I got the survey yesterday, too. My hands were sore after typing so much. Favorite thing I said was "We don't produce thumbnails, so why do we have to edit with them?"

I made comments about needing real tracks for audio, dual viewers, deck control, frame accurate external monitoring (with no delay, etc), and a more customizable interface overall. Oh yeah, and a default 'magnetic timeline off' preference. I explained that sometimes you don't want your whole sequence timing to slip off, especially when you're editing 30 second spots. I also mentioned the need to fully separate projects (or events, ugh) so that competing clients don't accidentally see each other's work. Which reminds me, I mentioned my annoyance with the events/projects name change, because it IS annoying. I also mentioned the need to not rely on 3rd parties to fill in things like opening old projects, because if Apple updates FCPX it could break functionality until the 3rd party catches up, which could be disastrous in a high pressure environment.

I think everybody's covered it, but lots of hardware questions, lots of 'what else do you own', 'what do you do', 'what have you used' questions. I feel like there's some renewed interest in getting FCPX mainstream in our world, not just creative enthusiasts. Making a reach, I'd suspect there's a new mac pro coming.
