Comments and Ratings for Final Cut Pro

Keeps Crashing!! (10.3.2)
2/12/2017 8:38:00 AM 3/5 By TimAnnaKidwell
I love using FCP! It’s way better than iMovie and it’s so convient when it comes to editing my Vlogs! The ONLY problem that I do keep having is that it crashes all of the time! Atleast 5x a day it crashes and I get a notification on my screen saying stuff I don’t understand. Everytime I send it to Apple, I haven’t recieved any info about why it’s doing that. Can anyone help me?

It’s a solid video editor (10.3.2)
2/11/2017 4:31:00 PM 5/5 By Fhhowdy
I work in an environment where I get to consistently utilize FCPX, Premiere and Resolve. This is by far my favorite editor, due to the simplicity of the interface. Sure, there are tasks which FCPX has really got to improve on, but that doesn’t sway my preference for FCPX for my normal projects (documentaries, small multicam projects with no more than 4 angles, quick video shorts). Here are the pros from my perspective: * Very responsive editor * Relatively easy to learn. There are a ton of resources out there (Ripple, for example). * Great integration with Motion (learning curve is a littler easier than Premiere/AE, in my opinion) * The power of FCPX/Compressor is simply outstanding. The export speeds are great, too. * The power of roles for video/audio can’t be overstated. This is especially true when working with multiple people on a project. * There is a LOT of power in the audio interface within FCPX. The power is enough to keep me out of external daws on most projects, which is fortunate given the lack of integration options… * The number and quality of 3rd party interfaces is a awesome. I could list them, but that probably violates a review condition somewhere… * I don’t think the FCPX devs get enough credit with respect to the power needed to complete a video project with the program. It’s the only one I can use reliably on a macbook air. Most of my editing is done on a MacBook Pro, but the air option is great when I need to use my MBP for another task. * Price — as long as they stay with the current price and avoid a yearly subscription plan, it’s really hard to argue that there is any other app that can compete with it at its price point. Most users can get away without any 3rd party apps, but they are still there for those of us who need the extra capability. Here are the cons from my perspective: * Inability to map controls to **easily** map controls/commands to an external control interface * Lack of **native** integration with logic. I use another daw as my primary, but logic is extremely powerfull, and with the great job the devs did with integrating with other apple products (motion/compressor), why can’t they get this right? These first two bullets are my primary wish lists of enhancements. * reliability — there are way too many crashes. this is especially true when you have any type of audio adjustments applied to a multi-cam clip and do a lot of panning * Lack of program defaults. FCPX changed the project defaults to show the entire waveform — not my preference. There are other things which I do to EVERY project — just to set them up. (adding custom roles for audio/video being one). They could cut my setup time by 90% if they’d expand this. * FCPX can be a pain to use when needing to do lots of color corrections or noise reduction (video noise — not sound). There are third party solutions out there, but I don’t have to go 3rd party with my other editors. * Why are the window controls for playback on the video preview screen? If you’re using this on a multi-monitor setup without using keyboard shortcuts, it’s a royal pain. Most of the edits are done on the timeline, so you have to consistenly jump between monitors. Make it so we can dock it where we want it.

10.3 Ruined Everything and 10.3.1 doesnt help. (10.3.2)
2/11/2017 8:56:00 AM 1/5 By VegRob
UPDATE: 10.3.2 STILL DOES NOTHING TO FIX THE LIBRARY UPDATE PROBLEMS. I’m done with Apple. If I could, I’d ask for my money back on this app because for all the years I used it as my sole editor I now can’t access over 5 years of client work and just lost money because of it. A client needed an old video re-edited for a new use, and I had to tell him I’m locked out of my library because Apple doesn’t know how to fix known issues. UPDATE: The 10.3.1 patch promised a fix to the issues with libraries updating. I downloaded it immediately, in hopes I could get back to my working files, but it seems they haven’t fully figured out the issue yet because I’m still getting errors when trying to update libraries that had always been useable and accessible from my Drobo. This is completely unacceptable. Apple has fallen very far from the company they used to be. I’ve been with FCPX since the first version. I’ve stood by it while others migrated to other NLEs. I upgraded the software to 10.3 today, expecting the usual Library update process to follow before getting to work. All of my work is stored on a Drobo RAID system. The Library update gets to 90% and quits due to an error. 8 years of client projects are now locked and completely unavailable to me! Thanks, Apple! FIX IT! Oh, I forgot to mention, one of those projects that I now cannot access is actually a live job, and the client is expecting updates soon. If this doens’t get sorted and I can’t access my files soon I’ll never open this software again and I’ll migrate to a new NLE.

