Ratings and Reviews
Surprisingly many bugs! Lacks manuel finesse...
Having given FCP a miss since the "iMovie Pro" update (and a horrible V1), I finally decided to give it a go, thinking years of updates will have ironed out the early problems. I am astounded at how many bugs it has! (I talk actual BUGS, not silly features like the illogical "Compound Clips" og silly naming conventions like "Projects" for sequences). I genuinely went in with an open mind, but alas, FCPX might be for some, and technically its brilliant (ignoring the bugs), but the "clever" (in big inverted commas) interface is not for me. Great for throwing things together (like iMovie), but I miss the manual control, fine tuning and finesse, I expect of a "professional" program.
Come a long way
I used the previous incarnation (FCP 7) and competitor products PP, Avid etc… and when FCPX initially came out, it was a disaster. Today, it works beautifully to the point I am editing natively in RAW (Cinema DNG). As a working professional, I appreciate a tool which is super-fast, easy to use (although there is a learning curve) and allows me to produce work for my customers which is beautifully made.
I use additional tools for more advanced support such as cleaning up sound which is pretty standard and have other tools to assist visuals such as Motion etc… However, if it is good enough for the BBC’s news desk, it is good enough for me and allows me to me extremely productive and put in place my crazy ideas for my customers.
As professional tools go, I really enjoy using it although like any NLE there is the occasional blip. However, I bought it because I prefer it over the other NLEs, would buy it again given the choice and love the sheer speed advantage once I was up and running. A really good tool and highly recommended.
Excellent & Definitely Not Crash Prone
Thought I should write a review, firstly because we use FCPX for all projects now at our studio having used FCP 4/5/6/7 Premiere, Avid and even Media 100 a long time ago. Having used it from the very first release the experience was a big jump, at our company we continued with FCP 7 and kept trying it out alongside Premiere, firstly on personal projects, then on very small commercial projects, and finally from about version 10.1 everything.
It’s extemely fast, and takes some learning to really exploit just how fast it is. We regularly now get compliments from clients on just how quickly we can turn around projects and deliver changes. The magnetic timeline takes some getting used to, but comes into its own when making changes to an existing cut. Export times are extremely fast.
you never have to save, you never lose work.
Some of the reviews have mentioned that it is Slow or crashes all the time. This is NOT usual behaviour, and these users should really spend some more time troubleshooting what is up most likely with their machine. It’s about as stable as it gets for an NLE (unlike Premiere… Crash beast!) And we have it on all sorts of different macs.
Try it, be patient initially. You might find you love it, and that it makes you more moeny.
