Being relatively new to the world of video editing I'm sure I'm not the only one who's a little confused as to the plethora of software available out there and how it all interacts with each other.
I'm currently using Sony Vegas Pro 8 as my main program but is this all I need? I keep seeing things like Adobe After Effects / FX Home effects lab etc etc and am wondering if I really need these to complement what I already have or whether they even work alongisde Sony Vegas??
I'm not, at present, into creating lightsabre effects / lasers etc (although as the kids grow up this will probably change) but do these programmes serve other purposes that I may need for my general promotional videos of hotels, guest houses etc or will Sony Vegas be enough?
If someone could shed some light on what you actually need and if you need additonal software what goes with what in the world of video editing software, that would be great!!
