Sony Vegas Pro 9 or Adobe Premiere CS5? Witch one do you prefer, why? I am currently using Vegas for my videos but I rather ask the community about it :p Currently wanting to use them for intro videos.

Edit*** can I install CS5 in my x86 laptop?

From a media student's point of view, I've worked with many different versions of Final Cut Pro, Sony Vegas and Adobe Premiere but Premiere is still my favourite by a long, LONG shot.

Premiere doesn't tend to be as limiting in my opinion, Some people say that's a stupid reasoning but to be honest i find lots of little things head banging-ly infuriating about Final Cut, Like sometimes it refuses to drag a transition onto a clip unless it's selected and you've got a certain window selected ect. Which irritates the crap out of me to be honest.

And i'm just not keen on Sony Vegas, Can't put my finger on why though.

Take it from a media student, Premiere's the best one by a long shot

Sony Vegas is much easier to use. I used Premiere, and it was confusing as hell even with a book to follow.

Adobe Premiere CS5 is 64-bit only, from what I'm told. If you choose to go to 64-bit operating system, some programs are not compatible with 64-bit operating systems.

my OS is 32 bits, so i don't think i will be able to run it, guess i'll go with CS4.

Go CS5 and get the 64 bit OS. (and 8 gb RAM, it will so be worth it.)

I like 32bit OS rather than 64 :/

What's wrong with 64bit us and why wouldn't you like it?

If this is your job and life, and from what I can tell you are on a Windows machine (they don't make Sony Vegas for Mac), then I would invest in a Mac and use Final Cut Studio.

If you have a Mac, Final Cut Express/Pro. For PC, CS5 by far.
