[Richard Herd] "The Application (Formerly) Known As Color, then, does two things: (1) some underlying code manipulates picture data; (2) the GUI allows end users to apply the code to data."

Right -- and the media database tracks Color's renders and re-associates FCP's media links to the the graded, rendered files, but still knows about the unprocessed original files.

On the collaboration side, an editorial change in FCP like a new shot in the timeline simply appears in Color, because they are sharing the same basic database that defines the edit. Color knows the shot is new, and once it's graded, the database is updated again and FCP can get at the new media.

Now that FCP X will be a 64-bit multithreaded app with a modern color model and real color management, this one huge architectural re-write of the entire suite is my only wishlist item. Think it's too much to ask?
