[Andrew Kimery] "To riff on this, and I'm not doubting anyone that uses X and credits it with getting them home from work sooner, but I was at the TED presentation at FCPWorks..."

I was specifically thinking about that when I made the comment. I watched it last night and if you watch at about 35 min. in, you see a very elaborate revamp of how media was ingested using a custom capture/consolidate process created by their IT guys. In fact, the presenter pointed out that the way they had wanted to use XML (in a fashion as they had used with FCP 7) didn't actually work the way they'd hoped with X. My feeling at the end, was that all of the editors weren't completely sold on the success of X itself, other than the presenter.

The second part, was that they never actually used a true multi cam workflow with FCP 7, preferring instead to use track-based timeline sync maps. Part of the reason was that the recording devices they had used at the time (BMD Hyperdecks) recorded 16-channels of audio times 12 cameras. Obviously a PITA with 7. When they switched to X they also completely changed the ingest process, which also streamlined the track count. With X, they used the multi cam mode.

So honestly, it seemed to me that the improvements were more a complete change in workflow, rather than the change in one specific tool. Sometimes you really have to go past the story headlines to digest the content ;-)
