[David Lawrence] "I would not want a DAW with a magnetic timeline. Would you?"

Not one that functions in the same way as FCPX does at the moment, I use Logic Pro a lot and I'm assuming the new one won't be following the same model.

I still think Apple may come up with something to tempt Editors who much prefer to work the way you do, I would imagine the previously discussed "fixed lanes" idea would be the most obvious. I don't think it would be impossible to implement this, despite your concerns about core data.

The fact you can almost set the "fixed lanes" now as well as the addition of the tilde key modifier which breaks the parent child link, albeit temporarily, means it is possible in theory.

Whether Apple wants to do it is a whole other question

There's nothing we can't argue about on the FCPX COW Forum
