Apple Updates Final Cut Pro X, Among Other Things

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 02:00 AM

"The X version of Final Cut Pro was supposed to be all things to all people -- easier and more power for the serious amateurs and yet refreshing and comprehensive for the pros. In reality it seemed that neither camp quite saw it that way, but Apple has at least been listening."

Lots of updates that will hopefully appease those that weren't too happy with this when it was initially released. I've never used it but from some of the feedback I've read, it certainly does look like Apple was listening to and addressed the concerns. Well, at least some of them. And this wasn't the only update released, as they also released some updates for Time Capsule and Airport Extreme. You can get more info from Apple on the updates from their support page here.

The Final Cut Pro Controversy

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 07:00 AM

"It's only been on the Mac App Store for a few days, but Final Cut Pro X has already stirred up a whole messy pot of controversy."

Those words opening the (in my opinion a must read if you are interested in Final Cut Pro X) Macworld article "How Apple re-cut Final Cut Pro for the better" couldn't be more appropriate since, as of late, users are rebelling against this latest version called Final Cut Pro X. In fact, there is even an online petition to show just how upset people are that Apple has revamped Final Cut Pro into the X version. Making demands via online petition such as this seem like a waste of time to me (especially when I see words used such as devastate... come on really?), although it might make those that subscribe to it feel better. I think if you are not happy with it, don't use it. Either continue to use your version of Final Cut Pro until Apple adds the features you want to this software or you can always switch to another software. Apple is going to do what Apple has always done, namely whatever they want. And like any other business they will reap the benefits, or the lack thereof, by their actions when the marketplace reacts. So with all the hoopla over this new version what has happened? Apple is offering those that aren't happy with the latest version a full refund, taking the stance of "we know you aren't happy so you can have your money back, but we aren't changing anything." Time will tell if this is the right move, but I think it is. What are your thoughts?

Apple to Issue Refunds on Request for Unhappy Final Cut Pro X Users

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 01:30 PM

"TheNextWeb reports that Apple has begun returning the $299 purchase price of Final Cut Pro X to customers who are unsatisfied with the product's features and capabilities."

I'm going out on a limb here and guessing that these refunds will be for those that have used Final Cut Pro in previous versions, not from those that are new to the software. From all that I have read, while it is true that it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of previous versions of Final Cut Pro, it does make it easier for those with little or no experience to learn Final Cut Pro. So while current users could stick with the version they have and continue using it as is, newcomers to the program won't be faced with such a steep learning curve. I have never used it, but based on what I've read so far I'm thinking I might give it a go. What are your thoughts?

Macworld's First Look at Final Cut Pro X

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 12:00 PM

"With the release of its hotly anticipated Final Cut Pro X (FCP X), Apple breaks new ground-not just with its flagship video editor's interface and underlying infrastructure-but with the whole mindset of what it means to be a working professional video editor."

This is a first look but it does hit the major points of Final Cut Pro X including workflow, rolling, magnetic timeline, clips, library and effects. According to Macworld, Final Cut Pro X is "has been re-designed from the ground up with a radically different approach-one that acknowledges and uses device and camera data in a manner that has never before been attempted in the video editing environment."

They also state this is the future of the way data streams from all devices will work in the future. If you use Final Cut Pro, it sounds like you need this version.
