Your advice on choosing between Premiere Pro and Final Cut please

Hi everyone,

The aim of this post is not to start a flame war for those loyal to either camp, but I need some feedback to help guide our upgrade purchase. If you would prefer to drop me an email or respond via a short survey that would be also be fine.

In case you haven't heard of Natcoll, we're a small, enthusiastic design, video and animation school in New Zealand ( for more info).

We're looking at our options for upgrading our Video Editing software and are approaching a decision point. If you have a couple of minutes to help us choose the right tools, it'll mean that our graduates will be as ready to step into work as possible.

Currently our students learn Final Cut Studio (Final Cut Pro, Color, DVD Studio Pro and Soundtrack Pro). For motion graphics, they learn Adobe After Effects. For compositing they learn Shake, although we are looking at moving to Nuke.

We've reached a point where we need to decide whether to upgrade our Final Cut Studio or change to Adobe's offering for video and audio editing: Premiere Pro, Encore and Soundbooth.

We would really appreciate your guidance in making the right decision between these two, similar looking packages:

Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere Pro.

If you'd prefer to contact me off-list you can reach me at or via a short survey here:

Many thanks!
