Cinema Tools is an application for people who edit film projects. If you aren’t using film,
you probably don’t need to use Cinema Tools. The only exception is when you are
working with video footage recorded at 24 fps. If you plan to edit or output to film with
Final Cut Pro, you should read the Cinema Tools User Manual for a complete description
of the film editing process. The rest of this chapter focuses on the film editing features
in Final Cut Pro and how they work with Cinema Tools.
