You'll probably find Final Cut in most Mid to Upper-Mid production situations.

The really high end stuff is often done on Avid Media Composers, Smoke and Flame systems.

Many of the FC users I know though have begun to bail saying that FC has taken a nasty turn with it's latest iteration. Adobe Premiere + After Effects is making big inroads of late.

I've always used Sony Vegas Pro. I am a few versions back with Vegas Pro 7, so can't really comment on the newer versions. I hear a lot about Adobe products, but have never used them.

I use FCPX and am finding it fits my workflow well.

For the productions you're talking about OP I would go Premiere or Avid. You could work with FCP 7 as it still has legs as long as we don't get funking codecs involvement. It's all based on quicktime so as long as you can get a quicktime component for it FCP7 will work fine.

I personally don't think FCP X is ready for primetime.

If you aren't sharing projects, who cares what the industry standard is? Use what you can afford and what works. Again, my suggestion is Premiere Pro, Avid and FCP 7.

PS... You can still buy FCS3 from Apple. I just bought a few seats not too long ago.

I think if you actually use effects etc then it matters but aside from that they all pretty much do the same thing. I've got Vegas, Adobe and FC and always end up back at FC :lol:

Professional editors currently working with FCP are looking for alternatives now that Apple has effectively abandoned the pro market, so I wouldn't start there. It's not practical for a business to use a software vendor who EOLs a product with no warning. Current top dogs are Premier and Avid. Smoke is getting a lot of press with their release of Smoke 2013 (free beta out now) which has effects built in.

Professional editors aren't just going to drop FCP right now because they aren't updating it. It will still have legs for years to come. When you have thousands of dollars in plugins for multiple seats you don't just up and switch. Sure, looking for alternatives for 3 years out or so, but what CAN'T FCP do now or in the near future that others will be able to? It's based of quicktime so as long as new codecs have quicktime components you'll be able to use them. Transcoding has been such a major part of workflow for years it's not that big of a deal to do that as well. I really think the doom and gloomers for FCP are funny. Sure, learn Premiere or Avid on your free time to get your chops up to speed so that when you decide to change in 2-3 years.

And as far as between the 2/3 of who will be on top? You're playing with fire adopting one over the other right now. If you put 2 years into premiere and realize that Avid once again has the stronghold, then you are 2 years behind the 8 ball and right back to where you were. I say, let the industry decide what the next mid-high level standard will be convert then. For the time being, stick with your FCP stations. I know I have no intention of switching over our seats anytime in the near future.

This! Most logical thing I've read on this subject. As an editor for a TV Station that uses a mix of Avid, FCP, Premier (Depending on departments) I say use whatever works. It's the end product that matters.

the industry standard is final cut studio but thats mac only but adobe after effects and adobe premiere are also industry standard and work awesome together when you see special effects in movies it was most likely done in after effects or motion (part of final cut studio) and remember if your going to be doing video editing make sure you have atleast 3 gigs of ram

No Premiere is not an industry standard. In the med-high industry it is Avid or FCP. Those are the 2 standards. Sure you can use Premiere, Vegas, Edius, etc. but they aren't standards

After Effects works just fine with FCP. It doesn't round trip as easy as Premiere but I can transfer XML between the 2.

Also, while AE is VERY heavily used in the film industry, most "movies" that have special effects use a hell of a lot more than just AE.

You're simplifying it way too much.
