    My free trial of the current version is about to expire, so that would mean another 30 days for free. :cool:

    This will be a very telling event. Apple is going to need to make some very aggressive moves to earn back the trust of a lot of pro users, most of all a roadmap for future pro Macs the commits to regular updates and spec bumps.

    Form the FCPX.co site it seemed fairly positive from those giving a small indication though under NDA for what people saw recently

    hopefully it includes more stability updates. I seem to can't get through a job not having to force quite.

    I'm sure it will be more stable and work better with macOS Sierra. I'm looking forward to audio improvements and hopefully better options for collaborative efforts.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we see an update today, maybe in the next hour or so. Would make sense to release before the summit.

    Probably on game day.

    I hope they focused on getting rid of the bugs. Also, they better do something for Pros. My colleagues are advising me to go to Adobe Premier and After Effects. I would rather stay with FCPX and Motion and really do no want to go to the Windows platform...

    Apple, there is enough of emojis and toys, let's now focus on giving us more Pro stuff in FCPX and motion instead of iMovie kids transitions and sounds etc. Don't get me wrong. I love FCPX and Motion, but keep us on your platform and not have us migrate to Adobe if we want more Pro stuff.

    Agreed. Along with FCPX and Motion, I already use some Adobe stuff (Premiere Pro, After Effects and Photoshop), but hopefully I can end my subscription at the end of my current term. I'd like to stay in an all (or mostly all) Apple workflow as much as possible.

    Last month I was able to convince my college's TV studio director to consider FCP X. He held off when it was initially announced, due to people claiming it was "dumbed down" and such. I showed him the current version on my MacBook, and explained how they added back a lot of professional features, including some new ones. He was quite impressed with it, ESPECIALLY the background rendering and 64-bit support. (It somewhat reminded him of the old Pinnacle Liquid Edition software the college used to use back when the college's Fine Arts building primarily used Dell PCs; now it has two Mac labs, and the theater department uses a couple of iMacs as well.)
    They plan to replace the early 2009 24" iMacs in the video editing lab at my college's Fine Arts building with new 27" Retina Display iMacs (they're leaning towards the 1 TB Fusion drive model; I heard it's a great Mac for professional video production!) If they do, they are planning to have Final Cut Pro X and Compressor on them, along with the Adobe creative suite (not sure whether they'll still use their copies of CS5.5, or upgrade to the new version.)

    Final Cut Pro X is my main video editor for anything elaborate I do on the Mac, especially "YouTube Poops." (I hear many Windows "YouTube Poop" makers prefer Sony Vegas, but being a Mac person, I find FCP X to do the trick nicely.) For most elaborate photo work, I prefer Adobe Photoshop CC. Sometimes I use Adobe Premiere Pro CC for certain video projects. Anything basic I do (like simple vlogs and whatnot), I typically use the current version of iMovie.

    Use em all!
    If you have access, time and resources then learn all of them.
    I've had to just to survive the last 22 years in this field.

    For me its Avid at day job, FCPX at home for my film company and Premiere at times gets in there due to clients needing to grade/finish on their own terms.

    Its not the app that makes you pro its how you execute it to the the end of the production.

    "OS X 10.11.4 or later"

    Looks like I can hold off on Sierra for now.

    Oh hell yes, this makes up for the craptastic "Future of the Mac." Time to start figuring and specing out a new Hackintosh for FCP performance.

    Got FCPX 10.3 downloaded and running.. Lots of good changes.. Had to buy the Ripple Training Tutorial for 10.3 as the changes are more than a few cosmic updates.. So far I like it..
