without, of course, mentioning how complicit he was in the pre-release hype.

    I think Larry makes money of Apple products---training?

    Don't worry ... we'll have a different version soon. As Randy said: "This is not the end of the road ... it's just the beginning."


    Oh, and why was that video where Larry said that FCP X is "not ready for professional use" released so late? Eggs anyone?



  • klemfromseattle Calculating status...

    I spoke to Larry 3 weeks ago and he totally denied having any knowledge about the specific details of FCP X. I feel a bit duped since he's releasing a FCP X training video and obviously is in with Apple on this one. I don't so much mind however he could have played a better hand and just said he wasn't at liberty to speak about the new release and I would have understood.

    "When I was talking with Apple prior to the launch, they told me that they extensively researched the market to determine what needed to be in the new program. In retrospect, I wonder what people they were talking with."


    Which confirms my suspicion that this app has been put together by monkeys.

    I was trying to decide between Larry Jordan's training and Steve Martin's Ripple Training. If Larry is bailing, I guess I'll go with the Ripple.

    Awesome, I totally agree wtih him, and he said what needs to be said.


    I like what he said that Apple needs to do:

    1. Immediately return Final Cut Studio (3) to the market. If it is not compatible with Lion (and I don’t know whether it is or not) label it so. But put it back on store shelves so consumers have the ability to work with the existing version until FCP X is ready for prime time.

    2. Fund the development of a conversion utility – either at Apple or thru a 3rd-party – and announce the development with a tentative release date.

    3. Publicly announce a road-map for FCP X that just covers the next 3-4 months. Apple needs to be in damage control mode and the best way to defuse the situation is to communicate.  Answering the question: “What features will Apple add to FCP X, and when?” will go a long way to calming people down.

    Way to go Larry, this is what we need, and right now, but honestly I am not sure that X can really be brought into line with what profesionals need, I think that they need to make X iMovie Pro and get their ***** on making Final Cut Pro Studio 4 which is 64 Bit, and incorporates some of the better features in X, but along with everything from FCP 7.

    Well, the problem is they can release 50 new versions, but the damage has been done, and I don't see how they can repair it now.


    Sorry, should have expressed myself better ..... what I meant was that we'll have a new version of the story soon.


    Sarcasm button not working again .....
