Final Cut Pro X Information & Resources 18


Final Cut Pro X, Motion 5: Systems with two graphics cards may export QuickTime movies with green artifacts | Support Note | Apple
You may notice green artifacts when you export a QuickTime movie. This can occur on a system that has two graphics cards installed and a display attached to a DVI port on each card.
Resolution: To work around this issue, only use Final Cut Pro X or Motion 5 with a single graphics card installed on your system.

How To Remove The Audio Popping In Final Cut Pro X | AppleTechViewer | YouTube
This may not be a bug, but if you have problems with popping in audio, this tutorial may help. It demonstrates using the free utility Smart Converter - ShedWorx (on the Mac App Store) to convert an audio track, and then use Synchronize Clips to attach the new audio to the original video clip.
Not explained is why the popping problem is occurring in the first, though it's likely to be a difference between sample rates (which I've encountered now and again in Final Cut Pro 7 too.)

my take on FCP X | Bill Davis | the davis review
While continuing to support Final Cut Pro 7, Bill looks towards the future:
Next, we keep an eye on FCP X. I don’t buy the criticism that Apple has given up on the creative pro. If anything they are trying to expand the definition of what a “pro” is, and therefore expand their sales and bottom line.

In Defense of Final Cut Pro X | Bryant Frazer and Beth Marchant | Studio Daily
it's not ready for Prime Time, but don't abandon it just yes:
Despite the product's flaws, Schofield says he gives Apple credit for redesigning the interface with an emphasis on efficiency. "They haven't just stuck with a traditional NLE paradigm," he says. "The biggest challenge is learning that new language and getting comfortable enough with it to begin approaching bigger projects."

More FCP X thoughts | Oliver Peters | digitalfilms
Following on from his review, Oliver offers more thoughts on Final Cut Pro X:
I’m coming around to the view that for Apple, the moniker of “Pro” isn’t defined by the target user, but rather by the performance capabilities of the software. Compare iPhoto with Aperture or GarageBand with Logic. In both categories, Apple offers two solutions: basic and advanced.

"X" Terminator Day International Final Cut Pro X Refund Request | Mike J. Nichols | The Edit Doctor
Upset about Final Cut Pro X and how Apple mismanaged expectations (and didn't even provide a demo version) Mike wants to organize a mass refund request for Final Cut Pro X.
While I agree with both of Mike's complaints, Apple seems to be refunding people who complain no questions asked, and I'm not sure that it would have much effect.