Worth the Money! (10.3.2)
2/6/2017 9:47:00 AM 5/5 By Jimbob T
FCPX is a great investment! You can do all kinds of things with it, and make video up to 5K quality at 60fps! I use it on a 2010 Macbook Pro, and it still functions very well. It costs only $300 and is worth every penny; it does almost as much as Adobe Premiere Pro, which costs more than twice as much. If you've used iMovie for any amount of time, you'll be able to catch on to Final Cut Pro very quickly. It has the same style of editing with many more transitions, effects, and titles, as well as many more features. P.S. Many people say that the new update is low quality; however, it's just structured differently. You can get used to it easily.

UNSTABLE, no longer useful! (10.3.2)
2/5/2017 3:47:00 PM 2/5 By PPO2_1.4
My entire workflow was in FCPX… looks like I may have to switch to Adobe now. This is what I get multiple times a day: ———— Crashed Thread: 0 Dispatch queue: com.apple.main-thread Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV) Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x0000462a8180bec0 Exception Note: EXC_CORPSE_NOTIFY Termination Signal: Segmentation fault: 11 Termination Reason: Namespace SIGNAL, Code 0xb Terminating Process: exc handler [0] ———— IN ENGLISH: This program crashes several times a day, often dumping my work with it! This is on a fresh OSX 10.12.3 install, with a fresh boot and no other significant programs running. Reliability is KEY when I’m using my machine to support my living and passions… and FCPX is a bit short on it it seems. Stay away!

Do not Buy!!!! I REPEAT…DO NOT BUY (10.3.2)
1/27/2017 1:58:00 AM 1/5 By DrewforDrew
I am beyond disappointed! I spent months working and saving money for this software, and all it does is crash and waste space. I honestly wish i could get my money back because this was garbage. for the amount of money it cost, you would think you wouldnt have a problem with it. Fuh.. Back to freaking iMovie i go ….

