Like everything else, they should just make FCPX free to everyone.


Uhhh... Like Avid and Premiere?

They have a free non linear editor in iMovie already, but if you need pro features like 5K native support (a $20,000-$30,000 investment) then it's a couple hundred bucks. Seems reasonable to me...

You may want to learn FCPX first....

"Opacity key frames in fcp 7 were set directly on the clip"

CTRL V to show video animation. ALT click in the opacity layer to set keyframes directly in the timeline.

I also feel there should be a way to disable the magnetic effect of the time line.

Use the POSITION tool (P) to move clips without using the magnetic timeline. pressing the ~ key will also allow you to ignore the connections to the main story line.

I find that many complaints about editing in X are just due to the user not knowing the program yet. I know it can be frustrating at first, but FCPX is way more advanced than FCP7 ever was. Good luck.

I don't think it should be free, but it would have been nice if they had let people who paid $500-1000 for FCS download a free copy.

It's nice to see they are regularly updating FCP.

Cheaper indeed, lees usable as well. I am not trolling, I am only extremely frustrated with fcpx...


are you kidding? fcpx is very powerful and very usable. it is light years ahead of fcp studio.

i get stuff edited in 1/3rd the time.

take advantage of keywords and the shift to storytelling mindset and it's a better way to work.
