    I just bought this course to learn final cut Pro X and cannot believe what a poor quality product it is. Low res images, terrible sound and a product that is so old I do not even recognise the interface nor will I be continuing. It is one thing to be disappointed to find this as part of a subscription but another when you are charging $49.95 for this rubbish. I cannot believe how far Kelby training has fallen. I bought it safe in the knowledge that it would be the gold standard training not some garbage that someone forgot to take down.

    I echo the above. I need help with Final Cut Pro X (latest version) and cannot justify renewing my membership until it becomes an offering.

    I second that! I’m stunned that FCPX is not even searchable here. I’ve generally been very impressed with this site but feel very ripped off that I came here and put down my $$ for 5 mos. of lessons for X and get stale, not usable and appallingly out of date. It does smack of Adobe lock step and I’m a Creative Cloud subscriber, not a hater. Mr. Harrington, what say you? Mr. Kelby, say it isn’t so! Somebody reads these comments, right?

    How old is this? It’s been at least two years since Final Cut Pro 10 has come out. How about an update to the current program instead ofOne on something old. Or maybe I’ve been scroll down far enough to see that you do have oneā€¦ If not you need to get going.
