The editing software that works best is the one you know best. I used FCP for years. I have moved on. I am now using Adobe Premier Pro.

I would like to say that I wasted my time learning FCP7. Every plugin, script and trick. Apple took everything I learned and made it worthless with the release of FCPX. I will not fall for that again. Years and years of learning and work gone, useless.

Do you trust Apple? Will they change everything again? Will they make it better or just make it different? I made the mistake of taking over the San Diego Final Cut Pro User Group the month FCPX came out. Most of the group doesn't even use FCPX. I may change the name of the group so we don't have to advertise FCPX. UCSD where we hold our meetings stopped teaching FCP7 and won't be teaching FCPX. UCSD now only has classes on AVID and Adobe. It over, FCPX is a looser.. You can wait for FCPXI but I won't.

There are lots of people on Creative Cow that make lots of money selling stuff for FCPX and I wish them good luck, their going to need it.

I would just like to make Apple feel the way I feel about their betrayal. I have some ideas. Maybe a t-shirt for NAB... developing.
