I don't know what Apple needs to prove with these patents. I understand it's big business, but they need to stop being the insecure nerd in the room.

[Shane Ross] "And all the pre-labelling that needs to be done, and assigning roles. that doesn't save time. You need to take time to assign the role, or label the clips. Less time than it takes me to target a track."

I have a bone to pick with this as I find this to be relatively not true. Assigning Roles, especially preassigning Roles saves so much time down the road, and you can do this lickety split wither in the Browser or Project.

I don't think its perfect yet, and there's some audio work that needs to be done, but some of the group features that you can knock out in FCPX pales in comparison to FCP7. It does look and operate complete differently than a track based system. I'm not saying it's better, or for everyone, but it certainly does a really good job at certain group based naming, organizing, and adjusting functions.
