[Steve Connor] "In timeline terms what exactly can't you do in FCPX that you could do in Legacy, apart from tracks of course. A specific example would be great"

I think you're missing the point. It's not that you couldn't do multi-channel work in FCPX, the question is why would you want to? It's not designed with that in mind.

Look at multi-channel audio. Even Apple knows it's currently a mess and needs fixing. The same problems with multi-channel audio apply to multi-channel video as well. Let's see what Apple comes up with in the next release.

Tracks and absolute time is a natural way to graphically express multiple concurrent channels of time-based media. There is no primary. There is no secondary. There are just media objects composed in parallel channels of absolute time.

For the kind of non-linear/multi-channel work Clint is talking about, the magnetic timeline's advantages would likely be far outweighed by its single-track constraints and inflexibility. Tracks and absolute time have none of these problems.

BTW, Bjørn Melhus makes his work with FCP Legacy. Or at least he did several years ago.
