“I’m sure Final Cut Pro X doesn’t appeal (yet) to professional video editors because Apple has done what Apple is best at: bring down the software and the way you use it to a level of a 7-year old — which is basically what we want from software, until it interferes with our position as experts,” Brookson writes. “You can feel frustrated about that, but it’s inevitable, and Apple has a leading role in this evolution.”

Brookson writes, “However, after having edited three videos with Final Cut Pro X, which translates in an experience of about three weeks, I can safely say FCPX in my humble opinion is very much a professional’s tool — it makes video editing not that simple that anyone can do it. To accomplish that, Apple would have had to throw a lot more overboard.”
