If you have ever considered purchasing a Video Editing software application, and aren’t sure what the best option is, this presentation will be the perfect guide to explain the essentials and fundamentals of what to purchase and what to expect.
Essentials of Video Editing <ul><li>A preview screen to demonstrate your work. </li></ul><ul><li>A wide variety of transitions and effects. </li></ul><ul><li>Smooth rendering. </li></ul><ul><li>Timeline bar with lots of work area. </li></ul>
Comparisons <ul><li>Looking over the top five applications used for video editing, I picked the top two most reliable applications to compare through analysis of performance and ease of use. </li></ul>
Statistics <ul><li>It’s hard to narrow down a choice when you have a wide selection of software all with extraordinary capabilities. </li></ul><ul><li>So to narrow down the “best” software, I used a performance tester, a software application to display the memory usage of each program. </li></ul><ul><li>Although I will average the speed (using a feature in the software) and also compare the different programs on prices which is another way to decipher the best choice. </li></ul>
Using an application by the name of ‘ObjectAlloc’ for the MAC OSX, I was able to emulate actual processing speed used to run each application and also gives the amount of RAM being used.
This chart analyzes the amount of RAM used to run each application in Megabytes.
Conclusions <ul><li>Final Cut Studio is a very powerful application with lots of capabilities to run beautifully, unfortunately it is only available for the Mac OS X, and not for Windows Vista/XP. </li></ul><ul><li>Adobe Premiere is slightly slower in performance but has a very ‘ease-of-use’ system meaning that the application is very easy to understand and pick up if you have no experience with video editing software. </li></ul><ul><li>Both applications are individually good in there own way, to justify which one is better is impossible, it depends on preference of Operating System and personal use of each of those applications. </li></ul><ul><li>If I were to have to choose my favourite application, I would definitely pick Final Cut Studio… If I was using a Mac, if I were to be using a Windows based computer, my personal suggestion would be Adobe Premiere. </li></ul>
