Im curious if any agreement was reached about your workflow going forward?
I think Shane's advice is spot on, and largely agrees with me.

I'll make one additional point.

Editors nowadays live in a very different world to when I 1st started in TV some 31 years ago.
Back then most editors were on staff, worked and were proficient on the plaftorm(s) from their company. And the number of ways of editing Pre computer and NLEs was far less. Things re very different now. With NLEs being near 100% the platform, but with a number of manufacturers competing, and with staff jobs being the few not the norm, editors are usually freelance.

Speaking as someone who hires freelance editors now, I feel that ANY editor working in the freelance space should be equally proficient in Premiere Pro, Avid, Final Cut Pro and FCX (note Ive removed the P from FCX as I don't see much pro in that software) I expect any editor to be experienced and capable in the craft of the job, NOT only on 1 programme / piece of software. Its like driving a car. Yes you can have a favourite. Other cars feel a bit strange at first, but as a driver, you can drive ANY car.
