With the release of Final Cut Pro X, everything changed and many editors accustomed to the traditional interface are having a hard time adjusting. In order to help you see some of the differences between version 7 and X, we've created this screencast to show you where some functions have moved to, what's new and what's been discarded. It's obviously not a complete list but it should hopefully give you an idea of what to expect if you decide to make the jump to Apple's current vision of video editing on the Mac.
With all of the (mostly) negative press that Final Cut Pro X has received since its introduction last month, one particularly vital group has been all but drowned out -- third-party developers such as CrumplePop, who are throwing their support firmly behind Apple’s next-generation editing software.
Apple’s new Final Cut Pro X is certainly testing the patience and loyalty of one small but extremely vocal group of fans: professional video editors, who are up in arms over this completely reimagined post-production application. But will other users also break out torches and pitchforks to storm One Infinite Loop?
Apple unleashed a firestorm of controversy following the release of Final Cut Pro X, with professional video editors up in arms over missing features and the inability to open legacy project files. As it turns out, some of the so-called “missing features” are simply tucked away in the new FCPX user interface, which has created confusion for legacy users. Here are some ways to make the revamped app function a little more like Final Cut Pro 7.
On this week's Mac|Life show, Robbie and Flo discuss Apple's response to the negativity surrounding Final Cut Pro X's release. Also, Google's got a new social networking thing. Maybe you've heard of it?
Although Apple is now attempting to silence the week-old mutiny over its new Final Cut Pro X app, the release has spooked many video professionals in the industry and reopened a few old wounds -- including those of a former Shake product designer who claims the company doesn’t consider pros as its “primary business.”
Apple may be slow to respond to controversy, but when they do, it usually does a good job of quelling the storm. After a solid week of uproar over the new Final Cut Pro X from video professionals, Cupertino has finally come forward with a new question and answer page on their website they hope to address user concerns.
Final Cut Pro X launched last week with a meh, with users wondering why all older versions were discontinued, a lambasting on a Conan O'Brien skit, and too many customers leaving 1-star ratings and long, negative reviews on the Mac App Store. Apple, realizing that this latest version of their widely used film editing software might not be making the cut, began issuing refunds in the face of their own "all sales are final" app store policy (Taiwan notwithstanding).
This week, Robbie and Flo discuss the recent slow down in production of iPhone 4s, and debate whether or not the next iPhone model will be dubbed the "5" or the "4S". Also, a quick spiel about the new Final Cut Pro X.
Well, it was bound to happen eventually, but it’s surprising to see an app like Final Cut Pro X aimed at professional users get lampooned. But that’s exactly what talk show host Conan O’Brien did on his TBS show Thursday night, less than three days after the software was released to the Mac App Store.
