The Basics of X

Thank you first for the answers to my last thread. That answered those questions perfectly.

I'm creating this just in case someone else runs into my situation, they might find the answers easily.

I've read horror stories about X. I'm told it's nothing like earlier FCP.

I'm very basic in my editing. I drag clips to the timeline and cut as needed.

Occasionally I place one clip on top of another.

The audio of course I cut, paste and move a lot.

But, that's basically how I edit. It's not much more than if I took two pieces of film and spliced them.

Is accomplishing this much harder in X than it was before?

Is adding simple color corrections still as easy?

I never delved deep into FCP 6, what I do is fairly easy stuff. Will it take me long to figure X out for these simple things? When I first bought FCP 4 it took me a few hours to create my first little slide show (I didn't have a camcorder at the time), so I'm fairly quick in picking stuff up. But, the horrors I've heard about X have me spooked.

Thanks Again: George
