i've been using final cut express HD 3.5 for the past 4 months and have gotten pretty familiar with it. however, final cut pro along with the the other final cut studio apps seem very enticing.
mainly, i would like to know about the differences and advantages or final cut pro 6 compared to final cut express. thanks for the help.
edit: also one more thing, is there a big difference between fcp 5 and fcp 6??? there are classes on final cut that i want to take, but they are learning on fcp5 and if fcp6 is similar, i would definitely enroll in those classes. thanks again.

fcp 5 and fcp6 are similar, the basic fundamentals they
will teach you in editing classes are the same ( harkening
back to even using FCP 3). I learned on FCP 3,
got a class in FCP 4, Bought a book for FCP 4.5,
and have a book on my desk for FCP 5 when I move
this winter up to FCP 5.
( I'm slow and follow FDR's "if it ain't broke rule...". sosume )
But everything is basically the same.
Apple changes some of the Prefs palettes around, and
adds some new features, but overall the key commands
are the same.
Differences in FCE and FCP/FCS are all the intergated stuff
( DVDSP, Motion, Livetype) and the few features I looked at
when I was making my purchase ( HD support, mutli camera
support) but some of those have been integrated into FCE
Basically, if you are ready to step up and learn more
of what ALL the studio apps have to offer, then move up
to FCS. Learn how to ingrate lower third animations using Motion,
learn how to animate titling effects with livetype, and learn
how to fully use Soundtrack Pro and DVD Studio Pro in
finalizing your product.
here is something to look at as far as just FCE vs FCP.
FCE vs FCS"Everyone has to learn, so that they can one day teach."
When I'm not here, Where can I be found?
