comment How does one edit and save clips once and reuse in multiple videos with Adobe Premiere?
In the import dialog, you can choose to import the entire project or selected sequences. Just gather your reusable clips in a single sequence and import just that. Or if even that's too much, you'll have to create a sequence for each source clip and then import just that. More trouble than it's worth, IMHO.

comment Can't export .mov with premiere pro cs5.5?
Which OS are you using? From your Q, it appears that you just want to convert a clip, has it been edited in any way? If not, that opens up non-Premiere possibilities.

What's the source container and AV codec? Is the OS Windows?

comment Choosing the right program for video editing
Yeah, this is not the place for a discussion. In the answer, your description makes it sound like Vegas is some sort of bizarre hybrid. Just wanted to clarify that it's not. It's a NLE like Premiere, and does everything needed to sequence and stack audio/video/image files. It just happens to provide track-level compositing modes like in AE, and its audio tools are unusually strong for a NLE.

Did you have anything specific in mind? Because all the capabilities you listed for PPro apply to Vegas as well. Till recently, Vegas had limited ability for plugins, but with OFX support, I suspect that will change in a year or two.

Vegas is a NLE, the same as Premiere, so I'm confused as to what you think Premiere can do that Vegas can't.

comment How do I remove audio from all files in a directory with ffmpeg?
My apologies. My original answer was Avanti, which would do the job very simply. Then I saw that you were running linux, and Avanti is Win-only. I had used WinFF a long time ago and is cross-platform and has a job queue. However, you have to form a preset by manually inputting the command line (not the case in Avanti). The reason for suggesting a frontend is that you don't need to worry about quirky syntax issues such as parameter sequencing or flag overrides or the like. If you can do this on Win, Avanti will do the job easy.

comment How to join 2 youtube videos with different ratios (16:9 and 4:3)?
The default Youtube player is 16:9, and the Youtube video editor creates a new video, so there's no harm in just trying and making a new merged video. If it's not fine just delete it.

comment Sony Vegas 10 Video made from smaller quicktime mov videos look crap on youtube
This should be an action of last resort. Youtube is by far the largest video hosting site on the net, and I've rarely seen problems of the sort shown in this case. This is most likely the result of some undesirable encoding parameters in the video sent to YT, most likely the scheme of I/B/P frames used.

comment What video codecs can provide “adaptive quality”?
You can't get both quality and computational efficiency. There's a tradeoff.

Looks like compression artifacts. Try rendering from Vegas to uncompressed AVI in native resolution i.e. 848x480 @ 24 fps. Then convert in SUPER to mp4 at a bitrate of about 2500 kbps; keep the native resolution and frame rate. Note that your source footage isn't HD, so it will look blurred if upscaled.
