[walter biscardi] "And what if someone wants to open a project to revise it?"

I mentioned elsewhere that this is one of my concerns. Often enough I have clients asking for revisions on projects going back a few years. By then there may be yet another new OS and new Macs here. I don't expect to have any method to open an FCP7 project.

One might interpret

"We never expected anyone to switch editing software in the middle of a project, so project migration was not a priority."

As something that might not be implemented for some time but if it's "not ever" that's going to be a serious problem. This is an example of something we need to know ASAP because we don't want to dig ourselves into a hole. The risk is that a project you start in FCP7 today due to feature necessity may not be retrievable at all in two years short of keeping a Mac and FCP7 alive on one system (for how many years).

If they tend to have an importer eventually (just not know) they should make that clear. All in all, I think Apple's poor communication is a bigger issue the feature sets in an app which most know is not ready for many post workflows.
