As a student in digital filmmaking and video production soon to become a legitimate proffessional in my field when I heard the rumors of the new final cut x, I was outraged to say the least.
This new software was built with the amateur in mind giving more automatic features and taking away more control needed by us who actually know what we are doing.
And of course Im not saying that I am against consumers having the ability to buy a cheap camera and edit there amateur video on there own.
What I am against though is a proffesional software trying to tailor to there needs, thats what imovie is for. So I immediately knew that if apple didnt fix this problem, us proffesionals would be leaving there market.
And as expected and hoped for final cut pro seven has been brought back to right the wrong. And hopefully apple wont make the same mistake twice.
Heres a link to a new york times article talking about the issue.
