We use a mixture of Vegas 8 and Adobe CS3 (After Effects, OnLocation, Audition, Encore, Photoshop).

I've been trying to wean myself off Vegas and move more into a complete Adobe workflow, but Vegas is too darn user-friendly. Perhaps the problem is I started with Sonic Foundry Video Vegas 3.0 as my first NLE, so I've got their workflow too engrained in my head.

I'm glad to see that no one here is arguing that "their NLE" is the "best". What I am getting out of this is that if a certain program does what you need then why not use it, even if it isn't the industry standard (if there is such a thing).

Hi I am not a pro here so I am using Ulead VideoStudio 11.5 plus (don't laugh here..) but my clients never complained so far. The message that I want to deliver gets through with simple editing, the right music and overall simplicity is my main goal.

Stelios, it don't matter at all what you use, as long as it delivers for you it's OK. I started with Magix video deluxe, went to premiere/encore 1.5 and now I use Premiere cs3 and encore cs3.

My first NLE was a Video Toaster Flyer by Newtek 14 years ago. The change to PC was inevitable and I opted for a DvRexRT system by Canopus. Then I started using Edius since its first inception to this day.

It does everything I need extremely fast, in real time and without crashes.

Cheers

Alex

I use Edius here, I have FCP and CS-3 which I have tried to change to many times but for speed and the type of editing I do I just cant seem to shake off Edius. Maybe in CS4:)

Adobe Premiere Pro on top of Matrox RT-X/100 - The Matrox is buggy and prone to crashing and I need to upgrade anyway to edit HD so looking for alternatives.

Vegas 8 Pro. I started on Vegas movie studio 7 Platinum, then on to Movie Studio 8 Plantinum, then to 8 Pro. If you aren't using more than 4 video channels and 4 audio channels and aren't syncing multiple cameras, give Vegas Movie Studio Platinum a try. It's less than $100 and extremely powerful. It also is extremely similar to Vegas Pro. Its a low-risk, low-cost way to edit and see if you like the Vegas system.

V8Pro + DVDA5 now pretty happy with it, although it has it's quirks and crashes. Burned discs are good and compatible with ever player I throw them at, including now HD on standard DVDs in a BR player!

in the past...
Used Magix, liked it a lot, good multitrack capability, but at the time I used it, the burned disc compatibility was not so good...

Used Ulead Video studio - came with a firewire card for free, was worth quite a lot more... got a good start for me with a "real" NLE!

Movie studio (yeah the included Microsoft thing) - nice toy... took one look, didn't bother.

Sony Vegas studio... switched to this and finally got good compatibility of the burned DVD's, eventually went "pro"

In short, NLE agnostic, only thing I care about is how well the final product turns out and if the DVD plays (and all the menus work properly!!!) in whatever player I toss it into...

CS3. I've been using Adobe since Premier 1. I've also used FAST (one of the first hardware NLEs for the PC) and Media 100.

I really liked the Media 100, but I'm a PC guy now.
