To me the switch to adobe is a no brainer, just need the extra $. I was saving up just for After Effects, but now as you all know I can get AE cheaper in the switch program while getting even more apps. I need AE on my resume and hope to get into a class for AE. The way i do my work for my personal editing business FCX works pretty well, not as well as I hoped, though I love how it works with my camera, Premier works just as well too when I did my 30 day trial. My maim reason for the switch is to understand all editing software, except AVID is a little pricey for what I do, again it would be great on my resume, just can't afford both at the moment. I'm also lucky in a way that I only have Photoshop Elements from Adobe so it's a great deal for me. thankfully I have time to get the money together.
