I say, get good at EDITING, not so much at a particular platform. I still have not learned all there is to know about FCP7, but we're hanging onto it for now, as it does more than what we generally ask of it.

The thing is, pick whatever platform you like best, that fits your style best, and that's the one that IS best for you. Because you spend so much time with it, you'll become faster and more intuitive with time, and you'll be faster with the old venerable than someone else with uber version beta.

You never really stop learning in this business, unless you retire, maybe. Gear comes and goes, you adapt, you re-learn when needed. Try to do it on your own terms, when you really DO need it, not so much on what is fashionable this week to others. People don't look at a well-crafted cut and say: "Oh, I can tell that was cut on an AVID", versus some other platform. They say:

"That SOB knows how to CUT!"
