I’m sorry but It’s mis information that adobe is so bad. As an IT consultant for 15 years before getting into filmmaking – Do the research, pick your software, build your system accordingly and keep it clean. I have 0 major issues with premiere over 4 major versions. Other than the warp stabilizer bug that I work around. Computers and software are not 100% reliable. EVER. I don’t hate on other editing software. To each their own. To blanket hate on premiere though is ignorant. Fcpx performs great with respect to render and export times on Mac because the software was developed by the hardware manufacturer itself which is a huge factor and much different than the Windows world with hardware manufacturers being completely separate from the OS company (however if you build your system right on pc premiere equals this easily). I will give credit that davinci has probably the best colouring tools, although I find that if you truly learn your tools and shoot correctly in camera it’s fairly a negligible advantage over fcpx and premiere for the freelance filmmaker. That may be worth it for many however. And that’s awesome. For me I use the entire suite and the dynamic link and I can’t give up After Effects, Audition and Illustrator for the video work that I do. What i see is this (and there is nothing wrong with this). The people that have chronic crashes and issues with premiere have systems that are not optimized for it and/or do not have an efficient workflow. If its easier for you to use fcpx because you are on a Mac or it’s easier to use davinci regardless of OS – you either can’t afford to build/upgrade your computer (and/or take the time or properly configure) – or maybe you prefer the other software workflows (which is great and up to you). The other software is a better fit for you in either case then. But let’s stop saying things simply “suck” or “don’t work” because that’s just not true. Which is a cold hard fact.
