[Scott Witthaus] "[Oliver Peters] " Premiere isn't that buggy in most users' experience, "

Depends on what you consider tenable. One thing that I did learn on the Premiere COW forum is that there are many complaints about bugs in new releases and old bugs not fixed. So, of course you will not pick off all Premiere users but perhaps the disgruntled crowd. Give the others something to think about."

Don't concern yourself with what others experience with the CC what is your personal experience with Premiere Pro CC? What bugs have you found? I have seen more bugs in Premiere Pro since the CC paradigm but keep in mind the CS paradigm was super stable. I can find FCPX bug videos on YouTube that cause FCPX to crash. A crash is worse than a quirky bug. I don't write on the Cow that FCPX is plagued wit bugs just because there a some Youytube videos demonstrating the bugs of FCPX. I wouldn't assume the bug affects every user. Also some Premiere Pro bugs only affect OS X.

[Scott Witthaus] "Oliver Peters] "the single app subscription price is cheaper for Premiere Pro than for Media Composer."

It's not always about price, as Apple has proved. The marketing message is (or could be) that Avid is focused on the "pro" visual storyteller, not the social media poster, cartoon guy, etc... The message might get through to the folks who use a few CC apps and are frustrated. You go back to the old Simon Sinek thing, "Sell the Why". "Hey, here at Avid, we get you. You are a storyteller. You need to work in a collaborative environment. You work on high profile sh**. We get that, so that's why we focus on you, the visual storyteller, not the cartoon guy, social media blogger, etc., All of our tools are meant to make you a better storyteller ..." You stay away from that "we cut the big films" message and get back to why a person should choose Avid (or Apple for that matter)."

Can't all the NLE cut blogs and movies? I think Avid has loyal users and an infrastructure. I say if BMD has a better NLE I will jump ship.

[Scott Witthaus] "[Oliver Peters] "Add to that the fact that installation and updating for Premiere Pro is dirt simple compared to Avid."

Let's see, last time I upgraded to CC 2017, my AE license didn't work (wanted to start a 7 day demo), dynamic links were lost and performance suffered. A bit more work for a solid upgrade is ok by me."

I am not going to lie. The CC has worked without fail for me. I would prefer the old CS paradigm but I cannot claim that the CC crapped out on me. Perhaps it is OS X as opposed to the CC.
