Click the pic or here for Apple’s answers. I think it’s great Apple is posting this information. Yet, the tone leaves something to be desired. From the faq:
The application has impressed many pro editors, and it has also generated a lot of discussion in the pro video community.
If by pro editors Apple is referring to people who get paid to cut shows with time code independent requirements, and if by discussion they mean significant financial and core business decisions for umpteen post houses world wide, then sure, I’ll agree with Apple’s summary of events. Maybe it’s just me, but I have looked far and wide for a professional editor here in North Hollywood who is impressed with FCP-X. And I’ve heard this is an area with significant players and meme leaders in the film and broadcast worlds.
On the other hand, as moderators for both the FCP-L and CML have come down hard on the noise to signal ratio surrounding all the FCP-X whining out there, I will henceforth self moderate my own whine-age. Per this blog’s namesake, I think it’s time for all of us to take a proactive approach to this significant moment in post production history and start offering solutions and near term strategies, not just point out flaws and left-outs in a clearly currently insufficient app.
