[Oliver Peters] "So unfortunately AAF has never lived up to its potential. That is a common refrain with many attempts at common standards.

There have been more successful attempts in the audio world. AES31 is an interchange format for audio that I found to be by far the most reliable and robust between DAWs. Of course ProTools wanted to push AAF. So it languished.

The problem is proprietary software companies not accepting open standards for various reasons. I take your point that AVID is not the sole driver of AAF but in my experience they have been the chief culprit of incompatibilities that I have experienced, both on the Media Composer and ProTools interchanges.
