It's great but not perfect

This a great app for editing, there are still some issues with exports and optimisations on the M3 chip that cause exports to fail. Some value changes don't get accepted and have to be double typed which can become frustraing. The audio playback sometimes cuts out and it has to be restared to get it working again. Its has crashedonce where I lost an entire project only once but I will stand behind this app always. Being unable to simply configure audio channels and vidoe codecs with the accuracy aof Premier Pro forces me to do final exports out of there for TV content but for simple interent content this the app you want to use.

Been using Final Cut on and off since 2014, along with Resolve and Premiere Pro. Adobe by far and large have best plugin support. However I have stopped using premiere pro the past 3 years.
I always come back to Final Cut. The plugin support is not as good, not terrible but after all these years I wish Final Cut and Davinci Resolve were better supported by Plugin devs.
In the end I will use either DaVinci Resolve or Final Cut to edit my lifes timeline when it comes to full production wrap - maybe Final Cut coz its a bit of a simpler UI and I bet I'll be pretty tired of editing by then.

This is the only one

I run a IMac mini 2014.
In the last 3 months I have trialed / tried the the other products that cost less than half of FCPX and worked with the free version of DaVinci. I have worked on FCPX trial version for 33 days almost every day. I have no problem spending the money. Great product. Features / Animarion / Render option flexibility / Coloring - and best of all - no stutter/ glitching with mutiple effects, audio and graphics layered on clips when working. Smooth.
Only Issue is the Imac mini gets a bit warm.
