Hi Jerry,
I went through a similar kind of switch a while back. I had used MC and FCP 7 for over 21 years. No looking back now:)
A few things to remember
-Unlearn whatever you know about NLEs (track based NLEs like PrPro, FCP 7 or MC)
-DO NOT try to make FCP X work like FCP 7/PrPro etc. It is a completely different way of editing on a NLE.
-Stop hitting command S to save every few minutes (you don't have to:)
-This is one NLE for which you NEED a tutorial.
It is going to be frustrating for a while and then you'll get it. And then you'll wonder why you waited this long to make the switch:)
I bought Ripple Training's tutorials. There is a popular free one. I think it's called Izzy's. But I am super happy with Ripple:)
I've completely stopped using FCP 7 and MC foe over 2 years now. I still use PrPro CC for a particular client where I need tracks. For everything else, FCPX:) It's a super fast and fun NLE to use.
And there are some really cool plugins for X.
Stick with it, you'll love it.
