    Apparently the magnetic timeline is so onerous to these users that not only are they moving to Premiere, but also divesting themselves of Apple hardware and moving to Windows-based workstations.

    How does this bode for Apple? Will this cause a shift of thinking in the ProApps department?

    So where have these figures come from?

    [Gary Huff] “How does this bode for Apple?”

    I doubt they care…as you can see in the post just below this one, they are making a huge profit on the ProApps alone (millions of users)…and it’s a small drop in their overall bucket. iPhones and iPads rule over there. I doubt losing a few people to another NLE, when they still make a big profit, will make them rethink anything.

    [Gary Huff] “Will this cause a shift of thinking in the ProApps department?”

    I doubt it. FCX has it fans, and they outnumber the other NLE users by quite a bit.

    Why does any of this even matter? Use what you want.

    It matters because it could negatively impact sales of the neuMac Pro. Probably at least half of those would have purchased high end Mac Pro hardware, where now that money is instead going to HP, Dell, etc.

    MacPro’s are probably their lowest selling product. Again, iPhones and iPads and even laptops are their bread and butter. I’ll wager they only did the MacPro to placate people…make them think they are still “serious” about the pro market.

    Sounds like tossing numbers around to me

    that is FANTASTIC. I’ve never, you know, actually seen lemmings? why did I never look it up? That was bananas.

    Also, as lemmings go, there’s a warner bros lot with a will smith film planted out there in the water. decent riposte surely.

    But the real question is, what will Apple do about it? Is Siri control over the iWatch of the FCPX interface going to be the killer feature that woos users back to both the NLE and the platform as a whole? Or are those 5,000 eBay’d Mac Pro units going to completely destroy that market?

    That would be an insane amount of time and resources to throw at something they’re not invested in, including building a wholesale new dedicated plant in the US to build them.
