[Walter Soyka] "That said, reel ID metadata -- one of the most fundamental elements of video metadata which NLEs have been correctly tracking for decades -- is critical for interchange, and FCPX isn't quite where FCP7 was on this."

You are totally correct sir.

X after 100 days or so, is lacking in quite a few areas compared to Legacy after 10+ years of solid incremental development.

It's NO CONTEST, really.

And I'll admit that it's lacking in these same areas (and even more) compared to it's primary competitors.

So if those specific capabilities are someone's baseline deal breakers for choice and use criteria, an editor needs to look elsewhere right now.

I suspect, however, that the FCP-X benefit package (astonishing price/performance ratio, file based workflow integration honoring exceptionally robust metadata capabilities, and access to the planetary class engineering resources clearly enabled by being under the wing of the most economically successful company on earth) will help resolve these issues sooner rather than later.

I'm comfortable with this bet.
