This review is to warn prospective consumers of the mistake that I made in purchasing the academic version. You see, Apple requires the registration of this product and because it is an academic version is not allowed to be sold. If you purchase the academic version and it has been installed on a machine previously, you are out of luck. I called Apple to get the software re-activated since the original owner had uninstalled the software but no such luck. The policy is plainly stated on Apple's documentation. Just do a search on this and you will find others who have had the same experience. Further, for those who purchased a brand new and unopened copy, be aware that there are only two activation for this product by the registered owner. You can install it on two pc's but they cannot be used at the same time. You see the software will actually check your network to see if the software being used by another pc. So, now, I won't be able to really know how this program works until I get an unused copy or a retail version. I will be looking for a retail version so that in the future I may sell it when I am done with it. At this time I have an expensive set of coasters that are useless and a set of books that won't be of use to me. This kind of thing just makes me want to switch to Windows. I hope that this reviews saves others the headaches and financial loss that I went through.

Although this is the ACADEMIC Version, (IMO) it does the exact samething. It's an older version, I don't need any updates, that's what google is for. All of FCP pretty much works the same except FCP X which is made for everyone. This software works great with my Powermac G5 2.7GHz Dual 10.5.8 Leopard. Came with tutorials which is great! I recommend it!!!

This is the top of the line software to purchase. Definitely the industry standard and for good reason. I recommend Final Cut Studio 2 to anyone wanting to learn to work with film and multimedia.

Absolutely love this product! Steep learning curve for newbies, but it remains an essential tool for this "Weekend Warrior", if you are a fan of the P2 workflow,and don't intend on tying up your camera: ( SL) is not an option for certain express card adapters, (at least not at this point in time.) Take heed.
Duel Adapter ExpressCard 34 to PCMCIA PC Card and CardBus Reader-Writer for Panasonic P2 card 3G/ATA/cellular/aircard/wireless LAN/modem cards. NOTE: Please check the compatible list before purchase. NOT for Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard or WIN 7

Final Cut Pro can take me from project planning to a fabulous looking DVD that showcases the production that I shot and edited. With programs for editing, special effects, sound design, color correction, DVD authoring, and more, FCP for me is like a bat and glove for a baseball player.

Final cut Studio is a lot of pro apps it is also one master program Final cut pro and all the rest supporting it. One more thing the suite integration is the only positive difference and this is really only an issue for the outdated NLE dinosaurs who have hard time thinking in a different manor, you don't have to export video or sound files from your supporting programs. For example you can create type or graphic in motion and/or livetype & color or a sound file in Soundtrack Pro and just do a command S and import those programs project files right into Final Cut and save yourself a lot of render time.
Now for the UI debate as being one who trains new editors on Final Cut, I often have deal with two types of users the new ones who have never used a NLE system and the old Premiere and Avid users. For the New users they seem to feel that Final Cut has a semi intuitive interface that you can adjust to their preference. Where as the older users from Avid feel that the interface is cumbersome, the reason behind this is mainly where one group tends to be open minded where as the other tends to have issues letting go of the fact that Avid Interface and the old Premiere interface. To those users are unwilling to accept the fact that there old ways of using interface just seems outdated compared to Final cut and new CS4 Premiere. now the suite does have two shortcomings compressor and DVD studio Pro. Compressor just does not have enough Variation to support the different file formats I would suggest you purchase telestreams Episode Encoder to make up for compressors shortcomings. Now the issue with DVD studio Pro is not a lack of features it is more a lack compatibility with the DVD Houses. To overcome this issue I would suggest Adobe Encore CS4 which you can only get with Premiere Pro CS4 or a corresponding Creative Suite( Master or Production Premium). even those 2 defects it is still a very decent package well worth the cost.

I love Final Cut Pro. As a journalist trying to create multimedia stories, it's incredibly valuable in helping me layer audio and video to put together cohesive pieces.

However. This is a complicated, professional product that was difficult for me as a beginner, trying to self-teach myself from the ground up. I found the multi-volumed manuals to be dense and confusing. I ended up buying a lesson guide with dvd to get started, which has helped me immensely.

I have no previous experience with editing, so I really can't compare it with another product. The user manuals that came with the series were overwhelming and practically useless to me. However, I have managed to learn to use the suite with the help of the Apple Pro training series and Lynda.com. I think it is a great product for those who have the patience and determination to learn it.
