  • I have both and on my experience I found that fcpx crash more than pp on both of my macs. So now I just dedicate to editing in my pc with pp

  • So well done! I wouldn't have known that you favored PP given the awesome, objective delivery of each point across both platforms. Excellent compare/contrast. Thank YOU!!!

  • I was under a mistaken impression that DaVinci And Premier had clearly surpassed FCPX in power and usability. While some surely believe this to be the case, your video paints (no pun intended) a more nuanced picture. “It just depends”. Thanks for your quality video in terms of presentation, information and entertainment. Nice work.

  • i’m looking to invest in either a surface pro 6 + surface studio to view 4k or a 13 inch macbook pro with touchbar + the imac pro… i’m gonna need to decide between microsoft and windows fast 😬 (btw the music is great)

  • Thank you, super helpful video. I have one lingering concern as I (today!) begin to edit the rough cut of my first feature on FCPx. I only want to assemble, but I will want more skilled people to color correct, sound mix, etc. and they all prefer Premiere. So is it really possible to export an FCPx doc to Premiere? And if so, does this cause quality loss? (We shot in 4K and I want it to look like it!) Thanks again!

  • Great comparison – thx for sharing. Actually I like them both. I started with Premiere long time ago and then tried out FCPX … and I really like it. Workflow is really much faster, and sometimes the quality is even better. It has some unique qualities, like for e.g. if you have footage with 30 fps mixed up with other framerates and you want to export to 24 fps, the results are much smoother and cleaner compared with Premiere.

    Normally I use Davinci Resolve for color grading (sometimes that the only way possible e.g. when working with BlackMagic raw), export my footage as Prores and do the edit in FCPX which es then working extremely fast. If the project is much more complex and I need/want to use After Effects, I tend to use Premiere – at least for the parts where I switch between Pr and AE.

  • With regard to rendering speeds if you use a Nvidia plug-in that uses the GPU to render the render speeds can be 6 to 10 times faster for rendering H. 264 and 8. 265 videos. The NVENC plug in isn't officially supported by Adobe but is a third-party work around and it works quite well.

  • Premier is very stable if you throw enough RAM and CPU power at it the only issues I've seen with Premiere Pro is that the video playback window stops updating after a very long editing session or after Premier has been running for several weeks without being restarted. But we have never seen it actually out right crash. We can always save our work and then we just start or restart Premiere and get smooth play back to back.

    Well , I´ve been using Final Cut Pro since 2000's (FCP 7 / X). Since 2017 I am using Davinci Resolve also. Oh man, and I need to say.. DaVinci Resolve is great!! I can't wait Resolve 16. I've never used Premiere, so I do not have opinions about it… it doesn't matter what NLE do you use, just tell a great story. My personal opinion is that Davinci Resolve will kill FCPX and Premiere if Apple and Adobe do not move quickly.

  • I've spent thousands of dollars on cameras and equipment and just now bought Final Cut Pro. I've started a YouTube Channel and I am working towards getting better on everything. I'm looking forward to seeing if its night and day with Final Cut Pro and I-Movie. Good Video.

    Its easy to become overly attached to whatever software is most familiar, hence the heated debates about what is the "best" software. Suffice to say, we're fortunate to have so many options. I don't want to be thinking about "tools" when I'm in a creative mode, so familiarity is more important than what is the "best" software. FWIW, I cut with Premiere Pro, but will be doing more editing in Resolve as it becomes more a more mature (and stable) editor. I am also intrigued by FCP, mainly for its support of Apple's ProRes RAW. I'm just not keen on spending a lot of time learning yet another editing application, but I do believe for some in-house production studios, ProRes RAW could be reason enough to use FCP.

    I haven't worked with FCP, so I can't comment directly on your comparison to PP. However, your comment about the customizable interface of PP raises a red flag that isn't warranted. New users can easily revert to the standard layouts with a single click, so its really not something to be afraid of. I totally agree about PP's tendency to crash a lot. Every review/bench mark comparison I have seen indicates FCP does render much faster than PP. Resolve is also much faster than PP. So, Adobe has some areas to work on.

    Although this video was to compare FCP and PP, editors should remember that the vast majority of studio films are still edited with Avid. The first Deadpool film was edited with PP, but for the second film they went back to Avid. Major studios put much higher demands on editing software than your typical corporate/wedding/event/music video editor will, which is why Avid is still preferred by many. Just some food for thought…

    No one will ever know what NLE was used to edit a film. Ultimately, editors simply want to use what suits their workflow and editing style. Its great to have so many options!
