Amazing Video Software

I am a more basic user when it comes to video editing, and this program along with Motion 5 has really increased my capabilities to create a masterpiece. I highly suggest this program for anyone that is debating to buy other types of video editing programs. Toast is outdated and does not look good on the MACs with Retina Display, and this has some amazing templates and features that I have not seen with even Adobe programs. Since I am not too talented I have purchased a few templates from a vendor for Motion 5 that I use to export to Final Cut Pro X. Let me say, the results are incredible. My movies look like a professional made them and yet I am a college student that doesn’t have much experience. I am so glad that I invested the money to buy this; now everyone is paying me to make slideshows for their weddings. If you want easy to use (easier than other video editing programs) high quality editing software that brings you amazing results… Look no farther. The $300 is well spent for sure. Purchasing Premiere Pro CS6 costs a fortune and even the CC version costs $20-$30 per month for as long as you want to use it. This software is cheaper after 10 months of use, and that sure goes by quick.

iMovie Seriously!!

So after the iMovie update (Dumbed Down) I figured it was time for a real editing program. When I heard Pro got vamped up to make use of the new hardware available I decided to take the plunge since I purchased the 2013 iMac with the i7. Was going to go with the Mac Pro, but not happy with new design. My old Mac Pro will be used as server now. I know there has been some maoning and complaining about the changes, but if you didn’t use the old versions I don’t think you’ll feel the pain. I can relate to that by dealing with Logic Pro. All reviews I have read were spot on. Works like a charm for a newcomer such as myself. Love review comments on most websites… PC people crying about making it for Windows…Really? To be honest I made the switch to MAC just because I had always heard the Photography, Music, and Video side of life is what MAC is all about. I use Adobe Photoshop CS6, Logic Pro, and now Final Cut. To be honest now that I’ve been using Mac’s for about 3 years I can safely say, "I hate PC’s and Windows with a passion". I get it now. Just wish I would have gotten it back in the 80’s when I first started in computing.
Great Software, and the fun stuff you can do with it is sweet!!

“Carry On"

Was VERY tentative about getting FCPX

I have been editing for over 10 years now. I was using a version of FCP6… I decided to give FCPX a try, hoping that the updates that have come out over the last few years this has been out has smoothed things over.

I don’t know what all the griping is about… I spent 1 day editing a project and I think I can edit just as fast on FCPX as I could on FCP6. There are certain things I miss about FCP6… but honestly it could be that I just haven’t mastered it yet. The pro’s out weigh the con’s. It is much faster and NO RENDERING. Hear that? NO RENDERINGGGGG!!!! I edited a project using a Canon 5D and a Panasonic HMC150… and I didn’t have to render one time. Think of all the hours you spent rendering… I give it 5 stars on that alone.

Maybe you can do more on the older versions… but do you realize there was a time when people actually cut film with scissors and glued them together to make cuts? The software you use doesn’t make or break an editor! I’ll take an academy award winning editor using iMovie than your pretentious self using Avid or whatever you think is the best program. But I digress.

Anyway if you are on the fence about it, I say buy it.
