Final Cut Pro X Or Really iMovie Pro?
Apple introduced Final Cut Pro X earlier this week with the tag line "Everything just changed in post." I guess it depends on what you mean by the word 'changed'. Apple said they showed the pre-release version to professional editors and their jaws dropped. One Academy Award-winning editor said he was "blown away" by the modern and fast software that let's you focus on telling your story without worrying about the technical details. Now that it's released, many critics and early Final Cut Pro X downloaders are telling a different story. Some are even suggesting they will jump ship from what many are calling iMovie Pro or much worse. Out of 742 customer ratings on the Apple Store right now, 45% are giving the software one star, the lowest rating possible.
