So I've been reading a lot of negative feedback on the fcp x and it seems that a lot of the feedback are directed at Apple for supposedly abandoning the pro level and moving down market to the prosumer level with fcp x. Does anybody agree with this? I'd classify myself as a beginner on the way to prosumer so if the above is correct, then this newest software would be the item to get and sounds like it'd suit me just fine. I'm a little hesitant to make the move only because of all the negative feedback out there and it'd be a quite an expensive mistake to make to purchase it only to find out that it doesn't fit my needs. One of my biggest thing is trying to figure out if fcp x will natively work with avchd. I now that iMovie works with avchd but technically, iMovie "works" with it by converting it to a format that iMovie can manage so it's not native. From everything that I've read, it seems that fcp x will work with avchd natively and the other nice thing that I like about it is that it will play nice with iMovie and it can also output to Blu-ray. That is def one thing I don't like about iMovie cosnidering that I'm recording the video on a hd camcorder but after editing, it can only produce a dvd quality image from iDVD. This is my understanding of the workflow so if I'm wrong, please educate me because I'm very interested in getting fcp x but again, don't want to make a $400 mistake (when you include the add-ons). Also, if anybody has any comments as it relates to the Canon HF M41, I'd appreciate your feedback on that camcorder with either iMovie, fcp X, or adobe premiere pro.
