Most of the time, I edit using FCP X. Occasionally I need to use Premiere because the client wants me to. When the client dictates the NLE, that tells me they'll want all my files so they can change something later and not involve me. I rarely color in FCP X and never color using Premiere. I color using Resolve and it's the last thing I do in the workflow. If I'm using FCP X, I'll export an XML to Resolve. If I'm using Premiere I use a ProRes 4444 master file.

When a project gets passed off to another user, they'll be using a different computer and monitor configuration than me, so no matter what I do color wise, it's always going to look different.
