Walter,
We are actually closer in opinion then you might imagine.
My statement should have been "FCP will go away as an Apple Product"
Apple has 40 billion plus in revenue. As someone else has stated here, there are 1 million FCP users (?) so that represents at retail 1 billion to Apple over the course of FCP's lifetime.
If all those updated to a New Super Duper FCP at lets say 300.00 per
(you and I both know that nobody is gonna want to buy it again and will scream hell and high water if there is no cheap upgrade path)
That represents maybe another 300 million to Apple, A lot of money
to most, but not to a 40+ billion dollar a year company.
We are talking about a small niche piece of software that I just don't see Apple putting a lot of resources into.
It is what it is.
Like you mentioned there are other products out there that already do what most are asking for, They just cost more. (But way, way, less than a CMX or Kscope) It would be a smart move for Apple to sell this program, They could even restrict by contract,
it's future development to only run on Apple OS's Thus insuring future sales of their hardware. As far as Apple having employees
who read these forums and such, that may be true but do they
have the experience and knowledge to know what is being talked about
and the ability to effect any change? If you remember years ago
all Avid users railed against Avid and Avid did nothing until
they saw other fingers deep in their rice bowl. Apples FCP rice bowl is not deep enough or strategic enough for them to care, They, for sure, are more interested in making all think they need an IPAD
more than an extra roll of toilet paper in the bathroom.
