$300 for FC X and $495 for must-have function? You got to be kidding, right?
And what next? Another $300 for old projects support, $500 for XML import/export and $1000 for tape i/o?????
Screw Automatic Duck. Screw Apple for this. My $1299 FCS already does all of this for free!
Apparently you can just throw out FC X (i will not call it Pro, there is nothing Pro about it), get your money back and stick to the FCP, which does everything, that Pro application is supposed to. Without bells and whistles, yes, but who cares about 'em?
Apple just did with Final Cut the same, that they did with QT Pro. They traded Pro for X. Flexibility and power for fancy pants. And thats it. No more Pro products. Xserve and RAID is gone, so now and FCP. I just wonder, when they will stop supporting FCP? A year from now? Or maybe even less?
