Comments and Ratings for Final Cut Pro

The Future Of Post Production (Updated to 10.3) (10.3.4)
04/06/2017 09:19:28 5/5 By SamW2011
**Updated for 10.3** I’ve been a long advocate of Final Cut Pro X for a considerable amount of time now, cutting various forms of commercial, corporate, feature and short films on it. It’s a considerable all round NLE. I started with Final Cut Pro 7 (or Classic), and moved to Premiere Pro shortly after. Had it not been for a client using FCP X I would not be using it today. This application reignited the passion I had for video editing. The way the application works and how fast you can work in it is something you won’t get anywhere else. The magnetic timeline is difficult to get your head around at first, but there is this “Ah ha!” moment that everyone goes through and once it “clicks”, you’ll never want to go back to anything else. It’s 3rd party ecosystem is rich and powerful, with plugin developers like CoreMelt, MotionVFX, Alex4D, Ripple Training and so so many more making awesome tools for FCP X that make the long, boring tasks super easy and quick. The metadata possibilities of FCP X are seemingly endless (think of it like a database with a timeline), the use of Keywords, Favourites and Rejects, Roles, are just some of the many ways to organise your media. The 10.3 update is the love letter to the professionals, the way the team have updated the app brings professional, and forward thinking tools to the hands of the editor, tools we’ve never seen before. Audio organisation using Roles, being able to swap and organise your timeline easily and quickly based upon the metadata you enter, it’s so fast you just need to try it. Now, as one customer to another, you need to learn how to use it first. If you’re reading this and you’re considering purchasing FCP X, go for the 30-day trial first on Apple’s website. It’s free and it gives you a chance to understand the software and learn how to use it. Also, use it on a job, on something that you’re going to be working on for a while to completely understand the new paradigm. Get training, watch videos, spend time to understand and grasp the new concepts. It will only improve how you edit in FCPX. On a final note, I can’t recommend FCP X enough. It’s the best NLE I have ever used and it will be for a very very long time, there is no competition.

Just gets better……... (10.3.2)
15/03/2017 09:46:20 5/5 By LukeHighLife
Let me preface this review by advising you to ignore any extremely negative reviews, FCPX will only crash and/or cause serious problems if: 1. Your runnng a cracked copy 2. You have not learnt how to use FCPX! I’m a fulltime London based shooter/editor since FCP2 was released. Like many, I was initially wary of the strange new interface and payed too much attention to the critical response FCPX got on release. Testing it out only reinforced my negative opinion - it didn’t work like FCP7 and i hated it! So I went running back to FCP7 and joined in the bitching about FCPX! Months later, after testing PP, which I disliked, and finally accepting that FCP7 was going to die, I checked out some very good, free tutorials from Izzy Hyman and tried FCPX again on a small project, and you know what? It’s actually a great app! After losing so much time to encoding all my footage to ProRes for FCP7, here was an app that could cut through H.264 native files like a hot knife through butter, that could sync up multi cam footage with a single click, that could render in the background without pushing out yet more video files to fill my drives…..I could go on and on. I run a MacPro late 2013 6 Core 32GB cylinder and FCPX is smoking on there! The speed with which i can turn around jobs now is insane. True, it does take some getting used to but once your there you will have no regrets, even the Colour Board, of which I was dubious at first, is a very powerful grading tool, and I now prefer it to the old style wheels. The onboard stabilsation software is pretty good and with a few essential plug ins you’ll be flying. I highly recommend Magic Bullet Looks, Motion VFX Morphcut, Coremelt Everything bundle and FilmConvertPro. If you only have one editing app on your Apple device it should be this one, once your up and running its unbeatable Note - I am not an Apple fanboi by any means, overpriced devices and too much focus on the phone/tablet side does leave myself and other working creatives feeling neglected but they redeemed themselves with FCPX.

