Scott you're right Premiere Pro is not abysmal in and of itself. It's pretty decent software, and, were FCPX not invented, I would be using Premiere Pro happily, dynamic linking into After Effects, etc... However, having become accustomed to the workflow in FCPX, my experience quickly shifting back into Premiere WAS abysmal. Clicking tracks on and off, opening clips in a viewer first, having to import clips like logos and such that I use all the time, it just seems inane to me now. I'm not by any means saying that FCPX and her magnetic timeline are not faulty. They are. But in all, FCPX has and is saving me so much time with new workflows, It makes (for me) other solutions seem antiquated.
