The lab now supports both Final Cut Pro 7 and Final Cut Pro X. We are not encouraging people to use Final Cut Pro X because it has several drawbacks, but it is in the application folder in the lab if you would like to try it out and see what you think. If you are just catching up on the FCPX hoop-la here are some of the programs pluses and drawbacks:
-If you know iMovie, you will be seeing a more familiar layout that the previous version
-Most, if not all, of the rendering will happen in the background while you work. No more coffee breaks while you wait for your video to be ready.
-Auto-align for matching multiple audio tracks of the same source.
-No support for any projects of previous versions of FCP.
-Different interface than previous versions
-Doesn’t transfer between multiple machines with ease
