FCP X is perfectly capable of doing pro work today in its current form. Please browse the threads in these two FCP X forums and you will already find numerous discussions of how it is being used in professional, demanding environments.

The technology curve is accelerating, so 10 years from now is a very long time. By the yardstick of mainstream pros (Hollywood film and TV editors), FCP "legacy" hasn't been successful either. There are tons of indies and documentaries and some TV cut on FCP 1-7, but as far as studio work, the number of high visibility work done with FCP has been a drop in the bucket compared with Avid.

Avid is hardly gone, Adobe is making a big push and when EditShare finally ports Lightworks to Mac, the picture will shift again. Today, it gets down to a personal decision. Can you do the work? Yes! Will you encounter it within the majority of facilities within the coming years? Unknown.
