"Stable but Clunky"2.5 starson by nikiacree
Pros: Cheap and Solid
Cons: Non-integrated and Non-functional
Summary: I use Final Cut Studio 2 nearly every day. I like that it doesn't crash much and that it is fairly inexpensive. Seems to handle HD quite well.
Final Cut has a couple problems- snap to doesn't work well, so clips will often be off by one frame or so. Bins are problematic too because you can't organize thumbnails except by drag and dropping and the list mode doesn't have thumbnails.
Apple Color looks nice, but integration with FC is not fun. It's difficult to go back and re-adjust clips without exporting the whole project again.
Apple Motion's presets get in the way. I've found that many tools are tedious or unintuitive while others just don't work.
