It's still in preorder stages and not out on the market...yet. I am quite happy with CS3 but would like to know what type of FX and features they added to the new CS4. I may be getting the new Panasonic 100B (HDV version) and have been told Premiere CS4 will work well with HDV setups.

It will be interesting to see how well it all works. As always, it's best to give it a few months and see how it works. For now I am sticking with CS3.

Thing is every production crew I've worked on either uses Avid or Final Cut Pro. I've never seen anyone use Premiere in school or on any paying job...
I think it's because Avid works well with ProTools and those who enjoy Macs like to stick with that machine and work on FCP.
Overall I may just go with Avid as I am learning it in College now and as much as I hate the interface, I think I should really spend more time working on it...

3DBuzz.com has some outstanding Premiere CS3 videos which have really helped me a lot when learning the new program. The videos are free to view but you need to register for their site. Overall they are a great group of people. They do contests on their "nighly hour" show and have a lot of helpful videos. If anyone does any type of ED modeling work they are the site to go to.

I've always used Premiere Pro. i started off with Premiere Pro 2.0 but now i'm on CS3 Smile.

My media studies teacher says its good to start off with premiere pro because it is similar to many other NLV editors, except for avid, he says to keep as far as possible from that unless your thinking about becoming serious about editing and even then wait untill years after college.

Most of the NLEs (Premiere, Avid, FCP) all do the same thing but sometimes they do it all a little differently. I have been learning Avid and can say it has it's little quarks that I dislike about it however it works somewhat similar to Premiere and I am happy I knew how to work Premiere before learning Avid because it has given me some "Experience" and made the learning curve of Avid a little easier.

The thing I don't like about Avid the most is how basic it looks. It seems like someone just took a day to lay out interface and the next person said "That looks AMAZING!!!" Rolling Eyes
You cant really move tracks around by dragging them like you can in Premiere, (something else I don't like about Avid...) but once you learn the program you can do quite a bit with it.

I have never worked with FCP in person but many people say its similar to all the other major NLEs.

Once again, when looking for jobs you will see most people asking that you know Avid or FCP. My teacher keeps saying FCP is really stepping up and I see that myself. When looking around 85% of business seem to work with FCP compared to Avid...

Avid is the industry standard and so I don't think it will ever fade away completely.

i cant see avid losing it market share easily but premier and fcp are making their way up the ladder to success. a lot of nationally broadcasted tv shows in the uk are starting to be editing with FCP and most surprisingly Premiere pro, but these are still the minority compaired to avid

The reason I think Premiere is becoming so popular these days is because of Adobe Bridge (and mostly due to a lot of changes in the CS line of Premiere)
With Bridge you can easily jump between the Adobe products such as After Effects and Photoshop without needing to export. With Avid it's a pain to jump to anything other than ProTools as they are completely different companies.

It would be nice if more people around here started using Premiere. I really enjoy working on this NLE.
Still, it's nice to know many different software, you are more likely to get a job if you know more than one or two programs.

I use both Avid and CS3.
I find I use Adobe the most as it is quick and good for keeping the shows on the screen. Avid is a good program but time consuming and has a kind of orquard way of doing things. Adobe is good for fast, get the show out and Avid for take your time to edit longer length films.
