We had a couple of these threads in the past but we need another one imo cause I don't feel like necroing dead threads.

So I am in the process of editing a clip that I shot with my little sister a few days ago, and I thought it would be good practice to try another program so I went ahead and installed Sony Vegas 9.0 since I heard good things about the people who used it.

And to be honest :/

I don't know if I just don't like the interface, but I really don't like this simplistic approach it has to the editing, I don't know... there's just something about it that I don't like.

Before that I use to use Adobe Premiere CS3... I've been using it for a year now and god fucking damn it, I hate it too. I'm really thinking of going back to 7.0

Anyhow, I'd like to know which programs you all use, since I can't make up my mind on anything and it's getting tiresome. Also debate about whatever programs and what not. And yeah... you know how threads work. pp_smiley11.gif

Yeah, that's pretty much the same feeling I had when I tried Vegas.

I just saw some videos of Premiere CS5 and... icon_surprised.gif Want.

I need to reformat this shit box though.

Got Premiere CS4. Used to use Vegas 7. Like Premiere better. More professional-like, imo. Can't see myself really using anything else to edit with, unless I upgrade that is.

Curiouser and curiouser...

Industry standard software for the last ten to fifteen years has been Avid, but Avid can be very expensive and operates on a completely different work flow then Vegas or Premiere.

Final Cut has gained a lot of ground seeing feature work quite prominently in films such as Benjamin Button, 500 Days of Summer, and Francis Ford Coppola's 'Tetro'.

I've used Vegas for a number of years and am in the process of switching over to Final Cut and Avid to operate on a more industry standard basis but with some time Vegas can be a truly excellent editing tool. I've never used premiere but have often heard that the interface and work flow is very different from both Vegas, Final Cut, and Avid. Personally I still favor Vegas' fairly linear approach with time line editing.

A lot of post work flow depends largely on what cameras you'll be working with though, RED cameras are very, very difficult to use with anything but Premiere software because of the nature of the raw files off the camera.

Overall I think Final Cut Pro is going to become the industry standard but Vegas nonetheless is a very strong tool if you give it some time, just keep in mind that in a few years you may be switching to a different system entirely if things move more towards Final Cut Pro.

I use MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 15 PLUS, it's useful and stuff! But I've heard a ton of stuff from Vegas and Avid.

Magix sucks. Windows movie maker is by-far the worst though



Sony Vegas Pro 9.0 is the best but it requires a bit of template and property customizing in order to get decent rendering.

HD platinum, studio, production assistant etc. are pretty useful for anyone wanting to produce wide-screen HD quality videos which is good for people wanting to make mini-movies, web series etc.


Just download them all and keygen the mo-fo's icon_razz.gif

The professionals use exclusively Avid and/or Final Cut. Premiere and Vegas seem to be seen often as "second tier". However, to be perfectly honest, any NLE that gives you frame by frame precision cutting is satisfactory as a basic editor. Premiere and Vegas can do basically the same thing as Final Cut and Avid.

It's what you, as an artist, do with the tools, not how expensive or popular the tools are. Just try a bunch of the programs out and find what works for you.

If you're trying to become an editor for a living, then you might want to learn avid or final cut.

This. It really has been all about Avid, but Final Cut is definitely on the rise :/ Only reason I got a mac just so I can learn it. I personally prefer Avid.
