NAB Trend #5 : The Battle of the NLE's Gets Hot With 50% off Deal From Avid

This NAB was certainly the battle of the NLE's with all the majors - Avid, Apple, Adobe, Autodesk and Sony having released or are about to release major updates. I guess Avid wasn't to happy with apple's presentation showing a graph of them competing with Premiere Pro for a distant second place in NLE usage. So they are making an interesting offer : $995 cross grade from FCP to Avid MC5.5 from now until June 15th. You have to prove you are a legit FCP user with valid serial, fine print, lawyer mumbo jumbo. The deal is available from various resellers.
