[tony west] "There were other NLE's out there but I don't remember them being "free"

When apple tossed in Imovie for "free" I think that put pressure on Avid. It was just a consumer product but you could cut a wedding or something simple on it. "

I don't think I would agree that Avid ever felt any kind of pressure from iMovie. As to consumer stuff:

Free is relative. To get iMovie, you had to buy a Mac. There were free movie editors in Windows, but not as good. But, you could buy a generic PC for a lot less, spend 50-150 bucks on something like Pinnacle software, and be in about the same spot for a lot less.
