Final Cut Pro is a professional nonlinear video editing software (written in Cocoa) for Mac OS X. Its first version was released by Macromedia in 1999, and later by Apple. It has been recognized as the best video editor on Mac OS, and especially welcomed by video hobbyists and independent filmmakers (such as: Kirk Baxter, Angus Wall, Leonardo Dalessandri, …). Final Cut Pro X is a fully rewritten version released in 2011, and the last version of the original Final Cut Pro is 7.0.3.

Final Cut Pro X contains all the functionality you need to perform film and television post production (such as import and organize media files, edit them, add special effects, improve sound effects, color grading and delivery systems, etc). Moreover, it comes with a minimalist and intuitive UI (enabling you to make full use of the screen space in any size of display), groundbreaking timeline function (which obviously improves the speed of post production), powerful material assembling ability (lets you use automatic metadata and customized keywords to find the fragment material), breathtaking performance (gives full play to the amazing power of the new generation of MacBook Pro computer). In addition, it also supports multiplex and multicore processors, supports GPU acceleration, supports background rendering, is able to edit various resolutions of videos, builds in the color assembly line managed by ColorSync (which can ensure the color consistency of the whole film).

All in all, after radical redesign, Final Cut Pro combines revolutionary video editing capability, powerful media organization and incredible performance together. As a result, your post-production work efficiency will be greatly improved, so as to seize the fleeting inspiration, and create impressive video works.

If you use Final Cut Pro together with Motion (another post-production software of Apple), then the final result will be very similar with the combination effect of Adobe’s Premiere Pro + After Effects. Someone specially made two sets of comparison, and the result is the combination of Final Cut Pro/Motion is more economical and practical. Again, if just do simple video clips, iMovie can be completely competent, and Final Cut Pro can be regarded as its premium version!
