We have had reports in from a few sources that the top of the range iMac has had problems when running Final Cut Pro X and Motion. Surely the machine must have enough horsepower, what is going on?
We feature many new products here on FCP.co, but we thought it was time to post a range of new free tutorials for FCPX and Motion5 that have been published so far this year. Lots in there for Final Cut Pro X and Motion.
