My Girlfriend has gone crazy
on Jul 3, 2003 at 10:20:58 pm

Hey there.
My g/f is doing a film course in uni and right now she is doing a quick 1 month course in DV. She called me and said she wants a MAC and Final Cut Pro. I nearly dropped dead over $2K!? for that stuff.
I have a kick ass computer which would easily handel and DV editing and capture. But my question is:
Is Final Cut Pro so much better then any PC editing tool?

What alternatives are there software wise? I heard Final Cut pro is really easy to learn and use and i think thats why it is so popular. Is there really a point of getting a Mac JUST FOR Final Cut Pro and is it worth it for a student.

(Money not an option when replying)

We've got several great NLE apps that are as good as or better then FCP. And they don't force you to buy an new expensive MAc.

Vegas 4 - At $399.95 it's the lowest cost option. Don;t let the cheap price tag fool ya - Vegas is loaded with features and performance

Avid Xpress DV - The other end of the price range. At $999.95 it's not cheap - but it is an Avid. Avid is used to edit something like 80% of TV shows and commercials. Avd is a professional editing tool that will have vlue on her resume.

Pinnacle Edition - the newest kid on the the block. I love it. All the wiz bang features I crave at a reasonable price with very good editing tools.
