What? At the recent meeting of the Los Angeles Final Cut Pro User Group, FCP guru Larry said exactly that on stage. The four videos after the break are well worth a watch if you are going to be buying FCPX next week.
There we were watching the videos when Larry came out and said that version 1.0 of Final Cut Pro X will not be ready for professional use. Wow what a statement, we were almost in tears! Our new baby is about to be born and you're already calling it ugly! Sure, any first version of software ships with the paint still wet, but why won't it be ready for professional use? Are features missing? Will it keep crashing? Will there be an update soon after launch?
Michael Horton at the top of video one says that no new information will be disclosed in the discussion. We disagree, Larry gives us a good insight into how Apple are targeting FCPX to users.
Well worth taking your time to watch. The comment from Larry about 'not being ready for professional use' and 'not ready for primetime' happen in the first two minutes of part three. Larry will be a guest speaker at the London SuperMeet on thursday June 23rd.
