[Jeremy Garchow] "Because you need that music to land exactly at 1:30?

If that music is the constant, it should go in the primary, at least that's how I would work if it made sense."

You're definitely not getting my point.
Because I want one element or another of a story to maintain a fixed position, in no way means I want it to define the constant. It's just A constant, one of many fixed points and segments, like in the editing we always did before FCPX.

[Jeremy Garchow] "The primary is time. Control the primary, you control time.

Which is fundamentally limiting in what should/could be an unrestrictive creative environment. The Primary can be time. But other places above or below can also be fixed in time relative to 0, completely ignoring the Primary as god, with the littlest of evolving on Apple's part.

I simply don't like being limited when it's completely unnecessary. All the goodness of X is there, it's simply better in many, many scenarios. It's a forward move not a retreat.
