There wouldnt happen to be any plug-in for any of the editing programs out there that would add more "Live" type of interface ? Such as adding a T-Bar or assigning clips to buttons and switching between them ?
No, dont mention video toaster.
Thanks for all help.

If by "T-Bar" you mean toolbar, then Pinnacle Liquid Edition reportedly offers a highly-customizable interface. You can add/remove buttons, and assign keyboard short-cuts to just about anything.

No JM, I mean the T-Bar in which is used to do transitions and such at live productions. what im looking for is a program or plugin that allows me to have the broadcast/ professional "look" to it.

Video Toaster. :-))
Don't know if it is active when in NLE mode.
The presence of a T-Bar doesn't guarantee a Pro look nor is it required to achieve that look (whatever that is BTW).
What specifically do you want to achieve that only a T-Bar will allow?

I just want to have the interface look similar to that of a live switcher, so kids I teach can use the same interface that they are acustomed to seeing at a production.

Understand. That's why we don't use a VT in the local college video studio. The Grass Valley with a million buttons is still the way to fly.
Here is a reference: http://www.saicom.com/broadcastbulletin/videonics.htm that might make sense for you. Although I generally feel that Videonics equipment is broken somewhere in the design phase and never gets any better.
There are more solutions out there I think. Just do a "NLE T-Bar" search on Google.

theres a unit called "Command Centre" which is compatible with almost every NLE. Its USB based and also has a afew other features like button assignments and a 2 stage jog dial
drop me an email for more info, i have afew in stock which i can open up and have a look at in more detail..
but yes these do have the up/down bar.. identical to the Roland Video Canvas unit..
