[Aindreas Gallagher] "No, I'm afraid not Craig. That is an un-buyable statement."

I can see where Craig is coming from.

If you assume that Avid is going under financially and will not have the money to invest in R&D, then what other editing system out there is designed specifically for the feature film market - Lightworks. Given they are owned by Editshare, a company providing networking and storage solutions, they might seem the most logical successor to the Avid mantle. Craig included Adobe in this for obvious reasons but PPro does not have a hardware division nor is it as focused purely on the actual timeline cutting side of things. You could see the future as PPro takes much of the FCP market and Lightworks takes Avid's more niche market.

Not saying it's going to happen, but I can see the logic, if you presume Avid is going to fail.
