Mark Dobson:I think I can't get used to the paradigm of having only one storyline that rules them all.
Again: Is it possible to "domesticate" this timeline-editing in FCPX or would I have to change how I edit?


You know FCPX works without fixed tracks and with a dynamic timeline, and that's the way it will stay. If you say from the start that you are absolutely not willing to accept or learn this way of working I don't think you should waste your time trying to find ways to work around it. Just use a track-based NLE instead.

But when you accept it as it is I think you will find FCPX particularly effective. Even some of our most experienced editors have been cursing like hell when they did their first real project in FCPX. Today I'm sure none of them would like to go back to a track-based NLE. Once you get used to working with it and not against it editing in FCPX is a breeze.
