I drank the Kool-aid.

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been dazzled by new things. It’s taken a very long time for me to realize that not everything is as advertised. That wonderful piece of technology might claim to do everything short of making your morning coffee, but nothing can deliver everything. If it could, how would you compete?

So I waited to push the buy button… a whole 10 hours.

Did you find some interesting reviews? I did. I think most of us made it to the same 10-20 pages that first day.

A quick read of a review of the Ripple Training videos for FCPX by Ken Stone, and I decided to get the training series. If I like the new software, I’ve got training. If I don’t like it, then I’ve saved the $299 I’m about to spend.

As I started watching the very progression of uber-cool features, I got excited. I didn’t get past the first hour of the tutorials. I drank the Kool-aid.

There have been many other resources available since that first day. I recommend checking out Izzy’s Final Cut Pro X tutorial. It’s totally free, and the guy’s excitement is contagious.

The next chapter: what’s IN the Kool-aid?
