[Glen Hurd] "Very excited for you Jeremy."

Thanks, Glen. How nice of you to be excited for once.

[Glen Hurd] "1. Why are those who disagree with FCP X as a viable product called "haters" when those who support it as excitedly as you do aren't called "the interminably undaunted?" Hater rolls off the tongue though, doesn't it. Heh. I love the word "hater." It represents someone who is so . . . hard to control."

I thought the people who like FCPX are called dumbed down newbie skateboarders that don't know what a sequence is?

[Glen Hurd] "2. Why are you excited by Resolve's 'round-tripping' with XML? The whole point has been to get a product that supports basic broadcast workflows. These involve support for accurate picture monitoring and for the ability to send video and audio out for other specialists. Just getting one of those features doesn't mean the bird is ready to fly. I guess it is exciting to get some progress though."

Hell no it's not ready, but it's proof of concept. If this works, others will too. It means I stick around for a bit and see what happens. I have said over and over again, I simply can't use FCPX for paying work yet, but I'd like to.

[Glen Hurd] "For most of us "haters", audio is still considered something of great importance. Too bad its completely stripped out of the XML project file when going into Resolve. And once it's stripped, I don't see how it gets put back in. "

Color would do weird things to audio too. I'd never use the audio from a Color round trip. I'd simply copy and paste the audio from another sequence, or add the final mix from audio post. If you can't figure out how to get audio back in to a piece, that could be a problem for you.

Also, since FCPX has a really nice stem export, you could do that as well, but whatever no one cares except the interminably undaunted.

[Glen Hurd] "Geesh, I sound so "hater" -ish. I guess I "hate" waiting for basic functionality while watching what looks from the distance like a fire-dance."

Patience is a virtue.

[Glen Hurd] "In other news, Resolve is kicking ass with Media Composer 6 beta - lots of excitement there. And they're supporting more features, too, including PTZR (pan, zoom, tilt, rotate.)"

I hope it's everything you want and more. You are so right, I guess it is exciting to see progress.

And good luck with Windows. Seriously, you're going to need it.
