I find myself trying to understand your point about Adobe being all separate programs. Isn't it the same with Sony to some degree?
Not actually having used either Adobe Creative Cloud or Sony Creative Software as mentioned above, here is my cursory understanding of how these competitors address the different needs of a video editor:
Video Editing: Premiere Pro
Special Effects: After Effects
Audio Editing: Audition
Encoding: Media Encoder
DVD Authoring: Encore
Video Ingest / Workflow: Prelude
Color Grading: Speedgrade
Total Programs: 7
Video Editing: Vegas Pro
Special Effects: HitFilm
Audio Editing: Sound Forge
Encoding: Production Assistant (plugin)
DVD Authoring: DVD Architect
Video Ingest / Workflow: Production Assistant
Color Grading: Vegas Pro
Total Programs: 6
So, obviously both companies employ multiple programs to address the gamut of needs. The Adobe suite has 7 pieces and Sony 6. Is Adobe really that much more disjoint than the Sony suite? If so, it is not immediately clear. Can you let me know more about your take on this?
Reading more of the program promo info, I'm starting to get a sense that Adobe may be more team focused. On the other hand, that would mean that Sony might be a better choice for the solo video producer. Would you agree with this interpretation?
