[David Roth Weiss] "Thankfully, much of the overstated hyperbole and rhetoric about FCPX has indeed tempered somewhat over the last few months. However, hugely overblown and cliched terms like "transformative" and "groundbreaking" were being bandied about here quite flippantly for months after the initial June 21st release of FCPX. "

To counter the equally overblown and cliched terms like "non-professional" 'utter crap" and "a total disaster" that were being flung at it during round one - when none of us had the foggiest clue about the actual nature of the software.

Remember the long thread about how so many folks came away from all the applause and oohs and aahs at the SUPERMEET silently AGAST about it? Why? Turns out it was a lot more complex than anyone suspected at that point, and most of those who dissed it didn't have much clue how it actually worked. They just reacted to what was missing and different and gave absolutely no weight to what might have been useful or even better about it.

That negative view was also "being bandied about quite flippantly" for months after the release.

If we're to take to task the cheerleaders (holding up my hand) then shouldn't we also take to task the blind naysayers?

Turns out this was a more complex plan than all of us suspected.

And so it goes.
