I would not want a unified interface. I prefer the apps to be kept as individual apps rather than one big bloated app.

Like Adobe CS5 which features Adobe Premiere, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Soundbooth, Adobe Encore and more. Can you imagine the complete mess you would have if you took all of those and mashed them into one app?

You would end up with a completely bloated app that featured everything in one but could not do everything well. And I can't imagine how long it would take to open the app, how much RAM you would require to run it at a decent speed, and how it would ultimately slow down your computer to run a "super app."

[Morten Ranmar] "In my opinion they can throw away Motions "3D compositing", Soundtrack Pros audio file editing, and Colors alienated interface - and concentrate on creating a product that saves us time, and integrates with professional industry standards."

Motion 3D compositing is very slick and one of the things it does pretty well.

Soundtrack Pro is used in our facility quite a bit, would hate to see that go.

Have you actually learned Color? Quite a simple interface to use and quite honestly, some of that interface would be good to bring into FCP.

Final Cut Pro doesn't integrate into Professional Industry Standards? Since when? That's quite the statement for a product that has delivered hundreds of network broadcast HD programs from our shop alone and we're just a small production company. I would say Final Cut Pro is quite the Professional Standard these days.

It's not perfect, but I would definitely not call it wanting of professional standards by any means, nor would I ever advocate a "super bloated app" in exchange of a suite of apps that work well together.
