[Craig Seeman] "One thing that FCPX hasn't broached, and may not for some time, is that a powerful database not only allows for complex relationships but allows for flexible display. FCPX has a ways to go in that area but my own guess is that Apple is going to move the database further along for a bit before it can really get into more flexible interface control."

Maybe I'm dense, but would you please elaborate on that with some specific examples? I've seen it stated over and over, but I just don't see it. For example, FCP X's database functions seem considerably less involved than Avid's. (Especially when you factor in things like script-based editing.) Or than Final Cut Server's or CatDV.

Smart Collections and Keywords are simply other ways of doing the same things. Plus this data doesn't appear to be externally accessible. You can export XML, but you can't reach in from the outside and extract information. So, I fail to see how FCP X is any more of a database with any more power than what others have been doing for 20+ years.
