“I was very lucky here at FCP.co to be one of the first to be lent a new Mac Pro back in December 2013. This coincided with the 10.1 release of Final Cut Pro X with its major updates including the new libraries and multicam, retiming & GUI enhancements,” Peter Wiggins writes for fcp.co. “I discovered that on the new Mac Pro, Final Cut Pro X 10.1 screamed.”

“A year on and the same paid broadcast jobs returned, so I thought this was an ideal time to test out the duo again and see what has changed,” Wiggins writes. “A new level of production speed seems to have been created. The traditional areas where other NLEs would bog down in have been removed. Rendering isn’t an issue. You tend to finesse an edit more, more attention to colour correction, stabilisation of shots, fine tweaks that make a visible difference. And all with the confidence of being able to go into a complex edit and change anything without worrying about what happens to the rest of the timeline. Once mastered, the magnetic timeline is an amazing feature.”
