Update Nightmare

2
There is a new issue with every update and when you call the support team they do not fix the issue, they only show you ways to go around it. 1) For over a year, I've been unable to upload directly to Youtube from Final Cut Pro. I've been on the phone for hours with Apple reps and the only solution to export to my desk top then upload to the youtube. 2) Uploading videos from iphone 11 is hit or miss depending on the update. So much time and creativity is lost when everytime you try to upload a video there is no image will not display in FCPX . I am beyond annoyed with this over priced editing nightmare. Just stick with IMovie at least it's free.

Crashes my MBP completely

2
I want to love this program, even though it's not intuitive to use. And it's not as easy to use as a truly linear editor, for me, although it's attractive. My main reason for the two stars is, with almost every project I work on, every time I export, the entire computer crashes via kernel panic and I have to start over. I've tried everything undet the sun to keep this from happening and no dice. This is a $300 program on a $3000 computer. I just edited my last work—I'm doing simple cuts, not major editing—on my phone with Adobe Premiere Rush (!) because FCP kept shutting down everything it touched. This is absolutely bonkers for this to be happening on the professional level.

10.4.9

3
5 stars to 3. I've been using FCPX professionally for years. Unfortunalty 10.4.9 is very buggy on my 8 core 2019 iMac running Mojave. Previous version was buttery smooth. I never write reviews but felt I needed to this time as FCPX is currently frozen on my system. Apple, please get these bugs fixed up soon. Thanks

I tried to switch back

2
I have FCP version 5.1.4 on one of my old iMacs and love it. But, when Apple switched FCP to the iMove format a few years back, I jumped on the Adobe Premiere train. I recently had the opportunity to try the new resigned FCP X program and I honestly can not stand the lack of flexibility in the program. 1. You can not move the workspace “tools” windows around. You have to stick to the default options that Apple setup. It drives me nuts!
 2. When you want to create a timeline, you press new project, not new timeline. Then when you right click on a clip in that project, which is on the timeline, it will say, “left from storyline”. Storyline, timeline or project, why did apple do this? 
 3. Then the project “timeline” or is it the storyline?? Either way it is not that friendly at all. I’ve been trying to move a few clips around, but the project automatically snaps the rest of my clips in place. I do not like the fact that you can not just click a clip and move it anywhere on the timeline (storyline / project). You have to left click to either add a storyline, or lift the storyline. 2 Stars - The reason for the 2 starts, the program does take a advantage of my eGPU. If you are using Premiere or have the old FCP X version 5, I would not recommend switching back to FCP X (2020).

10.4.9 is rubbish!

1
Keeps deleting projects when you change the name or in one instance just opening the text field to modify.

Took a bit, and got great!

I bought FCP X when it came out and had been editing on Final cut pro, since version 1. This took a while to get where it is, but its great. Simple, clean, easy to use. I do miss a viewer at times with its own play button, but so much else is easier and faster. The UI is great as well.

10.4.9 is crazy BUGGY

1
After updating, FCPX crashed upon opening over and over. Finally I deleted preferences and it opened up again. But now it crashes instantly if I try to rename a project. This has happened over and over...it's not a fluke, it's a bug. Seriously Apple? Did anyone test this before farming it out to the masses??

MXF Files Won't Play From Sony Cameras

1
Just upgraded too 10.4.9 and the files form my Sony camera will no longer play. It says there is a "missing plug-in". I have the latest version of the Pro Video Formats updates so that isn't the issue. Literally can't do any work at the moment because of this. I spent most of the night searching for a silution and have yet to find anything. Everything was working on the last version prior to the update. I've tried uninstalling FCPX and re-installing and still not working. Not sure what to do at this point.
