Interesting sub-thread, really enjoying the ideas here.

[Jeremy Garchow] "
You don't see any use for a role based vertically sortable timeline? Meaning for any given primary storyline clips and everything connected to it, if you want your audio to always stack as dialogue, then effects, then music? I can think of some really practical reasons, especially when there's no tracks. "

[Jeremy Garchow] "And it's not there yet. Roles are just the beginning the jumping off point, of how a database driven design will help manage data."

Agree that roles have a lot of potential, especially for data management. What I don't see is how they make it easier to edit. Cutting and data management are two very different tasks. They may be related, but the actual work and the tools I need to be efficient are completely different. One of the thing I need is structured visual organization, something that tracks intrinsically provide.

It might eventually be possible to assign a lane index to roles to simulate tracks, but I think things things will start getting messy fast. I'd be happier if the limit on a single primary storyline went away and became user definable. Let me set up my sequence to fit my organization needs, then add data management tools to that.
