hello, i am looking for an editing system that has the following features:
-can load in any windows-supported format (quicktime, avi, etc) without the need to transcode it, or create any additional footage (at least until output)
Sounds simple enough, but my Avid won't do this. My reason is that I want something that's very quick, that i can use for cutting together pre-visualisation sequences. I have a load of storyboard images, some dv test shots, some fx sequences, and so on, that are all in different formats, and i don't want to have to waste loads of time & disk space converting them to dv or some other intermediate format first.
