It is not a scientific comparison by any stretch of the imagination, but what happens when FCP7 and FCPX go head to head in an editing speed test? A slow news day in the FCP world? Maybe but at least it's not another blog post with the same old FCPX rehash.
A sensational headline yes but there is a message behind the video. Which NLE will win in the simple test? Take some HDSLR H264 footage convert/ingest, edit and then upload to Vimeo. We suspect most people will 'skim' through the video to the outcome so we won't spoil it by publishing the result!
As the participants state, it's hardly a scientific test but we were surprised at the timings. What would be interesting is a scientific test between the two apps with actual percentage speed increases.
