Horses for courses. Personally I think that Avid has an undeservedly bad reputation when it comes to effects. AniMatte, Paint, 3d Warp, SpectraMatte and the tracking tools are all very useful, and way more sophisticated than any of the stock FCP7 effects (8-point garbage matte anyone?)

For the kind of work which is the subject of this thread - creative offline editorial - Avid is still a perfect fit IMHO. For all the hype about Premiere and FCP, they still suck at basic editing tasks such as trimming. I suspect that is the real reason Hollywood editors prefer Avid (and, to a lesser extent, Lightworks).
