    That Color is fixed. Don’t get me wrong, the images look great. The problem is the file management bs. It is so messed up there really is no way to make it worse.

    Here’s what I am doing, for this particular project. My deliverable is color timed shots. There’s a bunch of ’em. The assemble edit will be made next. I’m setting the look as soon as possible.

    So I logged and transferred the P2 and labeled each shot and entered the Scene name. Then I made individual bins for each scene and organized accordingly. Then I made sequences, dumped all the footage into the timeline and send to… color. Of course, I then reset all the folder and file management bs. Color timed and rendered to APR422.

    here’s where it gets stupider! Next scene, new sequence, send to… Color. What happened? I’ll bet you already know this. It auto-saved the new scene as a subfolder in the first scene.

    Now come on Apple! I’m a big boy. I don’t need my hand held via autosave bs. Please don’t try and guess my workflow. I want to decide it. I mean, before anything happened in FCP, I had to set all the FCP scratch disk info anyway, so why couldn’t that info just be sent to… Color also along with the sequence and project?

    Hello? Is anyone listening. (The wide shot above my head diminishing me as I scream to the sky) Anyone? Anyone at all?

    None of that’s going to happen with FCP X, except yuou may have less need to go to Color.

    All the best,

    “You may have less need to go to Color” …

    … because you won’t be able to!

    My guess anyway.

    I’ll be stunned if FCPX 1.0 has any kind of integration with any of the existing apps and if I were into that kind of thing I’d be taking bets right now.

    [Tom Wolsky] “except yuou may have less need to go to Color.”

    And the whole database type file management seems to be changing so even if/when something akin to round tripping happens, it may be a whole new experience (hopefully better managed).

    Round tripping gives me a hang over.

    Hmm, does that mean it’s an intoxicating experience for you?
    For me it’s more like Motion sickness (and Color sickness, etc).

    Ultimately I expect the integration to be much tighter when single uber app or tightly integrated suite. It may not be there out of the gate though especially if it moves towards suite.

    Nicely Said! Puking in the toilet was the imagery I was after.

    I vote for single uber app

    Round tripping: the race to the porcelain altar with the prayer that one doesn’t create a messy path along the way.

    There won’t be round-tripping because there won’t be any other apps. Color is going the way of shake IMO.
