When we saw this PBS survery over the weekend, we were very pleased to see how Final Cut Pro dominated the post production section. We were even happier when we saw that we could embed it here on FCP.co.
At last, some rock solid indication of how Final Cut Pro (and more importantly) FCPX are doing in the post production market. Although one could argue that their sampling wasn't high enough, this survey is nothing but good news for Apple. The survey was conducted in September of this year and shows that FCP7 & FCPX were used more than all the other NLEs put together. 1.5 times to be more precise.
The majority of Final Cut users are still on 7, but there is a healthy slice of FCPX users in there.
Apple have always been a bit coy on indicating how many copies of FCPX have been sold. All that we know is that there are more licences of FCPX out there than those of Final Cut Pro 7. It will be interesting to see the results of the same survey next year.
