[Lance Bachelder] "I was hopeful for MC6 but again a total dud - Avid did nothing to improve audio performance and track count and I hate cutting in it."

As somebody else mentioned, I think this is a bit of a stretch. Of course the last section of your statement is the total truth -- you simply don't like to use it, and that's subjective, and totally legit.

But Avid is the king of long-form narrative and shared workflows for a reason: it'll deal with tonnage of footage from now until the cows (no pun intended) come home without so much as a hiccup, and share it all quite happily amongst dozens of users and round-trip audio and video with all manner of vendors and artists, etc. Far from being a "dud," I'd say.

Personally, I LOVE the interface and find it to be completely transparent and it gets out of my way. It's based on a film cutting paradigm, and I find that very intuitive. I recognize others don't. Yes, I wish they're remove the stupid 16 playable audio track limit. I don't run into that wall too often, but when I do, it IS frustrating.
