Hey,
i am looking to upgrade my software for video editing on the computer. I currently use pinacle 9 and iMovie but i know that i have out grown there capabilities. i know that it has helped build a strong foundation to what i need to do to edit movies but i dont want to upgrade to something super complicated that i have to take classes to learn how to use. I have looked at Adobe premeire and also Sony Vegas suite. Im questioning avid because i know how advanced it is and i dont want to get in over my head. Is there a good program inbetween the high end stuff and like pinacle. Thanks

You'll have a learning curve with any new editing program so don't let that hold you back. Because you already have some editing experience switching over to a more advanced program should not be a problem for you. You will be able to pick up editing basics in no time and then your can learn the more advanced if you want to put the time into it.

I would check out the FREE version of Avid (this would be a perfect transition from your programs to a more "professional" editing application):

Which ever product you decide to go with make sure to find a supporting forum for it.
Adobe has an awesome support forum here: http://www.adobe.com/support/forums/main.html
Creative Cow also has a bunch of good forums: http://www.creativecow.net/


If you're still in school, many of the top names like Adobe, Apple, Avid, etc.. offer educational discounts.
