Edit video with ease and get professional outcomes with this powerful tool

By Ellie Teller

On Tuesday, August 11, 2015

Final Cut Pro X is the signature video editing program for Mac OS. Even though there are some other popular options out there like Adobe Premiere or Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro X has some unique features that make it very suitable for professionals and beginners. The program features the common elements for a video editor, a timeline, a preview window and a tray where the imported media is placed. It also features video and audio effects that allow you to enhance your final outcome by fading your audio clips, dissolving your videos or even adding color correction where you need it.

This kind of program can be a bit overwhelming at first, but once you know the basics, you can easily produce your own videos. Besides, Final Cut Pro X spares you the hardest part of editing, formats and codec. The program includes several presets depending on where your video is going to be placed.

Pros

  • A powerful tool packed with video and audio effects
  • Export your videos easily using the preinstalled presets

Cons

  • Easy to learn, hard to master

Review

Final Cut Pro X is a video editing software developed and published by Apple. Supposedly, it is the tenth release of the Final Cut Pro series, but it is not a simple new version, in factit has been developed practically from scratch. Over the last ten years, Final Cut Pro has been a benchmark for many users, and this new version has been completely redesigned.

This time, Final Cut Pro X runs in 64-bits, with the corresponding increment of performance. In addition, the new interface facilitates the dynamic edition. However, not everything is good. The program has received harsh criticism because of the lack of several functions of the previous versions, but now, the developers have listened to the users and have included lots of new features in the latest updates.

It is like a mixture between Final Cut Pro 7 and iMovie, it mixes the functionality and simplicity of iMovie with the professional performance of the former. It allows you to mix video files, divide them and edit them, include audio and music, integrate many video effects, transitions, etc. It is compatible with the usual formats, including HD. In addition, it integrates its own audio editor, and offers several options to export your videos to Blu-ray, DVD, and even email, Vimeo, Facebook, YouTube, etc.

Discover its multiple functions

Multicam is one of the latest updates of this editing software, along with the Monitor Broadcast Output, as well as Chroma Keying, the File's Reconnection or the compatibility with multi-layer .PSD Photoshop files. I know that these features are nothing unique when compared with the rest of the video edition programs out there, but at least they enable it to reach the required level to be competitive.

Over the last ten years, Final Cut Pro has been the benchmark for many users, and this new version has been completely redesigned

The Multicam is one of the strongest points of Final Cut Pro X. When you work with multiple views, the most difficult task is to synchronize all the views. This editing software does it automatically; you just have to select the different clips in Event Browser, right click and choose "New Multicam Clip" and that is all. Final Cut Pro X will analyze all the clips and it will generate a new Multicam Clip. The sync can be done based on the Timecode, the date and hour, the shape of the sound wave, etc. You can modify it later, but usually it does it very accurately.

Another important feature is the advanced Chroma Key. The Keyer filter has now more advanced controls that are quite simple to use. It has a color and light selector that is much more intuitive than in the previous version. It has taken the controls of Motion 5 in order to avoid having to exit out of the software and download another one to carry out a useful Chroma Key.

Final Cut Pro X 10.1.4 Features

The list of the main features of Final Cut Pro X is here for you to check it out:

  • Magnetic Timeline: the timeline is now much more easy to use
  • Multicam: You can create Multicam Clips that synchronize the clips automatically
