    If you stay within their workflow it is still the most solid NLE. And the trimming functions are without peer. (He covers his head for the incoming fusillade.)

    I don’t see any reason for any fusillade. Although I prefer FCP X above anything else for the work we do, what you say is correct. I hope the relisting is successful for Avid.

    Competition is good. While Avid work has dried up to nothing in my region, I wish them (and my friends who work there) the best of luck. Oh, and I bought a bit of their stock the recently. What the hell, right? 😉

    I take no pleasure in folks losing their livelihood. And competition is a good thing. Without it there’s no reason to innovate.

    Count me in as not being giddy. Hell, I bought V8 when it came out. The more the merrier. X is my main axe, but they all – X, 7, Pr, MC, R11(sort of…) – have their pro’s and cons. 😉

    Plenty of people thought FCPx was dead on arrival, after that initial introduction. It was just shagged out after a prolonged sqauck, after pining for the fjords.

    I think Avid is rethinking their business model.
    Their handling of MC/Symphony and updates/upgrades were probably a large part of their problems. This for a company that really isn’t an NLE company anymore.
    They’re services a small niche and if that’s their objective, they need to make it more profitable.
    One might loosely compare them to what Grass Valley Group has gone through.