A great NLE coming into its own (10.3.2)
1/24/2017 1:29:00 PM 4/5 By Jrwhite8
Put the bungled release of Final Cut Pro X behind you. Was it introduced too hastily and without a clear migration path from past versions of Final Cut Pro? Yes. But let’s looks at the application for what it is, especially now after over a dozen (free!) updates over the last few years. During every stage of your workflow, FCPX gets out of your way and let’s you get to the art of editing. - It’s blazingly fast. 64-bit, multithreaded, OpenCL GPU-accelerated, and boasts a resolution independent timeline (6K+ footage? no problem!). It screams. - Native support for RED footage, Sony XAVC, H.264, AVC, MXF, etc. Built-in controls to toggle LUTS on Arri, Blackmagic, Sony, Panasonic & Canon footage. (And FCPX contains, hands down, the best RED workflow of any NLE). - Simply the best multicam tools of any NLE. Mix formats and frame rates; sync by timecode, audio waveform, or camera date/time, and easily manually adjust in the Angle Editor. - Amazingly powerful metadata and search tools that allow you to quickly log hundreds of hours of footage with ease. Keyword collections are more powerful than bins: think of them like labels in Gmail, so footage can exist in more than one Keyword Collection, if appropriate. Range-based keywords allow you to label just a section of a clip (a more powerful and flexible form of subclipping), especially great for docu work. Smart Collections allow for saved searches that update automatically. - The magnetic timeline is actually one of my favorite features. Basically, by default your editing tools are set to ripple; there’s a Position tool that reverts back to FCP7 behavior. But the strength of the magnetic timeline is that you don’t have to think about tracks and gaps and clip collisions and can just get to the art of editing. Come to it with an open mind, and I think you’ll come to see the myriad benefits. - An incredibly flexible audio workflow with Roles. No more fussing with patching tracks. Now you can easily visually organize your audio by dialogue, effects music, etc. It automatically recognize siXML data from sound files to label and organize subroles (specific microphones/characters) on import. Using a product like XtoPro, you can easily output an AAF for ProTools with all of the audio organized intro tracks by their Roles. And you can now use compound clips to apply effects, make volume adjustments, etc. to an entire Role (think an audio bus). - Auditions let you combine multiple takes into a single clip and switch between them, even if they’re different durations. Really handy for narrowing down that best take. - Compound Clips are a way of nesting that can be used to clean up a timeline, group a section of clips, or easily create a graphic that will be used over and over again. - Background rendering! No more staring at that blue render bar before you can play anything. - Built-in "PluralEyes"; sync clips with scratch track audio automatically. - RGB color grading with ColorSync (and with a new Macbook Pro or Mac Pro with HDMI out, the ability to have broadcast out without additional hardware). - Powerful XML support for third party application integration. Has the best DaVinci Resolve integration of any NLE. - The ability to save and apply a bunch of different filters and effects, including any settings changed, as an Effects Preset – this is very powerful. - A powerful 3D titler that offers nearly unlimited customization with better playback/performance than many other similar motion graphics applications. Libraries are a huge improvement in media management and project organization; essentially a combination of a classic FCP project file and an (optional) project-specific “capture scratch.” SAN and NAS support is much improved. Libraries make organizing your media, collaborating with other editors, and archiving drop dead simple. FCPX works far better in collaborative workflows than FCP7 did. All that being said, I do have suggestions, but my list of gripes gets shorter with each release. I’d love to see the following: - Better audio mixing tools (master fader, keyframe recording). - Batch export a group of clips from the Browser (would be a great dailies workflow). - Tabs in the timeline. - The ability to lock a Clip/Storyline in time, or lock an entire Project. - Out-of-sync indicators, and the ability to re-connect audio to its video (without having to use compound clips). - True Motion roundtripping (“Send to Motion” from the timeline, and the ability to add a Motion project to the timeline). - A motion tracker for secondary color corrections, titles, etc. (add Motion’s tracker into FCPX). - Add a keyboard shortcut for moving a selected connected clip above or below other connected clips/storylines in the timeline. - Add a keyboard shortcut to set the clip connection point to current playhead/skimmer position (cmd-opt-click, but without using the mouse). - Duplicate detection in the timeline. - The ability to select a clip in the Browser, then reveal affiliated clips from it in the timeline. - Keyframeable color corrections. - The ability to copy and paste variable retiming attributes. - The ability to add a clip from the timeline to an Audition. - The ability to slip a clip one/10 frames at a time without using the mouse. - When selecting a clip in the timeline and choosing “Reveal in Browser”, if that clip exists in the currently selected keyword collection, it should keep me in that keyword collection instead of popping out to the root of the Event. - More granular metadata search in the Timeline Index. I would love to see these implemented. But the app as it currently stands is just as powerful as FCP7, and in many cases it’s lightyears beyond it. While it’s not perfect (no NLE is), I truly think this is the future of editing, and the 10.3 update seems to lay the foundation for further improvements and feature additions.

Running Great, Good Features (10.3.2)
1/22/2017 7:17:00 PM 5/5 By jmbennett357
I didn’t use FCP X for many years because it didn’t seem professional enough for my needs, but I decided to use it after I saw how much far and ahead it utilizes the iMac and MBP hardware compared to Premiere Pro CC. So glad I made the jump! Effortlessly editing a 1.5 hour long movie on it with a the late 2015 iMac, adding lots of LUTs / effects, and it’s running great and has professional features for me to utilize. It can take a little getting used because it’s a different non-linear editor than most, but once you get the hang of it it’s great. If you want a professional video editing software that is continually getting better and utilizes your Apple hardware more than any other non-linear editor, then I think you’ll be happy with your purchase.

Very professional ! (10.3.2)
1/20/2017 1:08:00 PM 5/5 By isabella borgos
the final cut pro app is awesome ! it has all of the tools you could possibly use to form a real comercial or even tv show ! i would highly recomend !

