Jarrod, that’s like asking is jello better than butterscotch pudding: they’re both deserts but “better” depends on your taste.
I don’t edit with Premiere but have used Sony Vegas since version 4. I currently use version 8c because it’s rock solid, never crashes and enables me to work quickly, efficiently and, most importantly, creatively. I edit video of everything from heavy construction to theatre pieces with it, including files from HD cameras and from standard DV. It has excellent color correction capabilities, great audio support and many, many plug-ins that have been written by fellow editors as well as by professional developers.
Others on this forum can speak to Premiere. I’m sure it does just as well and, if you need integrated support programs for compositing such as Photoshop and After Effects, the Premiere Suite would probably be a good choice.
You probably can download Vegas 8 for trial purposes and see how you like it. I don’t know whether you can do this with Premiere.
If you decide to go with Vegas, be sure to log on to the Sony Editor’s Forum where you’ll be able to receive invaluable help from fellow users.

Yes Premiere (and all other Adobe programs for that matter) will let you download a trial (with some restrictions being that the “extra content” is not available) valid for 30 days that you can use to test the program and see if you like it. I prefer Premiere myself, though I do have Vegas I rarely use it. But as JackWolcott said its all personal preference. I’d agree with his recommendation on downloading the programs trials and editing a couple various vids with them to see which you like more.

what about 64bit verses 32 bit programs…. I have windows 7 64 bit????

Adobe CS5 and CS5.5 are 64 bit only so no worries there. I’m pretty sure Vegas has a 64 bit option, or their 32 bit should run just fine on your system just won’t be able to utilize more than 4GB RAM.

there are many software’s for video making , video edit , video clear & any other action with video or movie:
some software are listed here:-
1. Windows Movie Maker 2.6 :
Microsoft has made version 2.6 of Movie Maker available
and it runs on both Windows Vista and Windows 7. While advanced users
are likely using a more sophisticated video editing program, there’s no
denying that Movie Maker is an excellent, full-featured option for the
average home user.
2) VirtualDub :
VirtualDub is a video capture/processing utility for 32-bit and 64-bit
Windows platforms (98/ME/NT4/2000/XP/Vista/7), licensed under the GNU
General Public,License (GPL). It
lacks the editing power of a general-purpose editor such as Adobe
Premiere, but is streamlined for fast linear operations over video. It
has batch-processing capabilities for processing large numbers of files
and can be extended with third-party video filters. VirtualDub is
mainly geared toward processing AVI files, although it can read (not
write) MPEG-1 and also handle sets of BMP images.
3. T@b ZS4 Video Editor It is video editing and compositing software which aims to
provide media experts with a facility to combine a variety of media
type(currently photos, videos and audio files) into one or more output files.
4. Cinefx Jashaka :
Cinefx is an offline playback, editing, encoding, animation and visual
effects tool based on the Jahshaka technology that allows you to create professional digital media on your desktop. Use the tools that hollywood uses to create blockbuster films and special effects.
Movica is just a graphical user interface that uses some fine programs
to edit movie files. A great deal of emphasis has been placed on
keyboard shortcuts to make the job of editing easier. Basically, it is
meant for editing the kind of movies that VirtualDub wont. V-Dub is
primarily an AVI editor, Movica will work on .wmv, .flv, .rm and .mpg
files. This makes it more versatile than Virtualdub.
