I think there are a few people on here who need to rethink their 'Apple doesn't care about the pro market' mantras.

Legacy - solved (via a $9.99 app)
Multicam - solved (and IMPROVED ON - the multiple takes thing is mind-blowing)
Relinking - solved

The enthusiastic adoption of X by plug-in makers shows the advantages for pros when software gets cheaper and more inclusive. Personally, I don't want to pay $1699 for certain Avid filter sets.

They may have handled the retirement of FCP7 all wrong, but I see nothing but good news for pros in this update - and nothing for the Youtube crowd.

I think it's time we put a lot of this nonsense to bed, and just allow people to decide which platform they want to edit with, or need to use with their clients and facilities.

This debate should no longer be framed as it has been for nine hysterical months - and make no mistake about it, Apple bears the blame for that as much as users.

So... you've already downloaded it and are speaking from personal experience? Please, let's be realistic about this. Let's hear from folks using it.

From the reviews, it appears that Apple might be stepping up, but we need to actually download and use it before proclaiming it's glory. That being said, I hope it's everything we've been asking for.

So true. If this had been 10.0.0, I wonder if this forum would exist?

Even I'm excited about this update -- though I hear Jeremy isn't [link]. ;)

My compliments to the ProApps team for developing and shipping these features.

I'm downloading the update now. I'm looking forward to seeing how 10.0.3 addresses my previous criticisms of FCPX, and if FCPX can fit better in my workflow than it did last June and last September.

Unfortunately for Apple, even if the update is perfect, it won't immediately reverse the damage they caused themselves seven months ago. I'm keeping my Macs, but I just accepted delivery on my order for four new HP desktops for rendering this morning. If I had made that order a year ago, they would have been Mac Pros. I may be a small fish, but there have been a lot of us small fish thinking along these lines for the better part of a year now.

I always come back to the thought that if Apple could have released FCPX with all these features they would have. If writing software was that easy anyone could do it, right? So it took them until now to get it, hopefully, right.

As soon as I can get it downloaded and installed I have a multicam edit I just started that I can't wait to try out with the new version ....

I do think this all points back to what the "real" problem was/is. Apple's marketing.

Had they said from the get go (SuperMeet), "this is what we'll be getting out the door but over the next year we're going to get you XML, SAN, MultiCam, Broadcast Monitoring" it would have helped. Instead of saying or implying FCP7 to FCPX was impossible, the could have said, "Once the new XML is done, it would be possible with third party development" (and then they could actually talk to the possible third party developers). Just a bit more road map reveal and allowing FCS longer EOL availability to hold people over, would have been a different ballgame.

The grumbles would still be there (who wants to wait through a year or longer gestation period) but knowing that these things would be addressed would have gone a long way to ease the transition.

After this, what would everyone say is still missing from FCPX?

Is there EDL/OMF export now?

I believe you still can't export a proper XML from FCP X that can be opened in FCP 7, Avid or Premiere right? That seems to be one of the big ones. As someone who doesn't use FCP X, I'm still concerned about working with outside suppliers for colour grading, online and audio.

There's technically nothing "proper" about FCP 7's XML format -- it's not like it's an officially ratified industry interchange standard. It's just something Apple created and documented and third parties supported. Third parties seem to be stepping up to support FCP X's new XML format as well, though it will clearly take a while for such support to reach the same level. But as someone who regularly writes internal workflow tools that work with FCP 7 XML files, I have to say FCP X's new XML format looks a lot cleaner, which will hopefully encourage more tools to be written.

Interestingly, FCP X 10.0.3 can embed industry-standard CDL data in its XML files now. Resolve can use this to carry over primary color grades, and other grading apps that understand CDL could probably add support for this fairly easily as well.

Not from X itself, but there are now tools for going either direction.

The broadcast monitoring is beta, so let's not get carried away until we see it? Also, can we keyframe color correction now? If not, that's still on the list...

Looks like a very nice update. With the ability to finally get projects out of FCPX, I'm more willing to give it the good 'ole college try.

Now, if Apple will refresh the Mac Pro in an impressive fashion, I think that will be a good statement towards their commitment towards the professional market. They need to at least make an announcement before the end of NAB for it to be useful, though.

I think what we're seeing today is the "mood swing." There's still a lot missing, a lot that needs to be done. I think though people are feeling just a tad bit secure that the reintroduction of features will happen. It's seeing things like Photoshop layers happening again and re-linking as well, one gets a sense that Apple will be putting things back in even if it takes a bit of time.

actually looks decent with the multiclip editor, looks easy to add clips at a ;later time etc.. fix rogue sync etc..

my main thing is with the angle veiwer, how come they didnt just give us the viewer window back full time. Still one ofthe main things keeping me from likeing X is the lack of a dedicated viewer window.

