[Joseph Owens] "You really only have to unpack an X project in Resolve, which tries to unstack all the decisions that are laying latent to realize just how pell-mell the behind-the-scenes structure is being constructed. Like Lucy stuffing too many pies coming down the assembly line into not enough boxes."

On the contrary, I find the data structure of the FCPX edit to be very elegant.

It's hierarchical, so it's different than traditional, absolute, open timelines, but the parent/child relationships that clips can have to each other encodes a bit of editorial intent in a way that's not possible when the data structure simply places clips in absolute time.
