Choosing the Right Video Editing Software

So you’ve gone out, shot your video, and it’s time to do some serious video editing? The way I see it, there are really only three legitimate video editing software applications to choose from: Apple’s Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, or Avid Media Composer.


If you’re an independent filmmaker like me, and you plan to edit on a Mac, then I’d say Apple’s Final Cut Pro X is the best choice for a variety of reasons. Final Cut Pro X is a powerful interface for video editing, color correction, 3D graphics creation, audio editing, and video transcoding.


Some of the features of Final Cut Pro X’s interface include:

  • Event Browser
  • Magnetic Timeline
  • Roles
  • Content Auto-Analysis
  • Synchronized Clips
  • Compound Clips
  • Multicam Editing
  • 3D Titles


With the latest release of Final Cut Pro 10.3 last year comes even greater options to customize your editing workspace and a new, larger inspector window to preview video clips.
