    So if you search for “Sequence” in the keyboard commands window you’ll find an attribute called “SequenceSettings”. If you assign it to something you’ll then find out if just goes to your Project Settings. Guess somebody couldn’t let go of those poor little sequences.

    I just can’t really wrap my head around why they changed the names of everything at all. Like I think i understand what apple is trying to do ovrall…But why the need to change a name It just makes things confusing. Why can’t in’s and outs still be called in’s and outs? they keyboard shortcut is the same. It’s just kinda confusing.

    I think for most of us this is causing huge amounts of unnecessary frustration – but then we know what we are doing and we’ve been doing it for a while. I can’t help thinking the new language is aimed at the other audience, hence the fact that it’s been rendered (someone’s idea of) less “technical”.

    Right. It seems like they’ve tried to build a universal edit program that anyone can use…from Novice to pro. There’s stuff underneath all of it that’s definately pro stuff, but it’s surely wrapped in a consumer package. That concept makes total sense to me in a future outlook sort of way. Like the 8th graders who will be learning this app today (who probly already know how to use the damn thing better than us) will be the one’s who are media professionals 15 years from now. But it just doesn’t make sense to me to change the language. Like in the help it’ll adress what something use to be called in old FCP. That makes so little sense. Why change the language for US, and not just change it for them, who don’t know anything about the stuff yet.
