Slowly Transitioning Away From Apple Software...

Final Cut Pro 10.2.3 is, the simplest way to put it; an absolute disaster. I’m not sure if this is present to other 15” models with the discreet graphics by either AMD or NVIDIA but I have the 2015 model released in May of last year with the AMD R9 M370X and ever single time I would close Final Cut Pro, the cursor would just start ghosting across the screen and the only way I’d be able to get rid of it is if I slightly peak to the other desktops I have with the three finger gesture. I know it’s not hardware related because it exclusively happens with Final Cut Pro. It’s just horrendous. I am losing hope and patience with Apple and Tim Cook being at the forefront. This is just unaccpetable. Apple’s standard nowadays, I truly believe is lower than Microsoft now. Seriously. And the worst thing about it is they don’t acknowledge their customers at all with our concerns. They just blindly ignore us and look the other way. Watch them deny this review. I bet no one is going to be able to see this. It’s completely atrocious.

Working As Expected

I had a few issues with previous versions of FCPX, but this new version appears to be working just as well as I’d expect it to. It does what I need without holding me back with long wait times or bugs.

There are so many bugs

Seems like Apple doesn’t care about Final Cut users anymore. There are a lot of problems with the current Final Cut X. Sometimes when you import video, the video goes black. You can see anything, even though you can go back o the orginal file and it works perfectly. Get Adobe Premiere instead!
