What video editing software do the guys use that work on like spiderman, or the Matrix. Or other movies with good special affects. Do they use something like Premiere Pro or final cut pro or is their something else out their that either we don’t know about or that isn’t availible to us?
Sorry if double posting is agaisnt the rules on this forum but it appears I have answered my own question. For special effects they use Apple Shake 3.5 .
“They” also use After Effects (see the Aviator).
Check out Flame, Smoke, Motion, Vegas, etc.
Cold Mountain (and many other films) were edited on Final Cut Pro. Waking Life was as well. Avid has been the Non Linear Editing software/hardware of choice in Hollywood.
Many other software programs are used for effects like the ones Michael Durwin mentioned above and also Maya, NewTek Lightwave, Inferno, Flame and many, many more.
