you must have not used Final Cut Pro or Premiere in the Past a?
Even Avid did not have AJA support until recently! lol That find on the AJA site.
Besides why did you pay 399 for a Beta if you can get it for 299 in the App store? :lol:

You buy a car that would without tires, but with the promise that in a few weeks would create them yet?

I've never used Avid and Premiere (Pro) using FCP since version 3.0, buying, upgrading to version 7.0.3.

FCP X is a beta program!!

I bought FCP X, Motion and Compressor 5 in App Store $ 399.00.

Motion 5 has greatly improved, but still has a very useful feature RAM Preview, Render to RAM whatever. So I still prefer After Effects.

Why would I buy the car and not wait until it was created? Besides the Rim and Tire Industry is making a killing so I would guess people do by tires after they have bought a car. :silly:
If you can't see what happening and take 1 and 1 and add them up then I don't know what to tell you. Alone you saying you prefer a Program over another... I would suggest the right tool for the right job. Besides if used it since V3 then you know how long it took for Final Cut Pro to be what it is today.


But I will let this thread to be what it was meant to be... and you can keep ranting about FCPX in every positive thread you want.

Check you later dude!

P.S. don't go to a Italian restaurant and order Hamburger ... ;)

Why do I have to wait for the next FCP X? Because I have to believe in promises? If I change my way of editing, move on to another program, you do not plan to change my way of thinking.

P.S. don't go to a Italian restaurant and order Hamburger ...

Why not??? If he does, he will serve.

Think of FCP X as just another tool. You dont have to dump FCP 7. I did an SDE at a dancing competition with 120 hours of footage. It took me 2 hours to capture via XDCAM transfer (that would have been faster in Log and Transfer in FCP7) and then 2 hours to edit in FCP X and then play out to a screen.
FCPX simply rocked and I completed a 3.20min edit in just over two hours when it would have taken at least three hours in FCP7.
I exported to a QT movie as I was not confident of playing it off the timeline just yet. The client was blown away after being a little anxious when he asked how it was going earlier on.

If you liken FCP X to the car analogy it is like buying a hybrid Prius. It is not a muscle car and its new dashboard is a little off-putting. Unless you are prepared to take it for a test drive and look under the hood, dont buy it and dont complain about it. In fact this little hybrid car runs faster than the muscle car while using less fuel (or doing less work).
I have been using FCP since day one and it was getting slow and the interface was tiring. It needed a facelift. Avid has had the same interface for fifteen years.

You don't need to wait. And certainly you don't need to keep posting the same in every FCPX forum you find.

If you don't like FCPX, move on, go to Avid, Premiere, Vegas or even Moviola. Don't waste your and our time. There are topics in every forum related to that. This topic is not.

same goes for people who "love" the new program.
I can't even think about purchasing it I can't even import Canon XF files, so for now it's no- go for me.

Perhaps you are not reading the post title. Obviously is for people who did like the program.

There is a free tutorial from MacProVideo at the App store. Go to App Store and search for FCP. There are six tutorials from MPV. Michael is one of the original developers of the original FCP and loves the new FCP X. The successive lessons are around $20.
If you are learning FCPX this is the place to start.

I'm new here, and I'll be honest I fought FCPX for a long time...preferring FCP 7 or even Adobe Premiere. A friend of mine who started using FCPX told me I should at least give it a try. At the time I was editing very short comedy sketches for a YouTube channel, so I thought maybe, at least, it would be easy to edit these on FCPX. And my surprise...IT WAS EASY and QUICK! For awhile I used it for those shorts and a few 30 or 60 sec pieces I was working on, and told people I used it for quick projects and still used version 7 for my bigger edits (short films, docs).

But...as time has gone on, I have come to like some of the features of X. So...in March of this year, after shooting a short film for a week in the mountains of North Carolina, I decided to start from scratch with FCPX and edit the entire short with it. Although I ran into a few hiccups, and found that the new trackless timeline could a pain in the butt, I've completely shifted to using FCPX full time on my edits. I'm still learning new things, and I'm hoping Apple will still beef it up as we get into more versions.

I do with I could open up my old FCP projects in X. And it seems the new Logic Pro X can open old Logic files, so maybe it's something Apple will add into a future release.

Thanks to everyone on this site, it's really teaching me a lot!!!!

Apple is not going to add that to FCPX, but if you need to, you can export your sequences to FCPX from FCP7 with Intelligent Assistance 7toX. It's cheap (9,99 bucks) and works very well.

What I was wondering about xto7: do you still need to have FCP Legacy versions installed or can you open the results directly in Premiere?

As long as you have a FCP 7 xml you can open it in Premiere. I've done this many times to transfer projects from FCP X to Premiere when needed.

Not exactly.
You still need FCP7 to EXPORT XML from one sequence, but you don't need it to open the XML file in another NLE

Hi Doug,

FCPX is a different beast to the initial release. If you want to get 7 into x, theres a good app called 7toX that does that with XML.

I freaking LOVE FCPX!
It might be the most brilliant application ever, all categories. Using "classic" FCP now feels like going back to the 90s...

I was hoping they would do a similar total make over of Logic, but sadly it was just a few baby steps in the right direction. Maybe because of all the narrowminded "it's not working like in FCP7, it's crap" whiners complaining about FCPX so the decided to take it slow with Logic :(

LPX, I'd have to say, is a HUGE step forward, not baby steps.

I wish they had changed it more. It still feels like Logic ;)
And I wish they had come up with a super easy to use tie-in with FCPX, that didn't need exporting etc etc...
