Apple Final Cut Pro 5 : moosers's user review
I've been using Apple Final Cut Pro 5 for about four years and have found it to be a great piece of software for editing videos, and is probably the best software of its type that I have used. I use this to edit together short films - usually live music videos, and it works great for this type of use. While it takes a little while to learn all the ins and outs of Final Cut Pro, as it is a very in depth program, everything is set up smartly and as conveniently as possible. It has the capabilities to edit together videos in a non-linear fashion and also has a wide array of effects and options for making your videos look exactly how you envision them to. I am currently running Apple Final Cut Pro 5 on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I have also ran this software on a few other Mac computers - both a G4 and G5. While it runs best on the Apple G5, it works well on the Mac Book Pro as well. However, on a G4, it is limited in its use as it can only handle so much. Apple Final Cut Pro 5 is one of the most used video editors out there, used by both amateurs and professionals alike. It is truly a piece of powerful software and has endless uses. The price of Apple Final Cut Pro 5 is reasonable, but if you are just starting out you are probably better off picking up the cheaper Express version to start off with. Final Cut is a great piece of software and it has allowed anyone with a computer powerful enough to turn their computer into a powerful video editor.
