IF you decide to go with Adobe's Premiere Pro I'd highly recommend getting it by purchasing a hardware realtime editing card like the Matrox RT.X100 or RT.X10 or Canopus Storm, depending on your level of expertise or ambitions.

These cards bundle the full version of PPro with the card, among other things like a bunch of effects (many very fancy) not included (or even possible) with PPro. You also get a whole laundry list of other features.

The price isn't much more than the price of PPro by itself, but the hardware adds a LOT of functionality and makes PPro run much snappier, even on not-so high end systems.

My RT.X100/PPro rig is very basic: a SiS chipped AthlonXP 3000 system with 1 gig of RAM. It even ran well when this rig only had an AthlonXP 2400 in it.

Try running PPro on such a system without hardware assistance and you'll soon learn what "patience" means Smile
