Walter -- a nightmare for you and your editors - however - refreshing to see AVID and Adobe working hard to earn and keep FCP 7 refugee's business. We need to output FCP7 timelines as AVID projects for various clients (we produce pieces of shows - they put it all together) It took forever for us to figure out the right formula to Autoduck those projects so AVID would read them. Avid would read the TL files but when it came to AMA linking it wouldn't work about 99 percent of the time. We finally tried trans-coding everything out of FCP7 so Avid would see files in the folders it expects "the AVID way" and it finally worked.

Yes FCP 7 is extraordinarily flexible. I'm working with ABOBE folks who are incredibly responsive and helpful They listen to and - from every indication - respond to feature and bug requests and reports. There's a far better level of confidence that Premiere Pro will get everything "right" than Apple has instilled after 4 versions of FCPX.

Thanks for the play by play of your experience.
