Following last week’s release of Final Cut Pro X and the subsequent backlash of mostly negative reviews, Apple quietly posted an FAQ page addressing questions about the revamped video editing application last night.
Final Cut Pro X is a breakthrough in nonlinear video editing. The application has impressed many pro editors, and it has also generated a lot of discussion in the pro video community. We know people have questions about the new features in Final Cut Pro X and how it compares with previous versions of Final Cut Pro. Here are the answers to the most common questions we’ve heard.
The FAQ addresses questions about importing, editing, and exporting projects as well as media management. Responses to some questions indicate that Apple is working on updating Final Cut Pro X to include additional features such as multicam editing and XML export.
In the meantime, The Next Web reports that Apple is refunding the purchase price of Final Cut Pro X to some unhappy customers. Despite the “all sales are final” clause in the terms and conditions of the Mac App Store, Apple is apparently considering and processing refund requests submitted through the Mac App Store Customer Service contact form.
Final Cut Pro X is available now in the Mac App Store for $299. At the time of this post, it has earned a total of 1,376 ratings of which nearly half are 1-star ratings.
