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.

Cannot recommend FCPX: the UI is cluttered, obtuse, and slow. Media management is cumbersome, and even the most basic adjustments use OS9-like controls. Yesterday I (very sadly) removed FCPX and Motion from my computer. Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve offers much better design, interface, control, media management, and speed. Apple has given little love or support to professional users in this, and many other 'Pro' apps. I didn't abandon Apple – they abandoned me.

works like a charm on my 4GB 11" Macbook Air. Software like it should be, no bullshit, complicated workarounds, unnecessary learning curves, lets you focus on your creative stuff, not to waste time finding ways to perform simple operations.

It is too large size, even it works well.
MovieMator is much more light weight, and meets all your needs of video editing.
IT IS FREE:

not very stable with my 2013 MacPro, Identified several ways top crash FCPX which Apple could reproduce but no fix yet... also would wish you had a feature which allows purging of unused footage

Final Cut Pro X is the best money can buy. You can a lot for the 'low' price compared to any other pro editing tool. With the new Touchbar it seems to be even more interesting. If only had $2700 for a new MBP. :-)

By far the best video editor for a low budget. Nothing comes even close, except Adobe Premiere. But Premiere is about x10 more expensive.

FCPX is imo the best editor in the low price category and even beats much expensive tools. Conclusion: It is a fit for novices and prosumers. Great app

The best NLE so far and with many reasons. Fast to edit, huge for organising media, fast to render and share (export), no headaches when it crashes, awesome multicam features, etc, etc. I realised some facts a while ago… Who says that FCPX is a bad NLE are always those who really never tried it.
