PremiumBeat’s Final Cut Pro X page. The kits cover a wide range of topics, including:
