Forum Question: Anyone using FCP X yet?

The demo movies online look like FCP X is where I want to be. Especially saving clips with the cutaways et al in place. Please let me know what you think

    I haven’t tried it myself yet. I plan on getting into it later this summer. I’ll do some video tutorials on it if it seems that it would interest many MacMost viewers

    Prior to the release of FCP X I considered myself to be very proficient with iMovie. When I first heard about the pending release of FCP X I was anxious to see if could fit into my video editing workflow. When it was finally released I wanted to see what kind of feedback would be coming from the “wild”. As I’m sure you have read, there is a lot of disappointment in various elements of the pro community. Since I do not consider myself a pro, I took what I read with a grain of salt. Last weekend I decided to take the plunge to see if it was a viable candidate to replace my use of iMovie. My initial reaction is WOW. Not only is it robust in functionality, it is also proficient in the use of hardware. FCP X is not as intuitive as iMovie (my opinion), however it does follow a similar input, editing and output process. As I discovered in my testing, there are many additional processes that make this software a winner for me. I am currently in the process of taking some of my more complex iMovie projects an converting them for use within FCP X. A word of caution….I do not recommend the application to a new iMovie user. However, if you consider yourself to be an intermediate or advanced iMovie user, then by all means consider making the move to FCP X.

      Interesting. Thanks Ray. I can’t wait to dig into FCPX myself.
