Mind-blowing integration

Wow, the new Simon Says extension for FCPX is incredible! So simple to use, fast, convenient, powerful, with many options for the way you want to work with the transcripts in the app. Very excited to continue to use it on my current project and into the future.

A great leap forward! UPDATE

Simon Says is simple, fast and accurate! It does one of my favorite things, take the tech out of the way to make more time for creativity. Sync clips and multicam now working. More to come!
