Apple has extended the Final Cut Pro X free trial to 90 days! If you’re not an FCPX user, this is the perfect time to learn a new NLE.
Let’s face it, there are a lot of great NLE’s out there. We all have our favorites and many of us use more than one. If Final Cut Pro X is not one of them, now is the perfect time to learn. If you’re stuck working from home with time on your hands, head over to the Apple FCPX web page and download a 90 day trial.
Of course Final Cut Pro X has an interesting, and at times controversial history, rising and falling, and then rising again in popularity right up until the present. FCPX is definitely a NLE that every editor should know, and have in their post arsenal. Probably no other NLE is as performant on Macs. Now there is no excuse.
The Final Cut Pro X Trial
You can expect to find a fully-featured toolset that covers everything from media management, editing, titling and motion graphics, color grading and finishing all in one package. The trial is fully functional with no restrictions for 90 days.
Explore FCPX’s magnetic timeline and innovative editing tools including advanced multicam editing. Organize and tag your media for easy searching.
Create great looking 2D and 3D titles and check out FCPX advanced color grading and finishing toolset as well.
FCPX also features a 360 and 360 stereo video toolset and workflow including VR titling and VR headset playback.
I went from Premiere over 20 years ago, to Avid to Resolve, and somehow skipped FCP altogether. So I’ll be spending some time getting familiar with it over the coming weeks, and if you’re not already a FCPX user, you can too – free download here.
