IIRC, Randy Ubillos conceived and prototyped many of the concepts he folded into X while re-writing iMovie.

What would have been the possible value of doing a bunch of seminal thinking about advancing the NLE structure you originally created first for Premiere 1.0 and then FCP Legacy - for a more modern approach to editing - then arbitrarily throwing all that conceptual stuff out?

It would be like any artist doing a series of study drawings for a major painting, then arbitrarily painting something ELSE that used none of the prep.

The fact that quite a few geniuses dubbed X "iMovie Pro" only goes to show how few of them had actual real world experience in conceiving anything genuinely new - and then working long and hard to revise and perfect it.

The people who actually do follow that path generally have a term that describes them.
