Experienced Final Cut User…Impressed!!!! - I was Skeptical for 2 reasons. #1 I'm an experienced Final Cut user. #2 I subscribe to Lynda.com who has outstanding tutorials. Note: I have not watched all of the videos from start to finish. Impressed for these reasons. A very large Range of topics…Updated version b/c it covers using multiple displays which is one of the newer features. Goes in depth on topics…these aren't 1-2 minute clips giving cliff note versions. Topics clearly listed on Left of video for quick reference. The Speaker sometimes goes off topic if he is covering a certain topic and a situation pops up. Personally I like this b/c your getting maximum amount of tips. It's a sit back, watch everything, and absorb type of style. I like…Analytical people will get frustrated. IF YOUR BRAND NEW TO FINAL CUT the videos aren't in what I would consider the proper order. Ex. 1st video shows previewing clips. Problem…If your brand new how do you create a project and and get a clip in the timeline? 2nd Video is on Color Correcton. For new people that would be a great video #20. BUT IT'S GREAT INFORMATION!!! I figured if I learned 1 thing it would be worth it, and I have learned a lot of great tips. My Only Suggestion to Developer (And he may cover this in a later video) Start out by teaching new people where to set up their files Final Cut references (See My Tip At The End). Then explain the Pros and Cons of the settings in the Preferences pains. Then new people are ready to get started. TIP FROM AN EXPERIENCED FINAL CUT USER: Problem - When you upgrade computers there is a good chance all of your videos will show error messages. You have to manually find the path for each clip on new computer…50-100 videos with soundclips and graphics = a fun filled entire week of rebuilding your videos. SOLUTION…Buy Fast External Hard Drive. Put Final Cut Events Folder and FinalCut Projects Folder on 1st level (Meaning not in another folder like Movies etc.)…Hook the external hard drive up to your 2nd, 3rd, or new computer and Final Cut automatically recognizes the files….Keep all your assets on same external hard drive and you never have to rebuild videos again, and you can transfer files and use laptop, desktop etc.. IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT YOU NAME THE EXTERNAL DRIVE. If you get a new external drive you can name it whatever you want, transfer the Final cut Files, Your Good To Go. Remember Where You Place the files are important. GOOD = External Drive XYZ (Open Up Drive XYZ's Folder) immediately you should see Final Cut Events and Final Cut Projects (Keep all assets in those folders. BAD….External Drive XYZ then Movies (Folder) then Final Cut folders….WON'T WORK. GameChanger if you buy new computers often…You Can even take Final cut files on internal hard drive and move to external hard drive and FinalCut ProX is smart enough to find them….As Great As Final Cut ProX is…that is the best new feature in my opinion...

Does Not Open - Just purchased, running on 2013 MacBook Pro Retina i7, OS 10.9.1 - this program will not open. Downloaded 4.3GBs and paid $9.99 to look at a problem report, over and over and over.
