When I wrote my series on a video editing workflow back in 2017, I had settled on Adobe Premiere Pro as my video editing suite of choice. Despite the rather hefty price tag, I felt the toolset it provided me with – particularly the ability to synchronise clips based on audio profile – was worth it. Since then, I started encountering some usability bugs when editing clips from certain cameras, and let multi-cam support be multi-cam support, replacing it entirely with iMovie.
I’ve been using Adobe Premiere pro for a while now, but am finding that I can’t really defend the cost of Adobe Creative Cloud. While having multicamera support has been very nice, the product quite simply is cost prohibitive for me, especially as it really only offers a single feature I need; the ability to sync clips based on their audio. For my needs, iMovie will suffice.
