After I wrote my thoughts down above - I suddenly flashed on the (wait for it!) Fig Rig!

Remember that?

Two time Academy Award Wining director Mike Figis wanted to improve on camerawork, so he partnered with Manfrotto to offer a circular gizmo with the idea that it would improve ease of shooting in at least certain situations.

Kinda turned out fewer people than he likely imagined saw his solution as a huge advance.

Not saying a new quasi X-like Browser thingy bolted into other NLEs might not be the big improvement some might think it would be. But as an X editor, I will note that the REASON the Browser works so well in X is because it's not a thing unto itself - it's an ASPECT of a larger scheme that includes the entire RANGE ideas, Keywording, Magnetic Assembly - and more. All integrated into a wholistic thing.

Once upon a time, I was pretty interested in getting some time on a Fig Rig.

The opportunity passed. Oh well.

Just in a musing mood today.
