Hi there!

I have an AVI video I must edit. Not a big deal, just a couple of cuts, fades to black and replace the original audio with an AIFF file I have. The video has been made with Xvid codec.

How can I do that? iMovie is excluded cause it doesn't give me enough flexibility. The results of MPEG Streamclip don't satisfy me either, and in any case I'd like to reduce the encoding operations in order to maintain the original quality.

I wish I could use Final Cut, which unfortunately opens the files but doesn't work them...

Thanks a lot in advance and sorry if my question has been solved already.

Quality aside, iMovie can do all that you want(just a couple of cuts, fades to black and replace the original audio with an AIFF).

1. Convert the AVI movie to DV.
2. Edit the DV file in iMovie. Export as AVI.
3. There's no step 3.
