Aside other numerous problems, I see that sharing to youtube is now removed. No apple, you do not call regular render to a file "share to facebook and youtube" because IT IS NOT. It is just a regular render to file with certain metrics - that's it! There's no need to lie and do a separate 'share destination' with the name that suggests it is something it is not. Thanks god my main machines are still on previous macOS and previous Final Cut. And thanks to creators of DaVinci Resolve for having free version - by the time apple gets completely soft in the head I'll just move entirely. Buy-buy!
these guys completley ruined final cut. because i edit in 4k i now have to upload my videos to my desktop in a master file. one 5 minutes video takes up 13 gigs . and it takes up way too much of mu disl space and memory. bring back the godamn 10.5.0
Coming from Premiere, there are some pains to be expected - my assumption is that many negative reviews come from not getting familiar with FCP. One of the excellent things about Apple software is that it includes a great "Help" menu that lets you quickly look up any functionality. Any time I need to do something specific, but don't know how to in FCP, I can find it in the Help menu. Aside from the excellent documentation, FCP also has intuitive and easy controls, which speed up my workflow quite a bit. I also find FCP to be easier on the eyes than Premiere, which is nice if you're looking at it for hours. It's also reasonably priced, so I give it 5 stars!
While the popular thing for professional editors to do is to bash FCP, I don't find anything that I do (as a pro editor) that FCP doesn't do well. It's a solid program and the magnetic timeline was a godsend when they introduced it and I wouldn't want to edit without it. As with all apps, just don't upgrade the moment they send out a new release. Wait until the minor updates show up. The one knock I will say about Apple and FCP is that bugs notoriously make it through to the first release of new versions, but they do fix them quickly. But honestly, that is the rule to follow for all software. I love FCP and will use it until they stop making it.
Very frustrated with this release. Click on send crash dumps, but no idea if any is listening. And performance has taken a hit as well. I have been using FCP for 10 years off and on, and I have never been moe frustrated. Overall App is 5-star when its stable.
I hate the fact that sharing to streaming services like YouTube and Vimeo has been removed. That was such an amazing time saver. I'm assuming there's some rights issues, but if at all possible please please please bring it back!!!
I love Final Cut Pro, it's one time payment is a big make-or-break thing. It has a very nice polished feel, and can help you edit amazing footage. Despite the negativity, it is amazing and has very many cool features. 100/100
I've been using this for years, I learned it from the ground up on my own, and it still is an essential tool for creative works and projects. It hasn't changed much, but I think that's because a lot of the extra features don't always make the 'cut' on a final draft. I had to manually delete the receipt for this software in order to re-purchase it. As a result, this is the only software I can leave a review for now.
Having $599 apps with $4000 mac. Waste of money. Over heating mac. Over price mac. no need to buy this junk for do only work.
What a waste of money! I can't even select video clips/move them in ANY way without getting a "spinning beach ball." I have a 2019 MacBook Pro with 16GB of RAM.. I cleared out my hard drive, made plenty of space, and I can't do even the simplest tasks with this worthless crap software. It literally freezes up and does nothing for 20-30 seconds. I have lost HOURS of productivity dealing with this. I've been a longtime Apple user and this is such a disappointment. You'd think their own osftware would work well with their own hardware. What garbage.
