Our company happily uses fcp studio with projects and media mounted via osx file server . We looked at FCPX briefly and went back to work for a year. Could someone much close to X please offer an opinion on the workflow and infrastructure needed to deal with our typical scenario using today's fcpx:
Bob (in his edit suite) works with agency , edits his commercial presses command s then quits for the day.
Andy (upstairs, always in after hours) takes a call saying there is a typo amendment to Bobs project, opens Bobs project, fixes typo, exports a copy for client, presses command save and gets back to his own job.
Three hours later the agency ring up Robert (who is often in at the crack of dawn) asking to revert the typo. Robert opens the project and makes the amend while still on the phone.
Bob gets into work opens his edit and tweaks the grade behind that cool word they were so into yesterday, as he fills out the project time sheet he notices extra work has happened overnight but shows no further interest.
We have been doing this as a team since the sawtooth G4 was current hardware with no sparse disking, media or file transfer, we expect to open , edit and save our video edits as easily as our psd and AE .
I am keen to invest in hardware and learn new methods but it must be toward more efficiency.
I am not clear what to do atm ...what is the advice of the herd?
