How does the New Final Cut update compare to Adobe Premiere?

After the major update of Final Cut there are articles and articles about how much Final Cut has improved it's features, having now caught up with Adobe Premiere in functionality, especially how now it's "pro oriented".
Anyone had any experience? Does it really come close to Premiere?


Haven't used this version of final cut but I can say that the last version of FCP was not even close to Premiere and while its functionality might be close, it takes so long to do the exact same thing! I can just say that CC just rolled out their CC 2017 so Premiere also has a major update, one of which is optimization which was much needed.

Over on there's a robust discussion about this topic. Many are reporting that with fast disk drives, FCPX handles 8K footage "normally" (meaning that FCPX is allowed to make proxy files in the usual way--automatically).

Premiere Pro CC 2017 has been optimized, but After Effects has not, so for those using PP + AE, heavy operations are going to painful until the next update.

I am happy to report that CC 2017 does seem to work well on OSX Sierra, which is a relief.
