[Jeremy Garchow] "That's a rather broad generalization, don't you think? I take my job seriously, and throwing more disconnected tools at me does not make feel any better."

Of course it is! That's would these threads are all about ;-) But the point is not "disconnected" tools, but rather symbiotic tools. Like FC Studio or CS6. The latter still needs work, but it's a good direction. But if you are going that route as a developer, you have to learn how to play well with others. Simply tossing out a new interchange format like FCP X XML, with the attitude that others should support it, does us no favors.

[Jeremy Garchow] "I thought one of the cons of FCPX was it's reliance on third party helpers. Now you are saying that's what people want? Or are you saying, Apple (or any company) must build an NLE, a DAW, a grading system, a compression application, a compositor, and perhaps some sort of media asset manager all as separate entities with various levels of integration and non integration?"

I'm saying Apple should learn to be part of a larger community and take responsibility for those interchange tools. It's a process that served them quite well with FC Studio and helped them compared with Avid. Now they've basically taken over the role of being the proprietary leader. We are all only willing to deal with it because their version of proprietary is somewhat more "open" and "ubiquitous" than that of others.
