I've been using Final Cut Pro professionally for the last five years. It is consistantly buggy, it regularly crashes, and it's incredibly slow (even on the newest MacBook Pros). If I had to do it over again, I'd go with Premier. This dev team needs to get it together.
I love it because I can own my licence. As a new graduate from film school Im just starting out and have responsibilities, so for me to have a program where i can do what i love and not have to worry about making monthly payments lets me learn at my pace and not break my pockets as i grow.
Crashed on opening.
If you havent updated....Don't. It renders v..e..r..y slowly and flat locked up with me. Never did that before the update. Somethings wrong. BTW, it's still rendering as I write this.
Best thing to happen to video editing. From cutting to color this is the future of film making, I live and breathe on this program and have rarely had any problems at all.
I give it three stars for ease of use. FCPX is not aging well, it is falling far behind compettors!
This is a great NLE in general but the latest version doesn't work on many computers. It's causing computers to lock up when they go to render their projects. Wait for the next version and maybe Apple will have it fixed by then
hola que tal voy Adecir algo que no les gustara pero este programa es una basura pege por el mas de $ 300 y me friza la cunputadora Cada 10 minutos de estar metido en el programa Asi que solucionan el problema o me de vuelven mi dinero
Apple seems to be issuing more frequent updates like Davinci Resolve studio.... I have the paid version for both. Three things they need to fix is the built in luts & the option for drop down Panasonic V-log, Canon C-log & Sony S-log to rec 709 rec 2020 & other options. Eliminate the requirement of dragging custom lut then the desired lut. Add H265 master file as a export option in the dropdown options without the user needing to manually add it.
Please fix this apple....
