[Steve Connor] "So are you saying you can't do absolute time in FCPX?"

I'm saying you can't easily have multiple parallel channels of absolute time without bending over backwards. Clever hacks like Jim Giberti's template attempt to bring some of this flexibility back but it's still a hack. The bottom line is the magnetic timeline is a single track timeline that ripples by default and forces everything outside it to be in temporal relation to it, not the external window. For multi-channel work, there is zero advantage in this.
