[Jerry Hofmann] "No doubt there are people that could use FCP X right now. If your delivery is the web, it's a no brainer good choice. If your delivery is anything else, it's questionable... can't view externally.

If you can't view externally for proper color correction, and you can't lay out to tape, and the xml isn't supported by all yet, and there's no way to output a cut list, EDL, or output separate tracks, (though I think that roles are the beginning of this ability), then it's not ready for a lot of people's needs. Most of the national networks still required color corrected broadcast safe tapes. You can't trust a computer display's rendition of the picture. Just doesn't match what that same file would look like on a TV set.

There's a lot to love with FCP X. I'm using it, and I really like it. I'm convinced it edits a lot faster than FCP 7 does, and it logs a TON easier. But I can only use it because I can use Phil Hodgett's X27 software to finish a project back in FCS 2009. As of now, I offline in X, online in 7/Color 1.5/Motion 4. Though I'm looking close at biting the bullet, and running with Smoke. (not for the feint of heart I should add, as it's pricey)"

True, but if you grade in DaVinci then you can at least have a monitor output at the grading stage, which is exactly when you need it. It's not a full solution, but it's a start.

How is X27 working out for you?
