Re: Opinions on what NLE to teach on a new BA in Film & Screen Media Production

I do my share of teaching editing students each year at a local college film class. Last year and this, it's become a real dilemma as to what I should teach them. You have to decide whether you want to teach editing concepts or teach students to function as working editors (independently or as entry level assistants at companies). If job skills are a factor, then Avid Media Composer or Adobe Premiere Pro are the way to go.

But here are some other interesting considerations to factor in:

1. If you aren't tied to the Mac platform, you might look into Lightworks, which is free (or minimal cost for the pro version).
2. Also on the PC, EDIUS and Vegas are solid choices.
3. If your students all have access to iPads, you might look at the new TouchEdit. This would be more for teaching editing concepts. It would require an iPad 2or higher.
