MacDailyNews Take: Funny video.

Now, while 99.99% of Conan’s audience wonder “WTF was that?!” might we suggest that a better use of time would have been for his “editors” to RTFM instead of mindlessly trashing something they’ve obviously not properly explored?

You can’t teach old dogs new tricks, but you can laugh at them as they stomp their paws and threaten to turn blue.

(Keep in mind that in previous lives we went from 3/4-inch to 1-inch A/B roll editing — not to mention MII, Betacam SP, Digital Betacam, etc. — to Avid Media Composers to Final Cut Pro, so we know more than a little something about editing and learning new paradigms.)

The fact is that your old FCP is still there. Take some time and give FCP X a chance. Yes, currently there are issues with FCP X and, yes, they will be addressed – hopefully very quickly.

So, been there, done that. Whine, bitch and moan all you want, but we guarantee that the world will move forward regardless.
