Michael was there right at the start of Final Cut development at Macromedia before Apple bought the program, so he's got a pretty good background in NLE design and how things work. Some excellent advice from him in these three videos from the recent LAFCPUG meeting.
It is not a scientific comparison by any stretch of the imagination, but what happens when FCP7 and FCPX go head to head in an editing speed test? A slow news day in the FCP world? Maybe but at least it's not another blog post with the same old FCPX rehash.
We deliberated long and hard about posting this video and in the end after watching it with fellow Final Cut Pro editors and laughing at it again, we decided to publish. Another take on FCPX this time staring Leonardo DiCaprio.
We predicted that as soon as Final Cut Pro X was released there would be a huge amount of free online tutorials available. Izzy Hyman has not only posted this free 26 part tutorial, but he's also made media available for download too.
Sandwiched on Petitiononline.com in between 'Ban animal gas chambers' and 'Petition to tackle the rise of Islamophobia' is 'Final Cut Pro X is not a professional application.' Do we really need to sign this to get the message to Apple?
