happy 2b happy ,

getting better all the time

Great software for experienced editors. I use the studio version on the desktop and use this free version for doing simple work on the fly. Users will need to learn how to work with nodes, which are simply another form of layering and set up DELs and plan work output. The software links to digital info rather than saving large files, which matters for solid state laptops. This saves drive on long renders. Colour grading is excellent with scopes. Especially important as eyes adjust to screens and vision grading is always subjective. If you are experiencing issues during render, drop down to proxy renders; editing 101.

Mac Pro 7,1 crashes!!!

I download this from app store and opened the app and froze my whole computer while scanner VST's. I then got past that and even creating a folder with no video at all in a project this crashes. And this is on a Mac Pro 7,1 12 Core, W5700X, 48GB, 4TB SSD with 2TB PCIe AIC SSD. I'll stick to Final Cut X as it has been Optimized for my hardware. Maybe it's just the App store version but not sure, don't care to try.