Better, but... (10.3.2)
1/19/2017 10:09:00 PM 2/5 By NudgeyBear5567
Yeah sure you fixed the audio meter issue, yay, but the events still go back to alphabetical organization when Final Cut is relaunched, and yes, I did save my workspace. Come on guys, you’re so close. -DaSamNudge

10.3.1 CONSTANLY CRASHES!!! (10.3.1)
1/19/2017 12:07:00 PM 1/5 By laspotts7
(Mid-2015 MacBook Pro, i7, 16GB DDR3, 500GB Mac HDD) I’ve been using FCPX for well over a year now & it has been fantastic UNTIL I updated to the latest 10.3.1 version. I have had a ton of issues with it lagging, crashing, getting stuck exporting video, & a few other issues to include freezing my entire computer. As a YouTuber, it has drastically slowed down my work flow & there have been 2 cases within the first week of updating where I had to force shutdown & reboot my MacBook. In addition to those major issues, I do not find the new layout to be more intuitive, in fact, it’s the opposite. I cannot recommend updating unile Apple sorts these issues out. Read the other reviews, we all can’t be wrong. Update at your own risk. I should have waited.

FCP CURRENT VERISON EPIC FAIL (10.3.1)
1/16/2017 10:53:00 PM 1/5 By RDScally
I’ve been using Final Cut for some time and spent a lot of time learning it. That was apparently a waste. I bought a new computer, migreted everything successfully and then updated FCP. It now crashed upon start up and retsalling and retalling and reinstalling doesn’t help. Looks like I’ll be learning Adobe Premier, which on my test runs looks like a much better program. It’s too bad. I though FCP was useful for my purposes without being overly complex. Apple wanted to kill this product, I’ve heard and I guess now they’ve found a way.

1/15/2017 4:37:00 PM 3/5 By Joshuae50
My girlfriend and i got final cut pro x to edit videos. this was a huge dissapointment due to it crashing, and randomly switching products. i don't know whats going on with apples software workers but they need to get their stuff together and make $299.99 worth it!

The new update needs a slight fix... (10.3.1)
1/11/2017 5:25:00 PM 3/5 By Ronnirockout
It’s not as bad as people are saying it is (they’re very indiviual problems), but the flow transition isn’t working. It worked for a solid 10 minutes, then stopped. Like, if I edit the ones that are still working, they’ll become a different type of cross disolve. It’s very annoying and should be fixed. I’ve tried everything to fix it but it won’t work.

I’ve used FCP 7 for years and love it. I switched over to Premiere, but then I was asked by my company to use FCPx. It’s terrible! It really is iMovie which is okay for making quick videos on your iPhone, but to really edit a film. Jebus! Terrible - come on Apple?! Seems like a pretty genius scam to charge $300 for a “super charged” version of iMovie and one that is not even as good as iMovie.

Working great so far on 2016 15” MBP with touchbar! (10.3.1)

I used to be a FCP user some 10+ years ago, then switched to Adobe Premiere, and now after a long hiatus have come back to using FCPX full time and it has been a great decision so far. I’m sure it helps to have a current and adequately powerful mac, but I do like what FCPX has become. While some have said that FCPX has been “dumbed down” from what it used to be, I see it as more of a natural evolution. FCPX is easier to use than ever, and easier than I remember the old version to be, and…. it just works! It’s almost as easy to use as iMovie and despite my long departure from using this NLE platform, jumping back in did not require me to consult and documentation or tutorials to be able to harness the power of this application - it’s that easy to use. It’s like getting back on a bike again. Perhaps some of the “dumbed down” stigma can attributed to how simple it is to use, but I honestly feel that something doesn’t have to be complicated to use and learn just to be powerful and “pro level”. This is undoubtedly as professional as any of NLE suites I’ve used. No it does not handle CinemaDNG files natively, but that doesn’t apply to me nor does it to 95%+ of the intended user base. So far it’s been running stable on my 2016 15” MBP with touchbar and I’ve already done quite a few projects. If I had to have one complaint it would have to be that the timeline scrubber on the touchbar for FCPX is not as practical and useful as I envisioned it to be. I’m not going to ding the app for this shortcoming because this may be more of an inherent characteristic of Apple’s design of the touchbar itself. If there is room for improvement of touchbar functionality with FCPX in the future, I don’t know what that would really be at the moment, so the complaints will stop here.

