Down from $999! You can read the full story at http://www.digitalvideoediting.com/2003/11_nov/news/avid031104.htm#
I’m happy to see such a powerful tool priced closer to Adobe Premiere, Vegas Video, and Ulead MediaStudio Pro. I’m a Ulead user myself, and I plan to purchase a new video workstation in the next 6-12 months. I will seriously consider switching to Avid Xpress DV instead of simply upgrading to Ulead Studio Quartet. (Although I’m tempted by ADS Tech’s Pyro Professional, which includes Adobe Premiere Pro, Encore DVD, and Audition with a FireWire card.
Does anyone on these forums use Avid Xpress? If so, how do you use it, and what are its strengths and weaknesses?
