Customer Reviews

Caution: Good new features, but loses compatibility with older projects

Caution: Version 10.4.x has well-worthwhile new features, such as the color tools. I upgraded from 10.2.3. Be warned that 10.4.x is not compatible with projects created under 10.2.x. New projects will have to be started completely from scratch. It claims to convert older libraries but does so with substantial corruption to them. If you have to continue work on, or revise your older projects, you will need to keep a separate system boot disk of El Capitan with Final Cut Pro X 10.2.x on it (10.4.x will not run on El Capitan and 10.2.x will not run on High Sierra) to access these projects again.

The user interface has been rearranged, but this will just require an hour or two of re-learning to become accustomed to it.

What can i say...

I bought FCPX about a year ago, right after i bought my 2015 MacBook Pro. (I don’t want the touchbar, thank you.) Because i was sick of editing my home videos on iMovie, and wanted something with a bit more features. And this did not fail my expectations.
First, the import gave a crazy amount of options, for things like “Optimized Media” and “Proxy Media”, as well as automatic analyzing and correction of audio files. and you could leave the soource files in the original location or copy it to the library.
Second, being able to arrange it on two monitors was a huge improvement over iMovie. I use one as a media browser, and the other for my timeline, inspector, viewers (yes, there’s an option for two), and effects/transitions.
Third, being able to store my media and projects in separate libraries really allows me to organize my movies.

The only downside i see with this program, and really is just a feature i think would be cool, is the ability to use three monitors, instead of just two. I did find a way to do that once, but it didn’t work too well.

8/10

I love all the plug ins I can download to make my projects look so much cooler but ever since I updated FCP, I keep getting that stupid effing color wheel everytime I literally do anything. I could make a simple blade at a clip and the color wheel would load again. I wish I hadn’t of updated because I didn’t have the problem before I did. And I’ve tried everything to stop the color wheel. I even close all the windows out and I won’t even add any transitions or effects until after I’ve arranged everything but nothing works!
