New David Pogue article
on Jun 28, 2011 at 2:19:36 am

In case you missed it, David Pogue wrote another article on FCPX, in which he backpedals a bit from the last one:

http://pogue.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/06/24/the-quarrel-over-final-cut-contin...

This one seems a lot more realistic than the last one. He even admits that "Apple blew it"

...Plenty of the new features are clearly intended for pros only — the 64-bit memory support, Auditioning, metadata organizing, resolution independence, color matching and so on...

Yes 64bit memory is great! Auditioning...frankly I don't know what that is. "Metadata Organizing"??? Are they crazy. Shots are organized by Scene/Shot/Take numbers not People, one person/two people, Factories,etc. I'd never get an assembly done if I had things labeled like that. I only work in one codec then transcode if needed(rarely-but I know other people who appreciate this function). Color matching - I'm not a colorist. That's a talent all in itself, like a composer. I dabble with color but when the rubber hits the pavement I leave that to the pros.

Those pro features Pogue mentions are also available in iMovie. Maybe not 64bit. But the metadata is the same engine. Anyhow it's all available in Adobe Premiere Elements for cryin out loud. I think I bought my father in law a copy for christmas for 80 bucks. So if that's what's so pro about FCP X, I guess it's still overpriced by about $220.
