[Oliver Peters] "The stupid part is that FCP 7 with FC Server works (worked) EXACTLY that way."


And too bad Legacy was welded on to Quicktime - was based on a largely flat-file underpinning - and likely had significant pieces of licensed code peppered throughout it - all of which Apple dumped in the transition to X.

A lot of people would have been very happy if Apple could have simultaneously saved everything while simultanesouly re-building everything in a new and more modern expression.

But providing such absolutely mutually contradictory things at the exact same time is the stuff of dreams, not real-world software development, I'm afraid.

So certain users have lost a whole lot of good - in exchange for the as yet unfulfilled promise of better.

You label it "stupid" and I understand that.

I label it "risky" but also quite possibly "transformative." And I personally like new ideas a whole lot better than I liked the old ones.

There are times for "safe" and times for "bold." Since the new X works well for me already - I like that they took these chances to provide me with an alternative choice.

It's more fun this way!
