[Neil Goodman] "Steve's presentation was well done and informative for people new to X but I feel like someone's been giving this demo once every couple months for the last few years."

Perhaps that's indicative to how many new people need to hear it.

Another way to look at it, since these are less commonly used functions for some FCPX editors they can easily be forgotten so the reminders help.

Consider that an Avid editor can have as much as 28 years experience on Avid and many have more 7 years experience. Premiere in it's Pro incarnation about 15 years (give or take). Final Cut Pro (legacy) about 11 years and users stayed with it beyond that.

On the other hand FCPX is 7 years at most for those who were their from the beginning. So there are many FCPX editors who's ability to recall some of these may not be up to the level of the more experienced editors on other NLEs.

To put it another way, there may be many more Avid users and even Premiere Pro and FCP Legacy users who have important less common functions seared into their brains than FCPX editors and this point. These "reminders" from Steve are still useful to an FCPX editors whereas a similar dive into Avid would be unnecessary for a bigger plurality of Avid editors.

It's not so much that it's just for people new to FCPX but more FCPX don't have such things burned into them like Avid, etc editors.