The update broke it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (10.3.1)

Ever since the latest update, FCP hangs, freezes, and is totally unusable. Everything was fine until they update it. We use external drives to store all of our media and libraries. FCP won’t even open a project or library now without the spinning wheel of death. I’ve waited on the wheel for hours, and nothing happens. I’d advise everyone to not update, or wait to buy it until they fix it with an update. TOTALLY UNUSABLE.

Final Cut 10.3.1 = Useless (10.3.1)
1/3/2017 2:49:00 AM 1/5 By US ArmyHAWK
I’ve been using Final Cut for the past couple of years, but this latest iteration is nigh unusable. I tried edit one continuous video clip by placing a couple of cuts in the middle of it. When I tried to place a dissolve transition in one of the cuts, FC told me that there wasn’t enough clip to create a transition at both ends. Really? I’m cutting one clip down it’s center. There should be more than enough. Second, it said it would create a transition from what was available, yet no matter how many times I dragged the transition and FC told me it would create one, it never did. I tried to zoom in on the timeline to get a closer look at the clips to see if there was a gap I might have been missing, but then I couldn’t find the tool to zoom in on the timeline. Very sloppy design changes. Final Cut truly has devolved into a glorified version of iMovie. I’m pulling it off my machine as it is useless to me right now.

New update or not, it’s still a great program. (10.3.1)

Final Cut Pro X Is a great editing program. I can use it to make short films and youtube videos, and it is very smooth and simple. I would not reccomend using this program for very long and sophisticated movies or films, because it does not have as many layers as Final Cut 7 or Premiere Pro. It gives you fun titles, transitions, sound effects, and animations that help you with your films. The new update looks pretty strange compared to Final Cut Pro 10.0, but I highly reccomend this program. You have space for a lot of footage and media, and putting them together is very smooth. It might seem hard at first, but Final Cut Pro X isa very good editing program. Final Cut 7 was better for larger films, but now Final Cut 10 is aimed more for shorter films. I know this, because when I try to make a longer film than usual, it starts to slow down. I don’t reccomend entering a ton of footage at the same time, because that will slow it down. I give Final Cut Pro x a 100%, A+, 5/5, 10/10 whatever. It’s perfect.

FCPX has broken a new frontier in post-production. (10.3.1)
12/28/2016 1:52:00 PM 5/5 By Manchengo
FCPX, today, is as revolutionary as Avid was in 89. With 10.3 it just gets better. Smooth upgrade for me. Recently I convince a number of hard-headed Avid editors to watch me work in X. They were blown away. One guy called me and said, “you bastard, I wish you never showed me this, because now I hate every day I have to cut on Avid or Premiere.” I did not like FCPX at first, I dabbled with it for a moment or two, listened to the crowd, and joined the masses. I’m a pro editor and work in reality TV, news and documentaries. I cut, for the most part, in Avid and Premiere, because that’s what the industry has gravitated to and because, yes, FCPX was not 100% at launch and was too weird. The fact is, when you are good and fast at something it’s just a pain in a#$ to lear something new. But, I have been editing in FCPX for now more than three years, and it still just blows me away at how efficient the X workflow is. I can usually find a moment buried in 20 hours of footage in 20 seconds. For those cutting reality TV, doc or news scenarios, X just destroys Avid and Premiere on that front. As for horsepower, I can cut, color, track masks in 4K (prores HQ, no proxy) on my laptop faster then on a maxed-out hardware accelerated Avid or Premiere. Let me say this again… my $2800 dollar laptop with a $299 piece of software destroys an Avid.. All the rumors that todays FCPX does not do this or that are just rumors. So what I want to tell the pro’s is, give it a try, be patient, take a tutorial, and be curious, and even be ready to hate it for a couple of weeks. FCPX is powerful and beautiful. At first it can look too simple and “amateur,” but don’t let that feed your prejudice… FCPX is 110% pro, and easily deployable in any post environment (save your files anywhere, share projects, etc). It’s more stable, powerful, faster and it keeps you in the “zone” far longer than its brothers. In a lot of ways it’s very different, but ultimately it does what Avid and Premiere do, just faster and better. Yes, it is hard to belive until you get it. The guys behind X deserve a tech Oscar for this. FCPX has broken a new frontier.

