I personally use Final Cut Pro X on an almost daily basis, and can highly recommend the app. I’ve tried several times to switch to Adobe Premiere, but, at least on a moderate machine like my MacBook Pro with Retina display, I find that Final Cut Pro X is more stable, smoother, and just overall better optimized for Apple’s machine.
Of course, there’s also the matter of learning curve, and while it could be argued that Adobe Premiere is more of a pro level app at this point, Apple has begun to build out the feature set in Final Cut Pro X incrementally. Since the initial version 10.0 release, which was met with mixed reactions due to the absence of several pro-level features like multicam editing, Apple’s added that back along with many more features.
In fact, we did a video overview of the 10.2 release, which brought several significant new additions to the table.
