[Steve Connor] "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."

Yes and from the hints so far, it looks like it's still a regular, tracked timeline model. I think there's a reason for this. I think this reason is why some editors like myself don't feel comfortable with the magnetic timeline.

[Steve Connor] "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."

Agreed. I think the "fixed lanes" idea is interesting. But I would go further and allow multiple primaries in a "fixed time" window. If they did that, they could keep everything else the same and it would work for me as well as for you.

[Steve Connor] "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."

Yes, but doesn't the tilde key modifier only affect the connected clips attached to the primary clip you're manipulating? Is there a way to make all connected clips stay put if you want? Something like Shift-tilde? That would make a big difference for me.

[Steve Connor] "Whether Apple wants to do it is a whole other question"
