Yes, it had to be done. I switched from the edit system I have used for the last 13 years to Final Cut Pro. And this is pretty much how my first day went. As I entered uncharted waters the help of "Final Cut Pro for Avid Editors" was a boost to my shattered self confidence. Sure the picture is a little dramatic and it actually turned out to go better each day - enough to say I finished my first editing project. Will see if I can post the project as it is material from a faith based org doing work in sensitive areas (yes, ignore the lightning bolts in the FCP window, this is serious stuff).
And I have figured out how to export the right aspect, so I can actually post clips now.
