    Question Final Cut Pro -v- Final Cut Express
    Hello all,

    I am new to the Mac world (about 8 months now) and still learning . Even though learning is going slow some times I don't have any urge to go back to PC's and Windows Nightmare's.
    Anyway on to my question.

    1) Can some one please tell me what the difference is between
    "Final Cut Pro 5" and "Final Cut Express 4."

    2)Is there a difference between
    "Final Cut Express HD" and "Final Cut Express 4". Or is "Express 4" and "Express HD" the same program?

    The difference between Pro and Express has to more then just more Filters and Transitions.
    I think I read, (but not sure) that one of the differences is, that it's easier to work with footage from multi cameras with Pro.

    The reason I am asking is, I have "Express HD", and I am editing more videos now then I was about 4 months ago. I am considering buying Pro 5.
    But I wanted to know the main differences between the two. I have tried to look up web site after web site in hopes of finding some kind of info one the three program. But I guess I am looking in the wrong places.

    I know the answer to my question might be a long one, so if any one could point me in the right direction to a web site with the info, that would be awesome too.

    Thanks for any help

    Final Cut pro has way more options for DVD titles, DVD burning options, Compression options. better for multi camera use. final cut pro is way more indepth and extremely deep. If you get it, read the manuals and maybe even pick up a pro series training book from a book store because otherwise its confusing as ****. I hardly know how to use it, I didn't need it but bought it becasue with my student discount it was only a little more than express. sometimes I think express would be easier for what I want to do but its still good to have.
