[Andrew Richards] ".0.4 updates later there is a lot less for the rank and file to find lacking. There will continue to be a vocal group of spurned FCP7 users who make a living on legacy workflows like tape and film (and yes, those are legacy when virtually all core manufacturer support for them has ended) or who just can't forgive Apple's terrible handling of the FCP7 EOL. After all, there are still people sore with Avid all these years and corporate re-orgs later, and Herb is still bitter about Autodesk's killing of *edit. But then legacy FCP always had its detractors as well. Can't please everyone. The guys making a living off film and tape work have to keep on working and they can't just sit still with FCP7 forever. They've got better alternatives now than ever before.

FCPX still has a lot of room for improvement, but not even one year later it is a viable tool for a great many working editors and apparently even a few facilities.

The best thing about all this is the big three A's can all be installed on the same system, use the same hardware, and work with the same formats, all without breaking the bank. Now if we could just get a new Super Mac to host them on....

Very good summary of where we are at the moment Andrew
