From what I've been reading in these forums, the three most recommended video editing programs seem to be Ulead VideoStudio 8, Pinnacle Studio 9, and Adobe Premier elements. What I think is odd is that everyone keeps saying that Adobe is expensive, but the prices I have seen for these three editors is pretty close (Ulead: $99.95, Pinnacle: $79.99, Adobe: $99.99). Am I missing something, or has Adobe dropped their price. Or is everyone talking about Adobe Premier Pro ? (priced at $699). Also, how does this software compare to Nero or Windows Movie Maker? What sort of features do they have that Nero and Windows don't?
