    My nephew produces a lot of major commercials and he's a big Final Cut
    Pro user for them. He uses Avid for some movies where Final Cut Pro
    doesn't have necessary functionality, but even for most movies it's
    sufficient. They used to take the P2 cards from the Panasonic studio
    cameras and stick them directly into the Mac Books and start editing
    on-site, until Apple dropped the CardBus slot from the Macs. Finally, in
    June, Panasonic will have a USB reader for P2 cards (AJ-PCD2), but for
    some reason such a device was very difficult to produce, and it's
    ridiculously expensive.

    Some studios do pretty much the same thing only with hard drives pulled
    from a Red camera. The drive is copied into the server (that has
    something like 42 TB on line), and then go to work on the FCP
    workstations. Pretty impressive to see it all go.

    That's because you don't really know any professionals.

    But the big advantage of Final Cut and an older MacBook was that you
    could immediately look at the results out in the field and begin
    editing, which was very useful when you were not shooting in a studio,
    but out in the field.
