Apple blocked some harsh reviews it received from the users on the Mac App Store on its updated video editing software Final Cut Pro X on Wednesday.
The Cupertino-based company had released Final Cut Pro X, Motion 5 and Compressor 4 on Tuesday.
Apple in its press release mentioned the product as a revolutionary new version of the world's most popular Pro video editing software which completely reinvents video editing.
But it was soon followed by a list of negative remarks calling the software disastrous. Here are a few negative comments about the product:
Extremely buggy, overly simplistic -- I get the impression that folks at Apple that design software don't actually run a production environment, and don't understand our needs at all. – Fraize
No Multicam!! -- FCPX is literally unusable without Multicam. -- Greg Golding
Not for an editing house. You simply cannot import anything but your iMovie projects. -- Kevin Lewis
HUGE problems and disappointing. Cannot open or import anything from FCP 7. -- Prof Keynote
This application should not be called FINAL CUT PRO as it is NO WAY COMPATIBLE with older versions of FCP.... It's basically iMOVIE with a few improvements. -- Pretty J.
Other reviews compared Final Cut Pro X to Windows Vista, calling it no longer a professional application, while others took issue with the lack of backward compatibility with Final Cut Pro 7. I run my business on FCP and my first impression of the new app is that it is horrible, wrote user dangerousdan.
