    [Scott Sheriff] “I quit worrying about being PC”

    Keep it up, life is too short. I try to make people here laugh whenever I can.

    Sometimes I even succeed. 🙂

    Heck, where’s the entertainment value if we always appear to everyone like a bunch of serious geeky experts.

    Crucial dates:

    April 9 – 14 NAB Show

    If nothing is announced within this timeframe(and I don’t care if its for a Summer release, just announce something!) then I’ll start complaining…

    Now back to your regularly scheduled program….

    Wouldn’t the litmus test be a 64 bit version? If they came out with just a 32 bit feature / codec support update that would be the writing on the wall that it was time to jump ship. But if it is 64 bit it would have to be a total rewrite which would mean they intend to support the suite…..

    Agree David, the learning curve, also known over here as laziness, is a major factor in deciding whether or not to seriously consider PPro. My fingers don’t want to learn another language. And, btw, Dave is right about marketing people dangling shiny objects. When I have to cut on Avid, it’s like taking a trip back in time to 1988. Segment Mode? Overwrite mode? Talk about software needing a major re-think.

    [David Roth Weiss] “That part isn’t the issue Chris… It’s really all about the learning curve. Learning to do in Premiere what you or Dave know how to do now in FCP is not going to save time just because there’s a little less rendering and/or transcoding to do up front.”

    Well, that’s true, but the similarities between any two editors are more than the differences and that’s particularly true of Premiere Pro and FCP as they ultimately have the same guy who started them.

    Furthermore, with CS5 we included FCP 7 shortcuts – which, while not perfect, nevertheless make the jump from one NLE to another a relative snap.

    I’d like to say more, but hesitate as it will sound like a commercial! 😉
