I went from Pinnacle to Ad


I went from Pinnacle to Adobe Premiere Pro and haven’t looked back. I had trouble here and there, but there’s a zillion free tutorials out there. Plus, I think learning any new software has its hassles (Quickbooks took me some time, but I like it now, for example.)

The interaction between Photoshop, After Effects, and Premiere Pro is key, though. I can’t imagine doing anything elaborate without Photoshop and After Effects. You pretty much have to have them as you get deep into this stuff. For me, it doesn’t make any sense to use an NLE other than Premiere Pro, since Premiere Pro can seamlessly import and recognize Photoshop and After Effects projects (not the finished, exported project, but the project files themselves) and I can move their layers around in PP, etc. It’s great.
