[Sean Thomas] "No absolutely nothing changed in post. The only thing that happened was that Apple put out a new app and everyone freaked out. You would think that all installations of FCP7 were "raptured" from Macs all over the world."

It sounds like FCPX is a good fit for your workflows, so I'm really happy that you've found a tool that works well for you.

Not everyone is so lucky. With FCPX, Apple kind of fired some of their most vocal customers by ignoring their workflow requirements.

Off the forums, a lot of these same people have been very calmly doing their work now with FCP7, but the software is EOL and there is no future in that, so everyone is also considering their options to move forward. A lot of people are just upset that they can't currently continue with Apple after relying on them for a decade.

[Sean Thomas] "I like the comment that I read elsewhere: FCP7, Avid, Premier are examples of what editing has been like for the past 10 years. FCP X is what editing is going to be like for the next 10 years. Most people who complain about FCP X have NEVER touched it. I know at leat 5 editors who just spew bad info from the web as their opinion about FCP X and they've never used it."

Likewise, it seems a lot of pro-FCPX arguments are made by editors coming from FCP7, without trying Premiere Pro and Media Composer.

Like Michael, I am sincerely curious. You've said that FCPX is faster -- but faster than what, and faster how? What specific features or design changes are speeding up your workflow?
