I'm a photographer and graphic designer with a well established business. I am currently working on a short video for a client. I shot the sequences on a Canon 5DII and now need to bring it all together with some motion graphics. I am happy using imovie, photoshop etc but need to get some more serious software to do this one properly. I currently have CS5.5 Design Premium. I've been trying to avoid Creative Cloud due to the price (compared with updates every 18 months or so) and not really wanting to be tied in to it. The alternative is to get a straight upgrade to CS6 Design Premium and buy Final Cut Pro X. The cost over 12 months is about the same although the following 12 will be more with Creative Cloud. How do Premiere/After Effects compare to FCPX/Motion from a basic user's level? - I'm not making Hollywood movies here just short but professional looking videos for websites. If FCPX has less features but is quicker to get working in then it is probably the one for me.
