TallGWMvballer saidBest tip; switch to Final Cut Pro.
It has eclipsed Avid as the editing system of choice for Television, Documentary and Feature films.
I wouldn't say eclipsed. Most post-houses and high-end editing facilities in Hollywood are Avid-based. The company I work for, a high volume TV/Film advertising company, only uses Avid (and has a strange superiority complex regarding Final Cut Pro. Both systems are equally full-featured these days, but because it's harder to learn Avid, the Avid users have a harder time taking seriously the user-intuitive Final Cut Pro. It's very similar to the old Apple vs. Windows battle -- Windows users invested a lot of time into learning how to use the more difficult Windows, and saw Apple users as less capable, somehow).
While I prefer Final Cut, and loathe Avid consumers' elitism, Avid is still king of high-end film/TV editing.
