Summary Final Cut Express HD is a first-class video editor. After migrating from a Windows, I bought Final Cut after I had heard that imovie was more amateur than what I do. On my Windows, I was using Adobe Premiere Elements 2.0. After using Final Cut Express, I never looked back!
Final Cut's treasure chest of features make it an amazing product. While not good for professional editors, this program is outstanding for intermediate editors. The key-faming features in Final Cut Express offer more control that Adobe Premiere Elements 2. You can set individual keyframes for many aspects of a filter including objects such as a bevel. You can them animate it. The multitrack editing in Final Cut Express HD is unbeatable with up to 99 audio and video tracks. The HD integration is flawless. Crowds will wow at your HD productions using HDV. The workspace is divided into the Browser, Viewer, Canvas, and Timeline. Each play an integral part in the editing process. Customization is a breze. A feature called bins makes organizing your media in the browser a breeze.
