[Bill Davis] Most of the "here's how this works" stuff takes place next door in the FCP-X Techniques forum.
[Kevin Zimmerman] "My question is pretty simple, and it's intended for editors who are working with FCPX in a professional work environment, for paying clients.
How do you deal with the one edit per project architecture of FCPX? I think there are many, many issues to spiral out of control over with FCPX, but this framework that Apple is created — where a project IS a single timeline, and therefore IS a single cut — baffles me. And I have no idea how I would work around it.
The idea that, with clients in the room asking to see a subtle difference between two versions of an edit ("here's one that starts with the wide, here's one that starts with a medium," that kind of thing), I need to actually click between different PROJECTS is just... well, I find it laughably useless."
