Mark... I'm with Steve. Why limit yourself to the quick edits?

Now I'm generally editing 4-6 minute tv stories, with up to 2 hours of raw tape, but I'd be anxious to try X for longer, more ambitious projects.

I was recently given a hard drive with 16 hours of P2 footage. I used FCP7 to create timecode files for the producer, but I took all of the footage and created my FCX event, keywording and identifying like crazy, and it's brilliant. It is so easy to find specific clips, and I'm loving the filmstrip viewing more and more.

I'm still afraid of something becoming corrupted or going offline, and I'm creating frequent backups so I don't lose all of my editing.

There are a buttload of improvements they need to make, and I'm still dealing with it's buggy issues, but overall, I'm enjoying using it for everything, and when people watch me edit with it, their it's so much fun to watch their eyes get big!

I'd love to change over our entire shop to X, and enjoy the ride as they add back much of what has been lost with the switch away from FCP7.

I'm gunshy about Apple however. Their unwillingness to "come clean" with their intentions keeps me very leary of their plans for the future. I believe they intended this to be a pro app, but they clearly let things get out of hand.

FCX. She tempts me, abuses me, beats me up, makes me feel worthless, then in the end she comes around, helps me get my work done, gives me hope and I can't stop thinking about her.