Me too. As is the lack of a Viewer, and the whole new editing paradigm in general. They changed something that didn't need changing, and the new way makes no sense to me.

Nice that they added these options for those who like it. But I can't see myself using it. Although the new Multicam feature looks sweet, and I am jealous of it.

I'm sorry you feel that way Shane. But you're right about the multicam. It's absolutely amazing. There's only one thing it's missing in my opinion, but that's really more of a general note than one specifically related to multicam.

the other main thing is the connected clips and slip slide behavior.. if that became override able so the connected clip doesn't go along for the ride when slide editing, and a dedicated viewer, id probably give it a more serious look. hopefully in 10.4 ;0

Does this mean you have the ability to export out an xml and import this into Color for color grading, and then re-importing the finshed xml back into FCPX? In other words, can I use Apple Color for color grading?

FCP 7 and FCP X do not use the same version of XML and they are incompatible with each other. You have to use Assisted Editing's Xto7 for Final Cut Pro to get back to Color. 7toX gets you from FCP 7 to FCP X. DaVinci Resolve will roundtrip between both versions of FCP.

All great stuff no doubt. Hope these updates keep improving the app for those who use it.

I think the lack of a dedicated viewer is still a bummer. Particularly since multicam uses one - why not have an optional permanant viewer for those that want it? Its a bit of a mind block for me not having one. And there are still too many of those mind blocks for me to get on with X.

Those design decisions I always hated are still there, so whatever happens this isn't going to be the App for me. But I think its cool that its getting better for those that like it.

I can't see them having a "permanent" viewer (IMHO) but I could see, given what multicam is doing, having a gang function which creates a viewer. I think they're more inclined to have it there when you use a feature that needs it and gets out of the way otherwise. Also right now you get the two up when trimming with the mouse but not when trimming with the keyboard. I'd think that's something that might be added down the road as well.

I've done a bit of testing throughout the evening with the various features and, of everything, the Relink feature is HUGE for editing workflow. This finally permits offline-online workflows.

Cut with low-res media files. Dupe the Project and then Relink media to the high-res files. You can have changed the clip name in the Event and when you Relink it asks for the original media file name instead of the changed name. That's great. The only missing feature seems to be that there is no "match exact name", so you have to hunt down the list and find the exact match. Once the first one is found, the rest will also be found.

Clips for the relinked files will be imported into the Event, so if you are using this for offline-online, I recommend creating a new Event and associating the duped Project with that new Event as its default. Otherwise you'll get duplicate clip names in the same Event.

I know. I'm cursed (blessed, I guess) with doing all sorts of work. I've pretty much determined that X is not suitable at this point for long-form work but it might be a valid choice for quick turnaround short form work. I'm for using tools that facilitate a given task. If X ends up being the best choice for a particular task, I'll be in.

That's me too. I'm pretty much over the FCP 8 debacle, and if I can use X to do something, I will. I don't see it being my primary or even secondary tool, but that doesn't mean I won't find some use for it. Plus, I do enjoy just seeing how things tick. I am glad that I'm getting reacquainted with MC, though. Both the platform and myself have matured substantially since I was last onboard. I've also promised myself that I would get all up in Premiere when I have some time. Those two things take priority over X, but I will spend some tie there eventually.

The thing that encourages me about this release are not so much the big things that everyone was expecting, but the tiny bits like match back, re-linking and saving. It means somebody is actually paying attention to things that need to be done. And it means that the choice to use the software is becoming more a matter of taste and preference in editorial approach, than whether or not the software will actually function for you.

Lord, I hope someone is paying attention. It does seem so. And these do seem to be good developments.

Avid we can talk about on another forum. They own the category yet they seem unable to make money. I think they're on their way to that now (but at what cost?)

[Steve Connor] "Fabien Daguerre has also just pointed out on the techniques forum that there is now an autosave folder in the projects folder, this has timestamped versions of your projects as in FCP7, hopefully this means no more days worth of work lost for some people!"

Bingo! Now we're talking. The fundamental issues with project security and stability were conspicuously missing from yesterday's conversation. This addresses at least one of them. That's good!

Is autosave interval definable? If not do you know how often it saves?

It's not an autosave per se, since FCPX saves everything you do anyway. It's more of a disaster recovery. I think I read on Larry Jordan's blog that it's at 15 min increments and I don't think it's adjustable.

Still, 15 min increments is a whole lot better than nothing.
