Feature Overview: Final Cut Pro vs. Adobe Premiere
|Features||Final Cut Pro||Adobe Premiere|
This feature enables the softwares’ users to animate the text in their content. It also allows them to edit the text’s properties, like font type, size, colour and opacity. Given that it’s quite an essential feature for editors, it’s offered in both softwares.
Simply put, this feature allows editors to add sounds to their videos and to mess around with them. They can cut something out or add some background music. Again, given it’s importance, it’s a feature that comes in both softwares.
Time mapping is basically editing the video to be played either at a slower or faster rate to the one it was shot at. For example, editing the footage to be played in slow motion.
A content library provides the editors with a library of stock images, videos and vector graphics to include in their final products. This is especially useful when editors or the producers want to include something in the video, but filming it themselves is tricky or expensive.
Integration is an extremely important feature that allows the editors to integrate their work among several editing, animation and softwares. One software might have a function that another doesn’t or might add to the final product, so integrations are important.
Motion tracking allow for dynamic graphics. This allows editors to have pictures or tect, for example, follow a moving object in the video.
