Would like comments on the above two products--trying to decide which to move to.

Background:

I've used AutoCAD for years and am getting proficient at SketchUp but need a program that does more seamless integration between 2D and 3D, along with less tedious planting plans. I've been using a trial of VectorWorks which is good and seems to have many users and a lot of training. But like the idea of using AutoCAD and SketchUp based products, such as Land F/X, since I already know them rather than moving to a different platform.

I'd appreciate any thought

I can't comment on Land F/X, but the planting tools in Vectorworks are pretty robust, thought from AutoCAD, it would be quite an adjustment. That said, I only use VW for plan view stuff and not for an integrated 2D/3D environment. The output is not that appealing, and the navigation too clunky and more difficult than SketchUp, so I end up going back and forth anyway. Let me know if you have any Vectoworks-specific questions, I'd be happy to try and help.
