[Bill Davis] "Those "look - wait - then maybe" come back folks are NOT snagging those gigs. Perhaps because with just "look occasionally" and use it now and then - they aren't particularly qualified for them? The guys I see who ARE getting excellent FCP X gigs - are the guys who started learning it 5 and 6 YEARS ago. "

With all due respect Bill, this ain't brain surgery. a NLE is an NLE is an NLE. Any veteran editor can pick up FCPX very quickly and so the notion of not getting a gig just because you aren't a so-called FCPX expert is ridiculous.

Editors are first and foremost storytellers and the technical guru part of our job is neccesary but secondary.

[Bill Davis] "I understand that real editors are NOT "button pushers" as much as "idea flow constructionists" but we've all seen editors approaching X with poor to moderate seat experience - rapidly reach the point of frustrated bitching, because what they REALLY want is to transport their AVID or Premiere cutting styles as closely as possible into X and just leave it at that.

A veteran editor should be highly adaptive to new NLE's. Going from AVID to FCP to Premiere to FCPX is really not that big a leap if you have the basic skills already under your belt.
