Because Resolve is track based, and I go into the issues with tracks in the article and video. As for Premiere, I just made a 30 minute video showing exactly why I don't use Premiere. Because FCP X blows it away. You can disagree with my conclusion, but if you're asking THAT question, it means you jumped straight to the comments without reading the article or watching the videos. If you want to stick with Premiere, go ahead. If you want to open your mind to see what I prefer in FCP over Premiere, watch the video.
Only does that if the clip is floating over the primary timeline. If it's in the timeline, you can add transitions all you want.
You may be the only person I know who has used the Imix VideoCube aside from myself! Blast from the past. Yes, I am getting jobs on FCPX. I’ve done a handful of indie features, several short films (including paid ones), some commercials, and I just wrapped up a 10-minute documentary.
Most of them have required the producers wanting to hire me, and me wanting to use FCPX. And if I’m the only editor on the project, it’s a pretty straightforward process to get them to agree. Especially since they know it’s not because I’m unfamiliar with Avid or Premiere. So when I tell them there are many reasons to use FCP, it doesn’t take a lot of convincing.
Now, if it’s project requiring many editors, then I’ve gotta suck it up and work on Avid, but that’s been thankfully rare lately.
Agreed, I’m not a finisher, never been my area of interest, but 95% of the projects I cut in FCPX are finished in Resolve. And I truly love how well they work together. I’m a big fan of Resolve, just not so much as an NLE. But for the rest? It’s awesome.
I have zero inside information, I don’t work for Apple, and they had no idea I was writing this until after it was published earlier today. But the rumor mill is implying that we may saw that support with the next update this fall. Again, that is just the going rumor. But I think it’d be a logical next step for their so-far-annual major update.
It’s a valid point, but I didn’t want to get into the After Effects workflow, because it’s not something I really use. I know Motion is an option with FCP X, but again... I have no experience in it. The projects I work on, if there’s After Effects work... well it’s just exported as a layer with an alpha channel, or the vfx artist will composite it and send me the composited image. Works on every NLE. And I think it may be a usable workflow for some who rely heavily on AE, but it won’t be right for everyone. There’s no one perfect tool out there yet.
