[Bob Zelin] "if it was not for AJA, Blackmagic, Matrox, MOTU, and all the wonderful plug in companies that develop products for FCP, NONE OF US would be using FCP."

What would we be using? Adobe doesn't make hardware either...so if it weren't for Matrox, and now AJA and Black Magic, who would use it?

What makes NLE software PRO is the ability to capture and output professional formats...to and from tape, and digital files. Without the hardware, FCP and Adobe would SERIOUSLY be behind Avid. But because third party people make the hardware, those apps are pro. Minus them, they are all "prosumer." We'd be stuck outputting to DV, HDV or DVCPRO HD via firewire.

But it is true...if it weren't for the hardware, I'd be all over Avid. But because so many companies believe in FCP, and make the hardware, FCP is a great solution and still my favorite one. I don't give a RATS PATOOTIE about "native" format support. That's for people who don't know any better about professional formats. H.264 should NEVER be touched natively.

Shoot, I'd better read that article before I continue to comment/rant.
