[Oliver Peters] "Right now the sweet spot tends to be short-form projects"

PS: I do believe I'm starting to see a divide in where the NLEs are going based on a lot of things I've seen posted here and in other places over the past 6 months. I think that in general, film editors, broadcast TV stations and post facilities will likely trend back to either Avid or maybe over to Premiere Pro. I think companies with in-house "creative" post operations (like ad agencies, media marketing companies - the sort of model typified by @Radical Media) may very well trend over to FCP X.

I realize a number of folks here have posted about cutting docs and TV shows on FCP X, but I really believe that's an extreme exception for this kind of work. There may be some producer/director/shooter-types doing it, but I simply can't envision too many experienced editors working in these genres adopting FCP X for this type of work. There's just too much missing and the application is way too unstable at this point in time.
