Yes, the producer made the decision but not because he only knows FCP X. The main reasons for choosing FCP X were speed, flexibility and cost-efficiency, which he explains in the video. Most of the editors who work on this production already knew FCP X and yes, they are very happy with how things have turned out so far.

The reason why they have finally turned to optimizing their footage was the wrong choice of recording codec. There are known issues with the 50Mbps Mpeg codec of the C300. These issues also occur in other NLEs. After noticing the problems they tested the same footage natively in Avid, with the same results. For their next programs they are going to use a different codec and/or camera, and they are going to edit everything natively in FCP X.

Yes, this is an island in a bigger operation, but it's a start and they have made a huge impression so far. The same thing happened at another major Danish production company that used to be 100% Avid: it started with a few programs in FCP X, and after awhile their management noticed the benefits of this workflow. Now the entire operation is switching to FCP X.
