Final Cut Pro X Review from Macworld

final cut pro x review

Macworld recently took a long hard look at Final Cut Pro X and found it to be “an innovative, elegant, and unusual video editing program.  It is “more prosumer than professional now, but it still offers a lot to independent creators of all types.”

Here’s a brief summary of the Final Cut Pro X Review from Macworld:

The Mac-exclusive Final Cut Pro X is the very definition of a “prosumer video” editing program—descended from a much more expensive professional tool, it attempts to bridge the gap or hit a sweet spot between consumers who want something powerful but easy and affordable, and professionals who can’t bear to lose a single piece of functionality.


  • Several small innovations in workflow and organization make it a delight to use once you adapt to it
  • High-quality effects, transitions, and titles
  • Not sold as a subscription; you buy it, you own it
  • P3 wide color gamut (Rec. 2020) support
  • Great importer


  • Unusual approach to timeline editing will turn off many experienced users
  • Team collaboration tools don’t quite match those of competitors
  • Need additional software (Apple Compressor) or the full range of export formats
