[Walter Soyka] "The data store itself is not as important as what the developers choose to store in it, what methods they provide within the application for accessing and manipulating that data, and what interchange they provide for third parties to access and manipulate that data."

That is absolutely true.

But once you are used to sort your media with metadata, there is no way back.
To create a bin of clips with specific format or resolution created on a certain date with a mix of keywords and maybe marked as favorites in an instance out of thousands of clips and dozens reels and cameras is only possible with a database working in the background.

It might seem to be Gmailish- "search - not sort", but it is a reality in many productions nowadays. Footage gets piled on an editors desk and the deadlines donĀ“t always allow for logging in all possible ways that might not be even known on the first edit or to the first editor or director.
