Final Cut Pro X Updated to Version 10.0.2
Apple's premier video editing software gets an update today!
Final Cut Pro is a very large part of the market for professional video editors. Not so much Final Cut Pro X, but Final Cut Pro Studio (9) was a big hit. Final Cut Pro X is a bit of a downgrade from Final Cut Pro Studio, but what do you expect from software that is only $300, versus $1,000?
Final Cut Pro X takes Final Cut Studio's key features and compresses them into a beautiful iMovie-like workspace. It's elegant, fast, and fun to use. I've used Final Cut Pro X now for several months and I really enjoy using it. Sometimes I shoot video just to use it because it's fun to play with and have control over video that you film. Final Cut Pro X is a $299.99 application Available in the Mac App Store and offers some unique features that other video software just can't have.
Final Cut Pro X is a Mac-only Application so it supports Mac OS X Lion's multitouch gestures, full screen applications feature, and allows you to import media directly from your devices and begin editing with full hyperthreading support for Apple's new core i5 and core i7 processor computers. It also takes full advantage of turbo boost in Intel's Sandy Bridge processors. Final Cut Pro X uses all of these boosts to compile your video as fast as possible, and with all of the features made available to you, you're never locked down to cheap transitions like you may find in the stock version of Adobe Premiere Pro. I would recommend Final Cut Pro X over Adobe Premiere Pro any day.
So what's new in the 10.0.2 update?

Wow, how does that Kool-Aid taste?

Still the most sorry piece of s**t (I mean software) that Apple has ever released. While I have yet to jump from my trusted FCP 7, comparing FCPX to Adobe Premiere Pro is comparing apples to oranges. FCPX was and still is an affront to FCP users.

Bug fixes? You need to be adding major features Apple. Not tinkering with minor annoyances.

I think Anthony Bouchard is the only person around that actually likes Final Cut Pro X. The software is horrible and everyone knows it, but there are just some people that will defend Apple no matter what BS they release.

Final Cut Pro X is a downgrade from the entire studio suite...but as far as an upgrade to actual Final Cut Pro it's huge. I've been using Final Cut since Final Cut Pro 2. There's a huge learning curve with this new program and yes, it lacks features that major studio's need for importing and exporting and working with a huge workflow. But as far as editing, it's light years ahead of the competition. I think more and more people will begin to realize this. For those who haven't made the jump...you really don't have room to complain. Enjoy Final Cut Studio and when Final Cut Pro X finally takes off and adds all the needed features I wish you the best of luck in trying to catch up.

FC X is simply not a Professional editing tool at this point. Until they add multi-cam support it wont break into the broadcast realm. Yes its color matching and metadata organization is something all other editing programs should have. Yes they finally added XML support for the import of legacy projects, but FC X cannot even match the capabilities of Premiere + After Effects + Photoshop. No rendering between any of these programs creates an awesomely efficient workflow. Trying to bash Premiere and Adobe's products without any experience editing with them is uncalled for.The bigger issue that no one addresses is FCX is a 1.0 program. No sane professional editor would drop his current workflow to adopt a 1.0 program. At best FCX—for professionals—is a program we'll purchase to use as a secondary editor while we stick with our stable FCP, Avid, Premiere or other editing setups. In an industry with so many standards, file types, and compatibility issues, the ability to handle whatever is thrown at you is key. Only using FC X would be professional suicide. I edit video professionally on a daily basis and use FCP Studio 3, the Adobe Creative Suite, and Cinema 4D. Cutting movies on FC X is incredibly fast and efficient if you don't need any advanced title works, advanced VFX, or multicam support. Apple will improve FC X's versatility, but the speed at which they're doing so is creating the illusion that they don't care about the Professional editing community. Bottom line is Apple marketed FCX as a revolutionary step in the right direction for PROFESSIONAL editors. The product they delivered was not for professionals. If they would have marketed it as a capable prosumer app which would be upgraded eventually, then the backlash wouldn't be as severe.
