Well, couldn't tell you because the damn thing doesn't open previous versions' projects. But it's nice eye-candy though.

No no no no, all my biggest fears have come to fruition.

I do. I keep scrubbing on the timeline for fun - it's silky smooth. Also, the inspector is nice. I like it - needs a .1 or .2 update, but we all knew that would be the case.
Gotta learn the quick keys though....

I can definitely see uses for it here at my shop, but I'll continue to have 7.x installed for the foreseeable future.

I have been using FCP since 2003 and this is the biggest step backwards I have seen Apple make to any of their software. It is a glorified version of iMovie. I have spent the last 4 hours playing around and find very little to be impressed by. I do love the background rendering, the instant preview looks for the effects and mostly. the audio tools integrated from Soundtrack. Looks like I will be staying at FCP 7 and wishing for a refund.

Yes, actually - it feels pretty neat so far despite the lack of some basic stuff (XML, EDL and OMF/AAF for starters) that means I won't be able to use it seriously for a while. But thank goodness we've still got:

3 point editing (plus the new "connect" edit mode - nice!);
you can set In/Out points on the fly;
JKL still works;
we've got all those lovely Logic audio plug-ins (fantastic!);
it's fun and it's fast.

Oddly, a lot of the worst predictions came true (including many of mine) but for me it's still quite attractive as a proposition now it's out in the open - and I didn't feel that last week.

I will wait to talk after few renderings, and see how goes up/downscaling, movement interpolation, deinterlacing, keyframing, generators, curves, Rendering options (10b RGB?????),Time-base managing, exporting option....and few other things. Then if iMovie, sorry if FCX does better than FCP, sure I'll go FCX.

[Rafael Amador] "I will wait to talk after few renderings, and see how goes up/downscaling,"

please do!

I'm eager to see if they finally implemented bicubic resizing.

try a 720P to SD downconversion..to really put it to the test

Chris, I have no good monitoring available at this moment, but I think that even without that should be possible to tell if, at least some processes, have been improved.
At the moment I'm downloading.
Thanks God I'm in Spain, with 1.4Mbps.
In Laos would take overnight.
