As flexible as Final Cut is, the Browser continues to lag behind in its development, particularly when it comes to working with stills. Unlike Aperture, there's no way to scale the icon size of your assets. I find myself having to double click nearly every photograph so that I can get a larger look in the Viewer. It's an exhausting process. What's more painful is knowing that Apple already employs the technology that can quickly improve this problem. The browser desperately needs two things:
- Quick Look. With a simple press of the space bar, you can see a preview of an image without having to open it.
- Coverflow. Imagine the power of a FCP browser with the ability to pan through images in semi-3D.
Apple, are you listening? My wrist is getting tired.
