Just Went Next store to out Creative Neighbors. They Have a copy there fooling around with, Why is everything Dumbed down so much? does apple think Numbers and quick keys are intimidating? Stuff is literally buried under tons of thing, and so much Order has you depending on Viusal Picture rather that Naming and Logging? Why would they change this much? Now I understand its 1.0 and I curous to see what they do with the future of FCP X. But why would apple tease and put all new features we would love to have in FCP 7 with out a Horrid interface.

The interface is deeper than it looks at first glance, and there's tons of keyword/metadata support there. Some things work very differently; as an FCP 7 editor, it looks like lots of things are missing, but the same ends are generally achievable, often in more convenient ways, with the new toolset.

The only place where it really falls down right now is workflow, with the lack of video I/O and XML/EDL/OMF export. In terms of actual editing, it seems pretty well thought out.

but what about the numerous ingest options, I had to download different plug ins and 3rd party add ons to work with, RED, Eos60, 7d, P2, these workflows are pretty common and even though its 1.0 I find no support for this unacceptable. BUT HEY I CAN TRANSPORT OVER iMOvie projects!!! yippie!

I have to agree. Out of the box, so to speak, the gaps here are unacceptable. Bad Apple!

For the same reason DSLR's have auto-focus and auto-exposure.

I have a system, it has stuff in it, and stuff hooked to it. I have a camera, it can record stuff. I read the manuals, and know how to use this stuff and lots of other stuff too.
You should be suitably impressed...
