Why didn't anyone ask if FCP x does what you need it to do when editing a feature?" That would have been a great question



I wear many hats.

That kind of level-headed, thoughtful analysis has no place here!

I thought he was pretty clear on that:

“It needs a few key things. In order for us to do a [David] Fincher film on it, you’ve got to be able to switch between multiple cameras, so with that right there, we can’t use it."

Haters - Check
It has really great features, it's amazing!...just not for pros - check
"Long term" rollout - check
You don't have to buy it - check
Final Cut Studio is still there for you - check (*serious omissions here)
Releasing it via App store is "marvelous" - check
Rants to Apple, oh the humanity - check

It's a groundbreaking article for sure... :P

I didn't post the article for the groundbreaking content. (there isn't any). It's the source that I find interesting. Mainstream media gets an opinion from an academy award winning editor. A lot of people posting their opinions are self proclaimed "pros". (myself included-I make my living using fcs3). But how many of us have an academy award on our shelves? My claim to fame is editing a feature that ended up on Mystery Science Theater 3000. :)

Andrew,

For every academy award winning film there are thousands of films made by deserving filmmakers all over who, though they may never win an Oscar, are just as professional, and whose work, whatever it may, is just as important to them, to their bosses, to their clients, to their collaborators, and to their mothers, as the two guys in that EW article.

The only difference between those two guys and the rest of the dissatisfied masses of FCP users is that fewer people will be calling those guys whiners and cry babies.

Looking back I probably shouldn't have referred to all of us as self-proclaimed "pros" and put it into quotation marks. It was late. My intention was to illustrate that we're all professionals - but we all have a different definition of what that means.

Whether you use FCP for weddings, broadcast spots, training web videos or academy award winning films, we're all in the same boat. We're disappointed by facets FCP-X 1.0 in one way or another and we have a decision to make. The best option for all users depends what what kind of pro you are.

Ah, so you're Andrew Wilson (XVIII)! Here I was wondering if you're Andrew Wilson (XXXI) or Andrew Wilson (XXXIII).

:-)

Seriously, when you said MST3K, you knew I was going to look it up, right?

Nice link. The point of all this is that there are a lot of perspectives, and I think his, and yours, are a great addition to the mix.

Best,
Tim

One I did got as far as the short list in 2010. Didn't make it to the nomination though. And it's foreign so it doesn't count.

Nice balanced evaluation. My favorite quote was, "..it's not better, it's constricting." (regarding using a single viewer rather than 3 monitors when you have the option).
