" But Apple doesn't care about Pro users anymore"

Downloading now. Next year should be fun with the next round of significant enhancements and hopefully Logic Pro X.

Did you know that every time they update FCPX you can get another 30 free trial. So some people have been able to work for 7 months with the trial version and now they get another month! How generous.

I think that could be nice if you are a student or similar, but I hope any professional using it can afford to fork over the $300 or whatever it costs now. Otherwise you are hardly a pro I suppose

----------

I started using it again after the last update as I was forced over to Premiere to edit my RED footage natively. Now FCX has a better implementation than Premiere has. It takes a bit getting used to, but I have to say Premiere looks so dated when I use it now. Some things are so fast in FCX, other things I haven't got my head around yet. I need to we it more

10.0.6 just came out with a massive amounts of features, so this is nice to see they are improving performance and issues as well.

At this point, all I want is a "library" feature like aperture has so different libraries can exist above events/projects. Having a forced unified library makes no sense. Having an option to use different "libraries" is the answer.

My biggest want is being able to manually assign where projects and render files are stored, regardless of where that device may be.
This demand seems to be popping up recently and I hope it comes in the next major update, and I believe the solution is bringing back sequences and making FCPX similar to the Aperture Library.

The major issue has been the removal of Sequences from FCPX and the separation of Events and Projects. I really think Events and Projects are the same, but Events pertains to family videos and Projects pertains to clients.

FCPX says Projects are FCP7 sequences, and I want to see them restore Sequences (creating a Compound Clip is a FCPX Sequence workaround). Make sequences depended of client projects/family events with the ability to have multiple sequences per project/event such as a wedding video, highlight reel, menu page, etc. I can't stress to Apple enough that the Project Browser Window/Folder should be merged into the Event Browser Window/Folder and Sequences would be found in the dependent client project/family event. This is how FCP7 worked and it worked extremely well having all dependent media and sequences centralized in one location.

Examples:

user/Movies/Client Video Library/Client(s)/Project(s)/Sequence(s), Auto Saves, Original Media, Render Files, Transcoded Media...

Ability to have multiple clients per library, multiple projects per client, and multiple sequences per project. Dependent Auto Saves, Original Media, Rendered Files, Transcoded Media, etc, would be found in the project folder.

user/Movies/Family Video Library/Year(s)/Month(s)/Events(s)/Sequence(s), Auto Saves, Original Media, Render Files, Transcoded Media...

Ability to have multiple years per library, multiple months per year, multiple events per month, and multiple sequences per event. Dependent Auto Saves, Original Media, Rendered Files, Transcoded Media, etc, would be found in the event folder.
