    I’ve seen good things come recently from other manufacturers as well. Dell which for a while was all about supply chain since going private, I think is making some great hardware as well.

    [John Rofrano] “…and BTW, after owning and building Windows computers for 30+ years, my 2010 Mac Pro is built way more solid than anything that PC manufactures sell you.”

    I have both a Mac Pro and several PC towers. I’ve used both platforms for many years.

    While the MacPro was a wonder of engineering design and functionality for 2004, by 2010, it had several worthy competitors. I have posited for a while that the original Z800 chassis by HP was the first that ‘out-Appled Apple’ in the form and functionality department. Complete tooless entry without sharp edges, superior hard drive bay chassis, of course more expandability, superior power supply, great air flow and cooling design and for the time, a very strong aesthetic. Again, people will disagree and that’s okay, but I think the point is that one person’s idea of solid is different from others.

    I will add that I think chassis design is an important part of the picking your overall computer. For example the current Mac Pro has some great features and limiting factors that make the discussion all the more interesting.

    [Bill Davis] “And Andrew I’m saying that SOX being essentially NEVER used to punish anyone – makes it the functional equivalent of a speed limit sign on a dirt road in the middle of nowhere.

    If it’s not enforced against anyone – it constrains nothing. And so it won’t be the REASON to moderates anyone’s speed.

    If any company says they MUST do something because of the threat of a fine – that nobody actually ever pays – they are being irrational – and so there must be another valid reason they choose to behave the way they do.”

    I tend to stay out of these conversations but I will say that Adobe is VERY, VERY concerned about Sarbanes-Oxley legislation. It is one of the key legal drivers for all software companies. For you to dismiss it is simply wrong.

    tee hee hee…being mischevious here as we are close to Halloween.

    The answer is obvious! Favorite title plug-in…

    Andy, if it’s working great for you, stick with it! That said, I know of no major issues with Yosemite 10.10.5

    This is the key quote in the article for me and why I am steering clear of it for the time being.

    “There’s a good chance that I could be lucky and dodge (or at least work around) any issues I encounter, but quite honestly I can’t find anything new in El Capitan that’s worth potentially wreaking a working system over.”

    BTW – the one reason to potentially upgrade is if you’re using 10bit material and want to output without 3rd party i/o cards. It sounds like that is in there for El Capitan.

    Give me one compelling reason to upgrade to it? (I know of one possible reason for some people)…

    [James Ewart] “This is something that makes some of us non PP users peek through the keyhole into Adobe land with some envy. How do you go through this process and decide what is a genuine “good” feature request?”

    Hi James, complicated question though it’s posed simply enough. I think the answer is multi-faceted. First off, I think that all of the DVA (digital video and audio) folks in Adobe generally have the same customer focused goal in mind and it makes us come together in a number of important ways. The second answer is that we have a lot of field folks like myself who work actively with customers and feed in problems and issues to our engineering teams. There are over a dozen of us worldwide and we bring up requests from all different kinds of customers. We also maintain the public wishlist and actually look at it (my goodness!)

    We also go out and actively seek customers input in an open forum. This week, I was proud to have helped host our annual broadcast round table where we outline what our product road map (under non-disclosure) and seek feedback from our customers. It is always a lively discussion and we get a lot of insight from it.

    Because of my location (New York area), I mostly focus on large media accounts and I tend to think that what big media companies need generally benefits all users. Things like small edit tools (improving trimming for example) or things like performance with 3rd party I/O are examples.

    What makes a genuine good feature request also varies. However, since we have so many different kinds of input coming in, generally if you’ve got a problem with something, chances are others feel the same pain and consequently we see a trend and work to address it.

    I think that our attentiveness to our customers is a key differentiator and what has propelled Adobe forward in the marketplace. If you have to choose between two vendors but one of them listens to your needs, I think you go with the one you trust to meet your needs more effectively.

    [James Ewart] “And out of interest what are the chances of introducing a magnetic timeline option within PP? (not kidding).”

    Officially: I honestly have no idea. My own (non-Adobe!) opinion is thus: If it hasn’t been a runaway success for the majority of NLE users, I don’t see it coming in the near future. HOWEVER, if customers request it, Adobe would probably look it.
