    Not NDA this time – just no pictures in the auditorium. This time, the info that was sequestered last year is now largely public.

    First presentation was an overview of the new FCP X and getting to meet key players on the development team.

    The second session was entirely “hands on” with multiple new MacBook Pros with TouchBars so we could judge for ourselves how FCP X 10.3 works on the coming hardware. Spoiler: It’s wicked responsive.

    I would imagine it is, 10.3 is super fast on my 2008 Mac Pro!

    What was the atmosphere like at the event? Pretty good I would imagine!

    I need some wicked responsiveness… FCPX 10.2 is too sluggish.

    I still wonder though if Apple is doing a presentation about the future of FCPX, why were they so absent from te IBC and the NAB? They seem to not want to have anything to do with the majority of the world’s media professionals. Or are they afraid they will only get people giving them feedback (i.e. complaining)?

    Apple presented a huge FCPX preview twice at this year’s NAB….

    Yes, I heard there was a lot room for attendance and exchange with just the presentation… NOT! People couldn’t even talk about what they’d been presented with…

    They should have launched at NAB. Or better yet, at the IBC so they could have had some feedback on NAB. But I reckon Apple isn’t too keen on communicating with its professional users anymore.

    “I reckon Apple isn’t too keen on communicating with its professional users anymore.”

    I have had quite a long chat with them at IBC, and so have other people I know. So maybe it’s just you, Mike ? (-:

    IBC??? Where are they then? I didn’t find any booth…

    Apple doesn’t do booths at any tradeshows anymore as a corporate policy – this was before Steve passed. They always have a presence at NAB, you just have to know where to look or be a big enough player that they look for you 🙂

    It was at a Vegas premiere that I resolved to become an avid FCPX user.
