    Not before I get a chance to customize it, but the transport controller is great.

    Yes. While I still prefer to use curves for my first pass and the MC Color doesn't work with curves yet, my second pass uses the balls and rings for a quick touch up. Plus the knobs work with all the other effect pages including titling, very cool.

    I also use the Transport. Like Igor says, it's great. In addition, I'm probably one of the few DS users using the MC Control, and it ranks right up there with the Transport. Would be even better if the audio controls were useable, but with the ability to map the touchscreen with banks of tools, it's a huge timesaver.

    Yes, but very dissapointing for grading (which is obviously why we got it) many of the tabs (Levels, Curves, Channels) do not work. Works ok with other effects but.....

    Also while on the subject is anyone out there happy with v11 handling of XDCam material? In reality for me it's no improvement on v10.5 as it usually cannot see the mxf from Media Composer - and when it can it has a fault (claims to be 1088 lines). End result I'm still transcoding out of MC.

    Overall I'm very dissapointed with v11, I regret wasting the money on the upgrade.
