[Joe Marler] ” I can combine multiple media trees from a NAS to a directly-attached RAID, change all the paths, and FCPX File>Relink Files will rapidly scan the entire volume and relink all the files.”
This part I really love between the two.
I get a lot of odd drives from clients and when they tell me its a Premiere project, I have to add at least two days of lead time.
I have had mixed RED, Sony, EVA1, etc… footies in projects and FCPX always avoids the hassle when drives/media get moved.
For me, however, I use link and avoid proxies unless I have a lot of time in my hands and that’s usually feature-length work.

[Tom Sefton] “If this was skimming over the actual 8K red rushes it might be acceptable, but this is 2K ProRes LT proxies – created in media encoder and stored in the root project folder called PROXIES.”
If you’re setup correctly, Premiere can be just as fast as fcpx. I’ve worked in fcpx enough to know what the real speed is and I can say that my workflow in Premiere is equally fast. Premiere is different than fcpx though in that you must have your system optimized.
All media cache needs to be on a separate drive from your main media and edit friendly proxies are essential.
What you’re describing is not normal.
[Tom Sefton] “Skim your play head around the timeline in premiere – it sticks to random sections like (molasses) and when you hit space bar it thinks. “
Nope, it doesn’t stick at all if your system is operating correctly. It’s like butter with cineform, pro res or dnxhd media.
Perhaps it would be more helpful if you’d post your system specs. There’s definitely a problem in your setup.

I think its safe to say that we will all have different performance issues with whatever it is we are using.
My next big project will be Premiere on a new Mac Pro.
I should have some positive results from that.
On a different note, FCPX exporting RED 8K to ProRes444 on that VEGA II system is like butter ☺
No editing just export.

I feel your pain. Working in PPro coming from FCP X is agonizing except for a few features that I really like in PPro. I am on a project now having to use it.
