Final Cut Pro and Final Cut Express

Final Cut Pro is a professional non-linear editing system created by Apple Inc. that allows both professional and home users to edit both video and film. The latest releases are for OS X only. From the early 2000s, Final Cut has developed a large and ever expanding user base. One of its greatest strengths is its ease of use.

In 2003, Apple launched Final Cut Express, an inexpensive version of Final Cut. It uses the same interface as Final Cut Pro, but it lacks all of the film-specific tools and other advanced options, pruning the feature set for amateur and professional digital video producers.
