Final Cut Pro X
Today we had a quick run through FCP X. Which looks like an iPhone app.
Then we were told to play on it for a few hours to get used to it. It was the first time I had edited with it in depth. Surprisingly, it is possible to edit with. I still hate the interface and the colour. There is a reason the background should be grey and not black...Easier on the eye.
Interesting points about FCP X:
- There is no "Save" option because it automatically saves for you
- There is only one monitor which plays both your Source and your Timeline when you scrub over it
- It shows all your Projects at once
- You can just pull clips in front of each other on the Timeline without deleting, it automatically pushes everything along
If someone paid me to edit with FCP X I would.
Now, who will pay me?
