Do you have an iTunes account setup? I haven't tried buying FCP X yet, but I've bought stuff from the Mac App Store.

It's not in iTunes, but the Mac App Store. What version of Mac OS X Snow Leopard do you have? You'll need the latest version of S.L. to have a copy of the Mac App Store app.

I got the same thing and it finally said my account wasn't available yet ... to try back later. I figure they're getting hit big time right now.

As I understand it, NO plug-ins will work with the new version

Re: FCP X Now available to buy and download from App Store

I sincerely hope you are wrong! But t wouldn't surprise me. Still shocked it's not possible to import FCS projects into FCPX. Brilliant work guys!

Yeah, I think Apple is going to eventually merge Soundtrack Pro fully into the Logic Pro interface and then add basic features to Garageband. Makes a lot of sense, but I wish they'd drop the price on Logic Pro.

Still it looks like there's some pretty good audio features that have been included in FCP X, including several Logic Pro effects. And Garageband does have basic video soundtrack capabilities.

Re: FCP X Now available to buy and download from App Store

Hey all,

Since they ditched Color and Sountrack, I very curious to see how much of that functionality has been integrated in to FCP X.

For color correction it looks from the manual like you CAN do:
- Secondaries
- Masks
- multiple color effects.

I wonder how the quality compares to Color. I wonder how the metering compares as well.

For the sound it looks like you can NOT do:
- submixes and busses
- effects on an entire track (instead of a clip)

Losing those two will make me very sad.


Can anyone who's downloaded it take a look and give a yay/nay on any of these?

Thanks!

FxPlug plugins are not natively supported in FCP X. However, they can be supported through FxPlug 2 in Motion 5. The added benefit is that you can create a placeholder template in Motion 5 using FxPlug plugins and then access it directly in your effects palette in FCP X.

This is a little work-around I'm playing with now.

Re: FCP X Now available to buy and download from App Store

Wife is DLing it now and is going to re-edit a section of her last project with it to test it. She will take the raw footage and edit it, CC it and do the sound. So... We'll see. What she is struggling with is understanding how to get the same license onto multiple machines (5 total). She has been on the phone with the mothership this AM but she says they are clueless and the app store is giving error and all kinds of crap.

Re: FCP X Now available to buy and download from App Store

You just have to login with your Apple ID on each computer you want to download and install the software on. This works the same for all Apple software. If you login with a different Apple ID, you can't download the software. Not sure if you can't install once you have downloaded.

Re: FCP X Now available to buy and download from App Store

App Store blocks purchases if you have an early MacPro GPU. I have MacPro 3.1 (early 2008) with Radeon 2600 so I can't purchase.

I'm hoping someone with 5770 installed on MacPro early 2008 or older can confirm a purchase even though that combination is not "officially" supported. Many have reported the combination runs just fine but that doesn't mean it'll pass Apple's detection demons.
