    Hello,

    I stumbled across this site, claiming I can download FCPX for $99:
    http://www.soft-royal.com/shop/item/965/

    Has anyone used them, if i can save that money it would be great but I have never heard of them.

    Cheers.

    I'm pretty sure FCP X is only available on the App Store, which means anyone else claiming to sell it is extremely shady. They're either lying or pirating the software.

    In addition, Web of Trust had this to say about it:

    As the saying goes if the its too good to be true then it probably is

    Especially given that the whois info shows a creation date of 05-sep-2011

    If you read some of the info on the site, like the FAQ, you can see that their English is poor. On the front page they have icons instead of links; there is a VeriSign icon, but not a link and reputable sites provide a link.

    These sites are definitely dodgy and updates and documentation will be a problem.

    Deal with reputable dealers and ignore the scammers.

    FCP X is only distributed through the App Store. Anything else is fraudulent.
