Arrow Digitizing software learning curve

For all you digitizers out there who respond to my newbie question thank you in advance. We all know that digitizing software costs an arm and a leg these days or any other day for that matter so I want to make sure that I'm not just gonna throw my money away when or if I decide to bite the bullet and finally learn some digitizing. I do have an embroidery machine (tajima tfmx c1501, had barudan single head before). My question is, for someone like me who is computer literate (at least I think I am ), is learning a digitizing software all that difficult? Appreciate your input!

I've tried Wilcom ES Designer, Tajima Tajima DG/ML by Pulse and Compucon EOS. My vote goes to Wilcom for the most user-friendly interface of the 3. The way things are laid out is just very intuitive for me. I guess it's because Wilcom has been around forever and so they've had lots of time to implement the feedback they receive from digitizers.

i use eos and i learned on it so i cant speak for the others. going from graphic design to digitizing takes alot of patience.if you have patience and someone that you can call for help then go for it.
knowing and watching designs sew out is real important so you can learn alot from that before you start.i used to watch designs for 1 1/2 years to learn it and just to see how entrys, exits & fills were done.
it takes time and lots of patience to digitize when starting out.
when you start out you will see how it progresses then you can take it from there.
you will know if you are cut out for it or not.

Used Wilcom, Bought Floriani Embroidery Suite 2009 - it's an absolute pleasure and extremely user friendly! Yes, it's difficult, stick with it, everybody started where you are now!

Sweet's, is your opinion referring to Floriani software or Wilcom? I've been looking into Floriani and I like what I've seen so far, but I haven't heard much about it. I would get Wilcom if I could afford it, but I haven't heard how Floriani stacks up against it.

The challenge when digitizing is learning how to apply the software tools to handle the effects of the "push and pull" of embroidery on different fabrics types. I would imagine that you'll be creating designs that look great on a moniter but it takes experience to learn how designs sew-out on different fabrics. Also, there are other issues such as artwork interpretation and an understanding of color that can affect your ability to become a good digitizer.
