I have been using iMovie, but want to move up to Final Cut Express, but am a little hesitant to get into it. It seems more complicated, or else its just tougher after a few beers.
What do you thnk?

for the realy uber-filmmers using 16mm film, they need an entire studio with splicers etc, and a high res scanner, huge-as computer etc.. =a few years of college tuition.
final cut pro
lots of plugins that take care of color correcting/effects
they also use creativity, thousands of dollars and spend days editing and rendering.
so heres the thing i use Final Cut Pro 6 HD and integrate Motion 3, soundtrack pro, Shake, and DVD Studio Pro all the time. And in recent news Apple is thinking about selling FCS and that could mean big changes which would suck.
haha i went from pinnacle to imovie then to fcp. i looked at that shit and taught myself a lot but went and took certification classes anyways. Motion is what confuses everyone i know. tons of hours spent teaching myself that and its money andd easy. all bout time and patience
This is pretty much right on. I know Adobe Premier Pro like the back of my hand... and although it's a damn good program, it really doesn't mean anything to know it... moving to Final Cut Pro in a few monthes...
AVID is the industry standard with the exception of the indie film industry which is moving more and more toward FCP. Many animation studios have their own proprietary animation software, but AVID is too well developed and powerful for editing 4K and even 8K online film scans to be reinvented by every Hollywood company. With that said, AVID is rather difficult to learn and use and not user friendly at all.
