Professionals Using Final Cut Pro X
Send me your FCPX article link.
"Is Final Cut Pro X professional" is a question, with its variations, that I've seen lingering from FCPX's original release. The answer to that question is "yes" and that has been documented many, many times by professional filmmakers, TV producers, news groups, event videographers, post production houses, pro editors and more. Final Cut Pro X users really don't need anyone to tell them whether FCPX is professional. They know it is.
Does FCPX fit every professional workflow? Does Avid or Premiere Pro?. The answer is, no single NLE fits everyone's professional workflow. If you have your own definition of professional (professional - engaged in a specified activity as one's main paid occupation rather than as a pastime) or other special requirements or workflows (working with proprietary hardware, software, editors or producers), you'll have to decide which NLE is right for you. You might have a different question, but the professional question has been answered. Final Cut Pro X is the present and future of professional video NLEs.
Here are some of the high end professionals that use Final Cut Pro X:
Michael Cioni (Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Spiderman, Pirates Of The Caribbean) who said:
"Final Cut Pro X is possibly the most powerful editing tool ever built." (starts at 13.40)
"Final Cut Pro X is a powerful alternative to Avid Media Composer. Regardless of what you've heard, most people's opinions seem to be based on what they've been told, not what they've actually done.
