That said, it really shouldn't matter how complex the program is because you'll figure it out eventually. I think Vegas offers more masking tools out of the box than Premiere so if you want to be able to do more with one program, perhaps Vegas is the way to go. That said, if you invest in the Adobe Production Suite, you can get After Effects which will take care of that problem and then some.
I would download the trial version of Premiere and see if you like it. Then go from there.

Going to have to agree here... I have used vegas for sometime now (which also seems unstable and harder on a computers resources) I moved to Premier+After Effects which I already had experience in AE prior to making amvs for other stuff but I am new to premier and this was easy to jump into and figure out
Vegas also has to load the media on the timeline each time you switch between programs and Premier does not do this.. AE offers your masking which is easier and actually less complex than Vegas...
Just my experience go which ever way you feel more comphortable
