2.0 out of 5 stars Burdensome interface April 4, 2011
I have been a Mac fanatic for years, and have been with FCP since v1.0. For the record, I am currently editing a series of complex one-hour docs now, one of them with FCP and another on Premiere, and am a corporate trainer on FCP. No editing package is perfect, and I can produce a perfectly good rant about Premiere's deficiencies, but on the balance I don't like working on FCP. (For the benefit of the Mac police, Windows 7 has been rock-solid, as much as I dislike working with it.)

To me, editing a complex project is like playing chess. When I am releasing the mouse button I am already thinking several moves ahead. With FCP, however, you have to hover over each edit. I can never quite get on a good creative roll because I am constantly diverted by having to manually perform some niggling little task that other editors do automatically, and the three-point editing model here practically demands you treat it like a linear editor. All the little things that you need automated aren't and all the big things you don't want are. The constant weight of little distractions makes for a long editing day.

Even if you disagree with everything I've said - which is fine, we all work differently - no serious editor can deny that FCP's browser is, well, terrible. Media management is a pain. It's inconceivable that the v1 browser is still with us. There is no icon view with comments, a miserable icon list view, icons do not automatically or conveniently arrange themselves (and when they do long file names prevent a clean arrangement), folders are poorly designed, long file names do not wrap or abbreviate, there is no indication if a clip has been used on the timeline.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great and getting better each new release... May 22, 2010
Complete video editing suite. Editing, Motion Graphics, Color Correction, Compression, Sound Recording and editing DVD authoring.

Some of these are simple to learn. I found Final Cut editing to be easy to use. Most of this is difficult to learn, but powerful to implement. Buy the PeachTree Apple Certification books.

I am not an expert at this. Here is what I found.

The Color suite is more Unix based and does not use the Apple file system, so if you have multiple hard drives and don't know UNIX well, you might have a hard time finding your files. I have 18 drives hooked up to my machine. I gave up and tabled further study until later. Next time I'll move the files over to my scratch disk with Finder and work on project entirely there. I was disappointed the new version did not fix this. It looks like a Unix program, not a clean looking Apple interface. Truthfully, I did not put much time into Color. I've seen professional demonstrations, and wish I recorded them. Those guys make it look so easy.

I found the sound editing package worked well, shifting between time and frequency domains made it easy to edit out pops of sound, mic thuds, etc. However, I could not re-import into Final Cut. More study needed.

The shear number of video formats will melt your brain. I might have to take a course on that. I wish it was more simple. Frankly I don't understand much of that. Pro Res 422 is a common format, but there are also iPod formats, SD formats, ok the number of formats is around 30 or so. That is a lot of different formats. Someone explain what they all are used for, and give me a way to blank out the non-US formats.

Motion graphics seemed somewhat easy to use, with a book for a study guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome product! April 23, 2011
Verified Purchase
If you are serious about video editing and you are a Mac user, you need not look any further than this package. This is great for the professional video editor/producer as well as the hobbyist. Like any sophisticated software package, there is a bit of a learning curve but once you understand some basic principles, the whole package works together beautifully. THe great thing about this package is that anyone can have the same tools the big boys do to produce professional quality productions. I highly recommended it. If you don't have a Mac computer, this is a great reason to make the switch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Final Cut Studio, great program December 7, 2010

This pack is great! And way cheaper on Amazon.

My only gripe is that you can't just buy Final Cut Pro by itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for making amateur videos September 13, 2010
Verified Purchase
I'm still learning more about this product every day, but for a novice it's definitely usable. Great for making videos (if you make a lot of videos); I use it for work and I'm able to send clients videos that I make using this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Avid! May 13, 2010
I am amazed that there are only four reviews for FCS on Amazon. This is by far the best video editing suit available, especially for the price. Its only competitor is Avid which costs double and both programs are very similar but each one excelling in different areas. Final Cut Studio is the best money you can spend on editing software, besides a class to learn how to use it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential March 16, 2011
Verified Purchase
I am the owner of a production company, JVW inc, that uses Final Cut exclusively. I am also the executive producer of Forged, an award winning feature film edited on Final Cut. Final Cut is essential for any professional filmmaker or editor. Any amateur editor using Final Cut Pro will significantly improve their craft. Final Cut Pro is the most impressive and valuable piece of software I have ever used. If you are serious about film you need to own this. Final Cut Pro is the most important achievement in cinema since Louis Le Prince developed the first movie camera.
