AVID Sucks.

I hadn’t thought about how I’d been ripped off by AVID SUCKS for a number of years. For those of you who don’t know, AVID SUCKS is a video editing program with a hardware interface.

I spent $1000 on their AVID SUCKS DV Express product and another two grand in classes to learn how to use AVID SUCKS. Had a great teacher too, Memo Salazar but there was only so much he could teach me about AVID SUCKS in a week and we flew through the material. The Manhattan Edit Workshop let him teach me AVID SUCKS in a one on one setting despite the fact that no one else had signed up at that time to learn AVID SUCKS which, while appreciated should have told me something about AVID SUCKS.

But it was all for naught.


While AVID SUCKS has its place among the industry faithful, the masses, by like, 99 to 1 are using FCP over AVID SUCKS.

I learned how much AVID SUCKS after I couldn’t activate my dongle and AVID SUCKS ran me around for years – because I was so busy and they eventually tire me out without replacing it or giving me a suitable upgrade because apparently the operating system I was on couldn’t support their product. I had called AVID SUCKS myself and told them before I bought their clunky software what I had and they assured me that I could run it.

But that was just to make a sale I guess because once I bought the AVID SUCKS software and couldn’t load it – I couldn’t get any answers or help.

Now they just sent me a solicitation for their AVID SUCKS Symphony software like it’s the second coming.

I forgot how much AVID sucks but I can help make sure that it doesn’t happen to you. Just like with Travelspot.US (search my posts), I hope you relay your AVID sucks story here and for those of you entertaining – just remember you heard it here first – AVID SUCKS.
