ya missed one; "Audio Hi-Jack"
.. This little puppy allows you to Record from Anything .. ANYTHING! .. :shark:

Yeah, I've used that before for recording Skype. But it lacks the awesome gimmick of lossless mp3/aac editing that Fission has, that's the part I've never seen in any other audio editor.
.. can we bribe someone to fix this little error? ( hint hint ) :up: :shark:

Oh heaven's no, both apps are produced by the same company. Why sell one great product with full functionality when you can make more money selling multiple different ones that do very little!

Not really my usual hangout and I can see that this topic is somewhat half-hearted but whatever. Is it possible you mac users can give me a rundown of what the most COMMON non-linear editors and effects applications in use are? I have just been informed that some code I'm working on won't actually work on OSX the way it was intended and as such I'm considering writing some custom plugins for a few apps to provide either limited functionality for my code, or possibly semi-global functionality for the framework it is part of.

At the moment I only want to consider Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, and POSSIBLY AutoDesk stuff, but if people can tell me what other software is in use and direct me to information on extending the output formats via plugins or whatever else, that would be most helpful.

I will not be offering more information at this stage as I have no idea if I can support OSX at all, but if anyone is really knowledgeable on plugins etc for these apps, please get in touch with me on IRC and I can provide further details.

The Final Cut family (FCE, FCP, Motion) and iMovie are probably the other two common ones you don't have listed there. They're all made by Apple, so they're very tightly tied to Quicktime, so a QT component would probably work there. The only docs I'm aware of on how to write those, though, are Apple's own from the ADC.

Video Editing Software:

Title: SCREENFLOW
Company: Telestream Inc.
System: Mac OSX 10.6.4+
Web link: http://www.telestream.net/screen-flow/overview.htm
Price range: $99.99 via download
Trial version? Yes (website only)

Looks the same as iMovie...not impressive at all. Good thing there's a free trial version.

Image editing software:

Title: PIXELMATOR
Company: Pixelmator Team
System: Mac OSX 10.6+
Web link: http://www.pixelmator.com/
Price range: $29 via Mac App Store ONLY
Trial version? Yes (website only)

I would say that PIXELMATOR is giving Photoshop a run for its money. For $670 less, PIXELMATOR can do just about anything Photoshop can do. From what I can see, there are a lot of the same filters, color adjustments, blending modes, tools, brushes and full-customization of each. Even the layout of the program is similar in regards to windows and tool palettes. Think of this app as the "things most people use photoshop for anyway" program. Its Photoshop with black windows. If you already have Photoshop, I would still reccomend this program.

I did this in about 15 minutes:

NOt as useful without the mpeg2 playback component.

I prefer:

Title: HANDBRAKE
Company: (open source)
System: Mac OSX 10.5+
Web link: http://handbrake.fr/downloads.php
Price range: free

Granted, not as much pre-processing filters as most (and it only converts to m4v) but since you're converting from DVDs anyways...the quality is perfect. I ripped countless DVDs so far (720x480 res) with no clarity degradation and no black lines, stuttering, combing, nothing. It even converts other video files to m4v.
