"Geared towards video pros"?
Don't think so. They geared it towards video enthusiasts. No pro gives a rats ass about 3D text. It's corny.
Most of the changes is about playing catch up with user requests but many, many stuff hasn't been addressed yet. It's a shame because I heavily invested in FCPX (time spent), and Resolve 12 (also released yesterday) now provides a much more complete and professional package. But... it's a steep learning curve.
