What would you recommend ?
After Effects is fantastic, but its not meant for editing longer videos, and its funny with previewing sound. You definitely couldn't edit sound in AE. Adobe Premier is supposed to be very good, I will be switching over to it soon from Final Cut (don't run a Mac anymore). But its meant more for editing long feature length films, so there's less tools for colour correction, and effects (although I believe they are still there, they're just not as complete as AE's).
Don't know anything about Vegas, but I know its popular with game-play editors.
AE for effects, Premier for editing.
