[Bill Davis] "Totally.

See the widely published benchmarks for getting video work turned around on Macs running X
compared to PC hardware running --- anything.
(Well, in fairness, maybe Resolve is in the running now?)

But apparently only recently."

Got a link?

If by faster - there talking about importing, exporting, and rendering and stuff like that..that really means nothing to me.

I dont import, export, and haven't had to render something in a long time.

It takes me about the same time to cut a spot in X as it does in Avid .

In X I use keywords - In Avid I use stringout/ and or subclips with commented markers. IMO pretty much the same thing and takes the same amount to setup. X gets a slight edge because for common things (broll,dialogue,etc) you can map a keyword to a key, where in Avid I type in the comment field what the clip is or what a person is saying but once I get the first one its just as simple as copying and pasting. Then with the searchable bins - i just filter down to broll or whatever I'm looking for. Same as in X.

Once I get down to the timeline - things are virtually the same EXCEPT when I have to move big chunks of clips around, then X gets the nod there.
