Yesterday, Apple released FCPX (see our blog post) and there were emotions all over the spectrum, so we decided to quickly put together a live conversation with Philip Hodgetts who had been given a copy of FCPX the week before it was released and therefore we had someone with more experience using it than those who had just purchased it yesterday. We wanted some balanced input on the good and bad of FCPX from someone who had worked with Apple – and we got it in this 1 hour 20 minute conversation!
As we predicted, there's a whole bunch of issues to be addressed just like what happened when Apple rewrote iMovie from scratch – and eventually FCPX will be most things to everyone. But those who were expecting a miracle to happen are disappointed and I'm sorry that happened.
FCPX is a fun program and will grow into a great one.
