[Andrew Kimery] "If the mixer Charlie uses rarely gets organized timelines that's not an NLE shortcoming, that's an editor being unprofessional shortcoming. If you hadn't guessed, this is a bit of a pet peeve of mine."

FWIW, it's not just one mixer, it's guys and gals at most of the post audio places in town. (LA) Trailers tend to be better organized, but when people are cranking out spots, all bets are off.

I also share your pet peeve, if for no other reason than I used to be a mixer and had to deal with it. Back in the dark ages of elements coming in on DAT with 2 pops or DA-88's or something, I think people were more careful, because they had to be. Now it's "here's the AAF, you deal with it." Another pet peeve of mine is layering 10 stereo effects or more when 3 or 4 would have done. I've deleted more superfluous tracks from preps than I can remember. And I say superfluous because, when the mix was done, nobody ever noticed. ;-)
