Just interested in hearing your thoughts on Avid DS as a finishing and color correction platform. I realize DS can cut, do titles, audio as well as effects and CC. But don't know how it stacks up against more specialized programs like Smoke, Lustre, SCRATCH and DaVinici.

Thanks much!

Hi,

For color grading I think you will do better with a full time colorist in a dedicated suite. IIRC smoke is an editing/compositing system not unlike DS.
