    Is MC Mac, interface the same as the AXP Mac interface. Are the pulldowns and menus the same?

    Re: Interface

    pretty similar but not the same.  In Xpress Pro the source and record defaults to the left monitor instead of the right.  There are no second rows of buttons or second row of info in the Composer window.  The menus are pretty much the same but there are some features that aren't in Xpress Pro.

    Re: Interface

    there are some menu differences too.

    for instance, in Adrenaline to do a video mixdown, you go to the Special Menu.  in Xpress Pro, you go to the Clip menu. 

    the Command Pallete has a bit more buttons in Adrenaline than Xpress... and  the Timecode Window isn't as customizable in Xpress.
