This choice entirely depends on the student’s interest & his/her objective in learning the editing course. If the purpose is to get a career in films or in Satellite channels, then its better to choose between Avid or FCP, as Premiere pro is not favored in these industry in India. If the purpose is to work only on simple video editing like Short films, Wedding videos, Corporate videos etc, Premiere pro is sufficient.

Some film editors use Avid & others use FCP, & it’s the same situation with satellite channels too. So we would suggest that you learn both, as it would increase your career opportunities. But it’s up to you to decide, depending upon your interest & requirement.
