I think there's a lot innovation in FCP X....definitely more than in Premiere, and I like Premiere.

Some people don't like the magnetic timeline, but some do, and there's no denying it's an out-of-the-box feature, not something every developer would arrive at. I like auditioning clips. I love the easy way you can mark clips and add them to keyword collections. Love smart collections. Love the skimmer.

None of that is in FCP 7, Premiere or Avid. It all represents a very original solution to editing, not accepting the standard approach that's been common for years (tracks, conventional bins, subclips, etc.).

So yes, I would say FCP X is pretty damn innovative. That doesn't mean it's "better" for everyone (although I do think it's better for raw, creative editing....when the interface doesn't get laggy, that is), but it is indeed full of out-of-the-box solutions to editing problems....
