Apple Well, this just got interesting. There's been a bit of a backlash over Apple's Final Cut X Pro, which is considered a step down from previous versions by many professional videographers, as they claim it lacks countless features - leading to the nickname 'iMovie Pro'. Former Shake product designer and former Apple employee Ron Brinkmann has now weighed in on the situation. His advice to professionals? Don't rely on companies like Apple.

Really? Actually they aren't saying what you THINK they are saying.

They are saying this is the FUTURE of FCP and that for a lot of people who don't use tape anymore and don't need to import/convert their old projects and don't currently need multi-camera support, then this will be a great product for them.

For the rest of FCP users, including you, this is a very tasty look into the future of what you and/or other pro users will be using.

[quote]Imagine one second that next Microsoft Office version, even heavily redesigned, will lack the ability to load documents made by the previous version. What will you say then? Seriously. [/quote]

What I would say is, IF I used Microsoft products, which I don't, is that is a very cool look at a future version of MS Office and that I'll stick with the old version until the new version is ready. My old version would still be there and usable.

PS: Microsoft has done that time and again already. It is not an "if" about Microsoft. It is an "they've already done that" and here they go again.
