Be afraid, Be very afraid [Big Grin]

I have been playing with my new toy, an apple mini mac and so have been a bit distracted, have to say though it is beginning to impress me. Can't believe it is all doing this from a box no bigger than my kids' lunch box.

Never used Apple before and if it carries on the way it has so far I will be moving over full time. Operating system is stable, I have manged to link to my IPAQ...if I can link it to the GS I will be back on topic [Wink]

Tony, welcome to Mac World! Although I do keep a PC for certain softwares, I've been doing most of my work on a Mac for the last 15 years. I'm currently experimenting with Imovie for redubbing some german prints (purchased from Andreas) back into their original language...

Hi everyone,

I love using a Mac. The iMovie editing program is great.
A few years ago, Adobe software developed
Movie editing software for Mac and PC known as Premiere.
The last version for Mac was 6.5
Today only the current versions are made for PC and Windows XP.
At the time it was a Pro application, and it enabled you to save the
movie, in a multitude of different frame rates. For example, 18fps,
24fps @ 50 htz or 60 htz.
Etc.

Best,
Michael

Michael: Final Cut has taken over Premiere on the Apple platform. But Imovie still rules for quick editing jobs (check this clip I made for a customer of mine...)

Hello Jean-Marc,

Thank you for posting the video. You have a very natural talent in filming and editing techniques. A wonderful job, and I am sure that your clients enjoyed the video clip as much as I have.

Apple's iMovie has infinite possibilities, and it is indeed very easy to use.

Do you have Final Cut or Final Cut Express?

I enjoyed the clip so much, that I wish that I could go for a pony ride too.

Best,
Michael

Thanks a lot Michael.
As a matter of fact, with that video, we have 6 potential customers interested in this ride for the US.
I'll be at the manufacturing plant this Friday so, if you want to order one, just let me know. [Wink]
This video was quickly made: shot, edited, scored (I also did the music), converted to mpeg and put online in less that 1.5 day. That's the great thing about Mac softwares, they are so easy to use.
I have started looking at Final Cut, but the "full" version is a bit beyond my league for now. "Express" seems very interesting, though, as it allows many features such as colour timing, keying, more soundtracks to play with, etc. I will probably purchase it when I get my new Mac this Spring.
The pros I have been talking to told me that they were still using Imovie for preliminary cuts, though...

(Now, this is really getting OT, sorry Grandpa Ian...)
