Final Cut Pro X just dropped

->> Wow, wonder what happened to 8 and 9?

The interface looks awesome. Can't wait to get my hands on a copy.

Anybody here do any beta testing on it, or have a copy yet?

->> If you use the older version of final cut pro you may want to wait.
An informed person at the apple store claims that Final Cut Pro X is really not for some professionals it will not accept files that you have created in an older version of Final Cut Pro.
Seems like it is great software if you are starting from scratch or you do not mind not having the ability to move some of the projects that you created in an older version of FCP.
I really hope that if this is the case Apple will make the older projects compatible with this new version.
Wish Apple would give us the option to download a trail version to test.

->> Thanks gang. Yes, some of the reviews have been awful, some not so awful. There is a good discussion over at lafcpug.org

And, here's a NYT article on it.
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/23/technology/personaltech/23pogue.html?_r=2

My feeling is that the new X version will probably be excellent for most of us PJ multimedia types who don't do a lot of advanced stuff like outputting to tape, multi camera angles and the like. Still, I'm a little bummed I've taken the time to learn FCP, and may have to unlearn much of it. Oh well, if that's the worst part of my day/week/month, then life isn't so bad, eh?

As you guys and gals find writeups, post 'em here. The advertising photographer at my paper already bought a copy. I'll take a look at it this weekend.

->> The most ridiculous part of this entire upgrade:
"Complaint: Can’t import old FCP files.

Answer: As I noted in my column, this is true; your old projects are stranded forever in the older FCP program. You’ll have to keep both programs on your hard drive, and edit the old projects in the old program. When you install the new FCP, your old copy is safely preserved."

Are you kidding me?!?! Even ADOBE gets this one right. If you have an AE or Premiere project or an old PSD in Photoshop, Adobe gives you ways to convert to the new format. For Apple, you're stranded...forever maintaining two copies of the program. Ridiculous.
