It is so famous that it can directly compete with the likes of Adobe Photoshop.

With such a powerful tool in hand, it is obvious that I would like to get their hand on such a tool. But for the user who watches a movie on windows or windows supported format, it would be hard to use a final cut pro. Since it is specially tailored for the MAC OS user, you will need to pick up your favorite files and convert the WMV file to FCP, a friendly format in order to use this powerful giant for editing purposes.

Part 2. What is Final Cut Pro

Final cut pro is a proprietary product that is currently developed and sold by Apple Inc. I bet when you know that the final cut pro is famous for the mass, you must be excited to learn about its cool features that make it the best in its field. Let us look at some of the best features that final cut pro has to offer:

  • Magnetic Timeline: Easy assembling of shots and clips “magnetically” close up that will eliminate any unwanted gaps present in the timeline.
  • The multichannel facility for Audio Editing: Simple keystroke option enables you to expand the Audio file.
  • Multicam: There is the 64-bit engine that helps you working natively, also in real-time, along with a variety of formats, frame rates, and frame sizes.
  • Clip Connections: keep related clips together.
  • Auditions: With the unique Auditions feature, it’s easy to try out shots and find the perfect one.
  • 3D Titles: It is now easy to make professional video titles in a few clicks away.
