A Brautigan moment amidst the chaos

Shall I riff on Brautigan?

I like to think (and
the sooner the better!)
of a Final Cut suite
where effect renders
live in full-resolution
in real-time
as extensions
of the raw footage.

I like to think
(right now, please!)
of a timeline
filled with filters and composites
where hard drives
need not store render files
and no more rainbow cursors;
no flowers with spinning blossoms.

I like to think
(it has to be!)
of a Final Cut ecology
where processors are free of their labors
and joined back to art,
returned to our indy flexibility:
the true non-linear edit,
and all watched over
by GPU’s of loving grace.

All a way of saying that I’m waiting for a render to finish so I can start sending the movie out to tape and I can’t WAIT until all this works in real-time.
