[Simon Ubsdell] "Thinking about this some more - and this is going to start to sound like one of those conversations we used to have two years ago with David L. - I can encode intentions in a conventional NLE that FCP X is unable to encode... It absolutely refuses to encode my actual intention if the two clips are both connected. Conversely in a traditional timeline those kinds of "connections" are being encoded for the simple reason that the "connection point" is time - and not another clip."

It's a nuance, but the traditional timeline doesn't relate the two clips to each other. I think this captures less intent because that original intent would have to be reiterated (not redefined) in some timeline maneuvers to preserve the original implicit relationship between the two clips.

You could do this in FCPX with the Giberti method.
