What software do you use to make all your movies?

What program do you use for the special effects?

Final Cut Pro or iMovie 09... iMovie 09 is hard to beat for throwing together something quick.

I use Vegas Pro with After effects to supplement it. Well, sorta, I'm teaching myself after effects here so that I can make some cooler transitions and better titles...

Final cut pro for basic editing, after effects for any special effects, cinema tools for conforming, and apple color for color grading!

Both Global Warning & The Chick Flick were cut using Premiere Pro (PPRO) and After Effects (AE).
We also used Mocha in GW for tracking.

Sony Vegas for video
Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator for graphics and effects
Adobe Encore for DVD

I've actually been shooting a little HD video with my Mark II lately and playing around with editing in iMovie. I probably won't be doing much since I do more stills work. Just a question though, is there a certain way I need to export my movie from iMovie so I can burn it on a DVD and watch it on the TV? I exported one tonight and then burned it to a disc and the DVD player said it couldn't read it. I'm guessing since it's a .mov file.

Brad: yes, you will have to make it DVD compatible. Movie DVDs aren't as simple as just burning a file and tossing it in the player. You'll need DVD authoring software which conforms the files to DVD spec. Most programs should auto-convert the file to the correct format, but some may not. When I do mine, I always export from the editor at the least compressed file type, which is generally Uncompressed AVI. It's a huge file so it's only good if you have the space. You could export to DVD-spec MPEG-2 to skip a step, but you might have to do some guess work on what settings to use. The next problem is that you're working with HD you say, which is not DVD-spec. You'll lose the HD by going to a straight DVD. To keep the HD you'll have to create something in a format called AVCHD. It allows you to put HD video on a DVD and play it in a Blu-ray player. AVCHD discs won't work in a standard DVD player. If you want to maximize the potential, you'll likely have to downsize to DVD-spec so you can play it on DVD players. A whole other can of worms is opened when you start worrying about aspect ratio and the 16x9 format of HD and 4x3 of standard.

I appreciate the feedback. I figured I'd have to convert somehow. I used to use a program when I was working with Windows to do this but it's been a while since I've messed with some video work. You recommend any software to help me covert after I export?

I use Adobe Encore because it integrates with Photoshop and After Effects. Since you mentioned iMovie, I'd say take a look at iDVD. I'm not in the know with MAC software but when I was looking up some things I saw you can export directly from iMovie to iDVD. It would probably be the easiest solution, removing a few steps and also stopping you from learning a completely new program as I'd assume the layouts of all the i-video programs would be similar.
