Customer Reviews

Excellent Editor with Limited Compatibility

I use mulitple cameras that shoot in many different codecs and this only suppports the... majority... of them. Compressed formats like .mov and .mp4 are great and this is where Final Cut really shines. I've never used a more optimized NLE in terms of speed and render performance. The biggest problems are my Blackmagic cameras... Blackmagic RAW is not upported - in any flavor - whether you're shooting 4K, 4.6K, or even the latest 6K. You're stuck using ProRes, negating the benefits of RAW recording. Since Apple supports ProRes RAW, the likelihood of it ever supporting Blackmagic RAW is not good. Since the cameras come with copies of DR Studio, this is an EASY work-around but still annoying considering the performance gain of Final Cut. If Final Cut ever adds support for BRAW, I may hop back on the FCPx train but until then, it's not usable for what I shoot with.

Very good at specific types of editing

Every NLE I've used has it's drawbacks, and FCPX is no exception. There are certain features that FCPX lacks, such as built in tracking, and doing audio work in a "trackless" environment can be very challenging as different sources pile up. However, doing simple videos, especially green screen work, is very intuative and fast in FCPX, and being able to pick up high quality titles off the shelf has been imitated by others but not done nearly as well. Final Cut has been and still is a must have for the Mac platform.

Amazing

So easy to use and renders really quickly as well! I haven't had any issues exporting, and can always rely on this to work wonders. It's hard for me to go back to other applications! It does take time to get use to the controls, but once you do, your ease of use and flow is much quicker than any other professional editing application I've used.
