Seeing as you're asking at FXhome.com, I imagine most people will say CompositeLab. smile

Your best bet is to try out the demos of both products, compare the different prices and see which fits your needs the best.

Given the massive price difference between the two programs, I'm not sure a comparison is really relevant.

COmbustion is much like AE. So people who use both can give you some comparison.

I personally use combustion a lot but not fxhome product so i can compare. But i love combustion a lot... can't work without it.

I can't really say. I love Clab cause i have it and it works great, but Autodesk has some great programs as well. I know them for the machining aspect, not the filmmaking part. IMO Clab cause it is more user friendly than any Autodesk program i have seen so far.
