Making the Right Choice

When it comes to non-linear editing (NLE) there are quite a few options out there. More than likely your decision will need to be among the 'big three': Final Cut Studio, Avid Media Composer, and Adobe Premier...there is the occasional Sony Vegas user, so I guess we can make that a fourth. Now the question is- How do you choose?

Bundles & Features:
With such a wide range in pricing it is critical that we take into account what we are getting for the cost. Take a look at this breakdown and comparison. 

Now, looks aren't everything, but as an editor you will find yourself immersed in the software for hours- so you better like what you see. A friendly user interface says a lot about a program. It should make sense and be intuitive. Throughout your search you'll notice many similarities across the board but you'll know when you find the right one.
