[Andy Field]"I went to NAB in 2000 with a large bank loan to buy an AVID starting my own company - it was the year Apple had FCP 1 on the show floor - I sat at their booth all day using it and couldn't believe it did nearly everything I needed (remember DV was THE format for independent companies back then) for a 1000.00 AVID lost me at hello on price."

What's telling about your story is that other, established post facilities were also at NAB that year. They looked at FCP 1 and saw it as a joke. It continued to be an industry joke for years because it didn't support video out except through FireWire, it didn't have more than two channels of audio input or output, and it had no multi-cam. It was not right for any but specific workflows (like yours I guess). Now, you are on the other side of that story. FCP X is not right for your workflow (I guess)), but it is for some.

I don't like a piece of software for it's "complexity". I like it for how well it helps me do my job. I don't have a problem creating the same kinds of stories in X as I do in 7, or in Avid for that matter. Sometimes X is faster and better than the alternatives, sometimes not.
