Being a recent switcher with an out-of-comission DV cam, I haven't had any time to play around with Final Cut Pro. But after filming some humorous diving board-ing today with my friend's camera, I imported the footage into FCP. WOW! I am used to using Premiere on my XP machine, which in turn means I am used to being VERY frustrated. I was expecting my Mac experience with video editing to be much of the same, yet *some* improvement. Was I mistaken... not only is Final Cut very intuitive for a Pro application, it is very powerful. It did everything I wanted it to-- the first time. I'm sure all you familiar with video editing with OSX are aware of this, but it just blew me away! I am so happy that this works wonderfully, even on my Powerbook. The only lag I noticed was when I had Photoshop running in the background (another awesome thing about FCP is it's wonderful integration with Photoshop files!), and even that was better than Premiere performance on my PC. Thank you Apple, you have made my day. Plus, now I can impress all my friends with such a tight movie (now wishing I had opted for the SuperDrive).
