[Craig Seeman] "IF (big IF) your workflow involves moving lots of "layers" (tracks) around and dealing with things like clip collisions, MOST OF THE TIME, FCPX is faster. BUT (big BUT) you still need to know how to keep things in place sometimes."

Its very rare that Im taking a huge chunk of an edit and moving it to later or earlier in the piece. Its mostly extracting a chunk - but filling in that chunk with new material that fills the same amount of time.

And time is everything for me as except for a theatrical trailer - I have to hit exact times, so I'm putting my end card right up to the time I want to hit, and that end card never ever moves while I'm editing. I also have a tendency to make sure my ending will work as intended and then work backwards filling in the rest of the piece. In this situation I have to do alot more work in X, than I would in a traditional NLE.

Where i really find X to be faster is spotting and breaking down footage. Actual timeline editing is about the same in any NLE.
