[Andrew Kimery] "Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see how uploading files for client approval or keeping files online so you don't have to batch capture from tape are workflows exclusive to FCPX. One place I worked at was emailng MPEG1's for approval in '01 and at another they started media managing the FCP projects archival purpose. As you can imagine, it made revisiting old projects significantly easier (especially when many times the changes were just a new logo there and update the date here)."


I freely acknowledge that large TV operations and post houses have had capabilities like this for a long time. At the cost of building out zillion dollar infrastructures and maintaining teams of engineers to keep it all running.

Now anyone can have the same basic capabilities for $299 and the cost of a MacBook Pro.

That's a significant change in paradigm, IMO.

FCP X is clearly not designed to replace a broadcast play out system... at least at this point in it's development!
