Apple a inventé l'inteface sombre. Il justifie cette « invention » par son souci de permettre aux utilisateurs de se concentrer. Mais tous les logiciels devraient permettre l'affichage clair — on n'est pas en Chine de Mao... C'est pour cette raison que je ne vais pas utiliser cette application : je ne veux pas qu'on m'impose quoi que ce soit. Allo, Apple !

I like FCPX, it it just was more reliable, so many small nagging bugs which are there forever and every updated introduces a few new one, Apples QA is non existent anymore and Beta testing is preformed on the final version by it's users. Feature wise it's also lagging I'm not far from moving over to Davinci

I learned video editing in Final Cut Pro 7 and I hated Final Cut Pro X for quite awhile–it was too much like iMovie on steroids for my liking–but it's grown in my esteem since then. Light years better than Adobe Premiere Pro (and also cheaper in that you might be paying thirty or forty dollars for your Adobe subscription, but if you want to access those files you have to keep paying. And paying, making Final Cut Pro X a genuine bargain). It's a great application and like most Apple software, way more intuitive than it has any right to be.
