    Good once you learn it...

    • Written by from Broken Arrow

    I was one of the people who disliked Final Cut X because I couldn't do several things. Then, after using it for a while, I figured out how to do those things. If you can learn how to make groups and compound clips (command-g and alt-g, use w to make gaps, and the range tool, r, to export pieces of the timeline) you can do just about everything you did in Final Cut 7.

    I have a few frustrations with FCX, but I had problems with FC7 when I originally learned that. You will trade frustrations for different frustrations, but in the end, you can do much more with FCX than FC7, and faster.

    The future of editing!

    Many are short sighted because they don't understand the new workflow, but FCP X eliminates a lot of the mindless, tedious work, speeds overall workflow, and makes is easier to get a full production editing and done much faster.
