Quote Will_m:

Just ask Final Cut X users how they like their new iMovie version.




A quick note here: Do you say that because you are an FCP user? Or is this just a generic viewpoint based on some internet griping where the first version was released? (we're now three versions on from that initial release).

Because, while it still has a few (major) shortcomings, FCPX is so so so much better in many ways than the crusty old, outdated FCP was. And it's just at the beginning of it's lifecycle - a few versions down the road and it's again going to be the app others are taking a *lot* of design cues from.

Range based keywording, smart keyword collections, automatic camera syncing, amazing multicam editing - there is so much good stuff in there where the ageing, Cocoa 32-bit legacy FCP was dreadful.

The majority of grumbling was A) omg they've killed the app I was heavily invested in, B) the new thing looks a bit like iMovie and doesn't yet do everything the old version did (so don't upgrade yet) and C) omg they've changed the editing workflow a bit and I don't like change, change is bad.

I loved the good things about FCP, but the awful things were incredibly frustrating. And FCPX is a rethink that fixes all of the awful things (but still hasn't yet got *everything* in there.)

I now return you to your regular program...
