[Shawn Miller] "Really, how so? Premiere Pro has a number of blending modes, trackable masks, adjustment layers, fairly decent matte tools, a solid key framing system (for an NLE) and native support for lookup tables. What gives FCPX the edge for compositing? Honestly asking, I had never seen FCPX used for compositing before today (referring to the video that Walter shared earlier).

X has that as well. Some maybe better than Pr, some perhaps not. Pr arguably has more refined key framing, (though X is much better these days) And you need plugins for tracking and LUT's in X. But things like clip skimming (huge timesaver with lots of layers), the ability to adjust relative or absolute transform and effects parameters on groups of clips, Compound clips vs nesting (similar, but different in implementation) etc.

It's not specific feature set vs feature set thing. Pr may win that one. But the X timeline is really well suited to working vertically. In Tim's earlier reply describing compositing vs editing he was specifically not talking about X, but he could have been.

I'm doing some pretty basic compositing in Pr this week and it's maddening. Not because of the feature set, that's fine, but because of the way you need to work, if that makes any sense.
