Excerpt: I recently purchased Adobe Primiere Pro CS6 and have been very happy with the product. Although this is the first video editing software I have purchased, I found it easy to use and had lots of good features. I am an Adobe software Creative Suite user for years and this product did not dissapoint me. I work for a church as a media specialist and edit every week. The only thing I found difficult about the product was the menus were a little hard to read.
Excerpt: I bought this to use on a high-end workstation (i7-3960x, 64GB RAM, RAID disks and SSD disk) and find that it is all but unusable due to the many bugs in the software and useless documentation and product support from Adobe.<br /><br />The package is very powerful, except that many of the features do not work correctly. The multicamera editing, which is a particular reason I got it, has many problems.
Summary: This is a awsome video editing program.\ Very stable, never crashes, and i'v had it for a while. Its got tons of features and it will take a while to learn all of them, but you can make basic videos by the 2nd day. It reguires a hefty computer, i have a P4 @ 2.4 gigahertz, a lighting fast motherboard, 700 something ram and the program is still asking for more.

So I think you can take it as read that I knew pretty much nothing going into this - hey, I like flashing the cash! To be brutally honest, when I first got started with PremierPro I found it pretty daunting, given the sheer volume of possibility it conveys.
Summary: Adobe Premiere is an advanced peice of video editing software. As with most adobe products, the interface is not intuitive and takes time to learn...but it's worth it. Several users have commented about the manual, but I think that the best way to learn anything on computers, ADobe Premiere included, is to teach yourself. You may have to spend a couple hours figuring it out (or, depending on your experience, a couple months...
