Looks- Apple claims to have completely rewritten FCPX, and it sure looks that way! The interface has changed dramatically and so have the features. The design is much sleeker and user friendlier, not to mention the two upgraded companion software, Motion 5 and Compressor 4, which together provide you with an arsenal of video-editing capabilities which may even rival that of Adobe's After Effects.
Features- FCPX provides the user with a sea of new features from a new precision editor and magnetic timeline and clip connections to keep everything in time. The new Final Cut Pro X is built for tidiness and many new features help keep your timelines, collections and media in harmony.
Performance- FCPX has been optimized in many ways. With new 64-bit design, it is built for bigger projects with higher frame rates etc. It is built on a cocoa foundation which means it is more responsive and less likely to crash on the native OSX operating system. The new Shared Render Engine means you can have high-quality rendering and you can even edit while rendering with background processing! GPU utilization means you can create higher resolution effects that play in real time. With all these features, its the real deal.
