    for arguments sake – is there any issue with the fact that Apple makes a few cents on the dollar, year on year, from professionally loaded desktop hardware?
    And that Apple make barely a shaving of that, again, from pro software sales: please let us break it out for aperture, or FCPX and truly understand it’s lack of significance.

    Bill likes FCPX right?, better, he was informed he could pitch multi-cam to a stall of people: a lot of people have liked a lot of apple software.
    So: who, in their right mind, with business concerns, would trust a company that shows utter disregard for mid-term professional software concerns?

    As in- lets just kill the FCP studio architecture – laugh, and roll out the ripple training guys grinning madly right?

    Anyone who bet on aperture as a professional – is dead in the water.

    Anyone who bet on Color – dead in the water

    Anyone who bet on Shake – dead in the water.

    Anyone who bet on FCP studio – dead in the water.

    what, exactly is the common ground here?
    Who, in their right living mind, would trust the lunatic software mad house that is Apple.Inc again?

    I am being truly serious: Are we nuts?
    Apple kill software the way bad people drown cats.
    In our case – that cat was FCP.

    there are people, and you can hear them, in a jungle, screaming that FCPX is changing reality. Bill is daubed in blue wode.
    mind you – that said, there are no FCPX jobs.

    I honestly wonder why no one gets the fact that we are paid craft and Apple barely check anything.
    Larry Jordan is on record being near entirely ignored in the run up to the FCPX launch.
    That said: Bill is all for everything. ALL OF THIS. he’s on board a million software percent.
    Apple care about as much about editing as they do about tungsten steel grooves.

    that said – quite a lot of other people care quite a great deal about the historical FCP market. La Pugs or that. Some macs having a break. nudge wink.

    paid links and training, nice and cheap and some on here, – they smell flesh. maybe their sign off was a pointless judicial quote, maybe that stopped.

    the point is some of them want what they had. before Apple messed up their plate.

    direct audio:

    “Multicam…I’m just in the final stages of putting this together… this will take you to to the iBook store… it’s just a big four dollars and ninety five cents.”

    my name is Bill Davies.

    [Aindreas Gallagher] “Who, in their right living mind, would trust the lunatic software mad house that is Apple.Inc again?”

    I am 🙂

    [Aindreas Gallagher] “that said, there are no FCPX jobs.”
    If there are no jobs for FCPx than that’s good for you because you don’t have to learn it.

    [Aindreas Gallagher] “I honestly wonder why no one gets the fact that we are paid craft and Apple barely check anything. “
    Because there is not only one reality, but many..

    [Aindreas Gallagher] “Anyone who bet on aperture as a professional – is dead in the water.
    Works fine here

    Anyone who bet on Color – dead in the water
    Blackmagic gives Davinci away for free, why pay for Color? Davinci is much better too.

    Anyone who bet on Shake – dead in the water.
    Never used it, so don’t miss it 🙂

    Anyone who bet on FCP studio – dead in the water.”
    What was the bet?

    [Aindreas Gallagher] “Welcome to the Circus.”
    Thank God you and Bill are the main attractions who make us come back for a good show 🙂

    Happy editing!

    Well I enjoyed reading that. I think there will be some X-jobs, but that is not the point. It’s really hard to trust Apple on their comitment towards the Pros, that much is true here.
    The whole thing reminds me of Google Maps being kicked off the iphone. It took some dudes ending up in the desert with no water and just the iphone to bring back google maps.
    Tech-Companies just listen to the finance-mummy’s boys, not the geeks anymore…

    People who approach their beloved mega-corporation with emotion rather than rationality and imbue to it some kind of epic power that will transcend everything.

    Yes, Gary that’s EXACTLY why I use Apple software.

    I have no issue with it until affects my business, so far it hasn’t. I understand how others have been though

    [Aindreas Gallagher] “Who, in their right living mind, would trust the lunatic software mad house that is Apple.Inc again?

    Me and many others

    [Aindreas Gallagher] “Anyone who bet on aperture as a professional – is dead in the water.”

    I believe Aperture still works

    [Aindreas Gallagher] “I honestly wonder why no one gets the fact that we are paid craft and Apple barely check anything. “

    I’m being paid very nicely for my craft with Apple software thanks, I believe others are too.

    Very entertaining as always, but aren’t you wasting valuable time, where you should be learning Avid?
