First After Effects then Premiere Pro.

My early editing software was Magix Movie Edit its great for amateurs, somehow limited compared to Premiere imo.

I say Premiere Pro + Photoshop are the most essential. I really only use After Effects for masking nowadays, but I wanna try to explore it more.

I used Windows Movie Maker for my early editing but moved into Adobe Premiere 6.0-6.5 after 2002. I used MS Paint for most of my rotoscoping...

anything but Movie maker\ulead for editing the core, then after effects and photoshop for the smexiifying part *coughs* very off topic, but guess who'll be getting a macbook pro this Christmas.. and guess who'll empty his or her bank account and withdraw all his\her savings ?D

2. best editing program..s... I'd say a combination of Premiere pro as core and After Effects for the visual flashy part and Photoshop.

2. from 5-50 minutes on an average scale.

I like the Cycore and Sapphire plugins. And sometimes I also use the Trapcode plugins. I've got a bunch but I try to restrain myself a bit.

newb Q 1. you either mask an area or character out or key it out. I recommend lightkey for keying. you can either mask the person in photoshop or in the video editing program. After Effect's got a pretty handy pen tool for the masking part

newb Q 2.

Thanks if you are going to respond to this and taking your time to answer my questions:

1. What do you feel is the best movie editing program?

some examples include Adobe Premiere, Ulead 11, Magix Movie Edit, Windows Movie Maker, Video Wave, etc

2. About how long does it take for you to make an AMV?

-a low quality 30 second - 1 minute AMV
-a high quality 1-2min + AMV

3. What do you use as your major plugins?

And since i'm a beginner, some more "noobish" questions

1. How do you create a bluescreen over certain characters?
for example, i've seen AMVs where a character is doing something over a different scenery than normal
i.e. if naruto is eatting ramen in a scene, after editing, he'll be eating ramen on top of a tree >.>

2. what is rotoscoping? O_o


thanks a million, i'd like to learn how to make some AMVs in the future, so tutorials would be wonderful  ;D
