Final Cut Pro X Editor's Review

Video editors for Mac platform are aplenty nowadays and choosing a suitable contender for your needs can be rather tedious, owing to the abundance. The Final Cut Pro made by no other than Apple stands out tall amidst the sea of competing video editors, mostly because of its intuitive workflow and plethora of useful features. Its robust media organization capabilities and vast repository of tools give FCP some serious competitive edge. In last few years the app has received some substantial upgrades to stand up to the competition. The new version is ideal for post production setups and studios where editors need a comprehensive editing tool that can produce stunning and professional looking results.
 
Final Cut Pro X runs on OS X v10.9 and later editions and this means older Mac users are out of luck. Like any mainstream video editor, it has steep hardware requirements. A Mac with 4GB RAM is the minimum requirement and you should ideally have double the amount for smooth performance. It also gobbles up a lot of disk space post installation. The app requires an OpenGL-capable GPU. The app has been tuned up to be used with new Mac Pro and deal with 4K UHD footage.

The moment you launch FCP, you will understand, there is hardly anything superfluous in its UI. Apple has worked hard to ensure seasoned users can access required features without facing interface clutter. This video editor has a very streamlined and functional UI. The browser can now be hidden with a keyboard shortcut, which is handy when you want to have more screen space. However, it can be brought back into view only with menu commands.

There are no separate panes for Project library and Events any longer. The Libraries pane now shows Projects, Events and Libraries. Now a Library can be kept anywhere on the drive and you may make multiple Libraries on a single drive. Final Cut Pro now comes with a nifty automatic Library backup option. While the option of having full Library backups is helpful, project snapshots are like icing on the cake!

When it comes to media format support, FCP ticks almost all boxes right. There is support for H.264, AVCHD, MOV and many other formats. The same thing can be said about audio format compatibility. The way media is imported in FCP has also been revamped. You may simply import media from its location, get it copied into Event folder, and lastly move it to another place in the drive. Any content placed inside Event folder is labeled as Managed Media. Anything that is outside Library bundle is deemed External Media.

While FCP has always been famous for its extensive video editing capabilities, now it boasts impressive audio editing tools as well. It can be used to get rid of noise and unwanted hiss and hums from audio tracks. Recording an audio clip directly in the app is now possible. The visual countdown enables you to start recording at your preferred time.  

 FCP can also deal with DSLR videos. The dynamic media organizer of FCP makes finding a particular clip in media library fast and less tedious. The app supports several camcorders and still cameras made by leading companies like Panasonic, Canon and Sony. Now, FCP offers support for external monitoring through HDMI port for resolutions up to 4K. Additionally, it supports third party I/O devices through Thunderbolt 2 port.

The popular FCP features have also been given a revamp. The multicam feature is one such example. Now, it is possible to detach audio from the multicam clips so that you can edit audio and video tracks individually. The timeline tools also enable you to edit audio or video tracks exclusively on timeline. You can now perform retime and replace in single step. Its enhanced retiming feature lets you tweak clip playback speed without altering length of a clip or rippling timeline.

In FCP, the stabilization algorithm has been spruced up. It analyzes a clip to detect dominant motion and then applies apt algorithm to stabilize the shot. The InertiaCam option, a new entry that helps you eliminate camera wobble that occurs during zoom and pans.

Positive Points:
•    Streamlined, carefully designed UI.
•    Support for 4K video.
•    Spruced up Library management.
•    Enhanced stabilization and multicam editing.

Negative Points:
•    Extremely resource hungry.
•    No support for Older versions of OS X.

Conclusion:
After a number of revisions and upgrades, Apple has been able to deliver a killer video editor in form of Final Cut Pro X. The support for new Mac Pro and 4K HD footage makes it ideal for high end editing and post production setups. The app is seriously heavy on resources but that is actually true of any high end video editor nowadays. When equipped with right hardware, the app runs quite fast and offers near flawless performance. The Interface tweaks and streamline media management deserves applause. The seasoned users will also appreciate enhancements in audio editing and improved stabilization feature. Support for 4K HD media and excellent monitoring give it some edge over competitors. It is however not meant for older Macs.

Rating: 3.5/5
