Adobe provides me with a suite of tools that are so often updated and are getting better faster that I can hardly keep up. When Apple stopped seeking feedback from people depending n their software for their livelihood Adobe stepped in. Slow and steady won the race. Now their products are used by the majority of editors. Should subscription be illegal? Ridiculous!
Offering Resolve as an alternative, OK, it is free but what about linking with equivalents to Illustrator, Photoshop, and the rest of the software apps that come with CC?
I remember when, as a PC/Premiere user, I couldn't get hired because everyone who wasn't on Avid was on Final Cut. Now the CC means a common set of tools that cost an affordable amount and gives access to a pool of talented creators with whom to collaborate. Thanks in part to Adobe, videomaking is a fabulous career with an exploding demand.
