I just needed to get to know how to use the OS since I no longer have access to a Mac. I added my main OS drive to the dock. I have my Mac Mini connected to a TV and have the audio coming out from there. So far so good. I was able to tether my phone as modem using PDANET. After that I download FCPX . The very first time I tried to use FCPX it kept crashing/locking up. I was getting pissed to say the least. I did finally get it working OK. I have used FCPX in the past and never had it lock up like this. Rebooting did not work either. I just tried dragging different video clips into the default event folder and another event folder I created and the spinning beach-ball would not stop. I held the power switch and when the Mac Mini rebooted FCPX launched it's self. It did this several times. The beach-ball would spin every time. I was able to real quick delete the second event library just before the beach ball started spinning and things were OK after that. I can only think it was because it was the first time I launched FCPX that it had this problems. The color board is not the best but it does work. It is different but not that hard to use in my opinion. Having said that I think the GUI is the biggest pitfall of FCPX. It is better but still could use more customization. I will have more videos in about two weeks.
