As a relative N00b to this forum, I came to use SVP because of the superior stability it offered over other NLE's from Pinnacle, Adobe and Avid, albeit consumer/prosumer editions. SVP simply worked for me and got the job done. No more 10 hour renders only to have it crash on 99%!

I agree with John that SVP is a stalwart with HDV and DV, and I have to admit that when I first starting importing NXCAM, MXF and some AVCHD into my workflow, I initially had problems, but in time, Sony added support for them.

I have had a few unusual quirks, but I suspect they are more operator error-related in nature than genuine software faults.

Like John, I work in the software development world and understand what it takes to develop, test and maintain software for such a diverse platform of users, operating systems, hardware, software and video/audio formats. It ain't easy to get it right the first time, especially when other vendors do not follow defined standards fully or choose to deviate, but at least Sony listens unlike some other companies and attempts to address the issues as best they can.

Unfortunately if that means not being able to support Mac formats, perhaps the answer for you is an NLE designed for them, as John suggests... .
