Well, it's easy to say he switched, but the real proof is whether he can make headway in using his now-preferred NLE on actual jobs that aren't projects totally under his control. Especially in series work - you use what the team has decided on.

It's also 8 years at this point and we are still pointing to a very small number of "conversions." Yes, I know there are large installation here and there. OTOH, there are quite a large number of post suppliers in all of the major markets around the world who readily field 80 to 100 Avid systems on long-form project rentals. And...those are often running on older hardware and software versions. FCPX has yet to come up with a competitive collaboration solution to challenge this.

So the story is nice - and thanks for posting - but isn't it just another drop in the ocean?

BTW - some of the selling points in his video are meh. For example, compound clips are not unique to FCPX. You can do the exact same thing in Premiere using nested sequences. Works the same way, except that the timing isn't messed up in the main sequence if you change the timing within the nest, which would be the case with the magnetic timeline and compounds in FCPX.
