Yeah. It seems like there’s no good options for editing anymore. The hell if I’m going to pay a subscription fee, which would make the software cost an infinite amount of money as far as I’m concerned.
I could navigate around FCPX fine if I had to for video, but I’m not sure how to translate the nuance I’ve been able to achieve via FCP7. As things stand, it should do for future projects to lay out the sequence in 7, and do the audio. Then I’ll send the sequence to X for further processing and exporting.
I don’t think I’d go back to Windows. That’d feel like moving to Asia or something; unfamiliar and foreign to me. Macs aren’t magical or anything, but they’re familiar and feel somewhat wholesome or solid to me. They can be a pain in the ass sometimes, like with this stuff. Windows 10 or whatever the OS is up to now could probably still run Bonzi Buddy from 1998 if one wanted it to.
