    Apple seems to be issuing more frequent updates like Davinci Resolve studio.... I have the paid version for both. Three things they need to fix is the built in luts & the option for drop down Panasonic V-log, Canon C-log & Sony S-log to rec 709 rec 2020 & other options. Eliminate the requirement of dragging custom lut then the desired lut. Add H265 master file as a export option in the dropdown options without the user needing to manually add it.
  • Love this program, but rendering video freezes my computer up every time now after updating Mac OS

    I've been using Imovie for a couple years now and it got the job done. However I thought it was time for an upgrade. I bought Final Cut Pro hoping it would take me to the next level, however this app is terrible, completey non user friendly, and barely has any more perks than Imovie. Afeter only a week since the purhcsae I attempted to refund my purchase, but was denied with no explanation. Shame on you APPLE. I'll take my chances with Adobe!
  • Some Bugs / Enhancements

    Freezes when you delete / adjust clips with >= 5 adjustment layers Make grabbing the edges of the windows easier - its too small of an edge to grab Make it possible to enlarge / view in a second window the curves / hue saturation color stuff, for more precision Want to be able to select a clip / adjusment layer and create a lut from it!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bug where when you have the timeline on a second display, you need to select the main window (not the second display with the timeline on it) in order to skim around using the arrows. try animating somthing using keyframes with a secondary display set as the timeline and youll see how there is a fallthrough of the comands you removed the ability to manually select the color space. i want to be able to select it manually; ive had issues when shooting in hlog bt.2020 and i want to convert it to 709 but theres no option to do so in the extended menu of the clips info. this is a major deal breaker an option to view playback at 75% or 50% or 30% or 25% similar to after effects, to help with workflow speed. currently i downscalle my projects to 720 until im ready to export, then I upscale the project to 4k . i want to be able to drag around clips with multiple layers attached. i strongly dislike not being able to move layers atop others bc there are layers attached to it. i move the layers one by one and everything works, so i want the ability to move around multiple layers. the ability to command shift and select specific media, right now only shift and selecting multiple clips works, but it selects clips inbetween them. i dont want that, i want to be able to select clips the same why how i select items in finder using command shift the program really freaks out when you adjust complex things inside of a clip that is a group of clips (command g, kinda like the editing equivlient of a class) out side of this clip made up of multiple elements the timline works smoohtly, but if the nesting causes a great falloff of perfromance and normally causes a crash. this happens more so when there is multiple layers of nesting clips inside eachother - which is majorly convient btw masks and letterboxing inside a nested clip (multiple clips made into a new clip by selecting them and using option g) do not work properly and cut off weird bits of the image i keep my fcp libraries on an external drive, as do many people bc we may be using older machines or not have enough space on the computer. all media and motion inside the library in the externall ssd. but over the course of a few months, my machines HD still get bloated with stuff in the "System" which i cannot find and delete. hundrads of gb worth. i wipe every once in a while to remedy this but its not ideal when selecting multiple clips, and the viewing the color correction added to them, if i delete one adjustment, i want that adjustment gone on all of them (if the adjustment is identical and they have the same name then they are the same) feel free to contact me with further questions mbp 2013 retina 15" i7 8gb ram
  • So Cool! (but needs one additional item)

    After using iMovie since I bought my first Mac, I grew tired of the limitations this free (yet versitile) app provides. Hmm, what to do. There are a lot of video editing apps available -- free and otherwise -- I had considered. First off, Adobe was out of the question. Why should anybody pay a monthly fee to use something they own. You rent apartments and cars, not software. Da Vinci was another consideration, but that was a can off worms. Enter Final Cut Pro X and her companion apps Compressor and Motion! Sure, 400 is a chunk of cash to lay down for most people when purchasing all three apps. But after getting my feet wet with my first project (a video of my nephew's first birthday and baptism) I discovered just how easy and intuitive Final Cut Pro really is. If you have ever done anything with iMovie, then you will find FCP relatively easy to use. There are a few differeces in the way things are done, but that should not hold you back. Those differences actually provide much more functionality. The things I like most about this app are the colour correction and the multitude of output options that include dvd and blu-ray. Chapter markers with thumbnails is also quite awesome. And they are all easy to impliment. My only gripe would be that this app and her companion apps need better disc menus that are fully customisable. I do not want to buy a cute little app to make cute little menus. I want to make professional looking disc menus from within these Apple-built apps. Fully customisable and fully functional. What do you say, Apple? Can you do this for us? Pleeeeeease??? Also, be sure to download the user guide available in Books. God bless!
  • Not a Professional editor but good enough.

    Final Cut Pro X 10.3.4 I bought FCPX solely to get off the Adobe subscription train (I loath software as a service, forced subscription model companies have these days), I mainly use FCPX to edit videos for youtube so my review is based on this type of work flow. FCPX works great once you learn how to use it and under stand some of the quarks that apple seemed to add just because they are apple and have to be different. Be sure to watch tutorials on youtube to find out where the feature you use in other editors, otherwise you might pull your hair out trying to find it on your own. FCPX falls short... well its more like falls on its face when it comes to the Exporting with a compression process (specifically h.264 codec). FCPX just really limits you on Export option and hides the ones they do have in a “Add distinction” option under “Share”. If you want more control over your exporting option and be able to batch export, you will need to by apples “Compressor” app to go with FCPX. Even with both apps your h.264 quality is poor and the processing time is long. To solve this issue I have to use another 3rd party app (freeware) called “HandBrake” this little app compress almost any type of video file into h.264 format with great quality and amazing speed. My work flow is this: Once my video is all edited in FCPX and ready for export I send the project to apples “Compressor” and with Compressor i add my custom export setting (for me i use apple ProRes 4:2:2 ). This produces are super high quality video at a very fast render time, but the video file is very large. That will be remedy with “HandBrake” by compressing the the 30gig video file down to 1gig and keep the same high quality look with a great render time. Having to go through all those steps and use multiple programs it is still faster and better quality than trying to export out of FCPX it’s self. For this Exporting weakness that FCPX has i’m nocking off 2 Stars, Apple should fix this there is no reason Apple cant make a h.264 compressing codex that compares to Adobe and HandBrake. Even with all that said i’m happy with my purchase of FCPX it has saved me hundreds of dollars just from subscription fees and it does everything i need it to do.

    This is the best NLE tool on earth. Everything about FCP has slowly been perfected over time.

    Clips will overlap each other and fall through on the timeline. Text effects will randomly change font and glitch out making it almost impossible to correct unless a compound is made. I use FinalCut Pro X exclusively just about every day.
  • Stalls on Mac Pro...DOES NOT WORK! beware...

    Paid for an application that no longer works. Used for a few months and somthing recent has happend where after opening the app it appears to be loading, but it never does and stalls. Only option is to restart only to have this endless loop repeat. FIX THIS PROBLEM!!! I'm using this on a $8k Mac Pro with Mohave and more than enough HD space and RAM, why does this not work?? Have tried to uninstall/reinstall, same issue - unacceptable.
