Hi!

I have been in stock photography for more than 10 years now so I guess this is the high time to try my luck with stock footage.

What software would you recommend for editing stock footage. In particular I mean color grading, slow motion, adding flares etc. I know After Effects of course, but maybe there is a cheaper alternative to start with ?

Thanks!

DaVinci Resolve is free you can certainly do a lot with it though it will not import sound from certain cameras.

Well After Effects is really motion graphics and compositing oriented, good part of which is Premiere capable of but more video editing oriented, especially if you are used to other Adobe products for photos, workflow is rather similar. Subscription is not that high, $20 something monthly I think.
That said, having previously used both Sony Sound Forge, Acid and Vegas, workflow is a bit different and slower but I still find Vegas a lot more visually easier for editing and quick work that doesn't demand much keying and compositing. I think it might be better suited for oldschoolers, don't know who owns it know and how much is it thou.

Agree. Version 15 Free works for me just fine...

I started with video fairly recently and use Premiere Pro.

Quite impressed with it, pretty easy/quick to use so no steep learning curve.

DaVinic Resolve is an amazing tool!
In free version you don't have Noise reduction and motion blur (and no 10-bit video which is less important).
But you need a good video card for it to work - at least 4Gb of video memory, better 6Gb and 8-11Gb to really enjoy editing.
When compared to After Effects DaVinci is much faster and offers better workflow.
