I am in a video editing class and we are getting to the point in the class where the professor is allowing us to use our equipment at home to do projects as opposed to going into the class to do them. The class voted to use Adobe Premiere 6.5 instead of FCP on the class Macs and because of this vote, all projects must be able to be opened in AP6.5 or they will not be accepted (I voted for FCP). This is where I am running into a problem. Right now, all I have on my lappy is iMovie and the professor highly highly suggested we did not use it. I would like to buy FCP but I know I do not need all of the programs that come with the production suite and unless I have overlooked it, Apple doesn't just sell FCP as a stand alone using my education discount. I wouldn't mind using AP but being that support has been dropped, I don't want to use a dead end software as I plan to use Macs throughout my career (I'm a Film Major). Avid is not an option for me. Any suggestions, advice, ridicule would be greatly appreciated. I would like to make a decision and a purchase by early next week so I can get the software ASAP.
