    iMovie or Final cut express
    I'm planning on ordering a Mac this week after the keynote, and will be getting the $99 final cut express. Going to start editing video, and was wondering if I should start in iMovie to get my feet wet or start right in with Final Cut? Also are there any good online recourses for Final Cut, because the tutorials on apple made it seem a bit over whelming?

    I would start right away in final cut, and check out they have a good amount of tutorials and they are very good quality, there are a good amount of free ones as well.

    There really wouldn't be much need for iMovie if you are going to by FCE.
    Plus, if you get used iMovie, then you can develop some "bad habits" with regards to editing that won't mesh too well with something a little more substantial like FCE.
