[Oliver Peters] " Simply tossing out a new interchange format like FCP X XML, with the attitude that others should support it, does us no favors."

Totally. We should be able to use Dynamic Link everywhere.

Oh wait. It's proprietary.

[Oliver Peters] "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."

We've talked about this before. I think Apple develops as much as they need to do and then they SDK the rest.

It allows them more focus, it gives users more options and potentially better support via third party, and Apple gets the benefit of developer feedback.
