[Steve Connor] "The one that suits your personal workflow - end of story!"

I mostly cut corporate stuff and over time I've used Premiere, Media Composer, Sony Vegas, Final Cut 7, Media 100, Edius, and probably a few I've forgotten about. I tried FCPX the day it was released and it was love at first sight.

I sat at the desk and thought Apple must have read my mind. This was exactly the way I wanted an NLE to work. Maybe it didn't do everything I needed yet but I completely understood the magnetic timeline and knew from day one I was never going back to a 'traditional' NLE.

I understand that not every NLE suits every editor's workflow but it still amazes me that after all this time people still seem to take great pleasure in finding FCPX's every flaw and shouting it to the world.

And while this thread may have sparked a little more of that debate, It's great to see that while the original poster may not be able to adapt to FCPX, or adapt FCPX to his way of working, at least he gave it a try.
