Apple Responds to Video Editors’ Grumblings Over Final Cut Pro
As a freelance video editor, Scott Greenfield spends most of his days in a dark room editing video clips on a computer.
So he should have been rejoicing on June 21 when Apple launched a new version of its Final Cut Pro software that was aimed to make video editing much easier and faster on its latest Macintosh computers and operating system.
Instead, Greenfield and other film pros have voiced a cacophony of complaints and said they’d prefer the old version of Apple’s software, which has become an industry standard. Their efforts, including the circulation of an online petition and a segment mocking the new software on Conan O’Brien’s late night talk show, have prompted Apple to provide a help website and issue assurances that updates are coming to some features of the software.
