I wanted to take a minute and correct a misconception from my Cow articles regarding "Professional Use" of FCPX.
I have always held the view of professional editors has those that make their living working in a field, to me that has always been
the hardware based solutions that allow users access to the widest variety of workflows because of the add-ons one uses.
This is my rather narrow view of the modern state of editing, even for professional users.
There are many editors that do not use external hardware. TV News producers or Wedding Photographers would both be good examples of existing workflows that do not need to have external hardware as part of their productions.
While it may not be the way I work, is was erroneous of me to assume that my definition of professional was the only one.
