Apple Well, this just got interesting. There's been a bit of a backlash over Apple's Final Cut X Pro, which is considered a step down from previous versions by many professional videographers, as they claim it lacks countless features - leading to the nickname 'iMovie Pro'. Former Shake product designer and former Apple employee Ron Brinkmann has now weighed in on the situation. His advice to professionals? Don't rely on companies like Apple.

Really? Actually they aren't saying what you THINK they are saying.

They're saying exactly what he thinks; that this is version 10 of FCP. It's not version 1, X means 10. If they mean something else they should do a better job of communicating it to the existing users. Obviously that's not the case.

They are saying this is the FUTURE of FCP and that for a lot of people who don't use tape anymore and don't need to import/convert their old projects and don't currently need multi-camera support, then this will be a great product for them.

So, uh, it's a Pro product for non-professionals.

For the rest of FCP users, including you, this is a very tasty look into the future of what you and/or other pro users will be using.

If they have any Pro users left, that is.
