given the mass adoption (running dangerously close to a whole 50% of the FCP install base three years later) and the startling rate of updates running at around once per year for cringeworthy level file format rollbacks to the FCP7 model, that occupied the last two years...

then I say yes sir. (the general idea here is to poke a dead fire for controversy right?)

that said tons of people are doing cracking stuff with it? and we are dangerously close to hearing about a warners lot putting out a will smith film off the back of it?
That has to make mad reading you'd think. Off the shelf iMacs and X with redundant thunderbolt drives handling a hundred million of hollywoods cash there.
that would be FCPX canonised.

Also Scott Simmons himself now fancies it for a months long project:

Surely the broader narrative is that we need to set ourselves to killing avid all over again, as once, a decade ago, we marshalled to with FCP classic. It's still the same avid guys sitting there talking about a hamburger menu, using horrible keyframes, no disabled clips, stupid project settings, with ridiculously over engineered trim modes they talk about and never use.

Avid is a fifty year old scrabbling around begging guild protection by being continuously and stupidly irritating to use.

Pick X, premiere, lightworks or resolve, but avid must surely be finally driven off the cliff. It is the neverending worst. promo producer/editor.grading/motion graphics
