[Michael Gissing] "But still vaporware"

Absolutely - and even come the end of February I will sit back and wait for others to discover all the things XtoPro may not be able to do. (On day one it won't be able to handle levels or transitions for a start ...)

Automatic Duck, now entirely broken by 10.0.3, had a number of alarmingly significant issues which made it very far from the robust solution that is essential if FCPX is to be taken seriously at the top end.

Robust really is the word here. Rock solid, 100% reliable. Anything less means time wasted, missed deadlines, loss of revenue. Scissors and paste solutions just won't cut it here.

So great, Apple delivered multicam (of a sort, because the audio side doesn't really work yet), and yes they delivered the first tentative move towards monitoring. I can't get really excited about those things because we've known they were coming now for months.

But multicam for me is a pointless bit of window dressing when it's still missing OMF - which FCPX absolutely must have and should have had from the word go.

99% of jobs that I do absolutely require going to ProTools to finish the audio, full stop, no negotiations. Hence no OMF, no FCPX. I can't believe that more people are not kicking up a stink about this as to my mind it's the single most important obstacle - not to say that there aren't others.