Wish I had changed earlier. Great product. (10.3.2)
01/02/2017 09:48:38 5/5 By RickTorn
I have been working in video editing since the old U-matic days, progressing from multi-machine linear suites through various non-linear systems. For many years the Adobe suite has been my go to applications using AE, premiere, audition and photoshop with a multitude of plug-ins to acheive the results my clients required. In 2016 I moved into semi-retirement and closed my company but I am still kept busy with returning customers. I decided I no longer wanted to justify Adobe’s Creative Cloud subscription and purchased Final Cut Pro X along with Motion. I wish I had made this change earlier, FCP is a great product at a great price. I have paid far more for plug-ins for AE and Premiere to perform operations that are already built into FCP! FCP contains backgrounds, title templates and a whole host of transitions that I have paid extra for in the past. Motion adds the ability for a ridiculously low price to do about 90 % of operations I used AE for. Better still with motion you can an existing template or title and adapt it and add it back into FCP so that your library grows as you create. This makes Motion much faster than AE when performing everday titles that corporate production requires. Motions built in particle generator templates are great for me also when I want things like flames quickly composited into buildings etc. I am not even going to mention the wide range of sound effects that ship with FCPX as standard. These products paid for themselves with the first project. I am not an Adobe critic, their software has earned me a good living over the years and I especially loved working in AE. My work has been so intense that I have never until now had the time to step back and really play with FCP, instaed I have reached for the software that I was intimatley familiar with and I kew I could do the job with. Now in hindsight, I wish I had taken the time to really put FCP and Motion through their paces earlier. It would have speeded up my workflow and saved me a significant amount of money as I would probably not have needed Boris FX, Wondertouch, twixtor and so on.

Feature Rich and Fast! (10.3.2)
22/01/2017 09:26:47 5/5 By 3.412592654...
I want to preface that I’m not, by any means, a professional editor. For people who depend on Final Cut for their jobs, this review may not be for you. I use FCPX to edit for my youtube channel, and for what I use it for it is clear leaps and bounds ahead of iMovie. Every visual or audio effect is great, export times are blistering fast and I’m running this on a 13 inch MBP 2015 model. I’ve never found performance to be an issue with the i5 and 8GB RAM. With very large projects scrubbing through the timeline can become choppy, but it has never prevented me from finishing. Overall, I find this to be a nice, flexible, feature rich and fast editor.

Lost years of work. (10.3.1)
05/01/2017 15:52:00 1/5 By HatePlusNet
Can not update library to 10.3.1 Crashes every time.

Burn to disc has gone ! (10.3.1)
27/12/2016 13:52:00 2/5 By Grundy 2
The latest version of Final Cut pro X coupled to Sierra OS has proved a near disaster for me. It has much going for it but since i use a 6 year old Mac Book Pro lap top i have endured many problems with the various installed applications. Mail for example now continuously quits during configuration, something i have never experienced before. However by far the worst change is the inability to burn directly to disc in share ,which Apple have deemed is no longer useful. I beg to differ, storing videos on disc as apposed to other methods allows sensitive content to be passed to other parties securely and safely. I do not accept the, out of date, argument, i notice that music vynal discs are having a revival! It is the removal of burn to disc facility that is the main reason for my poor rating. I started with Snow Leopard and progressed over the years to Sierra OS and at each upgraded i had problems that had to be resolved. In fact this is the final straw, it has caused me to reconsider using Apple systems in the future. The fact that Apple did not warn customers about the burn to disc change ,indicates to me at least, that they are not concerned enough about customer satisfaction ,had i known what this latest upgrade entailed i would not have installed it.

bought this a couple of years ago and still no upgrade cost!!! (10.3.1)
14/12/2016 12:40:00 5/5 By Dio99
I wish i bought this app when it was £20 cheaper but there you go. I have tried to use iMovie for years and have not got on with it at all and only done a couple of projects. But Final cut is just great for me, I am a novice with video editing but needed something better than iMovie (it just never worked the way you wanted it to). Final cut has been on my computer for a week now and I have imported all my tape videos and head cam videos. I have made 3 projects so far and it just works. You don't even need to read the manual to use this, it is all layed out with care. I love the blade tool (i'm sure theres a way not to have to use the blade) but it is so easy and I export straight to iTunes then onto my iPad. I can understand all the pros rateing it 1 star, but they should have read the description on the Apple web page, NO one made them upgrade, also half of them probably haven't even used it to it's full so why slate a product that works right out of the box. As for the price what do they expect for £200. Well done Apple for bringing out a great app.

