A recent anecdote involving my wife illustrates a problem with the "FCPX is so awesome" approach to our business.

We recently attended a wedding in which we met a very nice gentleman who told us that his son is just starting out in his career as a video editor/shooter but that he doesn't have a lot of connections yet. My wife is a staff video producer and she hires freelance editors and shooters and so she asked for the son's contact info.

My wife had a phone interview with the son and during the interview, he informed my wife that he prefers working in FCPX. That's all well and good but all of the video work done in-house at her company is within the Adobe environment and so FCPX simply isn't an option for editors. My wife's company operates like many other media companies in that all video work needs to be done within the ecosystem of the company. The work can certainly be done remotely but it makes no sense to have it done in FCPX since the project will eventually go back to the company and a staff editor may revisit the project down the road.

My wife is still going to give this young professional a chance because his portfolio does indicate that he has talent but it'll be his responsibility to put his personal preferences aside and do his best to work in an environment that may not be what he prefers but which is a paid professional gig.
