3. This release of FCP will most likely drive most professional high end users back to Avid. That's just my opinion but it's also the buzz here at NAB.
1. I never said it is a legacy program.
2. Perhaps not, however, Carnegie Mellon and virtually all the like schools will eventually force the industry towards the newer options.http://www.cmu.edu/computing/softwar...pro/index.htmlhttp://www.cmu.edu/computing/software/all/index.html
3. Unless the trend is being reversed, evidence indicates to the contrary.http://ace-filmeditors.org/blog/2009...y-full-results
In today's economy, the $ will win out. Films aren't being made with million dollar cameras. Heck, we are now seeing major efforts using cell phones.
The old guys, and I am one of them, will buck and buck with our older stuff. Primarily because man is a creature of habit. But our kids won't stand for it faced with technology that defies following in our footsteps.
And for sure, unless we oldies are willing to fund their future, we will be looking for the less expensive way out and hope they are as artistic as we were.
