Adobe Premiere Pro

Well, Adobe Premiere Pro is all about video editing. I've dabbled with Avid (5+ years ago) and some less-intensive programs. Premiere Pro seems to be able to handle any and all projects. My uses have been fairly low-key: editing sketches together for entertainment and company luncheon; editing clips of employees receiving awards, etc. It's become part of my job, but not necessarily an essential part, and Premiere Pro has performed admirably. In my limited experience, it does allow certain things that the less-intensive programs do not (such as assimilating video from different eras, devices, qualities, etc.).

VEGAS Pro

VEGAS Pro makes it VERY easy to make simple edits to a video - trimming, blending elements of different video and audio clips, layering text on screen. Although I wish it had a captioning feature and a few other elements that products like Camtasia have, ultimately I am a big fan of how easy it is to use VEGAS Pro. It does more than YouTube's video editor, but is easier to use.

Pros

  • Our company has a long, rich history which includes a lot of archival videos from a dozen or more years ago. With Premiere, I have been able to easily lift relevant segments from these older videos to be used in newer videos. I don't know how I would have achieved this without Premiere Pro.
  • I am not a seasoned expert in the realm of video editing. While Premiere can be a bit overwhelming to a newbie at first, it does seem to offer every option and setting I could imagine. With a little research, I was able to figure out exactly what I needed, all of which was easily navigable through Premiere Pro.
  • I consider Premiere to be my ultimate translator. I was able to take video clips shot on various devices, using disparate settings, and assimilate them into a seamless final product. I don't know much about codecs and frame rates, but with Premiere, it turns out I didn't need to know much for my purposes.

  • Simple timeline video editor.
  • Basic clip transitions.
  • Easy audio splicing.
  • Links to programs like Audacity for audio editing.

Cons

  • Confusing interface for newcomers. Adobe attempts to ease users in with some video tutorials, but it is a pro-level application.
  • Resource hog. Things can slow down, even with a powerful computer. Would like to see it optimized more.
  • Additional export options. Premiere Pro has several export options, but there are some holes in their pre-configured list.

  • Seems to be intended for novice video editors and basic projects (doesn't handle audio editing, for example).
  • Many of the clip "effects" are amateurish (crackling screen, screen spinning in a spiral, etc.).
  • Zooming into portions of the screen/panning can be cumbersome.

Alternatives Considered

Camtasia is great for screen-recording and beginner video editing. It is a powerful tool that I recommend to several colleagues. However, it does not have the same robust functionality as Premiere Pro for special effects, sound quality, and color correction.

VEGAS Pro is easier to use than any other video software I have experienced. The end result does not look any different than something made in another (likely more expensive) software. The encoding and export options make for high-quality outputs that are simple to share with others via YouTube or another platform.

Return on Investment

  • I've used videos to garner attention from prospective customers for several of my clients in the past and with my own business currently. The power of video is undeniable. Having a solution to easily and quickly edit video is a must for any business.

  • This year, we rolled out a new technology and used VEGAS Pro to create four of the marketing videos, which seemed to drive up the usage and requests for demos by our faculty and students.
  • We've been able to create higher-quality videos for awareness campaigns and increase traffic on the messages/pages containing these videos.
