Preparing for Final Cut Pro X

Preparing for Final Cut Pro X My first (and only??) FCP X seminar. Get in quickly because it’s filling very fast.

Because it’s before Final Cut Pro X ships, I’ll be drawing from my last year of fairly accurate researching and writing about Final Cut Pro X and merging it with the recent preview to give you the best preparation for the upcoming release.

While you’re there, check out the rest of the other upcoming Final Cut Pro X webinars at Final Cut Pro X Webinar Central.

  1. I’m signed up for this. I’m hoping to hear, by then, more about licensing for businesses. We have and use 10 licenses now. Will our buyer have to go to each system to make individual purchases via the Mac App Store? That’s not very practical. I do wonder what Apple will do for education installs and the like as well. Just think of those shops with 20, 30, or 50 stations with FCP.

  2. I will not have any more details in the seminar than I do now. I will be offering my interpretation and opinion but Apple are not releasing any details on anything not already spoken of, until FCP X is release.

    You might, Philip. IF Apple releases more info, which they could. I doubt very highly this is all the info we’ll get before the June release. The interest question will be how will they disseminate that info…

  4. There is a possibility for more details, but that’s up in the air. Obviously if they do, I’ll incorporate them in the seminar. Meanwhile, I’ve been thinking and looking at the sneak peek and the high res images Apple supplied me, and there will be some new information in the seminar.

  5. Can’t wait- should be fun regardless. Never done a webinar before.

  6. Yes, it is hard to say goodbye. It took many years to become so proficient. And now we must start from scratch. How will trainers teach their students when they themselves are back to ‘beginner’ status? I must admit, I am fearful.
    I was looking forward to 64bit version, accessing all my cores and ram but never expected, nor wanted, a whole new application and GUI

    Hopefully, our fears will be for naught but it is us, the Final Cut users, who have become Apple’s collateral damage.

  7. I was definitely one who wanted Apple to rethink the NLE, recognizing that it would likely end up being something new. From last September:

    “What if Apple – since they have to rewrite much of Final Cut Pro – decided to not just do a “faster horse” rewrite but rethink what the NLE should and could be? The first problem with making major improvements is that it will involve change and we know that no-one likes change: they want things to get better but never change! So if Apple are re-imagining Final Cut Pro, it will be unpopular with “the pros”, at least until they give it a try. (And I can probably name those who will hate it among my acquaintances.)”

    Change is still uncomfortable, even when you expect and want it.
