Just heard that FOX is looking
for Final Cut Pro Editor's.
As I have stated
before AVID will not be imune to the ever increasing
power of what
can be purchased over the
I'm willing to bet dollars for donuts that it
not the Editor's choice at Fox to select FCP
the cost accountants. Where do you think all this new
productivity is coming from,
Cheaper tools. Go to the
dentist latly, they have a new digital imaging system for

Avid had a major PR problem when
announced at NAB 99 that they were going to drop the MAC

Wasn't crying about my kids just trying to
that things will change as this age group gets older
and just won't give a shit if their editing programs
come from Avid. Do you still get a hard on thinking
about Word Perfect or think of all word processors as

There are more

Hey want a freebie to Avid Boot Camp
you like to buy a TAXICAB
All you have doing on this board is to promote
Apple's FC which needs to run on a Power PC machine. The
rest of the PCs in the world, roughly 95% of them, run
on WinTel machines.
editors prefer to use AVID products whether they run on
Power PC machines or WinTel machines if they want
Fact: Since there are 95% more
WinTel machines in the world than Power PC machines, it
was a natural choice for AVID to develop and release
professional products to run on WinTel machines bsides running
on Power PC machines.
Fact: You have been
crying about your children not being able to edit their
videos from their camcorders. Some one has already
provided you information in a previous note where support
for Power PC machines and WinTel machines has been
available for some time from AVID and AVID partners like
Matrox (and for only a few hundred dollars). AVID has
decided to no longer release future updates due to low
profitability even though the product has a large user base and
has won many technical awards.
Fact: AVID is
still the standard by which all competitor's products
Fact: The Broadcasting,
Entertainment, Industrial, Educational and Marketing
organizations who want a professional productions still demand
Fact: AVID editors are still
considered the cream of the crop and will outperform any
other job applicant.
Electroflyer, just who are
you and what is your gig? It is quite obvious you are
short on AVID but you don't speak the truth because you
can't handle the truth. You showed your ignorance when
you didn't even know that Apple was marketing AVID
Cinema a few years ago to take care of your children's
video editing needs.
There is no way Fox is cutting on FCP. NO WAY,
unless they're total idiots. It's all Avid in the
industry, hands down, end of story. unless of course Fox is
planning on switching broadcast format to VHS instead of
More to the point, any idea why the
runup and subsequent drop last month? I know the drop
was market crash related, but the stock should've
recovered by now. They finally have written off all their
expenses and look to be turning the corner. Any other
longs out there? What do you see as far as short
term/long term price?
I'm hoping to be back in low 20's
by Fall, but am not so sure,...
They are not total idiots
They just want to
save 65,000$ a seat
and maybe pick up some hot new
not wedded to Avid. I think i'm hearing alot
Avid editor's trying to hold onto their Cult. What I
Say about FOX is true.
AND BY THE WAY I DON'T
ANY NETWORK PLAYING TO AIR FROM
The stock "Should Have recovered"
WHY WHY WHY WHY
FCP has many serious problems realted to audio
sync, EDL accuracy and video levels. These issues are
important to broadcasters.
FCP is slow and
cumbersome to work with at this time, but who knows about
the future? Perhaps, FOX is exploring the possibility
of doing some offline work on on FCP to see how it
goes.... or maybe FOX is getting into the 'wedding and
birthday video' industry.
At any rate, this kind of
activity should not be a threat to Avid in the near
Long on AVID.
