LINK: Larry King cut on FCP
[QUOTE=The Third Man;163900]
Avid is a corporate editing tool and FCP is more for home users as the most people here at the forum.
FCP is not "more for home users" in any regard. That's iMovie. FCP has always just been easier to get your hands on. It is fully a professional piece of software and used by industry pros all the time. I am a professional editor and I use it. I know AVID and prefer FCP.
Whichever one chooses to edit, NLE's are just tools to get the job done.
WOW! iMovie...so glad I am not using that!
I used to cut scenes on set quickly in iMovie...great tool for rough dv edits quick. Now I can't navigate iMovie and FCP is quicker to me.
I still feel there are very serious places where FCP falls down in the basics... Stuff that people like Murch wouldn't care about because they never touch the input or output.
FCP has perhaps more in the way of 'prettying up' features than Avid, but lacks some of the fundamentals (media management, input and output stuff). FCP might be better suited to some types of production (where there's not going to be any recapturing, online, film conform) but for many applications the lack of good media management is a serious impediment.
I'm a professional editor, I use Avid and FCP, and I prefer Avid (even though the only feature I've ever cut was on FCP).
