[Craig Seeman] "Yes I think there will be small facilities in which a small number of people who may have a prior history of collaboration putting together a few seats... It can also be the corporate entity itself that wants to put together a small workgroup for in house work. It may even be the small in house work group "let go" and decide to replicate that on their own."

But in all these cases, if access to capital or startup cost is the determining factor as you outlined in your previous post, Creative Cloud wins, not FCPX.

Even with perpetual licensing, if you need PS, AI, and AE, you get Pr for free and FCPX would be an additional cost.

[Craig Seeman] "Having spent a good portion of my life editing in those types of facilities and seeing new ones spring up, this will be a growth point for FCPX."

I do agree with that. FCPX can and will win where it offers the best workflow. It's a good choice for many.

When the price is this low, and the hardware is common across all the major apps, I just don't see how sticker price of the NLE software will be the primary concern for a serious facility of any type or size.

If it were all about price, everyone would use be using Lightworks, right?
