    , I’ve been playing with FCP X (or iMovie Pro X wteeavhr!) and as a single-workstation prosumer app it’s very, good good. The background processing and rendering of multiple input formats is superb.Given that I don’t like reviewing such a large software product after playing with it for only a few minutes (as many do after reading the reviewers’ guide but pretend otherwise) I’m hoping to set aside a lump of time to work with the app in an attempt to put my first-impressions review together. Hopefully, I’ll post something soon.
