Love it or Hate it: a brutally honest look at Final Cut Pro X by Scott Simmons (50:08)

Love it or Hate it: a brutally honest look at Final Cut Pro X by Scott Simmons (50:08) | DSLR video and Photography | Scoop.it

FCG015 – 10.1 Beat Down (feat. Scott Simmons)
Released Jan 20, 2014

 

"A brutally honest look at Final Cut Pro X. We try very hard not to be seen as “Fan Boys” at FCPX Grill so, ss we are known to do from time to time we take the gloves off and are completely honest and frank about misgivings and short comings of the application. Scott Simmons is extremely well versed in Avid, Adobe and Final Cut, both X and Classic. Because of this has a unique ability to see thru the hype, Scott can ask questions about functionality that very few people can.
