[Herb Sevush] "Many other people are put off by lines like "it's 10 times faster" which would indicate that you could do a weeks work in a single afternoon. I agree that hearing someone detail how he saved a full day out of a five day schedule is a lot more effective."


I don't particularly care about keystroke counting. Some things may take more, some things may take less.

I also don't care about "feels faster" -- I only care about actually faster.

Craig is quantifying a 20% schedule improvement. He's (presumably) quite experienced and knows how long a job should take. If he estimates completion in five days and finds he can get it done in four, I'm listening!

Rather than considering the time differences for performing specific tasks, I'm more interested in understanding the time differences for the general phases of editorial: ingest, logging/organizing, rough cut, fine cut, revisions, audio, color, effects, finishing, re-versioning, output.

Personally, there are pieces of each of the major NLEs that I'd like to cherry pick for each of these buckets to form my perfect and beautiful Franken-editor -- and I think it would end up being pretty heavily influenced by FCPX.
