I remember back in 1999 a friend had a media 100 that had a storyboard interface so I thought that it was still part of the app.
I like storyboard interface because its a very fast way of building and manipulating and editing a timeline.
It also gives a total view of the timeline without having to scrub plus a faster way to acces any clip. there are no 2,3 point editing just an automatic slip and slide providing that the storyboard interface syncs the timeline.
I know some people consider it below profesional but after using it imop I think that its a much underrated tool, maybe because so few know about it.
