    Not sure how many of you use Final Cut Pro, but the new FCPX was probably the worst disaster Apple has ever made in the past 10 years. Studios are going to have to COMPLETELY abandon their Final Cut Pro software simply because FCPX lost so many important aspects, such as importing tape footage, handling virtually all 3rd party plug-ins (WTF?!?), DOES NOT OPEN PROJECTS IN PREVIOUS FCP VERSIONS (DOUBLE WTF), and the list goes on. It's essentially iMovie on steroids with a false coding of being a professional editing system.

    This is as if Apple released a new iPhone that has a 8 megapixel camera lens on it and a 12 hour battery life, but suddenly can't send picture texts, emails, or call numbers outside the US. Since when does "upgrade" entail swapping out important and essential features and functions?

    LOL. You just figured this out? When Apple announced FCPX a while back, it seemed like they were marketing this new version towards the hobby video editor. Lowering the price point was a dead give away also.

    Get over it. You should know by now that Steve knows what's best for you. icon_lol.gif

    "just" figured this out. Yes you fucking pedant. I didn't attend NAB in March nor did I know what the changes were until people actually BOUGHT and reviewed it. And I saw clips of the interphase that looked similar to iMovie, but had no idea it was ACTUALLY iMovie with a fake FCP shell over it.

    Get a refund. Learn Avid. It's good to know both Avid and FCP if you wanna work in the biz. Or so I'm told.

    Avid is a multi-thousand dollar program. I didn't buy FCPX. I'm smart enough NEVER to buy an Apple product that's an "upgrade" until the bugs are fixed. But I hope Avid takes advantage of Apple fucking up by making a less expensive program. And then there's always Adobe Premier. Meh....but still maybe it'll get better. FCP sure didn't. icon_eek.gif

    I wonder if Apple is going to throw a hissy fit about the joke like when Ellen did about the iPhone?
