Oh please, please put another record on. X isn't any more 'busted' than any other NLE, and believe me I've used a few. Yes it has shortcomings, yes there's some missing functionality that requires 3rd party tools to achieve, and yes it is different... but I've spent the last 12 months on Avid coming up against their particular brand of foibles (AMA anyone?) and you know what? That lost me MORE time on a project than anything I can think of in a fair while. And some things in X - mainly to do with the way it lets me interact with the footage - makes every other NLE seem positively stone-aged. IMHO.

X will do everything the OP needs. Whether or not it's the most appropriate tool for him is another matter, and only some more digging will narrow that down. But saying it's 'busted' helps no-one.


Before you criticise a man, walk a mile in his shoes.
Then when you do criticise him, you'll be a mile away. And have his shoes.
