Post-SolidWorks Video Editing Software

I wanted to ask if anyone is using video editing software to modify animations that are made using SolidWorks. If so, what software do you use, what you like/dislike about it, and what kind of editing you do with it (with regards to the SW animation).



I have been using the motion study feature in SW to create animations, move/bend parts, hide/show, make transparent, etc. I would like to add some simple additions to the animation that I believe will require video editing software. Things like:

Changing aspect ratio by cropping out the top/bottom or left/right sides.
Adding pauses, overlaying another image during the pause, then fading out the image and continuing the animation.
Adding captions, logos, notes, intro or outro credits, etc.
Adding narration.



I think my needs in terms of video editing are pretty basic. So, has anybody played this game? What software do you use? So far I'm looking at Adobe Premiere, Corel VideoStudio, and Sony Vegas to start.



I don't have SW Composer (which looks awesome), and I also don't havethe budget for Composer.



Let me know what works for you.
