Final Cut Pro is Dead….Long live…..something else
So it's finally happened.
I now make more money as an Avid editor than a FCP editor.
I fought against Avid for so many years, banging on about how great FCP was and now I am a god damn turn coat.
It does feel strange. It does feel like I backed the wrong horse. This must have been what it was like for people with BetaMax players and Atari STs.
I knew this day would come at some point. I'm still using FCPX at home, but none of the post houses I work for are going anywhere near it. A few have adopted Premiere, but not many. Some are still running FCP, but most seem to be moving to Avid.
Now where did I put that Edit Droid?
