I'm just starting to get into some video work and was wondering what programs everyone uses?? Pros/Cons?? Right now I have Premier 6.5 and I like it but was wondering if there's any better programs

Better? There is no BETTER program in my opinion as it is pretty much the gold standard for editing in my experience (besides something like avid w/dedicated hw). Easiest to use? Hell no. I actually use Vegas Video (I think Sony bought it?) because it's a lot more intuitive for me as a long time PC user. Premiere has always felt like it was designed for the Mac and then ported over to the PC and really doesn't feel like a Windows app. <BR> <BR>If you want full-featured editing tools that can do just about anything, you can't go wrong with either, but I think Vegas is much easier to pick up for the uninitiated. <BR> <BR>I've also heard that pinnacle and ulead have been catching up but I haven't used them for a year or two now as they were sorta clunky next to the Premiere and Vegas. <BR> <BR>Just my $.02

If you feel comfortable editing with Premiere 6.5 then I would stick with it. If you switch editing programs you will just go through the whole learning curve again. <BR> <BR>The only time I would consider changing programs is if you were interested in doing this for a living. Then you would want to look at Avid or Final Cut Pro because those are the industry standards.
