5 features I miss from Final Cut Pro 7 ?Classic?

I spent most of the last week of November working on a job in Final Cut Pro 7; or Final Cut Classic as we seem to call it these days. This was the first FCP7 job I had done in over a year (at least I think as they all run together after awhile). Cutting in FCP7 was at the client?s request and while I have tried to convince them to move to a more modern NLE this job was to be an FCP7 job.

More Life for your Mac Pro

I work a lot with a local college?s film production technology program as an advisor, editing instructor and occasionally as an editor on some of their professional productions. It?s a unique program designed to teach hands-on, below-the-line filmmaking skills. The gear has to be current and competitive, because they frequently partner with outside producers to turn out actual (not student) products with a combination of professional and student crews. The department has five Mac Pros that are u
