    Oliver Peters presents a good case in this article. Factual and objective writing is why I’ve been following Oliver for years.

    How’s that one? I haven’t posted for a while, so I’m a little rusty on links. 🙂

    [Gerry Fraiberg] “Factual and objective writing is why I’ve been following Oliver for years.”

    +10 to this! Thank you for this article, Oliver. Couldn’t agree more.

    Works, thanks for posting this. Kudos Oliver, a good overview of where FCPX fits in your “toolset.”

    I too am perplexed by lack of adoption in local broadcast and news production in the U.S. Speed is paramount to them and their budgets have been decimated by lower and declining ad revenue. Except for big markets, salaries are low – leading to less experienced employees.

    Ronny, Doug – thanks.

    Brett – I would agree. Whatever I feel about X’s suitability for certain projects, I’m unequivocal about its speed in fast turnaround projects like news stories. Whenever I’ve cut onsite on projects (usually corporate conferences and recaps), FCPX is my go-to tool. There’s no comparison in speed to delivery between X and Premiere (or MC) in these situations.

    The basic timeline structure of A-roll with soundbites and VO and then cutaway B-roll shots above is perfectly designed for news packages IMHO.
