Suggest me a good video editing software

Some confusion in here:

 

Premiere is for editing, that is, cutting clips, organizing them, making your video as a whole.

 

After Effects is for visual effects, so you take an individual clip you've cut up in Premiere, and then you apply effects to it. This can, quite literally, be anything, from some simple color correction, to generating particles, to animating a drawing.

 

The confusion comes from the fact that Premiere also has some effects. In fact, many overlap between the two programs. I would say as a rule of thumb, if you want to generate anything new (so stuff you can't film), remove something from your footage, or animate something, then you need to use after effects.

 

Some of the best tutorials for After Effects can be found at videocopilot.net. It can seem a little overwhelming, but just look for some effect you want to learn and get going. You'll start to pick it up over time.

 

Of course, if you need any specific help, I can help you as well. Been doing the video editing and effects for several years now. Got a few skills under my belt.

Adobe Premiere Pro, combine it with Adobe After Effects for better editing!

Premier is mainly to edit clips of videos

Adobe after effects can also do that not as well but has a giant range of effects and things you can to video

After effects usually has the better stuff available on the nets not vegas


Thats that. If you need to get in touch chances are you can find someone that knows me that can get in touch.

What's the difference compared to Vegas?

Not sure enough, I used to use Vegas but I've forgotten about it.

Yes, Premiere Pro is for editing. After effect though is to edit the video even better if Premiere Pro can't handle it (but don't do editing in After effect.... Use After Effect to make better effect).

What do you mean by better effect?

Like super slow motion, lighting, etc., it's better to use After Effects. Using just video editing software might not work as good as After Effects, when you're trying to do super slow motion for example, it can be laggy when using original video editing software, by using After Effects you can do that (but need a lot of effort to make a great effect though).

Vegas is nice, but I think it's a little more limited than Premiere.

After Effects is for visual effects, so you take an individual clip you've cut up in Premiere, and then you apply effects to it. This can, quite literally, be anything, from some simple color correction, to generating particles, to animating a drawing.

 

The confusion comes from the fact that Premiere also has some effects. In fact, many overlap between the two programs. I would say as a rule of thumb, if you want to generate anything new (so stuff you can't film), remove something from your footage, or animate something, then you need to use after effects.

 

Some of the best tutorials for After Effects can be found at videocopilot.net. It can seem a little overwhelming, but just look for some effect you want to learn and get going. You'll start to pick it up over time.

 

Of course, if you need any specific help, I can help you as well. Been doing the video editing and effects for several years now. Got a few skills under my belt.
