"Final Cut Pro X users are all incapable editors" - Of course I don't feel like this BUT its a catchy title and I want to have a civil discussion on choosing a NLE software for editing content. (EDIT: Changed it so it didn't come off hostile). I edit content from little personal things like my younger sister on my iPhone 4 all the way up to paid gigs where I need a stable NLE that runs decently quickly on my machine. I do realize that Final Cut Pro X has been labeled "iMovie Pro" and many features like initially lacking XML export support were quite candidly RIDICULOUS! But I feel as though the software has matured and will mature as time goes by. However everywhere I go I get this negative energy from certain types that since I edit on FCP X I must be a complete idiot that lacks any skills and will never make it anywhere...In fact its gotten to the point where often when people ask what I edited on I will just say Final Cut Pro and thats it...I once cut a 30 second video and various people really enjoyed it (it was one of my first a while ago) and when I said FCP X everyone just laughed. It was as if what I had just created was null and void. Now I'm starting to see more professionals embrace it but I still see this "FCP X segregation" for lack of better terms allot, as if like I said before it completely kills your creative thinking. So lets talk about it! Is a NLE software really what defines a film maker, editor, film, etc.? I don't think it matters what you cut the film on at all...I just happened to walk into the editing world when FCP 7 was getting old and suddenly FCP X came out so I went to that platform and found I really liked FCP X (although FCP 7 does feature some features that allot of us still need so we end up going back or going towards Adobe, and Adobe knows this ).
