[Bill Davis] "As much as I love the debate here,, this forum has a bit of a reputation for trashing X, so the eyeballs of the active FCP X user community have largely moved elsewhere."

I agree and disagree at the same time. I do feel that FCP X needs some improvement, it is not perfect, then again no NLE is. I nearly threw up when it first came on the scene but decided to give it a try. Started in around version 10.0.6, since then it has become a very good competitor.

A few basic features in FCP 7 and versions prior are still missing but I have found a few workarounds. I also don't mind adding some other applications to the mix. I have 7 to X, Media Info and a few other tools in the box.

I use Motion to create custom built effects, generators and so on. One example was making a fade in / out effect. This way I can have a clip fade in, fade out or both by applying the effect built in Motion. Saves time and key frames. Just a couple of adjustments and presto!

I find that being able to create custom built stuff from scratch can save time and money. Besides it is fun, the most important aspect. The money saved can be used for a new set of lens, a lighting kit or more storage. That is my take on it.
