Final Cut Pro is a non-linear video editing software developed by Macromedia Inc. and then Apple Inc. The most recent version, Final Cut Pro X, runs on Mac personal computers powered by Mac OS X version 10.6.7 or later and using Intel processors. The software allows users to log and transfer video onto a hard drive (internal or external), where it can be edited, processed, and output to a wide variety of formats.
TLA-team: Compared to previous versions the new version features an even more simplified interface and increased speed, is therefore pretty easy and handy to use. Podcast producer lets you export the video files for internet purposes. Also, Blu-ray disc format output is added. Worth mentioning is also the new handling of the media via metadata. Unfortunately tape media can only be captured via Fire wire. The fact that there is no support for import or export of content to other editors or other finishing systems and that there is limited XML and no EDL support, which restricts usability with other non-Apple software applications, makes it a bit incompatible with other software.
