I'm sure it's different for everyone, but I also edit video and hands down Vegas just made sense to me and in ways I still struggle with Premiere. I guess we all have different brain maps and Cubase is where mine is stuck!
I could do with much better Cubase stability on the MacOS though. I swore to never return to windows and I can't deal with moving between MacOS and Windows with drives and partitions and blah blah blah because I will never be able to escape the Mac ecosystem (nor do I care to). Two different machines and every version from Cubase 8 to 10.5 so far Cubase shuts down the first try on launch and then works on the second attempt. Occasionally, a third party plugin crashes it too just by opening it (usually IK Multimedia plugins), but thank the lord Play always works and never crashes it.
Between Premiere and Cubase I am steady Command+S pusher, but I sometimes lose my work when I'm in the flow and it's super frustrating that auto-save only seems to cover me about 50% of the time. I've just kind of accepted that high functioning software that isn't tied to high end hardware will often not be stable. It feels like I haven't had a 100% stable DAW since... never!
Just so you know Cubase on Windows is totaly crash free...
Just throwing it out there
