Which software for me?
on Nov 24, 2003 at 10:34:35 pm

I am looking at purchasing a new laptop to be used with Video Editing. I am currently using a P4 2.4 Ghz desktop with a Pinnacle Pro-One and Adobe Premiere 6.5. I am planning on getting a Hyperthreaded 3.0 Ghz laptop with 512 Mb. of Ram. Now I am just trying to decide which video editing software to go with. I am a student so I can get Avid Express for the student price of $400. At the moment all that I do is make photo montages. My biggest concern is the number of transitions. I need A LOT! Which program is going to off me the best and quickest solution for making photo montages? I don't really need the analog out of the pro one anymore as everything goes to a DVD first before I make VHS copies.
Thanks for your time,
Jason Garrett

I think that for Photo Montages on a laptop Vegas4 is your best bet. It has great pan & zoom capabilities, you can fly the stills all over the screen, and it's got really nice compositing.

Are there many tranistions included with Vegas? Are there many addon plugins you can buy? I know that Edition claims to have 1000+ effects/transitions which sounds good to me. How does vegas compare?

Edition is the winner formost 3d transitions and animations. Vegas has an excellent selection to choose form as well.
