In filmmaking it's not about the tools but rather what you are able to do with it, simple as that. If you suck at storytelling no editing tool will help you with it. Some might know the youtuber Daniel Schiffer (if not, you missed out big), amazing stuff he does. You wouldn't call him bad only because of using FCXP :D
FCXP and silicon will be a banger combination, excited for the future.
NOT AT ALL.
There may be some features missing and bugs but Premiere Pro still isn't optimized for the Mac (or Mac Pro even) and FCPX is just WAY FASTER. There are advantages to Adobe and Davinci and FCPX and Avid and etc. so it's still up to the end user, but when it comes to speed on a Mac system it's hard to argue against FCPX.
On Topic: I can NOT wait for the 16" MBP with AS SoC.
People will defend the hell of the organization tools but I was shocked it's just Spotlight. Spotlight isn't reliable.
Keywords instead of bins is bonkers.
If you're making a film about MLK, and have 500 photos of MLK, then keywords are worthless.
No easy manual save function to preserve different versions is a problem too.
And basic tasks like quitting the App can take 20 minutes saving a ballooning Library.
FCPX is like one healthy update away from being something special but they're playing.
