[Frank Gothmann] "I didn't think it was that great to be honest.
Most of the stuff that really sets MC apart wasn't a topic. Collaborative workflows, project sharing, stereoscopic, video io, native workflows, AMA, DnxHD and MXF vs. Prores advantages and disadvantages etc., stability, support options, hardware support, control surfaces, roadmaps etc.
Also, what I really don't find useful with such things is that its usually a feature comparison of stuff that's there, on paper, but it hardly evaluates how things behave in real world conditions. How stable is an app, how does is handle large projects, how reliable are features that sound great on paper or look good when demoed.
In my opinion these are the aspects that truly set MC apart and make it the editor of choice for lots of people.

Frank, on one level I agree with everything you are saying, but looking at it another way, I think it is great that those particular guys are sitting down with Avid at all, and that Ripple is putting out an Avid training vid, and that the discourse is opening up a bit. Despite a couple of sneers here and there, and a couple of weird misconceptions, I thought it was an open an honest discussion, and--while by no means comprehensive--is promising for NLE dialog going forward.