Very good, but version 10.3 has some unnecessary changes (10.3.1)
12/12/2016 12:55:00 3/5 By JABM31ST3R
I’d like to make something clear first: I love Final Cut Pro. I started editing with this back in 2014 and I’m very adept with the software at this point, so much so that I find myself lending a lot of advice to my friends who also like to edit videos as a hobby. It’s a great video editing software and I still highly recommend it for Mac users who want to make videos that are a step up from iMovie. That being said, the latest version has proven to be very tricky to use. Granted that it’ll probably take some getting used to before I can breeze through again, that’s par for the course with updates in general. But when it comes to editing frame by frame (which I tend to do quite often), It’s proven to be very difficult to use. Often I used to shorten clips either by dragging the edge/corner and dragging across or cutting the clip via the blade tool, but that process is now needlessly complicated due to how difficult it is to get both of those functions to work. On top of that, the decision to hide features away may be understandable since it provides a cleaner and less cluttered interface, but it makes the process of quickly zooming in on clips less accessible, something that goes hand-in hand with the points previously mentioned. I hope that these can be improved upon in future patches/updates but for now these changes seem unnecessary, which is a shame because as a whole, it’s still a great editing software.

Back to FCPX 10.2.3 (10.3)
24/11/2016 12:04:00 3/5 By Buster.K13
I have used FCP for a few years but when I updated to version 10.3 I completely lost faith and thought what have Apple done to the front face, made it more difficult to find any controls. In my opinion it’s layout is hard on your eyes. I have had to bite the bullet and revert back to version 10.2.3 Why did they not just add new items to the existing front face !!! When something works and looks good don’t change for the sake of change.

Updating from Earlier Version Messes up Libraries & Projects (10.3)
22/11/2016 00:45:00 1/5 By Wrinkly Medic
IF YOU HAVE AN EARLIER VERSION DON’T UPDATE! Have used FCP for some time and thought it very good. It somehow updated itself to v10.3 & now it is useless! It won’t close cleanly, it CRASHES! Won’t close the Library, it CRASHES! So next time you open it, the same library and project are loaded again. On opening the timeline is not always built to play or share correctly. Apple need to provide some way of Downgrading to the previous version and restoring previous libraries to their earlier state - Yes! v10.3 modifies your libraries, so they can’t be used by earlier version. Disenchanted - Hours of work unattainable now! Oh! If you click on Support, it’s just help files for a perfectly working app! No link to real ‘support’. What HAVE you done Apple???

Big Improvement but unstable (10.3)
14/11/2016 18:07:00 2/5 By jpb_uk
2 stars as this version has some nice features. Hower despite upgrading to this version, it seems to crash at every opportunity, particularly when using animated fonts. I’ve a MacPro 5,1 12-core with 9^GB memory and 3TB SSD. So its not down to a lack of power!!! Based on other reviews I’m guessing this version hasn’t undergone the usual level of rigerous testing that Apple is historically known for. Time to rollback to the previous version of FCPX and wait for news of a stable update.

My most favourite App I use. (10.3)
08/11/2016 20:23:00 5/5 By Odylih
I use many apps in order to create short films as a professional film maker. Affinity Photo, Designer, as well as all the Adobe stuff from time to time. In the end, I always come back to this app, and it’s like an old friend, welcoming me back. It’s bright, friendly interface encourages me to be ruthless with my editing choices, and to push the envelope as far as I can, not being constained by technical worries or time constraints. I’m so glad I made the switch from Premiere to FCPX years ago because the difference in experience is night and day. More creative, fast- and when you understand it’s quirks- more efficient, particularly when changes need to be made. It really is my most favourite program to use, and I only hope that an iPad version -Not iMovie- will make it’s way to iOS one day soon. In the meantime, my love letter to this joyus app is complete. May she live long and prosper!

