Hi, I'm trying to use iMovie to edit a movie. My primary tasks will be:


- cutting portions out of the video

- using both the audio part of the video plus new audio clips -- that means positioning them at desired points within the movie. And at any given point I may have multiple audio clips.


I've started working with a short video clip to see if I can do these things. The first problem I ran into was trying to move a music clip (that I added from iTunes) after putting it into the video. I can drag the start point, but the music doesn't go with it. That is, the music initially begins at the point to which I inserted it. But if I drag the beginning point to a later frame, the music just starts at a later point, not at the beginning.


I've read a little about iMovie that makes me think perhaps it cannot do the tasks I need. If that's true, will Final Cut do it?


Thanks a lot,
