[Bill Davis] "And I still find it exciting."

I find it exciting also.

I didn't at first. I had to get into "it's" mode of editing. I can't really put into words what that is.

All I know is the more I use it the more I can do what I want without even thinking about it.

I still say much of it comes down to the whole tracks thing.

If I have an interview with a player, I go to b-roll of him hitting the ball, I want to hear that bat crack and sound of the crowd under.

I can't see the advantage of having that b-roll audio spread out in the time line. (i can spread it out if I want to)

As long as I can get to it and adjust it, that's all I really need to do with it. So for me it's faster to just have it consolidated as one clip that I can drag up and down the TL

Some folks want to see it spread out below. That's fine.

I don't. If I want it down there I can put it down there, but I don't want it defaulted that way.

I want to grab "one" clip and move it fast.

For me, the only thing that matters with that b-roll audio is if it's too low, too hot, or out of sync.

When you see it on TV you can't say, " sounds like he had that b-roll sound consolidated in one trace instead of spread out below. That's it.........I'm turning off the game : )

For folks that spent years mastering their skills on legacy and now have to start over, I get it. That sucks

They tossed out the tape you still use. That sucks also.

I wish it worked for more people.
