As a student you qualify for stupidly discounted prices on most software...
At my college where I attend I recieved in the mail a brochure about student discount software. In it they have Avid Xpress Pro HD for $295US. I don't really know anything about the program or how much it would normally cost. Is this a pretty sweet deal? Would I be silly for passing it up?
Yippee for me!
I knew there was a reason why I'm a married 24 yr. old father who still has two more years of school left and is sufficiently alienated form most of the other people on campus!
Oh... but anyway, is Avid Xpress Pro HD good? Oh wait, I know the answer, "Download the trial version and see how you like it."
See? I'm learning!
Oh gosh, Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5 for $250 US!!
Stupid question. but can't find the answer on there site. does Avid pro handle H.264? I need a software to edit for my sony HDR-sr1 file. what is the best software?
Simple answer, Yes.
Avid Express is by far the best edit suite I've ever used. I've not got time to go into the in's and out's of it right now but basicly if it's good enough for 95% of films/TV shows like (gotta love wiki)...
