From your original post it seemed that you thought there was some death-lock that X would put on 7. That was my response. Hey, I totally get that FCP X won't cut it for broadcast, especially if it breaks 3rd party stuff like it would for you. I'd never try to do the stuff I've done for Discovery on FCP X. Can't be done as easily as with 7 - would be a MAJOR pain in the as trying. And as you alluded - time is money.

Just thought it might be worth a $100 drive to poke around and realize that there could be something to gain having FCP X around. It has the one of the best/easiest keyers I've ever used, does work with Resolve (though I do prefer Color as well), and you can digitize/print to tape via the BM software. (I guess not having my Blackmagic stuff break didn't put me right off it.) Sound mixing is the next big thing they need to address. X is amazing for web content/file based delivery without BM, though.

And yes, I still love 7, but I have come to realize that when X is ready, it really will blow 7 away with its ease and speed.

I'm sure you'll try it at some point, so when you do all the best!