red screen on 4k action cam clips (10.3.1)

Ejecting SD card after importing still doesn’t work (10.3.1)
12/21/2016 7:34:00 AM 4/5 By Skyrocket007
After I import my footage from my SD card, Final Cut Pro gives me a “helpful” notification I can click to automatically eject my SD card. Unfortunately this tool does not work. Even if I find the SD card on my desktop and right click to eject it, I get a popup saying “EOS_DIGITAL cannot be ejected because Final Cut Pro is using it.” To eject my SD card, I am forced to quit Final Cut Pro (which is somewhat of an inconvenience) and THEN eject my SD card. I’d love to see this issue fixed in a future update. Besides the minor SD card ejecting issue, I haven’t had any problems with Final Cut Pro and wholeheartedly recommend it as my editing software of choice. It works well for my needs, and I have been a satisfied FCPX user for over a year and a half now.

Terrible (10.3.1)
12/20/2016 8:28:00 PM 1/5 By spotone55
What happened? Super buggy shuts down every 10 minutes, can’t even read library files properly, spend 30 minute to edit clip, and for no reaseon it can’t be shared to any format whatsoever. Have been usiing Final cut pro for 4 years now, and this is worst so far.

Can (10.3.1)
12/20/2016 6:08:00 PM 2/5 By Seventh key
I like the workflow of the new version but am unable to export a project due to rendering problems. I looked it up and it seems to be an old bug that was fixed in a previous version. Please fix it again, I really need to be able to actually use this program. Also that restart bug is real, please fix that one as well.

My two cents (10.3.1)

FCPX doesn’t remember the size of file preview icons and window panels.

Don’t beleive all the negativity, a remarkable NLE (10.3.1)
12/20/2016 5:04:00 AM 5/5 By KBeat
When the revamped Final Cut Pro X first dropped, it upset many longtime users. There were legitimate issues at the time, with many features missing and an entirely new program to learn for editors that knew FCP like the back of their hands. Add to this the fact that Apple handled the update inelegantly, and it was quite the firestorm. However, that’s not Final Cut Pro X today. Today Final Cut Pro X is an outstanding NLE. I think it’s the best in the business. When it comes to Final Cut, and Apple in general, there is a lot of schadenfreude out there. It can be hard to filter out the legitimate complaints. Try FCPX and see for yourself that it is far, far from “iMovie for prosumers”. It’s a great program for prosumers who want more than iMovie can offer, no doubt, but it’s also a superb tool for pros. Just ask the many that rely on it daily to edit television and film projects.

Ruined so many projects (10.3.1)
12/19/2016 9:01:00 PM 1/5 By hthardman
The update to 10.3 has ruined several libraries rendering them useless, along with dozens of projects I’ve had. I use this for work and Final Cut has crashed during editing and then destroys the project that I’m working on it. I’ve tried everything to get them back and it KEEPS HAPPENING periodically while I work on other issues. I literally want to cry because I rely on this for work and several projects I’ve worked hours upon hours on have just been destroyed.

Want Flexibility (10.3.1)
12/15/2016 10:53:00 AM 4/5 By Virtually Yours
Apple! Please create the ability to customize the locations of TITLES, GENERATORS, EFFECTS & TRANSITIONS... I’m sure there are a lot of editors out there that don’t like the locations of these. Thank you!

please SOMEBODY help me (10.3.1)
12/14/2016 12:48:00 PM 1/5 By Luna Reviews
I accideently updted to this version of fcp. Is there anyway to downgrade back to the previous version of fcp? before they did the interface change?

Awesome update (10.3.1)
12/12/2016 11:53:00 PM 5/5 By geekco
This version finally puts tracks in the stone age, where they belong. Is FCP X perfect? Nope, but what NLE is? All I know is that having cut professionally in Avid, FCP Old, and Premiere. FCP X is far and away my favorite. For 20+ years I been editing all day, every day. (well, sometimes we get weekends off) Cutting stuff for theaters, TV, the web etc. Don’t listen to other companies' propaganda, or the opinions of people who don’t use it. FCP X really is the best, most modern NLE hands down. Also it helps me finish work sooner and go home. That alone is worth 100 times the price. :-)
