[Marcus Moore] "Exactly, we need organization, but not "tracks" as other NLEs have them. Track information is just another form of metadata. What we need is for Role info to be represented in the timeline."

This is outmoded thinking. Who needs the timeline? This obsession with structure, order of things and hierarchies and stuff is so last-century. The real problem with FCX is that it is not revolutionary enough. It dropped too much of what people were comfortable with and offered something which wasn't actually different enough to warrant changing a whole way of life.

The winner of the edit sweepstakes will be the one who can get rid of the whole timeline/tracks paradigm. Everything should take place in the browser, which is your storyboard-in-waiting. Maybe it (the browser) should be the whole edit, everything optional, nothing written in stone, no gaps, no broken process links.

Edit in the bin.
