    Really?????!!!!! You have to be kidding! Every thin I do in FCP takes 3 to 4 steps to do in Premiere!!!!!!!!

  3. kmonahan says:

    OK. However, some things are faster in Premiere Pro too, right? For example, you don’t have to transcode the footage before you start working. I think that’s pretty cool, don’t you?

    Let me know which things that FCP can do faster and I’ll pass along your concerns. You can also file a feature request here: http://bit.ly/ck4LbS
