Love your reply which hit the nail on the head.
Many of us are hobbyist, learning the ropes.
Many out there have confused me a lot about some leading softwares. I can only afford the Sony Vegas Movie 9 Platinum Pro pack
which cost me RM549.00 fully LICENSED and is an original software. Not a trial version or a pirated copy.
Many have argued that, that is better than that and the other 'that' is better than 'that'...blah...blah.!!
But folks, do you know just how much does a licensed purchase of the famous Final Cut Pro cost? How about the cost of Adobe CS 3?
I can't imagine spending anything around RM8,000.00 for a software. What ever for?
No, I do not own a production house that makes millions of ringgit nor works in a studio who uses the software paid by a company
which can afford such cost. Remember this....it is still not YOUR software.
Try buying it yourself without the famous "STUDENT" discount or group discounts version.
Many butt their heads in to comment but please, please think about us hobbyists who is so broke and cannot afford to even smell
the Adobe, Grass Valley or Apple's.
I keep leaving this forum after some sad comments and I do not know why I just keep coming back here. Maybe because there are still
some kind folks who understand that we are only hobbyist and still need to learn from each other.
I am sincere that the administrator of this website wants many of us to comment and help each other.
So I humbly wish that we all keep it this way. Thank you.
Sorry folks, this is only my 2 sens worth.
