I'm a little late to this thread, and I see others have posted in defense of Avid, but I'll add my .02 worth. We're doing an extremely VFX heavy show for Showtime and doing TONS of temp vfx right in the timeline -- no need to go elsewhere. The VFX super from Stargate FX is constantly impressed with our temps, and they're basically copying what we've done. Lots of compositing with tracking, paint effects, traveling rotoscopes and mattes, all with the built-in Avid effects on the timeline. One of our editors did one effect this season in AE, and that's the only one we didn't do in the Avid natively -- although we could have.

I understand personal preference, but I just wanted to make it clear that Avid is EXTREMELY powerful and is more than JUST an editor. However, to use it to it's full potential you it you definitely need to dig deep.
