[Franz Bieberkopf] "audio always offers orchestration since it's used more in parallel than picture is (which tends to be serial in arrangement)."

[Franz Bieberkopf] "NLEs are DAWs - though their functions may be limited, it's hard to come up with a definition of DAW that an NLE doesn't fit "

I think that difference is in the philosophy of the toolset, as you noted above. Aren't NLEs optimized for serial operation and capable of parallel operation, whereas DAWs are optimized for parallel operation and capable of serial operation?

I'm hoping Lance chimes in with some Vegas knowledge, Vegas being an outlier in our conversation in that it's an NLE based on a DAW.
