climbing the rickety ladder that is Final Cut X

After half a day spent negotiating the vagaries of Final Cut X there are good bits and bad bits. Apple are clearly addressing the professional connectivity of their latest editing software, though I feel there is still a way to go.

But some features are excellent - like background rendering. No longer waiting for five minutes as the software locks you out to rend a clip. And so far the magnetic timeline, or storyline as they now call it, is a plus - snapping taken to its logical conclusion.

Working, as I am without a mouse or dedicated keyboard, I'm finding it rather slow and imprecise, and the new terminology is taking some getting used to. but the worst thing so far is a bug where by all the images of the clips disappear, making it really difficult to navigate.
