Adobe Premiere Pro

Adobe Premiere is a program to have professional results. This program has amazing design tools. It is a program that we use to make videos with professional audios and transitions between images. We recommend this software to make precise cuts and build a video with parts of other videos. Its use is to look for results that allow you to have important achievements.
Now, this program is not for making simple video edits, because we believe it would be wasted

Definitely suited for a business that has a presence on the internet. It is a relatively easy program to use and will make your video quality look professional. It doesn't matter what business you are into, if video is something that will take your company to another level than this is a good program to get the job done.

Pros

Adobe Premiere Pro

  • The color tab at the top of the program enables quick edits and adjustments to color correction and grading. Very similar to Lightroom.
  • GPU acceleration. GPU accelerated effects are labeled to help you decide how and what effects to use for smoother editing.
  • Labels and organization is made easy with the ability to color code your various clips in the timeline and bin.
  • The audio tab at the top makes audio adjustments quick and easy. It has many of the features that Audition has built in.

  • Quick and easy video and audio editing.
  • Great transition options.

Cons

Adobe Premiere Pro

  • There are a lot of third party add-ons. It would be nice if PP offered more filters.
  • Sometimes trying to get a video to load into the Source Monitor, it doesn't want to work.
  • Export media occasionally fails.
  • PP used to offer a whole bevy of export media options. It was nice! Then they updated the program and took all those away. Not happy about that.

  • The advertisements to upgrade need to go. I understand you guys gotta make money but I already paid for the product I have and I don't need a popup every time I open the program telling me there is an upgrade available for $xx.99.
  • Better documentation on how to use certain plugins.
  • DirectorZone is pointless.

We have only ever had to use their online knowledge base to get answers to all our questions.Along with what Adobe provides, the user base for Premiere Pro is very large, so there is a lot of information available for free. Any question you might have will have multiple videos and written content to walk you through solving your query.

Again, I haven't tried a whole lot of different video editing software over the years, but of the ones I tried, PowerDirector seemed to be the right fit for me and the team I worked with. It helped solve the need for tutorial videos and it allowed us to create a bunch of videos in a very small time frame. I recommend it especially for people without a lot of video editing experience

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Premiere Pro

Adobe Premiere Pro is by far the best video software of the selected products. It does not have the best audio editing capabilities nor video graphic design capabilities but good enough ones where it can help you out in a pinch if your primary goal is to edit the video. The best-case scenario is to use Premiere Pro alongside the rest of the Adobe Creative Suite and maybe bring in ProTools for things like audio editing and ON24 for streaming services. Adobe Premiere Pro is far more intuitive than Final Cut Pro will ever be and its integration with the creative suite makes it a far more affordable option for any video editor.

Although I do have Premiere Pro and PowerDirector AND use them BOTH. I find that I do go back to PowerDirector when I need to get something done in a hurry or for a smaller project. That's not to say that PowerDirector is insignificant or small, but more along the lines of efficient and affordable. Premiere Pro is great too but can be daunting for some.

Return on Investment

Adobe Premiere Pro

  • Adobe hasn't had a direct impact on our company's ROI. It has been used for videos disseminated internally or through social media. It has been a communication tool.
  • While we don't look to Premiere Pro to be a money-maker, it has raised the bar and ambition of our video-related projects, which could have the knock-on effect of giving us an image boost in the long run.

PowerDirector

  • Fast turn around on editing.
