[Rich Rubasch] "nd although we got the new trackpad we haven't really used them much yet.

This was always fascinating to me.

If my 2011 MacPro era GPU hadn’t been too weak to run the then brand new FCP X - I wouldn’t have had to learn the software on my laptop.

But because I did - I became a trackpad oriented FCP X editor from day one - and that completely unplanned change is what totally broke my decades of mouse reliance.

Now I literally haven’t touched a mouse in years - and the idea of reaching over to a mouse unit and breaking my “home row” hand position to do anything seems really strange.

Looking back it was a major shift in my expectations of how editing happens.

And really nice that with an external trackpad - my editing mechanics do not change - no matter what type system I’m driving.

For me it was one of my careers “happy accidents.”
