    Thanks Mark for helping me with your 'this helped me'. I feel I do not deserve it. I am just becoming curious to see what kind of video you are preparing on your brand new FCPX. BTW this expertise of yours has made me to laugh:

     

     

    '.I have worked on more that 20 big audio and video softwares besides playing  with a thousand more being a music composer,arranger,programmer, sound recordist and an editor on widows as well'!

    Ha Ha Ha Ha.....Windows sorry..... people agree to everything here without understanding..

  • somanna Level 1 (110 points)

    Ahem!

     

    Is the latter part of your reply

     

    'people agree to everything here without understanding.. '

     

     

    directed to that very helpful and knowledgeable and innocent member dwelling in Iceland?

    ? ?

    Are you also yet without understanding? [Mtth 15:16]

     

    In describing his video editing experience, Mark had described thus:

     

     

    '.I have worked on more that 20 big audio and video softwares besides playing  with a thousand more being a music composer,arranger,programmer, sound recordist and an editor on widows as well'!

     

    I had then jocularly questioned the nature of the editing works he performs on widows to which he gave the following reply:

     

    Ha Ha Ha Ha.....Windows sorry..... people agree to everything here without understanding..

     

    Reading this reply and also the communication between you and Denden 1, I felt that the first part of Mark's reply [Ha Ha Ha Ha.....Windows sorry..] was a response to my questioning of the nature of his experience in editing widows, and that the latter part of his reply [people agree to everything here without understanding..] was directed [I suspect] at you!

     

    Now do you understand!

    I can't believe I just read all of this.  But it was like a train wreck, you can't stop looking.

  • somanna Level 1 (110 points)

    Your patience and intensity to know about FCPX is admirable. Why not go for a trial version of FCPX yourself to know whether FCPX is like a train wreck or just only this thread!

    You have to reset your mind and face the fact that Final Cut was discontinued. What you are using as FCPX is actually iMovieX. Once you do this, you can start loving the good new features and hating the bad ones as with any new software. But to compare this iMovieX to the good old FCP will only bring more pain to the adaptation process. (By the way, Apple, to kill FCP is unforgivable).

  • innocentius Level 4 (1,880 points)

    Yawn zzzzzzzz

    The legacy FCP was untenable. It's code base was from Mac OS 8. It had to go.

    Despite the Final Cut groupies that try to slam your post, I agree that you are absolutely right regarding almost everything you say.  I run a small production company and teach media production, and as such I have 14 iMacs with Final Cut X and a dual boot Windows 7 setup so I can use Adobe products the way they were intended to be used -- in Windows.  I have all but abandoned Final Cut.  It is the most un-intuitive program I've ever used, and that's saying a lot. I have a couple of employees who still use Final Cut, but most of my employees and students have switched over to Premiere Pro CC.  I agree that the magnetic snapping is one of the stupidest editing features ever invented (yes, I know you can press "p" and it inserts a black clip when you move something -- but why the heck would I want a black clip inserted??) .  Why not just have a "ripple delete" command like Premiere has -- available when you need it?  The real problem, though, is that it presumes to know what you want to do, and does it without your permission.  In Premiere, I am the decision maker.   I have passed the point where I care about how much I spent on Final Cut.  I can't waste one more editing session trying to make it do what I want it to. 

  • Tom Wolsky Level 10 (115,600 points)

    Magnetic snapping is the best feature in FCP. Ripple delete is the default behavior in FCP in the magnetic timeline.

     

    So you came to this forum to say you don't like FCP. Sorry I can't be bother to go to the Adobe forum to say that Premiere is overrated, overcomplicated, overbuttoned, overpaneled, overdone piece of crap trying to be a piece of software for everybody and ending up being a non-sensical, unfocused, pile of steaming turd that's pretending to be software from the 80s.
