    #5 Premiere Pro VS Davinci VS FCPX - Post Production

    We start off discussing body mounted flycam vests from Proaim. Nigel recently busted his wrist and is looking for ways to make filming less strenuous on his body.
    We then continue our series about video production by diving into post production. We discuss everything from backing up footage, preferred editing software, to editing workflow.


    The highlight of this episode is the showdown between editing softwares! Each of us uses a different software. This gives us the unique opportunity to discuss the pros and cons of the big three, Premiere Pro, Davinci Resolve and Final Cut Pro X. Which one will come on top as the best video editing software?
