    Well, it’s something… =)

    Thanks for the link Simon.

    The good news is that Automatic Duck’s OMF export (5.0) seems to work perfectly with ProTools despite earlier fears that the magnetic timelime might not translate properly.

    The bad news is that it’s going to cost me an extra $495 for something I had good reason to expect would be available inside FCPX. So that $299 purchase price is now really $299 + $495 and counting – not quite so cheap any more. But at least one of my major worries has been laid to rest.

    This is of course assuming that some competitor doesn’t come up with a $99 version or there’s motive for a “lite” version.

    Boris Transfer FCP is being “actively evaluated” for FCPX:

    Probably not for $99 though 😉

    This points to one thing that will likely happen. As Apple leaves functions to third parties it may encourage alternate solutions. FCPX may become very modal as one pieces together the components from different developers to augment or add features.

    This is a good point, although this initial release is hardly ideal, and many core features need to be added, surely a modular aproach to the application where more specific needs are addressed by third party companys. Leaving the base application as lean as possible….preferably not as lean as it is now though 😉

    Not making any excuses here, just thinking out loud.
