Interesting. That makes sense since you'd have a discrete channel for
everything you needed for a two-source compositing operation like a roll.
I've used my SGI's a lot for simple video editing, but I never got into
anything cool like a Toaster or an Avid rig. I know there are a lot of
hardware options for doing video on SGI's (internal video, Sirius video,
Galileo video, and the dmedia bundle for newer systems). There are
applications like Alias Composer, Autodesk Flame, Flint/Effect, Avid
Illusion, Jaleo, Matador, Piranha Cinema HD, Adobe Premier, and Shake.
However, I haven't been able to get my hands on more than half that stuff
because of how expensive it is. Plus, just about all of it was LMF
nodelocked. So, you can't even buy a used copy.
