The Switch

After a decade of editing on Final Cut Pro, I'm right now downloading Premiere for my own system. It feels momentous – even though I've edited on Premiere plenty and will continue to use FCP on some projects for a time. And in many ways they are both the same animal of a timeline-based, non-linear editing platform. But it has me wondering: how much is one's craft affected by the details of these programs? How much would changing to a different line of paintbrush affect a painter? Does knowing more editing systems help an editor better see the craft beyond the tool?
