[Neil Sadwelkar] "Another aspect is that other NLEs are editing systems,.... .......humans proficient in colour correction, compositing, or sound design, exclusively work within the respective pages (only) within Resolve, and the editor holds it all together by working in the Edit page and media pool. Expecting these 4 to be the same human is unrealistic, and certainly not commonplace."

One thing to point out here, is that Resolve has a very definite left to right workflow through the pages. For example, it doesn't work well to add effects in the Fusion page and have those appear back in the Edit page. Some effects show up, some don't. You have to do a mix down or compound/nest the clip (whatever Resolve calls it). That's contrary to a true all-in-one workflow philosophy. The design is really that you lock the edit, then do color and effects, and then finally mix.

That's as opposed to Adobe where I can send a clip off to AE with Dynamic Link/render-and-replace and have an AE designer do the embellishment/compositing. But only if I want it linked in the same timeline, which is optional.

Remember, too, that neither Fusion nor Fairlight ever garnered large market share and historically more node-based compositors have hit the market and failed compared with fewer, but more successful, layer/track-based compositors.

So I think Resolve - the idea - is more attractive than the reality.
