    Good find, very Interesting – we have another “roadmap” of sorts

    Some of the things to make the villagers rejoice

    excerpts
    Here are the bullet points (none of this was demoed):

    Multichannel Audio Editing Tools
    Dual Viewers
    MXF Plug-in Support
    RED camera support

    Dual Viewers is analogous to Source and Record monitors; though Apple stressed that when they implement a feature they try to do it better than it has been done before.

    it needed to convert MXF to QuickTime. In the future, FCP X won’t need to make this conversion.

    RED camera support means that we would not need to convert RED footage to QuickTime, but would be able to edit RED files natively.

    these four would not be the only features released

    I also got a sense they are working on another application to join FCP X, Motion, and Compressor.

    dual viewers is a satisfying climb down. Now all we have to do is beat the magnetic trackless carry on out of them and things might be getting somewhere 😉

    while i’m not a big fan of ol’ magneticy either, i’d really like to see them implement some way to organize roles in the timeline. right now i find it to be a mess. that would help visually organize things for me. hopefully the multi-channel mixer is a step toward that.

    dual-viewers, yes please… like yesterday, please.

    and thanks to larry for pushing apple on getting in and out points to stick.

    10.0.4 seems more stable, so hoping it keeps moving in the right direction. broadcast out on my kona 3 is better, but still not 100%.

    I’m not sure about magnetism but I’d guess Roles will grow features which allow one to display each role on a horizontal plane like a track. I’d describe as a form of virtual tracks.

    That’s exactly what I’ve been hoping and pestering apple about on their feedback page. Hoping the “virtual tracks” could react like buckets that would auto-assign roles as you drop clips into them. This is would be a huge incentive to get me to use the program more – especially with channel assignments.

    [Aindreas Gallagher] “dual viewers is a satisfying climb down. Now all we have to do is beat the magnetic trackless carry on out of them and things might be getting somewhere ;)”

    Yey team!!! I guess it does pay to stick in the fight after all Aidreas.

    If we had listened to Mr. Davis, Craig, and Steve, all of whom (I believe) said a second viewer would never happen, we’d never have gotten anywhere.

    As it stands now, it seems clearer heads at Apple may have suddenly adopted a new strategy they had previously rejected, i.e. that listening to those who may not necessarily agree with them might ultimately be of some value.

    I seriously doubt it, but perhaps some day one of more of the Apple apologists on this forum will come to the realization that theirs is not the only one that holds water? 🙂

    You believe wrong

    As opposed to the “haters” who believe theirs is the only one that does too.

    yeah – that actually sounds ok – also keywords shortcuts on a per project basis: as in more than nine, and attached to the project or event. only having nine shortcuts globally at the app level doesn’t cut it.

    also a much better way to manage projects – just a flat out gui re-think there. tear off tabs or something. also some way of forking the save that doesn’t involve project duplication – those things run into hundreds of megs at the drop of a hat, duplicating like that every time you want to park an edit version is insane.
