Final Cut X 10.03… are we good to go?

Confession… we haven’t delved into FCPX yet.

We were deep in a couple of editorial jobs when it came out, so it would have been unprofessional to jump in. Then all the negative buzz kept us away when those projects finally wrapped. At the very least we couldn’t/ still can’t use our Matrox I/O devices with it, so that was a non-starter. Instead, we upgraded our Adobe package and planned to get cranking on Premiere Pro sooner than later. Well, we still haven’t done that either. We’ve been getting happily by with our trusty FCP7, but now there is a new update to FCPX.

It includes:

Bigger and better multicam
Better XML
Support for layered PSD files
The ability to open FCP7 projects with a $10 plugin/app called 7toX (big one for us)
Support from a grand sampling of the the plugin scene, including Red Giant
And finally support for I/O, just not Matrox… yet.

Read more here. And here. Is it time for us to try it out? Have you tried it? Thoughts? Let us know. The FCP7 road is coming to it’s end, but our post-production journey continues. Where should we go from here?
