[Craig Seeman] "FCPX forces a rethink and, for a time, one may be slower…. until "the lightbulb goes on…" There's no "lightbulb" for most people switching to the other NLEs because there's only minor changes in circuitry."

In a weird way, cutting mostly in X has made me faster in legacy. ;-) I find myself using shortcuts I didn't really use before I "discovered" them in X. Despite the popular wisdom, and setting aside magnetism, X and 7 work in very similar ways. That said, X lets me work faster. No patching, skimming and clip skimming are the biggies, but certainly not the only reasons. I also ring that it's much easier to layer tons of audio and keep track of it in X. I've built sound beds I wouldn't have kept much simpler in 7 or Pr. I just had to move a project from X to 7. In X, it was... deep, but manageable. In 7? Lets just say that 40+ tracks of audio made up of mostly little 1 second or less SFX is uh... hard to keep track of sometimes... ;-)
