Actually Catalyst Edit is a lot like Vegas brought over to OS X. Right now it’s simplified and designed for shooters and producers as sort of a lightweight field editor. Kind of a “pre-editor”. However, it’s optimized for Sony 4K and raw. Down the road, who knows? It’s also geared towards touch, but for now MS Surface only.
Can I just ask why anybody would think that knob icons are a good idea anymore? I hate them so much. Using a tablet and pen, I never get useful control over things like pan with those godforsaken knobs. Terrible skeuomorphism.
Used the ACE, but with a keyboard mostly. It had some pretty neat stuff you could do with nested edits and other advanced things. And I used to embed signal system commands to D2 VTR’s in edits. Hex code. lol. But it was always derided by CMX guys. Which I edited on after before & after the ACE.
