I'm a relatively new vlogger looking to do more with my videos than what iMovie offers. Does anyone know of any other software that offers some of the features of Final Cut, but with a cheaper price? (I'm looking for greenscreen/bluescreen, better titles, etc...) From what I've heard people suggest Sony Vegas... I just wanted to get some other suggestions/opinions on software.

QUOTE Thanks

It sounds like Final Cut express is exactly what you're looking for, green screen is very easy and thanks to livetype (included) you can make some really cool title animations.

Just FIY, I don't think there is a Mac version of Vegas.

How do you like them Apples?

For $200 Final Cut Express is the little brother of Final Cut Pro. Essentially missing the very high end pro features and extra applications.

For the tight budget, check out Norrkross Movie.

By the way, iMovie 09 does green screen.

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.
