I am/was a quite experienced Finale user. It took me half year to
'master' it. Now I'm getting to be quite experienced with LilyPond, too
(after more than a half year).
I think that the most time-consuming process in Lily is tweaking the
output. And tweaking is usually not avoidable. However, if I finish my
plugin for jEdit it will contain a Code Assist that will make tweaking
much faster and easier.
To measure the time I must separate two activities:
Writing the score. - This is usually less than in Finale. One page -
less than one hour. I use the jEdit's plugin's document wizard to set up
the score, and it makes it much faster and error free.
Tweaking the output. - This is always much more than in Finale.
If you have to do something you haven't before it can be very time
I think complex music is much faster with Finale, but LilyPond's nicer
output may worth the time.
And one more: using point-and-click is a must.
One of the worst and hardest things in LilyPond is that you must use
your brain very much, not just your eyes and hands, so you quickly can
