[Andrew Kimery] "That's kinda the point is it not? When people talk about how much faster their process is using FCPX and question why others are still using FCP7 or clunky old, it-came-from-the-90's Avid MC"

I'm getting existentially sartre style tired of people saying that X is a new form of three times the speed fun. that we somehow don't get. Surely the point is that there are hundreds of thousands of editors who have extensively kicked the tires and walked away. That kind of explains the current scenario.

"Although over the past year the controversy surrounding FCP X has largely died down as the software has improved immensely, most editors still haven’t given it a fair shot and have either stuck with FCP 7, moved to Premiere Pro, or in some rare cases have gone back to Avid."

its the not given it a fair shot part that has to stop - a lot of us have extensively tested it. The idea that we should undergo some six month trip into the jungle where we forget every other editing system, all the understood rationale, and emerge from the brush singing FCPX is completely ludicrous.

that was never going to happen.

gigantic numbers of reasoned people, FCP people for god's sake, from experience, do not agree with it as an editor system.
I'm no great shakes but I personally don't agree with it.
it is not the fcp of ten years ago in the wings waiting to swoop in. it just isn't. There isn't a single bloody job in london for it. And london is heaving with editing jobs across all levels.
the problem is that it is what it is. it is very unlikely that there are the engineering resources available to radically reshape it, and ginormous numbers of editors have near completely written it off. hundred million dollar movie or no.

there is no seismic shift coming. it's too esoteric a system. And it just took them a year to come up with a library container. FCPX relative to any major market share shot its bolt with 10.1 promo producer/editor.grading/motion graphics
