Ok you software users... I have been presented with an interesting choice.
I just received Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5 (the entire video collection including After Effects, Encore DVD, Elements and Audition) and it looks very interesting. However, I was so lost during my first session with the interface that I scambled to the nearest book retailer for $80 worth of Premiere literature.
HOWEVER... I had it in mind to buy Pinnacle Liquid Edition at the end of this week. I am having a new system built (with a Radeon X800XT card bought specifically for LE compatibility) and am now wondering if I should bother with Pinnacle LE or learn Adobe. I save $300 by not buying the LE, but which is better?
