3.2.4
22 January 2018

Advanced video editor with integrated screen recorder.

Overview

FastCut offers advanced video editing in real-time. Experience outstanding performance. FastCut uses the power of the GPU (graphic processing unit) for accelerated graphical calculations. This is the versatile must-have tool for everyone editing video on the Mac. It brings 3D motion and effects keyframe animation, masking and keying, video transition and filters plus special effects, an integrated ATSUI live title editor with title effects and so much more. FastCut has been designed for real-time processing from the beginning. The RT-engine is based on OpenGL to benefit from hardware acceleration and uses the CoreImage technology for filter effects. You don't need the fastest machine to apply complex effects to multi-layer 3D compositions. FastCut dynamically scales the playback quality if appropriate for optimal playback performance. The clean and intuitive interface makes it very easy to use.

Watch a short screen movie about the new 3D composition clips (inter alia).

I only got as far as importing a movie into the library. You can't edit or test out they haft to offer. Plus the help tends to ask so much for so little on a demo that only lasts 10 minutes with only 10 lunches to spare. It takes more then 10 minutes to edit a movie! You might as well just buy it seeing as you can't do anything with the demo. Useless opon download. So.. I agree with everyone esle, iMovie is still a win compared to this.

DanD7477, anytime you get that damaged-and-can't-be-opened error message, try this....

- Open System Preferences;
- in the top row, click on Security & Privacy;
- click on the General tab;
- click on the padlock in the lower-left corner (if it's locked) and enter your administrator's password;
- in the lower area, under "Allow apps downloaded from:", select "Anywhere".

From there, you can lock Security & Privacy if you want, and you can quit System Preferences. This change will allow you to open and install unsigned apps, and to open unsigned disk images and package files. (This also applies to the above items which might have been signed with v1 certificates [from the old days of OS X 10.8 and 10.9].)

MacUpdate-Jess,

It seems extreme to fully disable Gatekeeper for trying to fix DanD7477's problem, regardless of this article:

OS X Yosemite: The app has been modified or damaged
https://support.apple.com/kb/PH18660

Appears to contradict this more recently updated article:

OS X: About Gatekeeper - Apple Support
https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202491

• "Damaged" app. – The app has been altered by something other than the developer. This message will appear no matter the Gatekeeper option chosen.
• "App name" is damaged and can't be opened. You should move it to the Trash.

Does this still allow only 10-minutes of test driving? If so, I pass, and I laugh. Hideous icon, too.

Today, I gave FastCut another chance. My opinion hasn't changed: it remains this crappy, unintuitive application with poor drag and drop support and unappealing UI. Who buys this thing?!

I agree with earlier comments here. This software must be installed in one place only: the Trash! Can't manage to import any of my clips, and the interface is unintuitive (no drag and drop, no contextual menus...). Charging $24 for this thing is insane. Stick with iMovie, or if you have the budget, look for Final Cut Express HD. Yes, it costs much more than FastCut, but it actually works, and is way more powerful.

Does the developer even read these reviews? This demo is utter garbage and completely useless. I'm sorry but 10 minutes is not enough time to evaluate ANY kind of software. 10 days would make more sense (or longer). You have to make the consumer feel good about their purchase. If you don't even give them the comfort of test driving an application...YOUR application...for more than 10 minutes...well, my friend...you have a LOT to learn about business.

By all means download this app.But a hint---best place to install it is in your trash can.That will save you an awful lot of time since that will be its final destination eventually.

Wow, lame. (well it looks it didn't even get much of a chance to use it) 10 launches 10 min. Then disabled features. Not worth the time or effort. I was hoping to bridge the time until Final Cut releases the Universal Version for the Duo Core. Diagnosis= Not fufilled so i will spend another 20 days using PC then fork over another 1400$ to apple. Monopoly? Yea.
