FinalCutPro8 or PremiereProCS6 as some call it

15 Mar

So folks, with todays Vimeo-Post from the Editing-Crew at Conan some might say we finally will get the FCP8 we all want …desperately.

Some say (THAT POST SHOW) that we will finally see PPro CS6 at NAB this year with lost of cool stuff and (a bit) more FCP feel to it (i’ll be there…for that).

Now, we all should not make the (same) mistake some did last year with FCPX – getting too excited too quickly – but it sure looks promising!
Fact is there are not that much options left … FCP7 will get really “old school” at some point … FCPX still is pretty much a toy app (even with “all” these updates) … and AVID MC6 sure is an awesome & solid NLE but it’s really made mostly for that: Online/Offline for TV & Movies (thats why Hollywood loves it … i guess) there is no AfterEffects or Motion and stuff like that… even through its an awesome Application (don’t get me wrong!)

…so in the end the only real FCP7 replacement is / might be PremierePro.

Well we should wait and we shall see.

On a side note: I actually just started a real work project in Premiere Pro CS 5.5 … yes i know i did test that app several times and i said “it doesn’t work well on our machines” but now with the latest Blackmagic Design drivers it finally runs kinda smoothly even with 1080p25 ProRes footage … well not finished yet … but it’s looking good 😉

so anyway … as for now …

    “solid NLE but it’s really made only for that: Offline Edit for TV & Movies (thats why Hollywood loves it … i guess)”

    Have you used Avid? Thats not the case at all. You are very misinformed.

      Well maybe i did get the meaning of what i was about to say not right … u know i’m still a german fellow so some stuff gets lost in translation sometimes.
      So anyway i did update the text a bit 🙂 … AVID really is a solid Editing-Application … don’t get me wrong.
      I actually started with AVID back in the days (like 2001/2002 or so)… so yes i used it and i did look into MC6 and we still have an MC5.5 running here for freelance editor (for TV stuff)
