[Oliver Peters] "One example would be a feature film. I realize it's been said many times that X may not be ready for a film"

I've edited a feature on it so have others, it wasn't any more problematic than with FCS

[Oliver Peters] "For example, if you use a separate Event for each camera and each shoot day. A 30-day shoot with 3 cameras would generate 90 Events."

I'm curious, why would you have a separate event for each camera?

[Oliver Peters] "As far as Projects, on a feature, you might opt to cut one Project per scene and then combine scenes into Reels and then Reels into the full film. And no, Compound Clips are not a good strategy here. A feature film with a 100 scenes might result in 150-200 Projects (timelines) once you have a few different versions of some of them."

Why aren't compounds a good strategy? Since they have been "fixed" in 10.06 I have been using them as "sequences" with no issues.
