For me the future is having a timeline framework that will allow incredible power to be manipulated quickly and intuitively. As bottlenecks in data rates are reduced with thunderbolt and processing power at CPU and GPU allows a level of really complex real time processing, then the organisational power of layers within tracks will be able to be manipulated.

Editors love the way audio can be played with via faders and knobs. Imagine doing that with vision as well. To me the framework that is tried and proven for real time human control in audio is better suited to video. Throw away the track and you throw away a simple means to have control over groups of layers.

When roles were introduced, it immediately signalled to me that the people behind FCPX realised the magnetic timeline was limited. I fear though that the structure is so ingrained that they added roles on as a fix. I can't see how roles can be as powerful as tracks via the bussing and auxiliary control that track based audio systems enjoy. It is all about control and making spatial sense which magnetic timeline and roles doesn't seem to have.
