Adobe Premiere Pro

Adobe Premiere is perfect for the semi-professional or professional video editor. For our church, we produce weekly sermons for YouTube with embedded graphics, video clips for reference, and music, with Premiere being the only suitable software (on PC) that allows us to accomplish this at a high-quality, professional level. Premiere may also be suitable for individuals new to video editing if they are doing so looking to learn, as Premiere provides plenty of growing room. Casual video editors may be better suited with a less intensive, friendlier video editing software

Filmora

It handles Nvidia Shadowplay videos with ease where some other editing tools struggle with those video formats. If you want fancy pre-made transition and effects you get a much wider variety with Filmora than with almost all other video editing tools.

Cons

  • Adobe could improve the plugin integrations because we had some problems with some of them and today the third party plugins are an important part of the Premiere universe.
  • For some types of video related needs, Adobe Premiere can be "too much", with too many features and great usage of resources. So, if you have simple needs, maybe other tools can work better.
  • It's not so easy to teach and train our new collaborators.

Alternatives Considered

I have learned editing through both Final Cut and Avid but eventually found Premier Pro and settled on it as the only editing software I would ever need. The seamless way it integrates with the rest of the Adobe creative suite is sensationally powerful and time-saving. At this stage in the game I couldn't even fathom switching to something else

Filmora has a better effects, transition option pack than other services and it is less than half the price of Camtasia. However, it is limited to 2 video tracks only where Avid One which is free allows 4 video tracks. Camtasia has better layered video on top of video features, but Filmora is faster at cutting/trimming video than Camtasia if you want to segment out or slice out portions of videos it can be done in less steps. Often I start working on a video with Filmora and finish it up in Camtasia or Avid One. Filmora effects pack are its biggest selling point and it's awesome that they come out with new ones every month.

Return on Investment

  • It allows us to learn and train on a single software that runs virtually identically on Mac and PC, reducing our training and staff overhead while supporting a wide user base
  • The cost can be hard to justify for a whole lab of computers that aren't being used through the full working day
