Love Final Cut Pro but since the latest update my Macbook Pro 2.5GHZ has been reduced to a crawl when running this program. Soooo slow!! Not good Apple - please fix!

it was ok before but this v10.3.4 it crashes all the time cannot do anything with it. Please fix it.

The Future Of Post Production (Updated to 10.3)

**Updated for 10.3**

I’ve been a long advocate of Final Cut Pro X for a considerable amount of time now, cutting various forms of commercial, corporate, feature and short films on it. It’s a considerable all round NLE. I started with Final Cut Pro 7 (or Classic), and moved to Premiere Pro shortly after. Had it not been for a client using FCP X I would not be using it today.

This application reignited the passion I had for video editing. The way the application works and how fast you can work in it is something you won’t get anywhere else. The magnetic timeline is difficult to get your head around at first, but there is this “Ah ha!” moment that everyone goes through and once it “clicks”, you’ll never want to go back to anything else.

It’s 3rd party ecosystem is rich and powerful, with plugin developers like CoreMelt, MotionVFX, Alex4D, Ripple Training and so so many more making awesome tools for FCP X that make the long, boring tasks super easy and quick.

The metadata possibilities of FCP X are seemingly endless (think of it like a database with a timeline), the use of Keywords, Favourites and Rejects, Roles, are just some of the many ways to organise your media.

The 10.3 update is the love letter to the professionals, the way the team have updated the app brings professional, and forward thinking tools to the hands of the editor, tools we’ve never seen before. Audio organisation using Roles, being able to swap and organise your timeline easily and quickly based upon the metadata you enter, it’s so fast you just need to try it.

Now, as one customer to another, you need to learn how to use it first. If you’re reading this and you’re considering purchasing FCP X, go for the 30-day trial first on Apple’s website. It’s free and it gives you a chance to understand the software and learn how to use it. Also, use it on a job, on something that you’re going to be working on for a while to completely understand the new paradigm. Get training, watch videos, spend time to understand and grasp the new concepts. It will only improve how you edit in FCPX.

On a final note, I can’t recommend FCP X enough. It’s the best NLE I have ever used and it will be for a very very long time, there is no competition.
