...as people have been saying ad nauseum. They can co-exist, on the same system, right? If you don't like it, stick with FCS3 for professional work. Worry about FCP X when you feel it's ready for what you want to do.  If you buy another machine, just buy another copy of FCS3 to run on it, sweet. Except you can't.


Final Cut Studio is gone. Color is gone. DVD Studio Pro is gone. FCS is gone. You can't buy it any more, because it's been superseded and is no longer sold. So please drop those arguments about peaceful co-existence of versions, and make sure your original FCS3 disks are in a safe place. Because if you want to buy Final Cut, this is the current version. This is not only the future, it's the present.

Final Cut Studio '09, Mac OS X (10.6.7), Tangent panels, Avid Nitris DX

    Oh, and people who are down on FCP X are not luddites baulking at a paradigm shift, they're people who make their living out of this stuff and have for many years. Any choice of tool in any field involves ongoing trust. It involves the acceptance that, just as with OS9/OS X, there will be pain, that both old and new should exist for a time until people reach a tipping point and commit. Deny them that, they'll move on.
