Final Cut Pro backlash.
Two months ago, Apple previewed
the new 64-bit version of its popular professional video editing application, completely re-written and re-designed with loads of new, revolutionary features, an iMovie-like interface, and a deep price cut. Excitement
abounded. On Tuesday, it was released
, and the excitement has been completely reversed
. Unfortunately, as Apple typically
does with all-new products
, they left out a lot of features that users particularly needed (including backwards compatibility), and simultaneously killed
the previous version, causing an unprecedented amount of confusion
in a matter of hours
. Many people felt left in the lurch, others felt that Apple had abandoned the pro market without telling anyone, and still others prescribed patience
