[kim krause] "i think it's just a knee jerk reaction by some divas who can't cope with change. i know of people who are still using old avid systems with software from 3 years ago. so whats the big deal with sticking with fcp if it works. only jump to fcpx if it works for you, otherwise stick with what you have..."

The point this misses is that FCP7 really wasn't working all that well for a lot of workflows (due to FCP's old architecture requiring ProRes transcodes for file-based workflows, or slow single-threaded rendering), but people were putting up with these deficiencies because they thought they would be addressed with FCP8.

Since FCPX isn't and won't be the FCP8 many expected, many have lost the incentive to stay with FCP7.
