[Jeremy Garchow] "That Smoke doc you sent is great, but the starting point is an 8 minute edited sequence"

Sheesh! Why is Smoke even part of this discussion? Smoke is a very advanced finishing system that *can* be used for creative (rough cut) editing. FCP X is creative (rough cut) editing tool that *can* be used for finishing. I see VERY LITTLE overlap. If anything, they are complementary - start on FCP X and add the finesse in Smoke. Seems like potentially an ideal set-up for a larger shop: numerous FCP X stations with a few Smokes. At some point down the road, networked into some viable fashion for effective collaboration. Toss in Resolve and maybe Logic and it could be a strong mix.
