Great product, if you want to learn it...

So… If you take the time to learn a new way of editing, it’s worth it. After a week or so of having the tiny pieces of your skull lodged into the wall, the edit becomes smooth and efficient. There are number of things and process’s you have re-learn. The magnet timeline can cause you headaches, along with fades and what seems like basic tooling options, but once you learn the short cuts, and actually read the manual, you’ll find that this product actually makes it easier.

I do wish they would stop changing the interface look… Just stick to one. I have to keep finding keys… Still, aggrovating as theat may be… here i am. Giving a positive review. Love how it renders in the BG.

Stick at it. It’s worth it.

Final Cut Pro !!!

I have found that "Clean my Mac" running in the background will slow down rendering in FCX’’ So turn it of and dont have it set to auto start when you turn your computer on.
Well i find the new Final Cut X good to use and easy, i also have The old version of Final Cut Pro and this one gets the job done Quicker, would like to see more control over the sounds provided, Ring Shifter Ex like they had in Soundtrack Pro..that was awesome,would also like to see a good color station to work on my projects or more control over color in my projects. I find this version clean to work with and renders far quicker and the templates are also good and Natually would like to see more of these added and i think sales would be greatly enhanced for this product.

I am one happy customer!

I have been a part-time user of Final Cut Pro for many years, and after hearing so many poor reviews of the early releases of Final Cut Pro X, I chose not to upgrade from Final Cut Pro Studio 3.

After buying a new computer and upgrading to OSX High Sierra, I was forced into upgrading FCP, and was expecting the worst. However, I've been using FCP X 10.4 for a few weeks now, and have been absolutely blown away by how good it is. The new interface is clean, intuitive and incredibly feature-rich, and I've found the functionality so much easier that the older versions. And there are just so many third-party add-ons available.

What do I press to give FCP X six stars?
