FCP double speak

| No Comments

Final Cut Pro is stressing me out. It's so different from Premiere that my firmly embedded paradigms don't work and I can't figure out how to do anything. 1200+ pages of manuals don't make things any easier.

So I'm feeling a little negative and I need to turn my thinking to the positive. Rather than talking trash at FCP when it doesn't behave as expected, I've come up with some code word equivalents:

complicated = comprehensive
confusing = full-featured
exhausting = exhilarating
frustrating = challenging
impossible = inspiring
stressful = stimulating

I'm not as good at political correctness, obfuscation, and double speak as the US government or George Orwell but then they aren't trying to master Final Cut.
