NLE for use with Flash

I want to incorporate some video clips into flash. My camera is a Sony TRV22, which has firewire and I have firewire support on my laptop. I'd like a NLE program that I can run on the laptop which is running XP. Important criteria are:

1) stability,
2) ability to output a format that I can import into flash using Sorenson Squeeze, and
3) a license that permits non-simultaneous use on another workstation.

The stability criteria seems to be met by Vegas, Screenblast, and Avid DV according to posts in the archives. Can anyone address items 2 & 3? What else might I be looking for, capability-wise, for my editor say 6 months down the road?

Cheers,

Jim

I'm not sure which formats Flash can read, but Vegas can export
to AVI, DV AVI, Windows Media (WMV), QuickTime (MOV), mpeg1
and mpeg2. So I doubt Flash could not read any of that.

I think licensing might be a bit tough since it is tied to a specific
computer. Have you checked licensing with Sony (on the site)?

I've been creating some flash video websites using liquid edition, which has a send to flash export plug-in.

That much said, i would advise you split your needs & choose the nle you like best, and use sorensen 3,5 suite to move your nle output (avi) into the proprietary flv flash video format. It has the two pass vbr, whereas many of the export plug ins do not (yet).

Thanks for the suggestions. It looks like the licensing issue boils down to a choice of using Avid, which requires a dongle but can be installed on more than one machine, vs. Vegas which requires re-registration if the software is used on a different machine. Those are the only two packages that seem to have a reputation for being stable.

Sorenson Squeeze supports a lot of import formats, so I guess that isn't much of an issue, other than choosing the one that provides the best quality. It will be in the middle of the workflow and will output to flash.
