Considering starting a YouTube channel and would like to have some on-screen visuals for intro/end title cards, periodic popups, things like that. Curious if Photoshop would cut it since I'm most familiar with it, and they've added some new video based features. Or if one of the other Creative Suite 6 apps would be more appropriate - I am a Creative Cloud subscriber. ()

I like what Military Arms Channel is doing, but the channel I'm putting together would be another discipline altogether.

Thanks in advance.

Use Premiere for the editing of the video, Photoshop for the visual inserts. The whole suite works like... well, a suite.

Photoshop is OK for still graphics. After Effects is much better (but another complex program to learn) for stills and animation.

Assemble in Premiere.

Premiere is easy.

You'll be fine.

I highly recommend this book for it:

If you decide to go the After Effects route, I recommend going over Andrew Kramer's tutorials at Video Copilot. He has tutorials specifically for what you are looking for.

After Effects is definitely the professional tool that you're after, but as others mentioned, it's a very complex and deep system to master. Aside from the tools though you need to understand the fundamentals of what, when and why (design-side) more than just which button to push in the program. (this is what I do professionally)
