[Andrew Kimery] "I think you've done some videos (or at least blogged) about how well Roles handles that, right?

Yeah, for versioning, but even to just spit out tracks for a mix Roles + X2Pro is literally 2 clicks, done. All split out, labelled and good to go. As someone who still has to sometimes "prep" tracks from other editors on other NLE's, I can't stress enough how huge of a timesaver this is..

[Andrew Kimery] "I've worked with some insanely talented editors that have no clue how to prep footage, get it into their NLE, export a cut w/TC, etc., but they don't get paid to know those things, they get paid to be awesome editors on high profile, high pressure gigs. ". . .

[Andrew Kimery] "If everyone who's using any NLE professional knows what's required to have it do it's thing workflow specialists wouldn't be required because everyone should already know the best workflow, right? 😉"

lol, far enough... I guess my point is that, on larger shows and features anyway, there's always at least one assistant who's expected to know all that stuff for whatever NLE is being used, so in the case being discussed, that cost is the same as if they cut in Lightworks or whatever....

[Andrew Kimery] "'ve come into multiple situations where I've helped improve workflows because the established ones were either out of date (in that helpful new updates and/or new apps exist that didn't exist when the workflow was created) or they are just not as tweaked as they could be."

Oh. for sure, and I'm sure some of this falls into that category. But there really are some things that X does that other NLE's don't, that can save significant $$ if leveraged. Reading the article, it seems like the hardest part about using X was finding "A list" talent that know how to use it. Which is a concern, at least in LA for sure.
