[Bill Davis] "I don't see stuff like keywords, magnetic assembly, and Roles in those - ALL of which arguable address this central issue.
THOSE are the keys to X"

Sure. Of course they are. And those are things that I'd bet the vast majority of users could care less about. Other than magnetic timeline, can you honestly say that you see a lot of people who use X that actually make use of these functions? Or do they merely accept the defaults and slap stuff together in the timeline? I'd venture to say the latter is a far greater number among those that edit with X. I don't believe roles and keywords sell X to anyone who is a new user.

However, if you look at intuitive to learn and low/cost or free, then Resolve and HitFilm are on equal footing (in my mind and from what I've observed) to X. Then add more versatile/comprehensive workflow options and platform-agnostic, and it makes a compelling case.
