Professionally Editing Since First Version

I was on FCP 7 and when X came out, everyone jumped ship. Not me. I've been steady with it since day one and it keeps getting better and better. I've been professionally editing on it. We have no issues. And it's much easier to learn than some of the other editing software options out there.

I tried to switch back

I have FCP version 5.1.4 on one of my old iMacs and love it. But, when Apple switched FCP to the iMove format a few years back, I jumped on the Adobe Premiere train.

I recently had the opportunity to try the new resigned FCP X program and I honestly can not stand the lack of flexibility in the program.

1. You can not move the workspace “tools” windows around. You have to stick to the default options that Apple setup. It drives me nuts!

2. When you want to create a timeline, you press new project, not new timeline. Then when you right click on a clip in that project, which is on the timeline, it will say, “left from storyline”. Storyline, timeline or project, why did apple do this? 

3. Then the project “timeline” or is it the storyline?? Either way it is not that friendly at all. I’ve been trying to move a few clips around, but the project automatically snaps the rest of my clips in place. I do not like the fact that you can not just click a clip and move it anywhere on the timeline (storyline / project). You have to left click to either add a storyline, or lift the storyline.

2 Stars - The reason for the 2 starts, the program does take a advantage of my eGPU.

If you are using Premiere or have the old FCP X version 5, I would not recommend switching back to FCP X (2020).

Crashes my MBP completely

I want to love this program, even though it's not intuitive to use. And it's not as easy to use as a truly linear editor, for me, although it's attractive. My main reason for the two stars is, with almost every project I work on, every time I export, the entire computer crashes via kernel panic and I have to start over. I've tried everything undet the sun to keep this from happening and no dice. This is a $300 program on a $3000 computer. I just edited my last work—I'm doing simple cuts, not major editing—on my phone with Adobe Premiere Rush (!) because FCP kept shutting down everything it touched. This is absolutely bonkers for this to be happening on the professional level.
