Customer Reviews

Running Great, Good Features

I didn’t use FCP X for many years because it didn’t seem professional enough for my needs, but I decided to use it after I saw how much far and ahead it utilizes the iMac and MBP hardware compared to Premiere Pro CC. So glad I made the jump! Effortlessly editing a 1.5 hour long movie on it with a the late 2015 iMac, adding lots of LUTs / effects, and it’s running great and has professional features for me to utilize. It can take a little getting used because it’s a different non-linear editor than most, but once you get the hang of it it’s great. If you want a professional video editing software that is continually getting better and utilizes your Apple hardware more than any other non-linear editor, then I think you’ll be happy with your purchase.

Worth the Money!

FCPX is a great investment! You can do all kinds of things with it, and make video up to 5K quality at 60fps! I use it on a 2010 Macbook Pro, and it still functions very well. It costs only $300 and is worth every penny; it does almost as much as Adobe Premiere Pro, which costs more than twice as much.

If you've used iMovie for any amount of time, you'll be able to catch on to Final Cut Pro very quickly. It has the same style of editing with many more transitions, effects, and titles, as well as many more features.

P.S. Many people say that the new update is low quality; however, it's just structured differently. You can get used to it easily.

Very professional !

the final cut pro app is awesome ! it has all of the tools you could possibly use to form a real comercial or even tv show ! i would highly recomend !
