Recently a blog post from Neil Sadwelkar titled "What’s the big deal about FCP" made the rounds of the post people on Twitter. It’s an evaluation of Final Cut Pro, mainly comparing it to Avid Media Composer. This is obviously nothing new, there are probably hundreds of such blog posts around the net, but this one was a little special simply because of it’s massive wrongness... Neil doesn’t seem to be approving comments on his blog post, so I thought I’d post my points in response here.

I love Mac’s. They’re like my car. I put the key in the ignition, turn it, and it starts. I don’t need to hunt down drivers for all the components that come with it when it arrives from Apple, because Apple takes care of all that. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a tech head, but I also just don’t have the patience that is needed with a Windows based machine. Especially a Windows based NLE system, and ESPECIALLY a Windows based...

Sometimes I feel like I am right out of an In Living Color skit (funny skit show from the 1990s) where some Jamaican lady says "You only got three jobs? You so LAZY!" OK, I guess you had to be there...

One of the difficulties that many up and coming editors face in this age of DIY has to do with social connections. With the size of editing crews down to the bare minimum, it is hard for people to learn from other editors, and much harder to meet with people who might be able to help them improve their skills and job prospects.

The world is full of experts and knowledge stuffed minds that can sometimes lead one astray on the path to completing video productions. Convoluted methods, agonisingly painful conversions, renders, encodes - and the production is still locked inside a program in a computer and not out in front of the eyes of the audience

I’ve just received a copy of Avid Media Composer 5.0 – it’s a bit like Christmas! I’ve had a chance to try some of the big new features – AMA linking to RAW RED media and Canon DSLR clips, but it’s going to take me a while to dig right into the new features – I may even have to read the manual!

When Action 3D Productions hired an editor to cut the concert film Phish 3D, it made sense that they’d go to Don Wilson's Americana Media.

"This is not Media Composer," says Avid senior product designer Frank Capria. "I could be anywhere. All the media you’re going to see is in Tewksbury. You just clone it." The Avid system is so quick and looks so much like Media Composer that Capria has to explain to the audience that the video he’s editing is actually being edited thousands of miles away and streaming back.
