Apple Final Cut Pro X
Apple has built a completely new, faster, cleaner, and more intuitive digital video editing package with Final Cut Pro X 10. While some professionals are still kicking and screaming about the changes it brings,they’ll…
…eventually be won over by Final Cut Pro X‘s significant speed and usability advances. Besides, Apple and third party developers have already addressed a significant portion of their original objections. Meanwhile, prosumer video enthusiasts get a less daunting upgrade path to a pro-level Mac editor.
Apple Final Cut Pro X new features
Apple claims that Final Cut Pro features a revolutionary new video editing system centered around a Magnetic Timeline, which removes the problem of clip collisions and sync problems. This new Magnetic Timeline lets you edit on a flexible, trackless canvas while Content Auto-Analysis categorizes your content upon import by shot type, media and people. There’s also less waiting around for rendering because Final Cut Pro X now supports background rendering while you get on with editing.
- Rewritten from the bottom up
- Slicker, simpler Cocoa interface
- Designed for 64-bit Macs
- New Magnet Timeline
- Full screen mode in Lion
- Very fast
The main interface has been given a fresh new Cocoa base, making it slicker and generally easier to use although its increasingly looking similar to iMovie. For some professionals, this may be a bit annoying as it does make Final Cut look and feel a bit more amateurish than previous versions. Those that film using multicams will also be delighted that in version 10.0.3, Final Cut Pro X finally supports it again.
Apple Final Cut Pro X simplifies Apple’s famous video editor while making it a lot more powerful. However, dedicated fans may not be delighted with everything that’s been changed. Beginners may well love it but professionals will feel it’s been dumbed-down too far.
