Interesting article about the state of the video industry regarding Apple and video processionals. http://arstechnica.com/apple/news/2...-to-acknowledge-the-pro-industry-and-fast.ars Personally, I thought that apple was moving away from professionals to focus more on the consumer (or prosumer) side of things. Here's one article that seems to confirm my suspensions. Some interesting quotes from the article All in all, with FCPX, apple made a bold statement, but that statement seemed to say that this is an application more geared to prosumers then professionals. Dropping features that professionals need to accomplish their jobs only mean they'll look for another solution. Throw in the persistent rumors that the Mac Pro is nearing or at End of Life certainly exacerbates the situation. I'm not a video professional, but I look on with dismay that apple moves away from a customer sector that that once was so loyal to apple. One could argue that the professional sector is a stable sector if you get entrenched, where as consumers can be rather fickle a bunch.
