Editor Thomas Grove Carter writes up his experience using the new Apple MacBook Pro (with Touch Bar) along with the latest version of Final Cut Pro X to cut 5K footage.
“First off, It’s really fast. I’ve been using the MacBook Pro with the new version of FCP X and cutting 5k ProRes material all week, it’s buttery smooth. No matter what you think the specs say, the fact is the software and hardware are so well integrated it tears strips off ‘superior spec’d’ Windows counterparts in the real world,” he writes.
Discussing the Touch Bar, he writes, “For years we’ve had single mouse inputs on a graphical user interface. Over time we’ve added more buttons and scroll wheels, trackpads with gestures. The Touch Bar takes this step further by allowing multiple inputs at the same time and combines well with the trackpad. The more I’ve used it the more I’ve replaced certain keyboard shortcuts.”
