After 12 years of piloting Avid I had to leave Composer due to work requirements that forced me onto Premiere Pro, but I'm thinking of returning soon.
Three things that I do like about Pro is that you can import mixed media at mixed frame rates without trans-coding, as I had to do on Avid, and I can export with the encoder and keep on editing. I also liked the Premier Pro export choices.
Do I still have to trans-code media to the Avid codec before I edit, and can I export and edit at the same time? That was a real time waster.
Third item is that the Premiere Pro export settings that are available are great. Has Avid improved what they had on board 4 years ago? It twas very primitive.
I'll be downloading the trial version, but I thought best to contact Avid editors first.
