Embarassing release

Damn,

this FCPX is the most embarassing release ever. I’ve tried to make a simple compositing and looks like it’s impossible to apply a transition to a simple compositing or PinP. Also there’s no soft borders available (it seems). The Aja Kona support is ridiculous too. The color correction tool is a joke, and the missing of a preview window is the most stupid thing of this software. I don’t like it.

Haha, wow, tell us how you really feel :-)

(however, I'm crying on the inside)

can you make your composition into a compound clip then apply a transition to that?

I tried but I’m not able to put a transition if I make a picture in picture with the 2d editor... even if I make a compound clip...

This software is a mess....

Personally, I think that Windows Vista was the most embarrassing software release so far. But someone will someday have the distinction of making a worse one. Just like "Gigli" eventually made "Ishtar" look like a decent film.

Apple has had bad releases before. Some with FCP, some not.

Avid has had some real stinkers. Adobe, too. It happens to all software companies that have the luck to stay in business long enough to make a mistake.

And I wouldn't call this release embarrassing. Maybe a bit premature, perhaps, but far from embarrassing. More like a work in progress- as is all good software, in the end.

Yes, there are features missing, but many of those will probably come in updates over the next few months. Even if you can't lay back to tape today, you absolutely can cut and trim video, and that's what editors really do most of the time. the tape layback (and EDL support, I hope!) will probably come soon. And even if it doesn't AJA and Black Magic already have utilities that do this.

Be patient, the app was only released this morning. Maybe tomorrow it will get better, maybe next month. In the meantime, FCP 7 will still work. As will Avid and Premiere, if those suit your needs better.

It's only software. Not the rapture.

Its not only software, its a tool to make a living. And when everyone else is using power drills and getting lots of work done...you look pretty silly and inefficient sitting there with a hand crank drill in your hands. Get it?
