    How to edit videos with Macbook??
    Ok, so my next project is to start editing videos I have....(some vids of my playing music, etc)

    Can I do this with iMovie?

    Let's say I have a 10 minute video clip....and I only want the last 5 minutes in the file that I will upload to my site....how do I do this?

    Also, what are some good softwares to create DVD Menus, softwares for video editing...etc....

    I realize I can make dvd menus with iMovie or whatever, but I am thinking something a little more professional.

    Well, iMovie 08 or iMovie 06 should be able to handle most causal video editing you need.

    It's a little more complicated now with iMovie 08 out though: It takes a different approach to editing than iMovie 06, so if you have them both, make sure you try both versions to see which one fits your head better.

    The next step up would be final cut express.

    iDVD is really flexible and great for prosumer grade DVD menus. The results look really polished, much better than the stock image menus you get with most video authoring packages.
    The next step up is DVD Studio Pro, but that's really for serious work (think Hollywood ).
