I use Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere and Avid. This year I made the leap to FCPX.
I’m so tired of the bickering about which platform is better. No one has a perfect child. When jumping onto FCPX for the first time around the track, here’s what I discovered.
Not just in performance but pulling b-roll and sound bites. Using the scroll function, I was able to quickly mark the in/out and drop it into my sequence with lightning speed.
I love the import function because it allows me to preview media before bringing it into the project. Fantastic time saver!
No more worrying about upper/lower fields, frame size, fps…Everything has been simplified and I love that.
Once in a while you have to a little “clean house”. I love that I’m able to delete preferences with one click of the mouse.
What an incredible upgrade on the effects pallet! Not only do I get new effects, but I can easily preview them before adding it to my timeline.
No more worrying about the last time I saved when the system goes down. It constantly saves my work for me.
Do I LOVE FCPX over other platforms? NO.
Do I LOVE FCPX features over other platforms? YES.
If you’re about to dabble in FCPX, I highly recommend it. Don’t stick to one type of editing software – learn them all!
