[greg janza] "If FCPX was cross-platform I'd venture to guess that it could be a possibility in the future but since FCPX is locked there's very little chance this will ever happen."

I don't think so. The vast majority of Avid systems in Hollywood are Mac. Yes, there are PC stations, but a good 80-90% of the Avid setups are on Apple machines. FCP Legacy was Mac only, and it really threatened Avid's foothold in Hollywood. Took the town by storm, and caused Avid to wake up and start paying attention to the needs of the editors. FCP 7 was positioning to really make a huge dent...and if they continued with FCP 8 and along the same path, they might have. BUT, they didn't. They dropped it in favor of a larger market.

The platform it was on isn't the issue, it's the interface.
