Video Editing Programs

C.L.O.U.DC.L.O.U.D Member UncommonPosts: 365

I need all you pro editors out there. Me and friends love to make movies and we have used for starters Windows movie maker and Pinnacle studio. I didnt Really like pinnacle studio, it was sumwhat deffective . WMM was fine but its power is very limited. I was wondering what I should upgrade to cause i want to make my films/video the best they can be. Some people said to use Adobe Premiere is this one any good? pls help
p.s.:I dont have a mac which is suposedly to be the best for what i ask, but i really cant spend to buy mac right now.

    Okay, WMM sucks.... and Pinnacle I havent used.

    I suggest Sony Vegas or Adove Premier. The Adobe would be the best choice and is like the ultimate, but Vegas is still very very good. I Personally use vegas for video editing and it rocks, havent had a problem yet. Both are pro and very good, I dont know if your gonna buy it or get it some other way, but go for Adobe, and then vegas, but vegas wont let you down.

    I've heard Vegas is really good, but I can't honestly say... I do all my editing on mac.

    If you are serious about your video editing, I'd say invest in a mac, not in a better pc program. It's like trying to be a professional graphic designer and using only ms paint.

    I have used WMM, Vegas 5, and Adobe premier and I have got to say that Adobe Premier on a mac is better than any of those other programs. Vegas is easier to use, though.

    Get a used media 100 ssytem setup for betacamSP or better. For the costs of the newer programs you will have all the power you need and faster rendering. If you get real hardcore add an ADAT designed sytem for multichannel audio (layla, audiowerks8+).

    You can get better performance for similar costs to the new stuff in what sounds like your price range. To really get good use of a FCP/GhoST or any such editor + compositor combo you are talking $15k+ in gear.

    I have been using Doratoon for video editing last 2 years. It's working well. If you want video editing software, I will suggest Doratoon for your movie and video editing. It has another benefit that you can create content with Doratoon. I hope it will be useful for you.

    If you cannot get a Mac right now, there are plenty of good options for video editing on Windows. One software that you might want to consider is Adobe Premiere. It's a professional-grade program that's widely used in the film and video industry and has many powerful features for editing, grading, and finishing video. That being said, it can be a bit complex to use, especially if you're new to video editing. Alternatively, you might want to try a program like Movavi Video Editor ( It has a good range of features and is relatively user-friendly.

    Adobe Premiere and DaVinci Resolve are both great options to upgrade your video editing software. Adobe Premiere is a professional-grade software that's available on both Windows and Mac, while DaVinci Resolve is a free software with professional-grade features. The best software for you will depend on your specific needs and budget.

    depending on what purposes. If you’re just cutting up a video, then Adobe Premier or Vegas Pro. To create beautiful animations and transitions with effects, it is better to use after effects

    The Adobe's suite of apps is good for all the needs at advanced level, but it requires time to learn and it's not cheap. IMO the MS ClipChamp is really good now and it's free.