FCP10.3 (10.3)

I love all the changes, except rendering and outputting even the simplest of projects seem to take 2 to 3 times longer than the previous version, on the same machine I’ve been using for about a year… Sadly this has seriously spoiled what was a quick slick and very user friendly program. It’s bordering on clunky now.

Fantastic, Professional - FCPX is back in the game! (10.3)
03/11/2016 23:27:00 5/5 By J23PW
For a while now, I was starting to loose faith in FCPX. It seemed to be behind the curve of Avid and Adobe and I was wandering how long I could keep using FCPX professionally before I would have to change systems. Well not for the forseeable future it would seem. The new 10.3 update has included so many great new features and genuine improvements (not your bog standard empty “Apple innovation”) that I’m fairly certian it's going to reenter the professsional market. The audio lanes are fantastic, giving the best of both the ergonomic magnetic timeline but also the organisation of dedtcated tracks. Continous playback through the browser is a much needed improvement (but that said FCPX for a long time has been the best NLE by far when it comes to media organisation). The general feel of the UI also makes it much clearer to see what you’re working with. My last project (which I cut on 10.3) felt like a whole new editing experience but without needing to relearn the key commands. While I don’t use the graphical buttons for insert, overlay and append to the timeline the addition of the overwrite graphical button (it was there before but you had to know the key command) is a promising sign that Apple are gearing FCPX towards the professional market properly. Also the loss of the “3d” feel to the UI makes it run SO MUCH FASTER! Basically, great job Apple, keep up the good work.

A Major update for professional users (10.3)
03/11/2016 20:41:00 5/5 By Guy Healey
The 10.3 release has made an already outstanding Non-Linear Editor (NLE) even better. For those coming to this app for the first time, there is naturally a learning curve which needs patience and passion, but it is so intuitive that with the help of a few hours of online tutorials (I recommend Ripple Training) anyone can be up and running on FCPX within a few days of learning and practice. I started with Final Cut Pro 6 in the Studio bundle, and, for various reasons, was using FCP7 up until two years ago - but since I made the jump to FCPX I have never looked back. It is blazingly fast, and this latest release has so many enhancements that it is head and shoulders above any of its rivals (which still bear a remarkable similarity to FCP7 and more linear than apps that are supposedly NLEs should be!) The biggest enhancement is in the audio and the way roles are now managed - but overall, pretty much everything has had a refresh - the ability to consolidate Motion Templates into Libraries means that handing off to other editors has been given a major boost. All in all, very satisfied with the update, and most of all that it signals Apple’s serious intent to support its professional community.

Feels like a new App (10.3)

The 10.3 update is huge and no matter whether you’re a professional or a hobbyist if you're interested in the very best editing experience there is you should take a look at FCPX 10.3. The performance is amazing and there is huge depth to the application for professionals of all levels yet the interface remains approachable to the novice and lets you focus on editing better than any other NLE I’ve ever used. I cannot recommend this application enough. ***** A big thanks to the ProApps team, you nailed it!

10,3 Superb (10.3)
30/10/2016 03:10:00 5/5 By ProjectOverseer
This is a very good and substantial update. Feels brand new, but familiar, and greatly improved. It only took 20 mins to find my way round the new layout and then I started to discover all the new cool stuff added. FCPX 10.3 looks a lot better - far more professional in its layout. The new Sound FX section is really cool with genuinely useful sounds. Linking to other resources is easy. My own Sound FX & Music are very easy to access and add to a project. Everything works better. Mixing codecs on the timeline i.e. jumping from my Sony FS7 to Drone footage is seamless. Grading and thired party plugins work great with only a few needing updating. Older projects loaded fine - no issues to date. I love the fact you can now browse titles and fonts on the main browser, which is a much better idea. I’m still discovering and loving this update, which has to be the best yet from Apple - I’m impressed :-) Only one wish - unless I’ve missed it. To be able to alter volume levels at any point across a selected sound i.e. if I want sound levels to climb or lower on a background music track if narration is used. I know there’s ways round this, but to be able to pick a point on the wave form and manipulate it instantly on the timeline would be awesome. Otherwise, superb update!

