Good article. Thanks for posting.

Not being a professional editor, I don't have as much invested in FCP 7 as many others. I've been mostly happy with it, and will continue to use it before likely moving on to something else (other than FCP X) in time. The article helped clarify my thinking.

I'm not mad at Apple, though I must say I'm very disappointed. I just don't need or want a new paradigm. I like the way FCP 7 (and EDIUS before that) works, for the reasons pointed out by the author of the article.

My Excel spreadsheet works pretty much like my Lotus 1-2-3 did back in the 1980s. My Word word-processor works pretty much like WordPerfect did back then. My CADD software works pretty much like it did years ago. Same goes for my music software. Sure, they've all changed in features and sophistication over the years, but there's been no new paradigm for them similar to what FCP X has brought. I don't get it.
