My Final Cut Pro X review now online

Click over to Studio Daily for the review


The Editblog has been relatively quiet on the subject of Final Cut Pro X (with the exception of the burning questions and omf export) since its release just a few weeks ago. That’s mainly because I had been busying really kicking the tire on the application (in addition to regular editing work) trying to dig in for the FCPX Hand On Tour webinar and a full review for Studio Daily. That review has just come online so I wanted to point to it here.

As I began working with FCPX I was jotting down notes as I went along. These were notes on things I liked, things I didn’t like, things that were missing and new things that had been added. As I was reviewing those notes for the Studio Daily review I realized they were somewhat disjointed. At times they made perfect sense and other times I couldn’t exactly decipher something that I had written down. The more I thought about the notes the more I realized that’s exactly how I felt about FCPX. It felt disjointed and unfinished but with flashes of some really useful stuff.

And as I was writing the review I realized the review itself was feeling the same way so I tried to leave that feel in the review itself. Who knows how and how fast Apple will improve FCPX (I mean … it can only get better right?) but apparently they are working on just that. Also, who knows exactly how much Apple is really going to dedicate to making it the pro-focused application that FCP7 was. With Apple’s track record of killing off most all pro-video applications I certainly wouldn’t build a business around FCPX. Thankfully there’s a lot of other choices.

I hope the Final Cut Pro X review is helpful.

Scott Simmons

Scott Simmons was born in rural West Tennessee and didn’t really realize that movies and tv had to be made by actual people until he went to college. After getting degrees in both Television Production and Graphic Design he was in one of the early graduating classes at the Watkins Film School in Nashville, Tennessee. During that time at Watkins he discovered editing. While most of his classmates in film school wanted to be directors, Scott saw real career opportunities in post production and took a job as an assistant editor after completing film school. In 1999, Scott took the leap into freelancing and in 2007 accepted a position as an editor at Filmworkers – Nashville. In 2005 Scott created The Editblog a website dedicated to all things editing and post-production which is now housed here at PVC. Someday he hopes to edit on a beach with a touch screen device, a wireless hard drive and a Red Stripe.