FCPX - I’m coming back! (10.3)
28/10/2016 15:21:00 5/5 By Finn Sims
I’d just started migrating my post workflow to Adobe CC from FCPX due to fustrations and limitations that really made the previous version of FCPXfeel very un-pro like. This upgrade has definitely closed the gap and it feels like a substantial, much needed upgrade that will hopefully solve a lot of the problems experienced in the past. It's a sexy piece of software, too and the usablity is unrivalled. I can work faster and more efficiently compared to Adobe PP and previous FCPX verisons. If only Apple would be more transparent with their pro market… Could have saved me a year subscription to Adobe CC!

Oh Dear ! (10.3)
28/10/2016 13:14:00 5/5 By alexjenks57
Why oh why didnt I move over to FCP X sooner ??? I was fcp7 user for years and couldnt understand why it should be changed…only just purchased fcp x 2 weeks ago, what a revelation, easy to navigate, easy to use and it works straight out of the tin…people stop bitchin and start using, its great !

A fantastic update to FCPX (10.3)
28/10/2016 10:05:00 5/5 By SteveC99
The 10.3 update is so substantial they coould have called it FCP XI, there are so many improvements it’s hard to know where to start! The new UI looks great, is very fast with a noticeable difference in performance on all my systems and it’s fully customisable. The new audio features, in my opinion, put it above all other NLEs for audio functionality. The new “Flow” transition is going to be very useful and I’m looking forward to trying out the new “Touch Bar” features when I get the new MacBook Pro. If you haven’t tried FCPX before or if you haven’t tried it for a while I would thoroughly recommend you look at 10.3

Great editor for the price (10.2.3)
21/09/2016 10:43:00 5/5 By Amatis films
I used FCP7 for many years, then tried FCPX when it first came out. First reaction was negative and went back to FCP7. When the first upgrade to FCPX came I tried again and this time persevered with it and now love it. It’s a great all round edit suite with great plugins available and lots of excellent tools available as standard. Yes it takes time to get used to if you have been editing with Premiere or FCP7 for a long time, but I wouldn’t go back now as I find it very fast to use and the background rendering is fantastic. I used to have to have enforced coffee breaks with FCP7 whilst it rendered, now I have to force myself to take a break. Would recommend FCPX to anyone who wants a good all round editor that’s fast and covers most types of work. Only caveat would be that it needs a powerful Mac to really run smoothly and take best advantage of it’s speed.

It’s okay at best... (10.2.3)

Final Cut Pro X was a truly disappointing experience when it first came out in 2011. It was a glitchy mess that couldn’t handle the slights task. Constantly crashing, corrupting files, and rejected the predecessors projects, and plug-ins.

 Over time it has slowly and I mean painfully slowly improved itself, but I would say the latest version which is the best yet (which isn’t saying much) is still a glitchy, buggy, crash-tacular mess. I know you maybe think “Surely this is just your machine”, sadly no, I have have multiple machines for different jobs, and Final Cut Pro X handles like a Ferrari on ice, it’s amazingly powerful but will it do what you tell it? Most likely not.

 When it does work, it’s a joy, simpler tan Adobe Premiere Pro, cheaper, and a fair friendlier overall experience, but when it crashes and corrupts your work, that good will it just built up goes out the window along with your computer monitor. 

 If you have the dosh, and technical know-how Adobe is your man, if you need something easier, that can still get professional results, then Final Cut Pro X is your man, just beware of all the crashing…so much crashing!



