Is Automatic or manual Transmission better for off-roading

The Blue metal shows the clutch was over heated

Many car enthusiast are hardcore manual drivers but if you want to do some off-roading your best option is an automatic. Automatic transmissions are more ideal for off-roading due to the transfer of power in auto you’ll have a torque converter letting you evenly and smoothly transfer power to the wheels making it easier to keep traction and move forward on the trail without riding a clutch. the biggest component to a manual transmission is the clutch think of being stop and go traffic not very fun, off-roading on rough terrain is similar and all your gonna do is burn/glaze your clutch and warp your fly wheel that can lead your car not being able to move and stuck out in the middle of nowhere.
