Hey there, like the the title states. Is it possible to combine two home videos(wedding with 2 different camera angles) into one with imovie and only use the sound from one camcorder or can you recommend software that is not too expensive?

Thanks for your response!!

What you are asking about is 'multicam editing'. Final Cut Pro has this ability built in for up to 16 angles of real-time playback. It can be done with a little extra work in Final Cut Express for $199.

To do it in iMovie would be tricky and time consuming. I think I'd import the video to two different events to keep them separated. I'd then review each to get a feeling of where the scene of interest are and the angles, and I write down any hints. I'd then hi-lite the scene in the event and drag it to the single project in order of interest. After building all of those up, I'd have another project with the video of the audio of interest and export that audio, then bring it into the project, perhaps as background audio, or attached to the first scene. I think you'd have to import it into iTunes first. Then use the precision editor to match the video to the audio.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
