I bought Final Cut Studio, and I'm also a professional software developer so that's MY money the pirates aren't paying, but...I've also got a lot of sympathy for budding filmmakers with NO CASH where they just want to get some experience with professional tools. I wish there was a "vimeo version" of Final Cut that was free for noncommercial use.Pro users often *want* to spend money on software and support, because a thousand bucks is cheap compared to a lost day of post.
Final Cut Express is less than $150. Since 99% of what you learn in FCE translates to FCP, that's a great way to get some experience with professional tools. I know not all software has an "Express" version, but in the case of Final Cut, I find it very hard to be sympathetic to anyone who steals/cracks/torrents it when Final Cut Express is cheap, would most likely serve all their needs, and gives them a ton of skills to allow them to potentially get a job using FCP.
