You might be looking for Adobe Premiere Pro alternatives for several reasons. Premiere Pro is one of the most well-known video editing programs on the market and an industry-standard app used by professional editors to assemble Hollywood movies, TV shows and much more. Its popularity is to a broad range of features and the precise control it enables editors to have over all the details of an edit. It's also regularly adding new features to keep ahead of the competition, such as the new AI tools unveiled in October 2023.

However, it’s not the right choice for everyone. The most common criticism against Premiere Pro is that its subscription pricing model is expensive for long-term users, while many customers have also criticised the app’s performance and Adobe’s poor customer support. Plus, as it’s a complicated programme, it’s not the most accessible for novice editors.
