I think the new program Final Cut Pro X (1.0) is one of the fastest video program I have seen. It’s amazingly. But. it’s a new program. It’s not a update by FCP 7.0. I hope Apple makes FCPX 1.0 better (not near iMovie, near FCP).
Many people write about FCPX (1.0). I have found one blog-article by Chris Marquardt “Final Cut Pro X – wrong gamma in viewer?“.
So, I repeat his FCP test. I used a Macbook Pro 15″ (2.2GHz; 8GB). Test by Chris Marquardt (I have modify left buttom picture; orginal “the storyline preview thumbnails as automatically rendered by FCP X” ).
- Left top: the source clip in Quicktime X, as shot with a Canon 5DMkII
- Left bottom: tree clips in one
- Right bottom: the clip in Quicktime X after exporting it to ProRes422.
- Right top: the preview in the FCP X viewer. Clearly not matched.
The Mac display profile are MacBook Pro (D65 G2.p2 A0.00). I see the results – All the same. If some will testing … the test sequence (Canon 5DMKII – 5.6 MB).
