[Charlie Austin] "Those are all areas where X can definitely use more work/functionality. ganging I'm on the fence about,"

I mostly can't use ganging if it isn’t 50x50. When versioning an online I have to equally get pixel by pixel besides each other. If it is just referencing or you need them to play together, it's better the way you do indeed. As to this realtime play problem, in MC you can forward ten frames rapidly by pressing “2” on the keyboard and both move along. That’s one thing that shines in MC, its standard keyboard layout, the only thing I change when working on it are the next edit-previous edit buttons. It’s so simple and effective that I have that incorporated in Premiere, as some operations are now similar. In FCPX and 7 though I use theirs defaults. I usually try to learn the application way, but in Premiere it works almost perfectly with Avid’s and like I said it is the most effective. I wouldn’t use MC keyboard on FCPX but I could use a lot of things from Avid there, like the user interface rendering of the timeline itself. I mean the square blocks of the clips and how they are displayed, and no it’s not just tracks where you arrange the elements accordingly, I’m talking about when one expands a timeline in MC (like shift+z to you FCP people) you can spot a needle in a haystack, I mean in a glance you actually see single frame bits in a several minute long timeline. I wish FCPX would let me control more the appearance of the timeline and clips, not to behave like MC but to be more effective in displaying its timeline. Like you said, Charlie; FCPX could use more functionality. I know you don't think it's perfect. Should you and other users strive for perfection? Maybe not exactly that, but it wouldn't hurt if we ask for some improvements. The thing is sometimes the inspiration it's right next door, just saying!
