We use it in standard trainings for creators. We also use it for exceptions training where a certain concept is either more difficult for some creators to grasp, or too nascent yet and needs a more focused visual explanation.

Final Cut Pro X

Final Cut Pro X is great for a situation where you are working on your own short video. The longer the video or the more resources you use in the video, it quicky slows down. I have had some projects with a 40-minute video clip that had a green screen and it felt very sluggish. I have heard Premiere is better at handling situations like that. If you are doing a short video the intuitiveness of Final Cut Pro X is worth it.

Pros

Animoto

  • Helps any audience Tell Their Story: A handful of still pics can be uploaded, then in just a few clicks you can add music, choose a theme, tweak as needed: done!
  • Visually augments the creative process of defining exactly the message marketing is looking to capture. While words can mean different things to different people, visuals are a very effective communication tool. Animoto lets you test, change, test again and learn so much more about your audience in the process.
  • Our "Who I Am" use of Animoto that drove a higher rate of engagement with our millennial audience that we're challenged with defining the answer to that question.
  • Endless applications in every division: Product Engineering, who want to design their GoToMarket strategy, HR who would use it in a Promotion/Employee Awards program or Training Departments.

Final Cut Pro X

  • The magnetic timeline was as controversial as it was ground-breaking. After adapting from other editing platforms, I consider it a major pro as it takes several keystrokes out of nearly every edit - saving you massive amounts of time.
  • Auto-saving. I can't tell you how much progress I lost prior to having this feature - and I was a fastidious "Command-S" user... A simple feature, but incredibly helpful.
  • Background Rendering. I originally thought this was a gimmick - but having to hit "Command-R" is a think of the past. No more waiting for the render - no more manually adjusting playback resolution just to see the edit, it just works -and it works fast.

Cons

Animoto

  • Great visual tool that lets you intelligently communicate what you are seeking to explain to your audience. More features I might suggest would be anything that makes it more interactive with the viewer in real-time.
  • For the price , it is a great deal as is.

Final Cut Pro X

  • The preview windows cannot be undocked the way you can with Premiere Pro. I've used both editing software and it's nice to be able to throw a preview window onto another monitor just by dragging and dropping.
  • Because it does function so differently than previous years, there's a steep learning curve. A "legacy" view would be nice to help ease longtime editors into the new version.
  • Video production is sometimes feast or famine. Premiere Pro allows you to rent their software license, and then discontinue when you are done the project. Final Cut Pro X simply asks that you buy it at full price. Having the option to rent would be nice.

Final Cut Pro is a great software package for editing, and obviously, good things require training to understand and comprehend what your are editing. I do not give a 10/10 because it would be easier to have a comprehensive manual inside the software, rather that researching or getting yourself trained.

They are always updating and adding more amazing features. While they update, it is very easy to update all the project files as well. I love the continuous improvements they are adding to the software. They are very responsive if there are any questions or any help needed.

Implementing Final Cut Pro into the organization was a smooth transition from what we didn't had. We felt we went from zero to hero with this software, due to all the great features that we learned. We took some time in training staff on how to use the software but at the end, this was very useful and important.

Alternatives Considered

Animoto

We had invested in making our own videos using YouTube, and even Camtasia. But they were still us interpreting on behalf of our audience which took forever. Once we found Animoto, it was so much easier to upload the pics our audience would send us. From there we had a 100% positive response, that we had indeed captured what they were trying to say.

Final Cut Pro X

Final Cut Pro X is just as good as Adobe Premier Pro but doesn't require a subscription to keep using. The one time cost was a plus for us. Although Final Cut Pro X is only available for Apple, everyone in our department uses Macs so it wasn't a problem. We've found it easier to use and gives the same result in quality.

Return on Investment

Animoto

  • Positive as it is so simple to use, and even helps discover where a creative student would benefit far more with a more focused visual.
  • Positive as it is - seriously easy to drop in content and create a video short on any topic, in literally minutes!

Final Cut Pro X

  • The video projects I've worked on has been a part of an ongoing campaign for the last 4+ years and as part of that campaign has helped raise over 10 million dollars in that time.
  • The highest engagement on social media is by far video. Having a platform to quickly create appealing content is essential when the task list is always getting longer, never shorter.
  • I have brought in several inexperienced people to help do initial content cutting as a phase 1 of editing. Because of the intuitive setup of FCPX, I was able to train in just a few days, and in turn, saved many hours of labor with the help of the new volunteers. This software is easy to learn and easy to use, and saving time means more stuff done.
