I won’t bore you with a long discussion of the merits of Final Cut Pro X vs Final Cut Pro 7, but suffice to say the lab now has both available to students.
More on differences:
Suffice to say both are suitable for professional level work, so as the lab has both, we let the choice be yours. In the lab, computer 4 has FCP 7. Our edit room machine has both X and 7. If you are taking a class or prefer one over the other please let us know so we can switch you to the appropriate machine.
