#1) It is a very complex application. It will take time to fully understand it and become fluent with it. iMovie is a nice alternative for someone with a casual interest.

#2) No. The application is expensive because of the aforementioned complexity and its intent for professional use. If you cannot afford it, then that is another reason to stay with iMovie.

Is final cut pro a good program for video bloggers to use, or should we just stick with iMovie? I was considering buying final cut pro, but then I looked at the price tag!

You may want to consider Final Cut Express HD if you need more than iMovie.

#1: do you need anything more out of your vlogging thingies? if you fully look into apples website with FCP's features and then hit up an apple store and play with it for a while you might be able to figure out if you want/need it or not. most likely iMovie is going to be just fine for you unless you have an extremely extremely very popular site out there wher eyou neeeeeed to start doing amazing things with it.

#2: is illegal and is not to be discussed on mac-forums...the moderators should have mentioned this.

ALSO!, there is a free 30 day trial of FCP you can download from apples website, go check it out
