One glaring issue in the current Beta version of R16 is that you cannot trim audio separately from the picture in the Cut page. Like FCPX, clips are combined a/v clips. Although a clip goes to V2, it functions a bit like a connected clip in FCPX. Therefore, the Cut page has no separate audio tracks, only video (actual a/v) tracks.

A clip edited to V2 has source audio married to it. Clips on any track cannot be expanded and the audio trimmed independently, like you can in FCPX. You have to switch to the Edit page for that type of editing.

In this current form, it seems like the Cut page is largely a place to build rough cuts before going to the Edit page, or maybe very simple YouTube or news stories. Maybe that will be fixed before R16 finally hits the release version.

BTW - it's also interesting that between NAB and now, the edit keyboard price has changed from $995 to $1,025.
