Shocking NEWS from the Final Cut community is Apples underhand price hike from £179 to £199 in the space of two weeks ! Not only has this Janet and John editing system been reviled by professional editors around the planet, but the first time in Apples history that they have had such negative press around one product.
I am speechless as to Apples marketing ploy on this one when Adobe are now offering a massive 50% discount on their excellent 5.5 Production suite. You have no option but to buy Premiere if you want to produce Blu-ray DVDs as Encore to my knowledge is the only Mac platform DVD authoring software available today.
FCPX should be 50% less in my opinion as it has left out at least 50% of it’s previous incarnation including the ability to produce multi-cam editing. Some twat is dicking around with Apple and it’s reputation, I only hope Steve Jobb’s gets out his sick bed and kicks someones ass…sooner rather than later.
