[Lance Bachelder] "Hilarious - you just proved my point - the idiotic way you have to noodle around to find sync. I stand by my statement - it's garbage and has no business being in the same suite as Photoshop and After effects."

See, Lance, this is why your statements betray an ironic bent in your need to validate your chosen NLE software from a mega corporation.

Because you follow it up with this:

[Lance Bachelder] "Why should anyone have to "dig deep" to find things that are plane as day in Vegas, FCP7 or Avid.? And yes I do miss sync indicators in FCPX and hope they're added soon."

The cognitive dissonance is staggering! (edit: and it's "plain as day").

[Lance Bachelder] "the list of missing and poorly thought features in Premiere is endless and not worth any more of my time"

Still no specifics, tisk tisk. Perhaps you have a point, perhaps not. But so far, your biggest argument has been "Premier's sync indicators aren't easy to find." Hey, fair enough. But then FCPX doesn't have all.

At least Erink Lindahl gave a specific, one that I agree needs to be addressed:

[Erik Lindahl] "Exporting of timelines in PrPro is quite bad compared to FCP (even FCPX from the little experience I have of it). The human interaction before you can actually achieve a batch-export is far from optimal. This could be part of the "more clicks than I'm used to" phenomenon. Why on earth Adobe hasn't just implemented an AE-like export in PrPro is beyond me."

But, then again, neither does FCPX without having to go through the "clunky" interface of Compressor, one whose output leaves a lot to be desired (I'm often tasked with churning out the occasional DVD via Encore/Media Encoder for associates who are unhappy with the MPEG2 output of Compressor), and an interface that hasn't changed since the early '00s.
