And yes, remove attributes is near the top of my list. Not a sexy new feature, but much needed.
One process feature I'd also like to see is keywords show up in Text string searches. If you have a LOT of keywords, then going thru the process of manually checking and unchecking them can be a hassle.
That is my number 1 complaint about FCP X, the feedback needs to be updated to include pdf/jpg/png and MOV
If you would like to send files or movies along with FCPX feedback, just upload them to cloud storage and include a link.
Regarding your perception that Apple doesn't respond to feedback, if you would read through this thread and other comments on fcp.co you will see that there are many folks who have clearly said they have heard from Apple in response to a feedback post.
In the 10.1 update, I have found about a dozen fixes/solutions to very obscure bugs/feature requests that I have made. However, because there are tens of thousands of us FCPX editors I can't say it was my bug report that did it, but as it works with any other company/person, the more feedback they receive on a certain issue, the more attention it will get. So just because you don't get a response doesn't mean that they are not hearing you, more likely you are reporting something that many others are reporting and they are in fact on it.
You can select multiple clips and remove effects or re-set attributes in the inspector. Curious as to how you would like to see this implemented apart from that.
Attributes are more then effects, they are also motion parameters and volume etc.
And your solution of selecting multiple clips only works if they have the same effects.
Having the same Dialogue box that we have Now for pasting attributes (with the checkboxes) but for removal would be very handy.
Couldn't agree more too: one of my main issues.
If I have a range of clips with different effects - or attributes - on them, say some Neat Video here, a bit of Twixtor there, and a Magic Bullet Look on them all: Inspector will order them on different levels, and if for example, I wanted to remove the Look from all of them (maybe changed mind and wanted to add a different one), if there is another attribute or effect on one of the clips that meant the 'Look' is above or below it in Inspector, it won't remove the 'Look' from that clip. Very, very frustrating. We had it simple in FCP7, they went half way with the pasting attributes box in FCPX, but not the whole way of allowing us to remove it!
One other thing I'd like would be a 'reveal affiliated clips' menu option. Something I could also give a key command to. I know we have the ability to use the timeline index for a similar purpose, but it'd be nice to have it back at our finger tips again. A right click menu and a key command would be ace!
One thing I have learned following Apple is that they plan like crazy. They don't react to competitors products and announcements, or do things on a whim. I remember when folks were saying that Apple was irrelevant because they didn't release a netbook. Now netbooks are nowhere and Tablets (and the iPad specifically) are king.
I wouldn't read anything into a delay. It may seem like slowness on our end, but that is just our perspective.
