A little over four years since its release, Apple's Final Cut Pro X hasn't quite comeback to its prominence in the professional video editing industry it once held. To the point that even its creator, Apple, is abandoning the software in its workflow.
I still remember the day I decided to switch from Windows to Mac a few years ago. Being an avid video editor at the time, I was very excited to open one of it’s signature applications, Final Cut Pro. I heard so many great things about Final Cut… then I started to use the program. Needless to that was the last time I used Final Cut Pro X. After a day of use, I immediately switched back to Adobe Premiere Pro.
Now apparently Apple itself doesn’t favor using their program, Final Cut Pro X. One of their job postings surfaced showing its requirements for an Assistant Editor position. While there is in-depth editing knowledge and experience required for this position, one specific application doesn’t seem to be involved:
Final Cut, nowhere to be found, essentially a waste of memory space for many video editors alike.
The once heralded video editing program left many disappointed after its release in 2011. While Final Cut Pro X does serve a purpose at the consumer level, it simply does not meet the demands of the video editing professional. That being said, this surfacing isn’t the best look for Apple.
