Full assessment: FCPX ruined my June 2011. I still edit a weekly TV show in FCP 7 (XDCam, have a great system down, and wouldn't do it in X if they made me). Really digging PP CS6 for future, especially long form, custom, and DSLR based projects.

But for this type of project, mixing lots of moving stills, need for good, clean, but not too original titles, a ton of different video formats and lots of retiming, music, basic audio cleanup, <30 minutes long and a need for Fast exports, X, even for my first real project on it, was by far faster. My only retraining was a quick crash course (to relearn the silly new X terminology and remap my shortcuts).

Also, we won the National competitions out of 600 teams with this presentation, so I guess the video looked good enough, too. Definitely will be the fastest solution for these types of projects.
