[Bill Davis] "Seriously, I remember all the events you are referencing and by the time they appeared, I'd been cutting on FCP for quite a while."

Less than 12 months is quite a while?

The goal posts are moving a bit, Bill. I'm not disagreeing that you started using FCP v1 early or with your personal experiences while using it. I'm disagreeing with your idea that, "Without the market of NON-Filmmaking - FCP Legacy would not have developed into a tool that filmmakers FINALLY got to access for THEIR needs." It doesn't fit. Having a single product that could address multiple market segments was always in Apple's plan. I mean, they had the Oxygen Network as beta testers for FCP v1. Like I said previously, there were a lot of things happening concurrently and it was FCP use in the lower end of the film/TV community that lead to the development of improved tools from Apple that focused on the workflow needs of the film/TV community. It just doesn't make sense that Apple would look at a guy editing corporates with 3/4" or MiniDV and go "You know what he really needs? Cinema Tools!"

I agree with you that FCP's path to success was from the bottom up, not the top down, and there's certainly a wide bottom in the filmmaking community.
