MSPro 7 much easier to use and much cheaper than prem.

Prem not as easy, much more expensive than MSpro, but has a more professional feel to it. Better FX, transitions and filters.

Mspro also suffers from a strange sound anomaly that I don't like when fading in and out between audio channels. You get tiny volume spikes. This could just be my system though. Doesn't happen in prem.

I'm using Mspro for editing fraps captures (quicker than having to re-encode fraps AVI's).

Check out prices on Amazon, MSPro dirt cheap compared to prem.

I highly recommend Sony's Vegas 4.0, compared to Premiere, it is much more 'user' friendly but hold onto all the professional tools that Premiere has. I do have Premiere 6.5 and Vegas 4.0 so I know the difference. The only bad thing that Vegas, in comparison to Premiere, is the rendering time, Vegas is much slower than Premiere.

Ah no! I couldn't do without my lovely adobe 6.5.

It really does take the biscuit and swallow whole it in one swift motion /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

From what ive seen the Ulead package is better. It can do everything Premiere can and more. Its said to be really user friendly aswell. However, if you've been using Premiere for a while it might take a bit of getting used too.
Its not as popular yet in the industry as Premiere or Avid but there have been a few high profile music video's an stuff made with it (Boyzone etc.) that i can remember. It certainly cuts the mustard!

Look at these reviews

Not knocking Premiere, its very capable and is industry standard (i think) but the interface is a nightmare sometimes. And the price is silly. Uleads gonna be alot cheaper i bet. Last time i looked Premiere was around 600.

I haven't tried Ulead's DV Editing program, but I'm fairly happy with Adobe Premiere.

Although not as well known, Sony's Screenblast is also an excellent user friendly software package.

I use MSPro 7. The interface is very user friendly, it integrates 5 pieces of software into one package including a rotoscoping tool, audio editor and title editor along with a complete capture suite.
My only regret and it is only one, is that unlike premiere it has no command function for "razor at edit line".Just in-case you don't know what this is, it means that you scrub the timeline to the frame that I want to cut the video at, and using the above commande, the video is split. MSPro just doesn't have this function, and the scissors tool has to be manually selected and used to cut the video line. It's a 'niggly' point, but that really is my only fripe with this professional and affordable editing package.
