Mark HalloranThe FCPX Sweet Spot?

Count me among those who started off as a hater, and is coming around to like FCPX for a very specific few types of projects. I'm wondering if others have found similar sweet spots:

I work in a large multi-site teaching hospital, editing everything from training videos on blood drawing to CEO interviews to marketing pieces. I report to people who do not care what editing tool I use but care a great deal about deadlines.

I switched from FCP7to Premiere Pro CS5 as my primary editing tool this past fall. But I'm finding that FCPX is awesome for cutting quick interviews when Web/intranet delivery is the destination. My FCPX sweet spot is interview and training projects that are <5 minutes and don't involve complex graphics. For everything else, it's PPCS5. Without multicam capability or the ability to handle hour-long shows that require me to work with 40 hours or more of raw footage, things are likely to stay this way for quite awhile.

My guess is that people who edit on multiple systems will find at least one sweet spot for FCPX.

As an all-purpose go-to app, fugetaboutit. At least for now and for me. But have any of you come to appreciate it as a limited use specialty app?
