There has been much debate over Apple’s latest iteration of Final Cut Pro. Many die-hard pros are very upset at some of the features Apple has seemingly “removed” from the app.
I think if I were them, I’d probably be a little upset as well.
I, on the other hand, am a video editing amateur in every sense. The only “editing” I really do is cutting down our pastor’s message video from Sundays, which basically involves chopping off some excess and then fading it in and out. Previously I used iMovie, but Final Cut Pro has been a really nice upgrade for me.
I love the added control I get over exports, and have really enjoyed using Compressor to get some more options instead of iMovie’s limited export control.
The audio enhancement in FCPX also seems to be top notch, easily removing background noise, hum, etc…
For someone like me with limited experience and knowledge, these are all things that I like the software to just “do” and not let me choose how to do it. The only thing I need now is a few more cores in my processor and I’ll be set! 😉
How about you?
Are you a pro who’s upset with this new version, or an amateur coming from iMovie who loves it?
