Question by John: Adobe Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro?
Hey i’m trying to decide whether to stick with Final Cut Pro or Give Adobe Premiere Pro a try. Im mostly familiar with Final Cut Pro 7. Personally I think its an awesome editing software for all professional editors. We all use it at my college. The thing is, I think Final Cut Pro can be a pain sometimes. It took me an hour and a half just to get my T3i footage on it 2 weeks ago! And one thing i heard is Adobe can read all formats unlike Final Cut Pro. Basically the reviews I read, say that they are pretty much the same. Especially since Final Cut Pro X. And I’ve been hearing good things about CS6. Plus Im excited on maybe getting in to After Effects. Any suggestions or insight?
Answer by techguru
Yes, Premiere Pro has gotten amazingly better in recent years and in fact many, many users have been switching from FCP to Premiere since Final Cut Pro X came out in June 2011
And yes Adobe After Effects is great and the two video tools are integrated seamlessly in the Production Premium suite using Dynamic Link. Other applications you will probably find essential are Audition for audio, as well as Prelude and SpeedGrade which are new to CS6
Best of all, Adobe is having a big sale right now for “switchers” from FCP
Hope this helps!
