Presumably he's jumped ship so he can oversee Apple buying Adobe :)

There's nothing we can't argue about on the FCPX COW Forum

Maybe it means Apple are actually serious about software for creative professionals after all. But everyone's discounted that.

I understand that everything on this forum is done looking through the FCPX peephole, but I would assume that the CTO of Adobe covers a whole lot of technology beyond video editing that would be of interest to Apple to pursue on a many existing and new fronts.

Yes instead of buying the company or intellectual property, they just hire the brains.
I know the CTO isn't hiring the development teams but it is interesting.

I heard Apple looked at the CTO of Avid but when he responded that he was interested in seeing the release of the new Newton, the interview ended.

The guy is a cloud guru from what I read in other articles. iCloud gets revamped?

As far as Avid CTO - the past management of almost 5 years never believed in having a CTO. And when they did have one for a short time, he was laid off in one of the many unfortunate layoffs last year. Maybe the new CEO has a different view on the role of the CTO.

And in case anyone hasn't figured it out yet, there Apple and ProApps folks who came over from Adobe as well as people on the Adobe side who came from Apple. There are also former Avid folks at Apple and Autodesk. And so the world go around.

Yep... the Sr. product manager for FCP X previously worked with/at Avid and Media 100. I guess that explains the default ripple mode in X. ;-)

Keeping in line with the demeanor of this forum, when Apple employees go elsewhere they're spewing their evil spawn to ensure those companies continue to develop and improve Mac compatibility. On the other hand when others come to Apple they are indoctrinated with the Kool Aid.

I say this in jest of course 8>

Of course we know it's just that Randy Ubillos wanted a second opinion on some things. ;)

Adobe has also said they're going to be CTO less from now on.

Gruber's take on the brains they just hired is worth noting:

Way wrong about Flash, but maybe he was just batting for the home team.

This could be great news. Apple pays off the defenders of Flash and soon there is no one left to defend Flash. ;)

SCRI has some information as well on this.

http://scri.com/apple-snares-adobe-cto/

Lynch came to Adobe in 2005 as part of the acquisition of Macromedia. He was responsible for overseeing technology related to cloud, social computing and multi-screen efforts. Lynch had been actively involved in Adobe’s cloud-based productivity Creative Cloud software, another example of the where Lynch could use his knowledge and expertise gained at Adobe to help Apple in its own plans for cloud computing.

He was in Macromedia when they developed Final Cut.
He might be able to put together the best of FCPX and FCP Classic.

I very much doubt he uses either, and the job switch probably deals with neither.

The complaints that he defended Flash are pretty irrelevant. What this does do, according to the reports, is give Apple someone who can bridge the internal bulkheads between hardware and software units. As such this could certainly benefit the ProApps engineers and FCP X going forward. It helps to know where your own hardware is headed. ;-)

Why did Apple hire Adobe CTO Kevin Lynch?
on Mar 20, 2013 at 3:58:41 pm

Interesting short background article on Lynch's hiring by Apple. It connects a few dots.
Includes the Macromedia, Adobe, Flash, Apple connection and mentions Final Cut Pro (from Macromedia) and Ubillos as well.
