[Shane Ross] "Most often right out of school students don't hit the ground editing. They start at other companies doing lower end work and working their way up. So they use the software and tools those companies use."

This would appear to infer that 'learning to edit' with FCX would be an even bigger waste of time (since it does all the organizational legwork for you) so that would be a non-acquired experience, and no matter what cataloguing model a production company bases its server-sharing around, its going to be a cold start for anyone entering the environment.

I liken it to moving into a new house. The dang light switches are in different places everywhere! I especially hate it when the bathroom switch is outside the room. But FCX doesn't even have light switches, it is so simple and helpful -- but you only get illumination when Apple decides you need it and they feel like flipping the switch.

Does anyone (else) here remember SCTV's Ed Grimley (Martin Short) , who never learned how to climb a staircase?
Apple: why bother? anywhere we'd go has escalators. As If.
