"Top of the line nonlinear edit software"4.5 starson by ricreitz
Pros: lots of bells and whistles
Cons: manuals too hard to follow and not organized well
Summary: I edit professionally and I find FCP4 has all of the tools I need. The software works seemless with the G5 and does not crash too often. My only fault with the software is the manuals, 3 of them 1 1/2 inches a piece. I turn to them for a question and it refers me to too many different pages and each article refers me to another. By the time I am done surfing through the manuals I am frustrated and usually strike out on my own.
