Software groups.

I'm trying to expand my knowledge on specific software used for certain jobs, professional jobs that is. For example;

I know that for video editing there's:
Apple Final Cut Pro
Avid Media Composer
Adobe Premiere Pro
Sony Vegas

For composing there's:
Apple Logic
Avid Sibelius
Sony Acid

For digital effects there's:
Apple Motion
Adobe After Effects

For photos and paint there's:
Adobe Photoshop
Apple Aperture (maybe)

For sound mixing there's:
Avid Pro Tools
Apple Soundtrack Pro

Can anyone please expand on this or point me in the right direction where there may be a website. Also, can Apple Aperture do the same things Photoshop can?

Re: Software groups.

Not sure exactly what you're asking, but if you want tutorials on most of these items, try lynda.com. Adobe has a number of tutorials on their products as well at adobe.com, they refer to it as Adobe TV.

Re: Software groups.

For composing you could add

Nuendo
Cubase
Digital Performer

Sibelius is a notation programme rather than a sequencer like the others.

Re: Software groups.

Yeah sorry I don't know the difference between 3d programs and compositing programs. Could you elaborate on the difference? And possible list some 3d programs. I've recently discovered Autodesk Maya. Does this do 3d and compositing?

Re: Software groups.

Here's something I wrote down some time ago: About Moviemaking Software | Sareesh Sudhakaran

It might give you a basic idea. Hope it helps.

3d are use to create cgi and compositing programs are use to mix cgi and real video footage together. 3d programs include maya, 3ds max, lightwave, cinema4d, Blender are some I can think up of right now. Compositing programs can also do some visual effect and they are created to work with real footage shot with video cameras. Some compositing program I can think up right now are after effect, Nuke, Smoke, Shake, and Apple Motion.

Come 28th May you can add also Lightworks to your list, that's when the release version with the wide range of codecs will be available.
