Thread: Final Cut Pro and/or Adobe Premiere Pro

  1. #1

    Question Final Cut Pro and/or Adobe Premiere Pro

    Hi, I have been working with Final Cut Pro on my Mac for about a year now and I can say I feel comfortable to use it now. My manager suggested that I could take a course on Adobe Premiere Pro to know both softwares well.


    I thought they are quite similar in use but when I tried to put sth simple together I stumbled a lot.


    Do you think the 2 softwares are much alike in use and, more important, in functionality? Is knowing Final Cut Pro "good enough" skill to have or Adobe Premiere Pro opens more opportunities? Is it worth taking the course for Adobe Premiere Pro or rather find another course that would implement my other skills?


    Please advise me, thank you!

    Final Cut Pro is basically Windows Movie Maker on steroids.
    You can't even compare the depth of Adobe Premiere Pro or After Effects to something like Final Cut Pro.

    Premiere Pro is a serious tool while Final Cut is for the average Joe making a cat video for YouTube.

    If you are serious about your craft - learn Adobe Premiere Pro.

    I second this.

    As an editor it's always wise NOT to pigeon hole yourself into knowing the ins and outs of only one software. They are much alike in many ways and also very different in many ways. It is best to have experience with all either using in a real world environment or learning from tutorials on the web.
