[Pam Picard] "Curious what others might be hearing in the marketplace."

As a post house providing dailies/color/deliverables, we get to see what a lot of different projects — mostly indie features — are using.

It's still almost all Avid and FCP 7. We've seen a couple of short-form projects use Premiere, but no features, nobody even really asking us about it. No features cut in FCP X yet either, although I believe we might have one on the calendar, and people ask us about it every now and then.

For projects edited internally FCP X is now our app of choice. Media Composer and FCP 7 feel archaic. Premiere feels clunky, and the CC licensing model makes it pricey enough that we don't have it on most systems. We've also started using FCP X for prepping deliverables (combining rendered reels out of Resolve with audio to output master files to lay back to tape, etc.). It has some features that make it great for this (e.g. audio roles), it's fast, and I can just set up one output after the next and hit export thanks to its background exporting.
