Excellent in Most all Respects

I bought FCP a good while back and it just keeps on getting better and better. I edit all my projects in it now as it flys on my 27 Inch iMac from 2013. I added a couple of extra GB of ram and a thunderbolt external drive, and this helps no end in keeping my systems clean and sane.

While you can pick up the basics of FCPX without assistance, it is much better to do a Lynda course or something like that, as you will get to see so many short cuts and simpler ways of doing things going this route. There is so much to this program, that you will probably never find it all yourself, without spending crazy amounts of time learning the hard way.

The program is stable, powerful, relatively intuitive (in as much as it can be) and does a great job, with lots of output formats available.

I have Adobe Premiere also and that too is an excellent program, but I find myself back in FCPX on every project as it is simpler and easier to understand for my needs.

There is not much you can’t achieve with FCPX, from short commercials through full blown 2 hour epics, but you do need to study, at least a little at the beginning to get up to speed.

Well done Apple and all the development team. Keep it up and PLEASE don’t ditch FCPX like you did Aperture.

Simply the best

As a long time professional video maker, advertiser, and content provier I can say with no doubt that Final Cut is the best software by a long way for my needs. I make around 300 social media video promos per year and they are all done on a ten year old macbook pro running an older version of FCPX but there is never a glitch, never and error, and never a lost file. I don't even have to use proxy files.

I can not wait to update my hardware to the latest M1 macbook and continue the journey in partnership with Final Cut.

Sheer Genius in need of more attention

I love FCPX. Have done since 10.2.1. I cut drama TV, feature films, music videos and short films with FCPX and I will not as far as I possibly can use any other NLE. However having said that Apple need to pay more attention to the needs of us 'Pro Users' when it comes to upgrades. we don't need gimmicks we need real world adjustments. One area that needs particular sttention is the ability to collaberate with teams. But I really do love the magnetic timeline, it's a real timesaver and just such fun to use.
