This is one of those
topics... the type there are thousands of.
I'm seeking recommendations on which editing software to evaluate.
When editing previously I used:
2. Premiere 6.5
3. Used the AVISynth/MJPEG swap trick
4. Cut clips in premiere and organized them into subfolders within the project file (this did not generate any new files/folders on the operating system)
5. With 4 this meant all my editing was done with with very large clips (though very easy to extend and access footage outside of the original "clip")
6. (worst of all) Used the 23.976 -> 24fps -> 23.976 conversion to edit within Premiere 6.5
So basically I need an update on which software would fit my needs (3/4/5) and eliminate (6) 24fps-ness. (4/5) is quite critical. On many occasions I just needed a couple of frames before or after a clip's start/end. It saved me a lot of overhead just dragging out a "subclip" instead of having to go back to the source and cut new clips. Also I'll probably be working with DVD if I do anything at all.
I noticed the AMVApp hasn't been updated since 2010. Is this because it is just that awesome/perfect?
