FCPX Database to get even better

Apple are clearly looking to strengthen the database in FCPX!

Seriously though, come on Apple time for another update

You KNOW that if the update hasn't been released by NAB the big rumor will be Apple discontinuing FCPX and Motion.

Oh no! Not that. It is way past time for an update.

Actually there's no indication that this purchase has anything to do with the OS or any Apple app. The article speculates that it could be to shore up Apple's servers.

I wasn't being entirely serious :)

Yes, because not enough consumers are buying X; iMovie seems good enough and the price is right. Meanwhile no big X breakthrough in pro circles.

So if no update at NAB, possible to think, however paranoid it may sound, that iMovie will get inherit some of the simpler X features, be renamed iMovie Pro and FCPX allowed to drop off the map.

'....it could achieve 54 billion writes per hour at a cost-per-write of 3 nanodollars. "


And that, my friends, is editing a nutshell.

3 nanodollars... sounds like compensation from a CraigsList ad.

But you make it up in volume! The rate above is $162/hr.

Well, except for the BBC News, the Tour de France IBC work, the recent NBC announcement, the Honda Ad, and that pesky major Hollywood movie.

Except for *that stuff* (plus a thousand other pro projects in process all over the world), then yep, no "breakthrough in pro circles" i guess.

; )

I believe that "Big Breakthrough" means the ability to suck my company dry of yearly support since 1996; drop some key hardware support from future scope;and be late for the party in the 4K race, whilst almost shutting itself down due to bad business practices.
Nope I dont think FCPX will ever live up to that legendary status :P

Avid, one of my favorite financial subjects.

They paint a rosy picture here
http://www.nasdaq.com/press-release/avid-announces-fourth-quarter-and-fully...

But this shows Sales Revenue and Gross Revenue declining to a five year low
Net Income is up from the "red" years but looks to be in rapid decline again.

I'm being facetious, Bill. X obviously is going fine, and the lack of constant updates should NOT be a sign it will be abandoned. I probably means simply that they don't see it as a pro-only app to be tweaked every few months; it's working well for the user base. And the constant inflow of third party apps and plug-ins is in some ways the updates everyone is looking for.

I'd be happy with the interface being flattened and de-chromed and some speed improvements.

I still want a built-in closed captioning and transcription function.
And you should, too, even if you don't caption personally. Because if the capability becomes cheaper and easier, yet better in quality, the universe of programming out there at every level becomes easier to keyword search over time, and that's good for everyone.

No, Richard, I mean all the audio translated to text and then keyword searchable.

Regarding this...
[Mark Suszko] "all the audio translated to text"

Speaking as a recovering linguist, "That's science fiction." It is so friggin' hard to do. I won't bore anyone with an analysis, but if that's something interesting to anyone, look up allophonic representation and then consider the alveolar tap and glottal stop as allophones and be amazed at the phonemes they represent. Consider also one more experiment: even if I literally hold my tongue and speak (destroying all the phonemes), the human listener can still parse the semantics. Whoa. A computer analyzes a wave form, but the correspondence between wave form and utterance is extremely tiny. However, I would love to talk with R2D2 and C3PO because that is some cool tech.

:) As Eugene Ionesco said, "Philology leads to calamity!"

Richard,

I know it makes me a total geek, but that was really fun to read.

I appreciate your taking the time to write and post it. As a long time Voiceover guy - It was oddly illuminating in an area I love to just think about.

Thank you.

I'm glad it wasn't boring. And one more bit: if anyone ever wants to fool an AI listening device you can always tap the table when you speak, because the computer cannot know what sound is human speech and what is Walla-Walla. Humans can do that easy, like in crowded rooms. We can simply aim our consciousness at another human and understand what he or she is saying.

In reality, what we find is that human learning is so quick and seamless that we can adapt our speech to a computer's input requirements much easier, like navigating a call center. It can be a funny thing to imagine a room full of people talking to their iPads. :)

There are plenty of things we would like to see, at least those of us on this forum. But I assume the slow progress is just fine for the user base.

I have numerous talented high school students who still hobble along with iMovie. I tell them to save up, or ask their parents for the gift of FCPX -- which they quickly learn in class is what they really want to use.

I assume the total user base of X owners who need XML out to ProTools and other refinements is so small that Apple just doesn't think about it.