Great investment (10.2.3)
20/07/2016 20:21:00 5/5 By KugaUK
I make a living off editing, so I depend on a fast, reliable, flexible software suite like FCPX, Motion and Compressor. I’ve made 125 videos in the past 21 weeks (that averages to more than 1 per working day), and I’ve covered all sorts of content, different shapes and sizes. I simply couldn’t do it without FCPX, none of the others (Premiere, Vegas, Avid) allowed me to work so fast and so easily. I’ve even got my wife trained on it! Easily worth its price tag, and then some. Just bring us some key framed colour corrections and audio roles please.

Raw in FCPX for Blackmagic camera plssssss (10.2.3)
30/05/2016 17:03:00 2/5 By Ebis500
i would have given 5 star but no, until RAW capability in fcpx for all Blackmagic cameras is add. am tired of round trip from fcpx to other editing programme . until then you get 2 stars from me thanks. angry BMD user.

So easy to use and much more user friendly than most (10.2.3)
06/05/2016 16:31:00 5/5 By Leigh Green
This latest update has really wiped the floor with any other piece of editing software of it’s class in my opinion. As for the GUI it does at first look a little childish, but the whole system is very effective, efficient and the ease of use is through the roof. I knew if I held out a few versions to upgrade from FCP7 i’d be so much more impressed with it overall. Well done Apple FCP team!

Superb! (10.2.3)
04/04/2016 03:46:00 5/5 By ProjectOverseer
This version of FCPX is the best yet … a few glitches from previous versions have now gone. All the third party plugins I’ve bought, including LUT tools work seemlessly. FCPX;s Colour chart makes for easy grading - even my S-Log3 files look beautiful once graded. Thired party intergration of Rec709 support is awesome too - its even possible to create your own LUTS now. Canon & Sony support is now impressive … well done Apple!

Great editor (10.2.3)
23/03/2016 21:36:00 5/5 By scoobsoriginal
FCP X is a great tool for getting edits done quickly and efficiently. It may not have the colour correction abilities of Resolve but to cut and assemble a project qickly it’s probably unbeatlabl I just hope it doesn’t go the way of Apple Aperture which did for photos what FCP does for video and gets abandoned for no geed reason. FCP X doesnt seem to be in the space Apple seems to want to be in now. Use it while you can…

The future of post production (10.2.3)
05/02/2016 03:09:00 5/5 By SamW2011
I’ve been using Final Cut Pro X for a considerable amount of time now, using it on commercial, coporate and now feature film work, it seriously is an all rounder. I started with Final Cut Pro 7 and moved to Premiere shortly after, had it not been for a client using X, I doubt I’d be here now. This program has seriously reinvigorated my passion for video editing. It’s 3rd party ecosystem is extensive and rich, and it’s tight integration with Motion means you can create your own titles, effects and transitions with ease. It takes time to learn, it’s a vastly different way of doing things, but with the magnetic timeline, keyword and smart collections, you won’t be able to go back to a traditional NLE. P.S. There is a trial on Apple’s website for 30 days, I would recommend downloading that before deciding to make a purchase! :)

FCPX is good but has Issues for the Working user (10.2.2)
24/12/2015 22:58:00 3/5 By RealSting
UPDATED: Final Cut Pro X is losing stars!! As good as Final Cut is, El Capitan and FCPX are not quite fully compatible. Apple after 3 months STILL have not addressed the corrupted Timecode Window which is becoming very annoying.. Admittedly it is not a huge issue but when you consider I’ve spent thousands on a L2013 Mac Pro and on outboard equipment just so that I could have a ‘proper’ post system. Apple are still some way behind on the audio as it does not rival FCP 7’s track based audio.. no mixer control !!! As much as I like FCPX the slow down of any significant updates, I’m feeling uneasy about its future. For overall productivity, it still does not rival LightWorks which is pretty much the film industry's standard.. which FCPX could have become.
