[Jeremy Garchow] "You see, this is really hard to get across, but with trackless or Roles, or whatever you want to call it, you don't have to rearrange the timeline to get different output results. You simply reshuffle the information to way that suits the output. It's pretty nice like that."

I honestly feel this way about the timeline in general. I agree that some sort of visual cues (other than clip names) like color coding would be great. And I also wouldn't mind being able to group roles, as long as i could turn it off. I'm honestly not sure this would work well at all with multichannel/multi-Role sources. The "solutions people are offering are a kludge...

I do organize the X timeline in a "traditional" way where possible (DIA/VO more or less at the top, FX more or less in the middle, MX at the bottom) but because of the way the timeline/timeline index work, I don't care if things get a little intermingled. And It's really easy to separate things if I want with secondaries or a silent audio slug. FWIW, I didn't feel this way at all when I first started cutting in X, but I'm used to it now and it's perfectly fine. Again, Role colors, (and audio Role bussing of some sort) would be nice...
