[Chris Harlan] "I guess its how you define flexible. "


Don't get me wrong, fcp7 became very popular for a reason, but it's dated.

Even M100 had multiple open sequences and could do much better things with nests/bins, had real time alpha channels, had far better audio mixing and filters, had a robust codec..... In 1999.

Fcp7 barely has real time alphas today, and they didn't arrive until fcp7.

I maintain that XML is immensely flexible, but fcp7 is not. It is time to move on. There are great things that can be done with data and today's NLEs should reflect that. They are working on it.

[Chris Harlan] "Of course you can. "

Not like you can a lens, or camera. Come on now....

We can call and rent a lens at 10AM and be shooting by 12. It's not the same.

Creative Cloud will change that a bit, though.

[Chris Harlan] "And, it wasn't the only relatively cheep NLE out there. There were many. "

Where are they now?
