FCPX 10.1.2FCPX 10.1.2 New Features

Something for my “X” men (and women). I watched the recent Larry Jordan presentation on the creativelive.com website of FCPX 10.1.2, and though the software now seems more functional to me, it still appears “clunky” and difficult to get around within its interface. I am one of those editors who never liked FCPX from the beginning (particularly the way audio is handled), but I follow what is going on with it. While I will admit that mastery of this preset-loaded software can save a lot of time when the need arises, I find its ability to be creative exists on a cookie-cutter, clip art level as I do with many other Apple products. This seems to stand out as being Apple’s way of convincing its public that one can do what the pros do if one will just decide to buy the new product. In other words the “pro” suffix exists to convince consumers of its professional-like capabilities. Still, FCPX 10.1.2 is a nice tool to have and I’m sure that this update will increase the user base to larger proportions. But will it be able to capture the hearts and minds of the majority of professional editors yet?

I have posted a FCPX topic on the forum for anyone who either agrees or disagrees with my comments. I would like to know what other professional editors think about the merits as well as pitfalls of FCPX 10.1.2. I suppose what I am looking for is a reason to really master the software other than just to get more work from having the ability to work on multiple platforms. I’d like to know what you think is actually better about working the Apple way.

On the other hand, be sure to check out creativelive.com to find many instructional videos on a myriad of subjects and software. It’s one of my favorites and could turn out to be one of yours too.
