if you wish to talk economy

Avid Express Pro (DV): $ 765.00
Avid Express Pro 5.5 $1480.00
        (w/Mojo: $2100.00)

FC Studio 2: $1200.00
        resolution independent
        picture/sound editing software
        sound editing software
        3D motion design/compositing software
        Title Design software
        DVD authoring software
        compression software
        networkable through Q-Master

just saying...


ps, Avid's upgrade path has sucked almost from the beginning; and
making their software stupider (by disabling certain functions--aka
Avid Express) so they could sell it "competitively-priced" with FCP
truly sucked.
