Birdcat: What to you mean when you say “clients demand that FCP be used?” Are you refering to the end client like maybe “Coke” or “Miller”? If that’s the case and I was the president of “Coke” what would I care what was used to make my commerical as long as it looks good?
I am simply referring information I have read from other users. Recently there was a topic on the official Vegas Forums of someone who was using Vegas for years for a particular client, and when they found out he was not using FCP they stopped using his services – in the end, they liked his work so they did come back to him for small projects but the person who wss paying him (I will find the thread and post the link here tomorrow) was insisting he use FCP if he wanted more work.
As for Avid being the NLE of choice, I have not heard that anywhere but here. I’m not claiming to be an expert by any stretch, but in my limited experience the only “official” NLE of choice I’ve heard of by Hollywood has been FCP (however, as I said, I’ve never used it).
Here is the link to that message:
