It’s not that‘s filmmakers’ collaboration website wasn’t interesting before – it’s just that they’ve clearly been doing a LOT of work since the initial release, and their community has grown very, very quickly. Try a Final Cut Pro X extension which makes it as simple to output selected clips from a timeline as DaVinci Resolve 12, and 50,000+ users from 120 countries now online.

There have been other improvements too, notably around permissions and privacy.

It’s a slick web site, and Final Cut Pro Companion is a slick app.
