Hi Oliver

As a senior FCP user I expected Apple to improve a very nice and professional tool (FCP7) instead of bringing something completely different (FCP X). Means recoding and some GUI redesign.
Keeping the proven concept and tool and, maybe, in parallel publishing something else: iMovie Pro for all the people always looking for something new. Would have been the much better way for most of us, including Apple's reputation within the video pro community.
A soon as iMovie Pro would have reached a certain quality, we could have jumped to the other ship, leaving nice but older FCP7 behind...
Will Apple ever learn how to treat pros?
