We don’t use ink to express our opinions any more, which is a shame. If we did, I could start this out by talking about the ocean of ink that’s been spilled on Final Cut Pro X over the past couple of days, and how hardly a drop of it has been positive, and how Apple deserves every last speck and…
I’ve never used Final Cut seriously as I settled on the Windows platform and went from SONY Vegas Pro to Premiere Pro CS5 in Dec 2010. The very issues around last weeks release of Final Cut Pro X is the very reason why I’ve avoided the limited Apple ecosystem – and now all it’s professional users are paying a heavy price. At least the migration to Adobe Premiere Pro is a true viable option as it iopens all their Final Cut Pro 7 and earlier XML export files.

Ironic how this mouthpiece video from Apple with the BBC touting the use of Final Cut now seems a total contradiction in terms with Apple having released FCPX.

Apple has literally screwed the many pro users who’ve built their post production businesses on Final Cut Pro.

The release of FCPX by Apple is a total fiasco to those loyal users.

The BBC saw the writing on the walls and made the switch to Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 in Sept 2010, purchasing an initial 2000 license seats – and their preferred platform is PC based, not MAC.  That speaks volumes to this one man shop who edits in Premiere Pro CS5 on the PC platform.
