    it´s hard to say which is easier to use.
    if you already know how to work with photoshop, it will be very easy to work with premiere/after effects.
    if you don´t know photoshop, it doesn´t matter.

    as for which is better, i´d say after effects+premiere. but it depends on what you want to do and how much you need. sony vegas might fullfill your needs.

    I been using Vegas Studio 8 for 2 years and never encounter a low memory problem as I've always encounter on Premiere Elements 7. In Vegas, I put almost 450 high quality pictures and a almost 100 video clips in a single project and it never crash. I'm frustrated with Premiere Elements 7 which I bought about 4 months ago. After spending many hours on my project and ready to share my project on DVD I'm getting a transcoding error. I google this error and I found out that there's a lot of people experiencing the same problem. Getting Adobe's help? Nada! ... its already been 5 days since I sent my case and up to now to responds. Even if they reply to it, I won't waste my time anymore. I'm done with it.

    I bought the Premiere Elements 7 because I thought it is better than Vegas. I'm a programmer and work on different software and never encounter such a help (or user) guide that was hard to understand and inaccurate. Almost every night I spend about 3 to 4 hrs studying this Premiere Elements and I'm still having hard time using it. Probably because I'm expecting the same full control as in Vegas. And now, I'm stuck with this transcoding error. I don't think I'm going to create another project using Premiere Elements 7 because there's no guarantee that it can be put in DVD.

    Stay away from this software. Don't waste your money and time (as I did).

    vote for vegas!
    after effect to be used for adding some effect not ideal for making long video.
    there are hollywood effect plugins for vegas can be used for adding some transition effect. and the time for rendering really fast.
    highly recomended!

    I don't do video editing on Windows, so I can't give my opinion about Vegas. I use Final Cut Pro on the Mac.

    But I think it's better to use Premiere in combination with After Effects. If you have Photoshop, you can easily switch between these programs.

    Well, i am using Adobe After Effect for four years and Sony Vegas Pro for two years, in my opinion Adobe After Effect is the best, it have all facilities to rendering, lighting, shading, painting, cropping , cutting , editing and effecting a video. Adobe After Effect's visual effect are more realistic than Sony Vegas Pro.But it is little bit tough to use it than Sony Vegas Pro.:cool:CHEER ADOBE:cool:

    I've used Sony Vegas, Final Cut Pro, and After Effects. If you want to do special effects, then choose After Effects. If you want to edit a video longer than 30 seconds, choose Vegas or Adobe Premiere. I haven't used Adobe Premiere before, but I've heard it's pretty good. Good luck with your choice! I think you'll be satisfied with either one.

    Hi,


    I think Adobe Premiere is easier to use, but once you understand all the technical words you can get around easily in any video editing software.


    Good luck ;).

    I've owned all 3. Vegas was easier and all in one. AE and Premiere have more potential, but most don't need it.

    Sony Vegas is the easiest to learn and use (and still a great editing tool).
    Premiere is a little harder to learn, but has more features than Vegas (great tool for general editing).
    After Effects is used more for "motion graphics" editing and has a steep learning curve (it's AMAZING software).
