What video editing software do you recommend?

Recommended Posts

I want to get a bit more into video editing and all I ever used was camtasia studio 7. So I wanted to know if I should just use camtasia again, since I already know the basics about it or if I should buy Adobe Premiere, since that's what most people seem to recommend.

If you're using a MAC then you're probably going to want to use Final Cut or Avid Media Composer. I've found that overall I prefer Final Cut Pro. However, don't overlook Adobe Premiere. The integration it has with other software packages in the adobe sweet it not to be underestimated. You could honestly base your entire workflow around just using adobe products doing everything from SFX to Graphic Overlays and Audio Engineering can all be handled in Adobe software suites.

How much does it cost for Adobe Premiere software since it is supposed to be good. I have never touched video editing software I guess some can call me out of place for being that way. I just don't have anything to edit with nor make videos so video editing would just be useless for me.

I unfortunately don't have a MAC and don't plan on getting one anytime soon. Are there any alternatives for Adobe Premiere or do you think it's the non-plus-ultra for Windows video editing? What are your thoughts about Camtasia? Is it good or should I try to get away from it? I'm not quite sure if it's good or not but I'm already used to it a bit so I wouldn't have to learn the interface of another program.

It depends on how far you want to take your editing. I feel like the Adobe Suite is all a like in it's programs so being well versed in Premiere will come in handy if you ever decided to go further. After Effects pairs with Premiere so smoothly that it's worthwhile to take the time to think ahead if you will want to delve into effects versus just a simple snap and paste program. Having a program that is build within a suite allows you to see how you can make your own pipeline.

My favorite video editing software, and the one I've been using for 3 years now, is Sony Vegas. It has a lot of basic as well as advanced features you may find in other editors, but it also allows for various plugins you can download online (or buy) for additional features, like transitions and effects. It's also much more user friendly as compared to Adobe Premiere, in my opinion.

I completely agree. I don't edit videos anymore, but when I did I would use Sony Vegas. Yes, it is a bit expensive, but it comes with plenty of features ready for you to explore. There are also various tutorials online that will show you how to do almost anything within the software. 

 

Whether it's sound editing, animation, or any other type of video creation, Sony Vegas always had my back.

Depends on what your skill level is. For me, my favorite thing is Sony Vegas by far. I've tried using a bunch of other video editors but never really like them that much. Vegas just has that *professional* look to me

Adobe Premier is very good, if you haven't gotten it yet, try make efforts and get it because it would serve all your video editing tasks well. Also if you are looking at getting android video editing software, then look up KineMaster - Pro Video Editor, it's another great option for you to use. 

Good luck and best regards,

Martins.
