FastCut 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.

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.
