[Andy Neil] "I see the magnetic timeline as merely a reversal of the previous timeline conceit. At the end of an edit, you are not going to want any gaps or black flashes, so the magnetic timeline exists to prevent that."

Andy, if you're seeing gaps like blank frames I can understand why you think they're great. I'm not. Gaps for me are the 'quiet' spaces between clips on audio tracks and the 'covered' spaces on lower video tracks. They're the absence of objects.

As I said I'm sure the dialogue about gaps makes sense to you guys who are actually using (and attempting to use) the program. From outside the ecosystem it just sounds like the talk you'd hear in any engineering conclave...or among monkeys at the zoo...not that there's any comparison intended :)
