I agree with Oliver. The poll option needs an "all of the above."

In 3D, it's very common for artists to bounce back and forth between applications because each package has different strengths and weaknesses. Look at Terra Nova -- it's modeled on Luxology Modo, animated on Autodesk Maya, and rendered on Newtek LightWave. Some shots are composited on Adobe After Effects, and some are composited on The Foundry's Nuke.

Why should editorial be different? FCP Classic, FCPX, Avid, Premiere Pro -- they all have different strengths and weaknesses. They're appropriate for different needs and in different workflows. Why limit yourself to one?

Edius has been widely overlooked in all this discussion, but you've made it sound interesting. Maybe I'll take a look at that, too.
