In the world of cinematography and film, two giants have emerged at the threshold of the industry. Founded in 1987, the nonlinear editing software called AVID, that would soon take hollywood by storm. By the mid 1990's the many films and dozens of TV shows had switched to AVID, marking the end of cutting celluloid. The program allows editors to handle their film with greater ease. With the emergence of Apple, Final Cut Pro (part of Final Cut Studio) has become quite popular with its easier navigation and interface. Most professionals in Hollywood are still doubtful about the upstart Apple software. However, experts agree, that to choose your editing software, depends upon the type of project to be produced. There is no right or wrong.
