My new laptop should arrive soon (Alienware m11x). I plan on buying Premiere or avid (whatever is the cheapest). I am a film student, who has taken a couple classes on Final Cut Pro. I currently own a nice machine with FCE. Film editing is a major interest of mine, and might actually be my major. However I feel that I have not done that much with final cut to commit yet (although I really really like it) My issue is I rather just keep one computer at a time (for constancy and money!). Seeing as FCP is the industry standard (at least for amateur/low level projects), would I be a fool to start learning a different system, that is not as widely used? I know that the same non linear editing fundamentals apply to both systems. Has anyone used both and can reassure that Adobe/Windows is not evil for video editing? Or should I keep my iMac and stick with final cut.?
