[Andrew Kimery] "For example, during my first stint in Los Angeles in 2001 a lot of indies, docs, music videos, etc., (pretty much anything that was "budget challenged") was being done on FCP primarily because of cost reasons."

But that was nearly 2 years after it was launched, Andrew.

Some of us had cut literally hundreds of projects on Legacy by that time.

That's pretty much on point.

By the time Legacy worked it's way FULLY into professional edit suites as a "safe bet" - it was a couple of years after THAT. It flew for a LONG time under the radar during it's development phase going through at least 3 major iterations of the code base while the "big time" editors were generally dismissive of it as an "amateurs platform."

Around 3.0 people started taking it seriously. And it was a year or so after THAT that Legacy really making serious noise.

Probably why it all the X hue and cry has always sounded a bit familiar to me. ; )
