I have’t purchased Final Cut Pro X yet, but I am watching what others have to say about it. Initially it seems most folks say it is lacking some key professional features that Final Cut 7 has. Others are saying it’s a glorified version of iMovie and shouldn’t have the word “Pro” included in its title.
I can’t speak with any authority on this so I’ll post links from others far braver than I that have purchased the software and started reviewing it.
