  • Best video editing program?

    I'm sick of adobe! It makes my clips looks like crap! I want something new.

    Whats the best?

    What I'm not liking about adobe... is that the video quality ends up about 5x worse then the original video off of the camera. It makes clips blury and just yuck...

    I use Sony's Vegas Movie Studio!
    I love it.

        I'm with Jerrick!

        I used Sony vegas cause it worked in my old computer. Now I have a Mac and use Final Cut Express.

        I really like the Premiere interface. Also the integration with AE

        Funny, the first tutorial for my site is: Choosing the right video editing progam for you!

        I'm researching a lot to write the tutorial, if you want some tips talk to me one MSN!

          Your site sounds sweet. Make sure when talking about Premiere, to include that the user should setup the preferences to the video they are working on. Like how they have their presets for HD video from certain cameras and standard MiniDV sizes. But lots of people dont pay attention to those, and will have a 320x240 video inside a MiniDV preset, which doesnt show up when your editing, but when it comes to exporting, it really can mess it up, and you dont want the end video to have big boarders around it (Unless intentional) or end up being cropped/stretched which will usually leave you with bad quality.

            My problem isnt exporting or importing, as soon as i watch my video on abode it looks blurry. You'll see what im talking about when my vid uploads.

            And no its not my camera, could it be the format of the clips?

                  The "best video editing program" is probably something none of us can afford.

                  Adobe what, Flash? Premiere Elements (about $100) or regular Premiere (expensive)? It still sounds like you probably have something set wrong when importing. That's the problem with a lot of "best" software, it's not always intuitive, or easy to figure out!

                      Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express are both excellent but they are also expensive (at least FCP is), and you need to be on a mac (which you don't seem to be using).

                      Adobe Premier is an excellent program, it shouldn't hurt the video quality at all.

                        Adobe Premiere should be your best bet on a PC.

                        I am sure its because I am a FCP user, but I wasnt much of a fan of the Premiere interface.

                        Over and over I keep hearing how wonderful the Adobe Premiere-AE integration is. IMO it can not come close to the integration of Motion and FCP, I have used both, and AE is (though it is great for the creative mind, with nothing but time on their hands) is just nowhere near as efficient as Final cut studios integration.

                        The biggest plus for Adobe is the integration from Photoshop to AE. Basically, from a motion graphics standpoint Adobe wins. From a video production standpoint FCS wins.

                        If I started with Adobe and then moved to FCS, I would prolly have much nicer things to say about it.... but its just too slow after going from FCS to Adobe.
