Any thoughts on this? And are people really installing X beside FCP 7 on same system? Any issues with that?

I think he should start offering Avid training now, it's going to be in high demand

seems pretty sensible to me. Apple's modus operandi when they completely rewrite or introduce new software is to come out with something pretty but bare bones and polish it over the next year or so. I'm sure FCPX will become a replacement for FCP7 in time, I just don't know why they discontinued 7...

I was all set to go with the partitioned drives (as per David's eloquent set-up) but after seeing Larry Jordan's thread yesterday on this forum, I opted to go with the installation on same system (as he stated that there has been absolutely no problems).

After firing it up after installation, I couldn't open parts of Final Cut Suite 3 (like compressor and dvd studio). I then found this link http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4722 and made some tweaks.

I've been running it for the past 24 hrs and have had no issues.

Couldn't hurt to put it on a different drive though or partition - who knows down the road.

I downloaded FCPX on my system thinking I was getting a DMG file to install from. I freaked when it automatically installed and I thought it overwrote my FCP 7. Thank God it just put it in the Applications folder. I have both on my system and they both still open and work without issue, well FCP 7 works without issue. FCPX has issues, period!

The guy would be singing a different tune if he actually had deadlines and clients who's work needs to be finished on a piece of software which is suddenly no longer supported or sold.

What Apple should have done is offer the app under a beta program where we all could offer ways for improvement while still offering Studio.

If they just did this everything would be fine.

Its all a little unnerving....not critical though

[eric pautsch] " The guy would be singing a different tune if he actually had deadlines and clients who's work needs to be finished on a piece of software which is suddenly no longer supported or sold."

Agreed wholeheartedly. (And I'd like to add is still 32 bit)

He and several others that are quoted regularly
on here are with all due respect, out of touch.

I'm not going to trust any of the "professional" apple shills, sorry.

I look at it like this; There's a reason you won't find DEA agents
arguing that the war on drugs is BS, cause that's how they keep
their families fed. Same thing with a lot of these trainers...

How can they badmouth the product that they write training for?

Agreed, the "features" were incredibly vague where the faults are quite specific

Andrew .... you nailed it. He's an apologist, a shill .... full of Apple flavored Kool-Aid. FCP-ex was under tight wraps up to release, but Larry seem to have had regular conversations with the development team.

Sorry .... it's like asking Bono to write a review of Spider-Man.

My thought is this is from someone with a financial relationship with apple. Not exactly unbiased.

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.
