Is there an intermediate level video editing package for mac or pc? Final Cut Pro seems pretty complicated, but intro packages like Ulead Videostudio or Windows movie Maker seem geared towards goofing around with your home movies. Is there anything in the middle? Something in the middle price range would be nice as well..

Final Cut Pro HD is the way to go if you are a mac person. For true entry level you can play with iMovie.

Maybe this should be at the top since Final Cut Express now comes with Livetype, Soundtrack and is can handle HD.

djdb-you'd be suprised at the number of transitions and wipes iMovie has. It's got titles galore too in tons of fonts. Comes with loads of adjustable sound and special effects (I kid you not). The Ken Burns effect is way cool. I'm scared that its new version can handle HD.

If transitions & wipes were the foundation of editing, I guess I'd care about that. iMovie is not an intermediate level NLE. -r

"If transitions & wipes were the foundation of editing, I guess I'd care about that. iMovie is not an intermediate level NLE." No, but considering it comes with every Mac, along with the rest of the iLife apps (which all of course work well together), is easy to learn, it can make it appealing for beginners, and people just looking to edit some home movies here and there.

Not to be a dick, but there might be a point to actually reading the post that kicks off a thread. You know, so that your input will have some level of relevance or validity to it or whatever. -r

iMovie is definitely not intermediate level editing softward but is great for people making home movies or just learning the idea of editing. For what it is, it is great. Compared to what you could get years ago, it is a huge leap. Look how many kids are learning to make movies with this package. Unbelievable actually. These tools are going to help change the future of cinema because it helps kids get into the art at an earlier age.
