    Question final cut express hd vs. final cut pro 5.1
    ok, i am reserching these and i thought i would ask, does anyone know the major differences between these programs? all i really know is the for express hd its 300 (which comes wht livetype, and soundtrack pro). and 5.1 is like 1000 (but it comes with motion, livetype, soundtrack pro and more) is this just becuase of the other software it comes with? or is there a major difference.

    Final Cut Pro does not come with motion, or the other apps, final cut studio does at $1300, one of the main differences between pro and express is the way it handles the time code and that you can log and capture in final cut pro but can only capture in final cut express. Final cut pro can also accept a wider range of plug-ins and is more integrated with programs like shake. If you want final cut for home use, there is no reason to go with pro, express will do you just fine.

    Yeah, ive noticed pro really isnt worth the extra money. Although motion and dvd studio pro are very nice to have.
