Would appreciate any suggestions, and not looking to spend 200.00.


MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    For serious video editing I would instead suggest finding a local video editing group, and go around and beg someone for a cheap copy of Video Editor for Mac


    If your just doing consumer video editing, I recommend iMovie for Mac OS X, which is avaliable as a free download from Apple here, and was the last pre-iLife version which was free for download (It says update, but I recall thats a full version, and its the same version as distributed for free on Mac OS X Panther retail CDs):http://support.apple.com/downloads/iMovie_3_0_3

    Is that just original imovie that comes with mac? or does that have the features such as slow mo and fast forward as i was speaking about? And yeah i'm not looking to do any crazy serious editing. Just some personal videos.

    I'm only looking for those two features. Someones gotta be able to help me out and know what my options are.

    Check out Avidemux, it is arguably the best free video editing software around.

     

    If that doesn't work for you, try Virtual Dub which is also quite good, and also completely free.

    Complete rubbish. iMovie has never been available as a free download, and iMovie version 3 cannot run on an Intel macbook. iMovie 3 is ancient history and was probably the worst version ever issued.

    iMovie 11 has limited slo-mo and fast-forward. Otherwise consider FCPX:

    But your Mac does not have the required specifications:

    I've been asking a few questions on the Final Cut Pro forum about the lack of mts support, or rather the lack of the software's ability to recognize mts files stored on the hard drive, it can only import mts files direct from a camera/camcorder. The reason I was looking at FCP was because I was told that iMovie 11 doesn't support AVCHD/mts.

    I share this smart and professional Video Editor for Mac

     

    You can use it to edit video files mac, cut video files mac, trim video clips mac, split video mac into smaller ones, join/merge several video files into one mac, adjust effects(Brightness,Constrast,Saturation)… set many encoding parameters including resolution, encoder, frame rate, video bitrate, batch convert your video clips to a range of different formats like AVI, WMV, MOV, DV, MPEG-4 etc with extremely fast encoding speed and exceptional quality.

     

    It is easy to use. Just free download it now.
