The title is complete linkbait, but shortly after Apple acquired Final Cut that's exactly what Adobe wanted. For the last fortnight, we've been reading John Buck's excellent book Timeline Volume 2, a history of editing.
You can tell Christmas is around the corner, first of all the decorations in shops have been up since the day after Halloween. Secondly it's the season to promote your book.

Two completely different articles from two completely different sources, both full of information on Final Cut Pro X.

Peachpit produce some of the best training books for software on the market, we've got a few of them on the shelves here on the FCP.co campus. They also produce the official books used for FCP certification.

A few months on from the release of Final Cut Pro X, we thought we would take a look at what you can do or need once you've bought FCPX. Content, tutorials, books and videos all await.
