The Final Cut is the Deepest

Bring me the head of a software engineer!

After months of work and scads of money, I sit down at the new workstation in front of the big shiny monitors and I get set to log and capture some HD video footage. And what does a couple of thousand dollars worth of software say? Nuh-uh. What device, there ain't no device attached to the fireware. So I scramble and tweak and ponder. Time passes, brain hurts...mayhem is tempted. So I shut down the state of the art video editing software and I start up the free bundled software. In seconds, I'm digitizing footage.

There is just no excuse. Steve Jobs, put down your stupid iPhone and fix your warez. Gawdammit.

And people wonder why I often prefer to edit on Premiere...
FCP is okay but it can be frustrating...

Frustrating isn't the word. They simply neglected to support a very popular camera, the Canon XH A1, that was supported in previous iterations of the program. Argh.

I had a similar problem with the DVX-100 and FCP...
And the Titler in FCP does not even come close to Adobe Premier... Yes I know you are supposed to use Motion but still...
