I my self once had to make the transition between FCP7 to Premiere (when cs5 came out) and I can honestly say I have never looked back. The workflow for me is a lot more intuitive and apart from the clear benefits (FCP is only 32bit) it also integrates amazingly within its own software.

To this day I still however use Soundtrack Pro, (for my sound design) as a Logic Pro user it just clicks with me seamlessly. So, enough on my background, I wanted to post this because when I made the transition is was at times very frustrating, if only I had something like this to help me at the time……….
