This is more about Apple than has anything (directly) related to Logic Pro. I have never seen my industry so vitriolic... (I am a senior television editor in NYC by profession.) Apple has shafted their client base by removing Final Cut Pro and replacing it with a severely limited new program called FCPX. All traces of the legacy FCP7 vanished from their website and users were left scratching their heads. http://magazine.creativecow.net/article/final-cut-pro-x-whats-missing-for-some-pros What I am saying is not opinion, it is happening right now and professionals all over are looking long & hard at their FCP suits and projects and coming to term with the fact that Apple has cut out all of the FCP legacy from their users. You can NOT create an OMF or an AAF for audio mixers anymore. You can NOT make an EDL for another platform to conform media to. XML is out the window too, I'm afraid. These are professional standards that Apple has just done away with here. This is huge. Hell, even Conan O'brian actually did a piece on his show on how his Editorial staff hated FCPX... Then article after article, blog after blog, professionals made themselves heard: How could Apple remove the majority of tools from your flagship editing program and change everything about it with no warning? You cannot even open an older version of a Final Cut project in this new version! That's just sheer balls, Apple. Talk about alienating your user-base. And let me be clear that I'm not talking about the scruffy kid who works in a coffee-shop by day and "edits" his self-made movie by night. I am talking about professionals who get paid to work creatively and deliver by a deadline. How can a program call itself "professional" when you cannot access past projects when a client asks you to? (which, as we ALL know, happens all the time.)http://youtu.be/VXepNCs_iZo David Pogue of the NY Times wrote a naive article claiming that the new FCPX did not lose "all of its professional features," but when pressed, admitted that many of the features were not there just now. he eve had the audacity to quibble that EDLs were ancient and un-necessary. How condescending to guys like me who might use our knowledge of timecodes & framerates to solve problems a client might encounter. Pogue got more angry comments than he's ever gotten on any article he has ever written for the Times. He said that, not me. Face it FanBoys, Apple screwed their professional customer base but good here. Miraculously, the next morning, Apple quietly put the older FCP7 support page back on their site. Clearly, they are aware of how angry the industry is at them. But I have to wonder if they'll actually do any backpedalling now. Jobs and Apple are notorious for their arrogance so, perhaps this is what it is... As for me, I work on Avid. It has always been rock-solid and is a workhorse that supports all professional formats and is fast, flexible & intuitive. I truly feel sorry for so many of my friends & clients who are now wondering what to do with all they invested in with Apple's Final Cut. An interesting time indeed.
