    With all of the other worries over X, I was slow to realize something that would have been glaringly obvious otherwise. I don’t like the interface. I LIKED the customizability of FCP. It might have been its single best feature. I like a little chaos. I like to put bins and sequences on multiple monitors, slide them around, lay them side by side or put them top to bottom. Sometimes I want one monitor to be all timeline.

    All gone.

    i agree, my typical dual moniter setup is the browser/timeline on one, and my viewer/canvas/sometimes scopes on the other. This is a severe mis use of screen space imo, hopefully in the next update you can undock, and resize.

    Summed up my feelings too. To me, it really takes away all the things that kept me using Final Cut 7. The customization made it feel like we were soul mates. I go elsewhere and I always felt constrained to some degree. When I open up X and play around, immediately I get the sense that we were just spoiled with 6/7…and that feels so wrong.

    Defenders here say it makes sense the way it’s laid out. Like you, I don’t care, I want to be able to create chaos…I know it’s been said to death, but it really feels like they don’t know how today’s editors work…

    [Neil Goodman] “hopefully in the next update you can undock, and resize.”

    This I can see changing. I remember a version of Premiere coming out (2.0?) with locked windows you could only resize while pushing other windows smaller…made it very frustrating and was removed in the next update I believe…
