Is It Possible?


Pianatuna

Question

Hello,

 

As of October of 2007 I switched to MAC. I have a MacBook Pro with 4 gig ram. I purchased Toast 8 Titanium & Popcorn 3 download earlier today. I was expecting to find something similar to Videowave for editing video clips ( I have EMC 9 on my Windows PC) but for the life of me cannot find any kind of video editor within Toast or Popcorn. When I ordered this over the phone I told the salesman what I wanted to do and that I liked Videowave. He told me that I could edit and import all kinds of video files into Popcorn. Apparently he misunderstood what I meant by "edit". Hopefully I am just missing something. I do have iMovie 8 and Quick Time Pro 7.4.1 but neither has a Timeline editor.

 

If anyone can help or recommend something for video editing on a Mac that is not too expensive (or even free) I would be very grateful.

 

Thanks

Toast and Popcorn don't edit. If all you need is the cut and trim pieces from different video formats including MPEG 2 then get MPEG Streamclip which is free. You'll need Apple's Quicktime MPEG 2 Playback Component which is a $20 download from the Apple Store.

 

You also are entitled to get iMovie HD as a free download from Apple because you have the new iMovie. The previous iMovie is very different and it may serve you to be familiar with both.

Thanks! I had to hunt around for it but I did find it.

 

BTW, wouldn't the $20.00 mpeg playback codec be included with Quick Time Pro 7 which I already have?
