software Adobe Premier or Final Cut Pro ??

Hello there

I am new to all this video stuff, I have a few Canon cameras a XA10, T6 and a T5i and looking for would be the best editing software ??

Adobe Premiere or Final Cut X ??

My PC is a Intel i7 6700K 4.0Ghz, 64gig of ram, Samsung 970 SSD and NVIDIA Quadro K2200 Video Card

I have a Mac Mini mid 2011 Intel i5 2.3Ghz, 16Gig of ram, Seagate SSD and Intel 3000 512 Video

I Also have a iMac 21.5" Mid 2011, Intel i5 2.5Ghz, 16Gig of ram, Seagate SSD and AMD Radeon HD 6750M 512 Video

Some say that Final Cut X is more efficient then any other, so i might be good with less computer power ???

What are you opinions ???

I think that's a fair question. One that deserves a fair response.

The "best" software DOES depend on many factors and Biggermens
gave some usable information for an experienced editor to offer an
opinion. Even a novice editor can offer up an opinion based on what
Biggermens posted.

While Biggermens didn't specifically use the words, "best for me" I
think that's exactly what this post is asking.

Biggermens; my opinion is to download the 90 day FCP trial and
use it for a couple of months. It's a strong tool.

Hi direcoril

I apreciate the advice, I hear lots of good things of Final Cut Pro
what i am worried is my mac's are not powerful enough, they are
not the fastest machine on earth haha
But i here Final Cut Pro is very efficient, so it might not be a problem
I am looking to edit HD1080
