After all this hype that has been circulating about FCP being dumbed down for only the prosumer and not the professional video editor, what will FCP have to offer you in order to stay as popular as it is? Whether people switch to Avid or even Premiere (watching another production company nearby use the CS5 AE to Premiere to AE features are pretty cool) is another question on its own, but seriously though. What would FCP 8 have to add to its features/interface to stay or become the standard in your world?
Obviously it would have to match everything Premiere and Avid are offering with their new upgrades, but what else? All I see from Apple people is “very awesome” or “exciting” or if you want exact words,
“”Final Cut Pro is the first choice for professional video editors, and we’ve never been more excited about its future,” Apple spokesman Bill Evans told CNET. “The next version of Final Cut is going to be awesome, and our pro customers are going to love it.”
I don’t know. What do you think?
