Speaking as a jack of all trades, i don't think a unified solution is going to work.

I like having separate apps for different aspects of my work. I don't think its reasonable to expect one app to be the master of every discipline. And to think its ever going to be so, its just wishful thinking.

I like to be able to pick the right tool for the job, and if that means i edit my video in fcp, but cut and mix audio in Protools, whilst using After Effects to create motion graphics,and Cinema4d to bring in a 3rd dimension to my ideas, then i'm happy working that way.

The other thing i tend to do, is to have my audio software running on a separate mac from the video software. Protools is notoriously slow at updating, so i avoid any conflicts by keeping everything on different machines. Using a KVM matrix means i can use the same dual-screen monitors and my wacom/keyboard regardless of the mac powering them. It also means i can be rendering on one mac whilst dubbing on another. It also gives me a backup system should one mac develop a fault.

I'd hate to be reliant on one app/one mac for my entire workflow. Thats just silly.

I want the software developers to be refining their own products to be as good as possible, rather than being as all encompassing as possible. Forget one size fits all - i'm a big guy, and one size certainly does not fit all...ever!
