Y'all Know I'm a Moron

Somehow, I thought that the DVD that came with the lesson book for Final Cut Pro 6, a professional grade video editing software suite, actually included the FCP program. What the hell was I thinking? That program costs about a grand, even with my student discount! Looks like I won't be doing any home editing of school projects on the Mactop... though my film project will be converted to digital for editing and I'm allowed to use any editor I wish.

Since USB jump drives ain't gonna cut it for video, I just ordered a 500GB LaCie portable external HD to store my raw video. That's a tad more room than the prof said was necessary, but it'll hold at least two classes worth of work.

    Try Final Cut Express. Less green, nearly all the same functionality and the same impenetrable user interface.

    I think my UofA price was $179.

    Is it any better than iMovie?
