Adobe Premiere 6.5

Digital / desktop video editing software: Adobe Premiere 6.5Delivering unmatched hardware support and real-time editing capabilities, Adobe Premiere 6.5 software is the essential tool for creating video for DVD, videotape, the Web, and more.

Adobe Premiere has traditionally been a wonderful video editing program. It has an extremely full feature set that will allow you to do almost anything to your video. Also, Premiere has got the best documentation and tutorials I've seen in a video editing software. Version 6.5 of Adobe Premiere introduces some more excellent features to an already powerful software. New features include a real-time preview option, a Title Designer, MPEG-2 export, DVD authoring, powerful audio tools, and more.

Adobe Premiere 6.5 is an excellent video editing package for the serious video editing professionals. If you're just starting out with video editing, you may prefer a more intutive program like Pinnacle Studio 8. However, those beginners looking for a package that will long outlive their video editing needs for many years to come, will find a great product in Adobe Premiere.

If there's only one video editing software I can recommend to home video makers, this is the one.
