Final Cut Pro X on the Mac App Store
When the new version of Final Cut Pro made it on to the Mac App Store this week initially folks were excited to see one of Apples Final Cut Studio apps on there. Also it is on at an amazing price. However now that the initial excitement is over, there have come a flurry of reviews wondering about many of the features seen in earlier versions of FCP that are now missing.
Some of the features listed that are said to be missing are things like:
Autosave Vault, scratch disk location options, no manual project saving, XML import/export, EDL, OMF, assignable audio/video tracks, customizable workspaces, customizable bin columns, batch capture from tape, legacy project support, Photoshop layer support, manual Reconnect Media ability, no true broadcast video output monitoring, and now you can only have one timeline per project.
I’m hoping that as with most software, you release your first version and then make updates to it, continually improving it. It could be that we are seeing the first version of an app that will get better often and put back in those things people have been using. For me I wonder though why you would not start from the previous version and build up from that. Many of us who have been using FCP through the changes will have assumed it would be the next step up, not many steps back.
I’m remaining positive about it, and will keep watch – I really need more than one timeline per project as a basic thing so I’m not sure I can touch it until that happens plus being unable to open my other projects will mean I have to abandon all my previous work.
