        First off the skin that goes over the keyboard is thin enough that it doesn't interfere with the functions. Professional editors tend to be visual people and a tool like this removes you from the mechanics of having to know what each separate key does and puts your mind into the edit... where it needs to be! Note: that if you're working with a Mac Book Pro it behooves you to buy the separate keyboard and place the keyboard cover on that being that airflow for the CPU comes from the Mac Book's keyboard and if you cover it you could burn out your CPU. Be penny wise and not replace Mac Book foolish

          Comments about KB Covers Final Cut Pro/Express Keyboard Cover for Apple Ultra-Thin Keyboards:

          Editors are visually oriented creatives and this simple tool allows your mind to stay in the creative state when editing. The unique thing about this cover is that it fits over the portable keyboard as opposed to the actual Mac Book Pro keyboard which would cause you to block the airflow from the microprocessor and burning up your computer. A very expensive proposition at best.

          I have edited on many systems and prefer both the AVID and the FCP. In each system, marked keyboards make for fast and efficient editing. The soft silicone makes for a pleasant interaction between editor.

            This is great. No more searching and trying to memorize keyboard shortcuts. I've had this product a week now and have definitely realized the speed difference in my editing. It's like going from the one handed hunt and peck typing method to no longer having to look and typing with two hands... but in the Final Cut Pro editing world. What a time saver.

              Soft and comfortable and for the most part easy to read. I'm a visual person so it helps to have this along with the popup balloons in fc that show when you hover over a function. In my first few hours of use I learned and memorized six short cuts. My one concern (since I've only had it for a short time) is how long it will take for the labels to start showing signs of wear.

                    Easily overlooked is the fact that this cover includes two layers of key commands. It not only tells you what pressing "X" does. It also tells you what command+X does. In tiny writing at the bottom of every key is that key's command function. Many of these keyboard covers just feature the first layer of FCP key commands. Hopefully this is useful info to someone else.
